Cutting Food Waste

A few months back I had a HUGE kitchen declutter, when I say huge I am really not exaggerating. It was epic, if you have read my blog for a while you will know I am big on decluttering – I love it.

Three Simple After School Snack Ideas

If your household is anything like mine, after school is kind of mental. The kids come in with bags, books and coats being flung everywhere. They start thrusting a variety of home work diaries, forms to fill in and empty lunch boxes in my direction before the cries of starvation begin. Yes, it’s all very dramatic, then the race is on to grab them a quick snack. Aiming for something that will satisfy those hunger pangs whilst not completely filling them up before dinner. These are my go-to quick after school snack ideas, so I wanted to share them with…
