Food for the Fam: Cinnamon Honey Popcorn

It’s basic, but I’m going to tell you about it anyway: popcorn. Healthy-style. The reason I’m sharing this is that this week, when I was working in-house for a London-based client, I overheard some people (OK, really young people) lamenting the price of a packet popcorn at Pret. ‘Didn’t you know you can buy the corn kernels […]

Guest Post: Weave a Wonder Box – Easy Craft 'Makes' for Kids by The Artworks

I’m so excited to start what’s going to be a new Little Lewes partnership with The Artworks, a playful, inspiring holiday and half term art activity club for kids run by Julie McLaren and Clare O’leary (see bottom of post for all the details of this half term’s planned fun!). My older son has done a couple […]

Sussex Coastal Culture Trail: The De La Warr Pavilion and Beach at Bexhill-on-Sea (And the Upcoming 'Ladybird by Design' Exhibition)

This past weekend, when there was […]

Food for the Fam: Gwyneth Paltrow's Sweet Potato + Five Spice Muffins (Slightly Adapted)

I’m going to kick off this recipe help/swap idea and start the ‘Food for the Fam’ series with a recipe I’ve transparently adapted (nicked) from Gwyneth Paltrow’s wholesome cookbook ‘It’s All Good‘. Yes, I know she’s vile to some, but the book is great and there’s even a few things – banana ice cream, marinated tofu, banana pancakes – […]

New Series: Food for the Fam and the Fussies (And a Call for Help!)

And so to my second ‘thought’ for 2015: to feed my children with more variety, freshness and thought. To explain, this is two-fold, because my youngest child is the world’s worst eater. He’s a sugar-addicted, crumpet-loading, non-adventurer who will NOT EAT a vegetable in any form. So in his case, it’s about encouraging him to eat, […]
