Baby shower games: Love ’em or loathe ’em?

How do you feel about baby shower games? I’ve attended a fair number of baby showers in my time, have planned and hosted a baby shower for a friend, and have also been the lucky recipient of two baby showers myself.

Little tiny baby feet

I love me some little tiny baby feet. And even baby feet that aren’t so little and tiny. My youngest child was born with super-long feet that wouldn’t fit into any of the tiny little booties that were knitted for her.

Shitten mittens are the answer!

Yes, this is a real product! Shitten mittens are designed to keep your hands well and truly protected when cleaning up the baby poop (or any other poop for that matter).

My birth story: Never again I said

Here I was, strangely serene, lying in bed on this beautiful Monday morning having had intermittent contractions for the past few hours. I’d sworn off having babies after number three was born at a whopping 10’4” and I nearly bled out. Never again, I said

Cauliflower parmigiana

Here’s a spin on the classic layered eggplant dish that’s associated with southern Italy and is particularly popular in Naples.

Why you need a girls’ weekend away

I just returned home from a girls’ weekend away. When I say “away”, I mean primarily that I was “away” from my children, staying in a bach with two friends who were also away from their children for the weekend.

Berry choc mousse

I designed this to not only look amazing but taste good too; at the end of the day who wants a boring fruit plate, or even just air, when everyone else is having a wicked chocolate treat? It takes five minutes to blitz up and plate up.

Birth story: My induction

At 36 weeks pregnant, I was told that I would be induced the following week as our little man was estimated to grow to be 13 pounds at 40 weeks.

My birth story: He wasn’t breathing!

Woody Allen once said, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” Anyone who knows me knows I like to make people laugh, so in 2013 I did exactly as Woody Allen said

Corina’s birth story

When my husband Martin and I first started dating, I told him in no uncertain terms that I didn’t want children. I was so afraid of the pain of childbirth

Black Doris Mascarpone Ice-Cream

This is one of the best ice-cream flavours I’ve ever had, and my home-made version is even better than the bought version as it’s so much more ‘plummy’ and not overly sweet.

Carrot cake bliss balls

I love carrot cake, and clearly I love bliss balls. Combine these two concepts and you get carrot cake balls. Enough said.
