Maria Montessori was an Italian physician and professor of anthropology at University. In the early 1900s she presented a revolutionary approach to education. Dr Montessori’s research work was based on observation of children, which combined with her background in medicine led to her method and approach to education. Her approach is child-centred, which means a view of the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, prepared environment. Read More
As you may know by now, we love beans in our house. We eat them in all forms pretty much on a daily basis. This recipe is a slight twist to the classic chickpea hummus, but I promise you it tastes equally delicious. Read More
This is oat milk. Diego drinks this as a milk substitute.
Milk allergy in infants is a topic close to me. As I have explained here, when my son Diego was 3 and a half months old he developed very severe eczema, so I was pleased when a couple of weeks ago my husband came home and showed me this article. Read More

My husband found out about Mudchute Park and Farm. It is a farm in the city, as contradictory as it sounds. We decided to go since it’s relatively near to where we live and also because we like to take Diego, our son, to visit nature as much as possible.
This recipe is by far my son’s favourite dish. It is very easy to make and super delicious. Who doesn’t like pasta and tomato sauce, right? Pasta and tomato sauce is such a comforting dish and it can even attract the fussiest little buds. Shhh… you can hide many veggies in it. Read More
I was inspired to bake this loaf because, since my little one started weaning, prune puree has been by far his favourite. Prunes are dried plums and are an excellent source of fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Also, like other dried fruits such as apricot and raisins, prunes are a good source of iron.

I love hummus, not only its creamy texture and delicious taste, but also how versatile and nutritious it is. Really, you can add any herbs, spices or veggies and it’s very unlikely it would go wrong. I used to buy hummus from the supermarket, but often they are not so tasty. When you make your own hummus you can add so much goodness and flavour to it. I remember I always had to add some extra spices like smoked paprika or olive oil and herbs, to the one’s I bought from the supermarkets. Now that I make my own hummus I add as many herbs and as much flavour as I want to.
First of all, I want to clarify that by ‘full time mum’ I mean ‘stay at home mum’, because I know that when we become mums, we all are mums 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for the rest of our lives. Read More
I was walking by my local street market on Saturday morning, when I saw a deep red, beautiful bowls of raspberries. I was wondering for a while what recipe I could make with them and I couldn’t stop the temptation so I bought a bowl.
Later on, in the early afternoon when my little one took his nap, I was craving something sweet with a cup of coffee (I really love having ‘me time’, and these days when my little one naps is when I find the time for it). So, I quickly prepared the kitchen and using ingredients that I already had in my kitchen cupboard, I created these super delicious, spongy, yet gooey muffins. Honestly, they were so good! I enjoyed them while they were hot, with a bit of coconut yogurt and my cup of coffee. My little one also enjoyed his muffin when he woke from his nap (he had it with cold oat milk). Read More
