PANCAKE DAY

20160208_162918

Hi all, I hope you didn’t forget about Pancake Day. It is one of those dates in the calendar that you don’t want to miss. I am a big fan of pancakes and make them a few times a month at least but they always taste extra delicious on Pancake Day. Also, you can and should get carried away  and don’t think ‘should I go for sugar, honey, jam, fruit, lemon, yoghurt or…’ , use it all.

Emi gave us a recipe for pancakes back in October so please check if you haven’t seen it yet.

It’s delicious, healthy and most important so easy to prepare. I am celebrating Pancake Day in style, going all for it. Have an amazing day and week everyone.

WEEKEND FAMILY FUN

I don’t know about you but I am always busy. My day is too short. It’s less than 2 weeks to Christmas. I can’t change my daily routine too much but I still need to include some activities and traditions that Christmas brings. My favourite is baking and decorating Christmas tree. Get your kids involved by helping out in the kitchen and making their own Christmas decorations. We made with my little one, gingerbread cookies this year. They are delicious and easy to make. You can use pretty much anything that you have in the kitchen to decor them.

Have fun! Emi x
