I concocted this recipe and I to find creative ways to make my baby eat eggs. I also found that it was a useful way to use leftovers fruits and fruit purees. LM loves bananas, but they have to be very ripe and she will often just take a bite or two. LM has also […]

Hubby and I just came back from a visit to London and Paris a couple of weeks ago. Whilst on the visit we went for lunch at The River Cafe in Hammersmith, London.
