Very Buttery And Very Cheesy Mini Bites

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com26 Comments

This is such an easy and yummy snack to make, that even small kids could help. Bobcat loved being in charge of the rolling-pin and sprinkling the sesame seed. All over the place. And eating raw dough of course. (Who did not like that as a kid. Or even as a grown up.) These cheesy bites are great for parties, for …

Day Out With Thomas The Tank Engine At Mid Hants Railway – Watercress Line

In Reviews, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com14 Comments

We have visited the Watercress Line a couple of times already as both daddy and son are big train enthusiasts. However, we never attended a Meet Thomas Day. For those whose never been there, the Watercress Line is located in Alresford, Hampshire. It’s a heritage railway which was saved by enthusiastic volunteers in 1973, and Watercress Line was re-open as a tourist attraction …

5 Things I Didn’t Know Before Started A Blog And The Future 

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.com14 Comments

I have arrived late to the whole parenting blogging scene, probably around 10 years too late. But I don’t really mind, as I started to blog to keep my brain busy between trips to the playground and trying to feed my picky eater. So I started to write about our travels with our little son, share my favourite vegetarian recipes …

Spicy Mushroom Stew With Home Made Gnocchi

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com12 Comments

In most Eastern-European countries, stew is everything. Hungary, where I’m from, is no different, we have all sorts of stews including goulash, which Hungarians eat as a soup. I know, we’re weird. The cuisine is of course heavy in meat dishes. Luckily, a lot of meat based dishes can be turned into a lovely vegetarian meal quite easily. My mum …

Savoury Butternut Squash – Broccoli Muffins With Feta

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com7 Comments

These are just perfect to make on a rainy afternoon, and eat them all up whilst they are still lovely and warm. I have a very picky toddler and seems like my baby girl is following her big brother’s footsteps. Lucky me. Not. I was hoping that at least one child of mine will eat properly. Nope, I can keep …

15 Fun Things To Do In Vienna With Small Children

In Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.com9 Comments

I love Vienna. It has been voted to the most liveable city of the world for a reason. I’ve visited plenty of times, however, never with my children until a few weeks ago. Naturally, this time it was a completely different experience, just as we did expect it to be. Not so much of Aperol-Spritzing and Museum Quartier visiting. You …

Review: From Earth To Earth Bamboo Toothbrush

In Green & Ethical Living, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com2 Comments

I was very much looking forward to test this toothbrush. I completely ruin a toothbrush in every 2-3 weeks. Don’t ask me how, I probably just brush like a maniac. Which means, I go through a lot of toothbrushes a year. Unfortunately, I never quite got used to the electric ones, I just miss my own brushing action. Lots of …

Green Tea Cookies With Matcha And Mint

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com10 Comments

I’m a bit of a matcha addict lately. Not just as a tea (once a day at least), but I also love combing it with sweet flavours. Like cakes and ice cream. It adds the subtle bitterness of the finest green tea and a lovely, bright green shade. I already tried it with cream cheese chiminangas (find my recipe here: …

Kid’s Risotto With Salmon, Courgette And Lots Of Cheese

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com2 Comments

One of the my little guy’s tolerated (i.e. cooked until it’s unrecognisable and well hidden under mountains of cheese) vegetables is courgette. Probably, because it’s a little tasteless. Therefore, I try to use it whenever I can. It can go into a lot of different dishes, including risotto. The other evening, when I was desperate to find a way to …
