Super simple slow cooker recipe!

Friday, February 01, 2019 | By Rachael Archer
I don't know about you, but I love my slow cooker! When you're a time-poor mama, this trusty kitchen appliance can really help with food preparation. I use my slow cooker at least once a week. I shared this recipe on our Facebook page a couple of weeks ago, and it was such a hit! It's actually one of our personal favourites, so we know why people enjoyed it so much :) Here's ..

5 things I can't live without in the kitchen!

Thursday, November 23, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
I looooooove to cook, but I don't always have a lot of time to do it! Little Noah is well and truly on the move now, so I'm spending the majority of my days chasing after him and rescuing him from random precarious positions that he's got himself into.... So spending as little time as possible in the kitchen is important to me. And there are some things in the kitchen that ha ..

How to get rid of the "mummy tummy!"

Thursday, October 26, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
It's inevitable that our bodies change after having babies. And yes, while being pregnant and bringing a baby into the world is an absolute gift, it's ok to want your body to look a little firmer and tighter, too. I had our second baby, Noah, 11 months ago, and I'm still working on reducing my "mummy tummy." My once relatively toned midsection is now home to some stretched skin  ..

What's in my fridge?

Thursday, July 27, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
Meal prepping. If you've been following me for a while, you'll know it's something I love to do! Basically, a couple of times a week, I "shop n chop," ie I shop and then on the same day, I chop and cook up all of our main meals for the next 3-4 days. It takes a couple of hours, but it's so worth it! (No more scrambling to make dinner at witching hour)! Anyway, this ..

The simple way to survive witching hour and get dinner on the table!

Thursday, June 08, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
Witching hour. It's a b%$#&, isn't it? Noah has grown out of it now, but my goodness, those first couple of months were tough! With a toddler and a newborn to bath, dress, read to and get ready for bed, I can't imagine what I would have done if I'd needed to cook dinner, too. Before Noah was born, I spent some time preparing meals so when he arrived, I didn't have to thi ..

I don't have time to cook!

Wednesday, March 15, 2017 | By Rachael Archer
I can't tell you how many times I've thought this to myself, especially since Noah was born! With a toddler and a baby in my care, plus a very busy husband who isn't home at nights throughout the week, I've had to work out the quickest ways to get food on the table in my household. And not just any old food! Food that's healthy, but also tasty, and full of variety, too. This week ..

2 quick and easy breakfast recipes

Thursday, December 08, 2016 | By Rachael Archer
I love having meals in the fridge, pre-cooked. We never really cook as we go. Spending a little bit of time twice a week to prepare our meals for the next few days really does take the pressure off the day to day routine, especially when you have 2 young kids in the house. Last week, we decided to have frittata's for brekky and I made 2 different versions to get us through the week.  ..
