In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

Sure enough, I’m not alone with my mum telling me that baby powder is a must. I should use it after bath in the evening and in the morning to help to maintain dry skin and avoid rashes. Especially in the summer months. And the wonderful “baby” smell of it! Throughout decades the baby powder’s smell was the very definition …

As a wife and a daughter, I believe women should provide encouragement and support to the men in their lives to check themselves for the signs of testicular cancer. The charity have just completed surveying the British public, revealing that on average only 32% …

Fresh Spinach and Pear Salad With Feta Cheese And Pomegranate

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

I’m a big fan of salads combining fruits, vegetables and cheese. I could eat them every day. When you’re having guests and you want to prepare something different from the usual green salad, this could work very well as a good-looking, tasty and not your everyday starter dish. There’s not much work with it either, ready in 15 minutes. The …

We only use disposable (bio-degradable) nappies during the night and when we’re out and about for a longer time (longer than half a day). The 2 main reasons we switched to reusable diapers are: they helped him with his eczema. Essentially, we reduced allergens getting in contact …

Pasta With Salmon And Broccoli In Cheese Sauce – Great Toddler Meal

I normally have this in the freezer all the time, for Bobcat and for the days when he’s extra picky and won’t eat anything substantial. Pasta can always come.

Rich Lentil Soup – One Pot Super Meal

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

I love rich, hearty, almost stewy soups, without meat of course. I’m talking about the ones you could enjoy with a piece of crusty bread and some red wine on a cold day. This lentil soup is like that. Lots of vegetables, some hot chili and green spices. Lentil is a core vegetarian ingredient in my view. Rich in fibre, folate, iron …

In Green & Ethical Living, Life by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

When my son was diagnosed with eczema, I got really scared. It was mild, but we didn’t know (still don’t) what was the cause, so it was hard to figure it out how to control it.

Spanish Rice With Grilled Halloumi

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com4 Comments

Spanish rice is one of my favourite side dishes: a lovely, warm mediterranean flavour which you can pair with a lot of otherwise bland food like grilled fish, fish fingers, veggie fritters and patties (or meats). It’s very versatile, I normally pair it up with grilled halloumi for myself and chipolatas for husband. Takes about 30-40 minutes to prepare it, …
