Creamy sweet potato with salmon and petit pois

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

It’s always challenging to get small children to eat more fish. Luckily, apart from fish and chips and fish fingers there are plenty of other yummy options to get them to eat fish AND veggies. Sounds too good? This recipe is always a hit for my 19 months old, he loves sweet potato and tolerates salmon and petit pois. The …

Winter pregnancy – must have clothing items

In Style by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Since I’m expectant with Bobcat’s little brother or sister (we will only find it out later), I decided to shop smarter than last time. A lot smarter. No impulse buys, I know now what will defo look silly, what are the must haves and things you really, REALLY don’t need. Luckily nowadays we don’t have to wear our partner’s shirt …

Chocolate muffins with white choc chips – with a minimum of sugar only

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Not that I’m obsessed, but Bobcat gets very little sugary stuff. Much less than his friends. He’s quite hyper anyway. The other day we were invited to a birthday party. (I mean, Bobcat was invited, got party bags and a thank you note for the present later, NOT ME.) He was snacking on some fruit pieces when the birthday cake arrived …

Cauliflower Mac’n’Cheese – great way to get them to eat more veggies

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

This recipe is a great version of the much-loved, original Mac’n’Cheese, one of our favourite childhood meal. It’s creamy and crunchy at the same time: the whole family will love it. It also takes no time and very little effort to prepare it. The good thing about cauliflower is, that it’s packed with Vitamin C, K and B6, fiber, protein and …

From London to Marseille by train

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

You know the kind of man that has this thing for trains? And for funiculars and trams? I’m married to one. So when the tickets went on sale for the first Eurostar ride from London to Marseille, he naturally booked our premium seats. And one for Grandma, so Bobcat spent nearly 2/3 of the 7-hours-long travel time on her lap. …

Montreux. Pretty scenery, bad food and marmots. Oh, and Freddy Mercury.

One of our early holiday with the little one took us to Montreux. Husband booked the flight tickets back at the January BA sale, never been there, sounds jazzy. (Sorry…) what could possibly go wrong? It’s Switzerland. Frenchy stuff with german efficiency. Well, the reality shows the other way around. Stayed at the Golf Hotel Rene Capt, a bit like …

Winter in Kew Gardens

In Life, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

The evening walk at the Kew was organised by husband to get the little one spend some quality time with Godparents. Yepp. Past his bath time and nearly his bed time as well, Captain Bobcat all wrapped up in the cold (and as Mummy has predicted) fell asleep in his pram at 7 pm during our dark garden walk. Since …

Decided to dedicate a blog post to this hotel as I was really impressed. Slight mischap by booking 1 night on Expedia well ahead our trip and later decided to arrive a day earlier, so booked a separate night on Expedia again. Not quite get it, dear reader? Well, the owner who presumably jumped in to help out the reception …
