Easy Eggnog recipe everyone will love!

Nov 26, 2018
Just a Mamma Easy Eggnog

Christmas is a time for family, slowing down, counting our blessings and totally forgetting about the calories! Eggnog is a MUST and after trying loads of recipes, we’re sharing our favourite – tweaked just a bit to make it extra tasty and decadent.

Preparing Homemade Baby food: mommy and baby

As promised, the follow up post to #MOMMING101: INTRODUCING SOLIDS. And today’s all about preparing homemade baby food. Baking, roasting, boiling… There are loads of cooking methods yet steaming has stayed the number one choice when it comes to preparing baby food, locking in most nutrients. This being said, some foods are definitely more flavourful when baked so don’t forget to give alternative cooking methods a go as well. Consuming raw foods are also a healthy option as long as the…
