Waitrose #MakesChristmas launch

An Early Christmas With Waitrose

It’s funny, the emotional attachment we develop to not just people, but to places as well. I’m one of those people who has these ‘happy place’ attachments, locations I go to feel content, where I feel at home and at peace.
Waitrose is one of these.


Thumbs Up To Muller Rice’s Remix

My kids are into desserts. Typical children, right?
It’s definitely not genetic as I’m not so much into sweet things; I have a secret tub of Jude’s Salted Caramel ice cream in the freezer for ’emergencies’ but I’d generally rather eat a bag of crisps pre-dinner.


Modern Mexico In London: SelfridgesXMexico

A little while ago I was invited to visit Mexico. Well, kind of.
I love Mexican food. The one terrible thing about living out here in Milton Keynes is that there’s literally no decent Mexican food to be had anywhere. We have a Las Iguanas, true, but if a ‘Latin’ restaurant doesn’t even make fresh guacamole as part of their offering then I don’t want to know.


MTT Travel: The Food of Thailand

You’d better believe that when I first sat down to write about the epicness that is North East Thailand the first word that leapt out of my fingers was FOOD.
Have we met? My name’s Alice and I’m a food addict. 

I went to Thailand with a fairly open mind about what I’d find there food-wise.

American Pancakes with maple bacon

MTT: Fluffy American Pancakes With Maple Bacon

Pancakes were very much A Thing for my brother and I growing up. I remember my mum making them, not just for pancake day but for special treats and to eat as Crepes Suzette at their ever so grown-up dinner parties. My brother and I loved them – we ate them very plainly with only caster sugar, still do – and it was one of the first things I learned how to cook myself.


The Trouble With Bread And A Wheat Intolerance

A few weeks ago I had an epiphany. This is slightly concerning to me because three times in the last month I have looked my mum in the eye and said “Mother, I have had an epiphany” and what if we only get a limited amount of epiphanies in life? I feel like I might be using up all of mine on thoughts to do with my lovelife and carbohydrates.

Huxley Motherhood

Hux’s Adventures In Weaning

WEANING. A loaded word if I ever heard one.
With your first child you’re desperate for them to take that next step in to gloopy gluey baby rice and are chomping at the bit to get started from month 4. With your second child you dread moving on to inconvenient solids and wonder if you can stretch a milk diet out til month 7… this was my experience at least.
