RECIPE | Broccoli & Tomato Muffins

1st May 2019

These savoury muffins are always a hit with my three boys, I started making them when I was weaning Ted as they were good finger food. You can change the vegetables if required. They are great for picky lunches, to go with soup or for picnics. They can be frozen so I usually keep some in stock, defrost the night before and hey presto, when you get them out at your picnic all your friends will be impressed at what an organised mum you are!


Broccoli Muffins



  • 1 small head of broccoli chopped.
  • A handful of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 225g of plain flour
  • 140g of grated cheese
  • 160ml of milk – I use whole milk now but if it’s for weaning a young baby you can use formula milk.



1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

2. Cook the broccoli until tender, I usually steam it and then mash it up with a fork.

3. Mix together the flour, broccoli, cheese, tomatoes, oil, beaten egg and milk. The consistency will be a moist, sticky dough.

4. Spoon into a 12 hole cake tray.

5. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden.

Children’s Wellbeing | Kids these days – they’ve got it made – or have they?

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.

REVIEW | Locksley Distillery Gin School – If you love gin you MUST to do this!

“THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!” my friend Kat yelled to me over the sound of a gently bubbling still with a massive gin grin on her face. For me, it probably doesn’t quite trump my wedding day or the birth of my babies, but it’s not far off! We became master mixologists, creating our own gin recipes before distilling ‘Madam Geneva’ in our own miniature stills.

RECOMMENDATION | Darkhorse Stratford, East Village – East London

Hidden in the heart of the East Village, part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and just a stones throw from Stratford station, are a handful of restaurants and bars. And right in the middle is Darkhorse bar and restaurant. It’s described on their website as a ‘modern European restaurant with Italian and Spanish influenced food wrapped in a British attitude’.
