After motoring around the U.K. in “Bradley” the Mini Cooper for eight years we have finally had to upgrade to a bigger vehicle to accommodate baby Adeline and her accessories. Fortunately having a bigger car means we’re looking to do more staycations in the U.K. with the Lake District being on the top of our list (finally!). Any and all recs are welcome .

Our first staycation as a family was to Windsor with a pit stop for lunch @thehindsheadbray. I loved their smart casual pub vibe and more so these scallops 👌🏼👌🏼.

Started the new year working on old intentions. For at least two summers these old family photos have been living in a bag waiting to see the light of day. With this handmade leather bound photo album I got for Christmas I’m planning to store some of my mom’s memories from the days of film. I love how it feels a little like time traveling going through them ☺️.

I also love that the cotton paper in the album is made from a charity that promotes women’s development in rural areas of Rajasthan, India. If anybody is looking for a photo album I highly recommend this one from @paperhighuk.

New Year’s Day noodles 🍜

Clearing out the fridge from Christmas lunch excess means somen noodles with red miso coated pork belly (a pared down version of the recipe in @saveurmag) for me, a veggie chicken pot pie in the oven for the Brit and homemade chicken stock bubbling on the stove.

As hard as I try not to waste food I still have a long way to go. It’s something I want to improve upon this year along with broadening my cooking & ice cream making horizons 😋. #wherearemytastetesters .

What are you look forwarding to the most for 2018?

Just couldn’t let 2017 end without a last #cinemagraphSunday entry. We’ve had a few guests over last week and I couldn’t help plying them with my coveted stash of peppermint bark and hot chocolate. Am literally counting down the days when I don’t have to be dairy free any longer 🤪.

To my knowledge there’s nothing Christmassy about a chicken pot pie but my craving was strong so I decided to make one from scratch and have my inlaws suffer through what will now be our Christmas Eve tradition. The caveat is that since we think the baby has a dairy intolerance I’m not able to eat this 😑. #whoknewdairyisineverything

Thank you @williamssonoma for my pie dishes!

Can you recall the first book you loved that got you into reading? My earliest memory of a book I was fascinated with was The Phantom Tollbooth which is about a boy’s adventure through a magical land and learns that what he thought was boring in everyday life isn’t so boring after all (totally underselling it here but even as an adult I love that book). I was an extremely shy kid and often preferred to got lost in a story rather than play with others. Reading has been such a huge part in my life that I can’t imagine my world without it which is why I was so thrilled to hear about the work of @worldreader, an NGO that gives e-readers to children in developing countries with culturally relevant stories. As we move into the new year I’m looking forward to following along on their work and look into ways I can help out. Thanks for introducing me to such a great program @emames7 📚.

I wish we had more time to roam around Windsor Castle but it was bitter cold and there was a tempting glass of mulled wine with my name on it elsewhere. But I’m so glad we had a chance to visit St George’s Chapel (where Prince Harry is getting married next year) just as the afternoon light lit through the stained glass. Another highlight of the Castle was Queen Mary’s dollhouse built in miniature scale with working plumbing, electricity and even cars with working engines. That’s pretty impressive if it was constructed recently never mind in the early 1920s!

The Thames River in @visitwindsoruk was calm just seconds before until this feisty flock swooped in. Meanwhile, inside the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel I was marvelling about the existence of a mulled wine afternoon tea for the tenth time and almost missed the action.

As an expat in England I’ve never heard of the Stir Up Sunday tradition of families making Christmas pudding with a silver sixpence in it on the last Sunday before December. Each member takes a turn stirring the pudding and making a wish for the year ahead. Whoever finds the sixpence on Christmas Day will enjoy wealth and luck. I love the idea of it, has anybody partaken in this tradition before?

The @royalmintuk was kind enough to provide me with their 2017 silver sixpence for my first homemade Christmas pudding using their recipe found on - where you can also purchase the silver sixpence. I’m excited to try the recipe and start this tradition for Adeline’s first Christmas. Just wondering how I might rig it so she’ll get the silver sixpence 😜. #sponsored

There are a few things I look forward to every week while I’m on maternity leave... the @deliveroo driver showing up with my @nemnemrestaurant bun bo hue & bun cha order is one of them 😆. #addicted

Double fisting coffee today while we try to pack for our trip to Boston to spend Thanksgiving. Cannot wait to introduce Adeline to my family and prove to them once and for all what a little beast she is 😅.

On the blog there’s a new post on my time in Yorkshire with @Taylors & @creatingforgood and what our collaboration, Extraordinary Journey, is all about. Link is on my profile. #sponsored #CFGExtraordinaryJourney

Sharing a slice of yesterday’s splendid afternoon with @taylors & @creatingforgood for the 2nd workshop of #CFGExtraordinaryJourney. @belleannee was at the helm hosting a cooking class with incredible dishes that compliment the flavour notes of @taylors’ Origin range coffees.

I could hardly contain my excitement when I plopped two juicy, Berebere-spice crusted beef tenderloins on the skillet to sizzle. It was the dish I looked forward to most but once we sat down and incorporated the honey roasted acorn squash and @ottolenghi lentil salad (from @womenforwomenuk cookbook) it was obvious that this was the best meals I’ve had in quite some time. We capped the meal off with a vanilla soufflé topped with coffee creme anglaise.

@mondomulia also spoilt us with this Olive oil & Orange cake made from the @womenforwomenuk cookbook. I basically left the event wanting to recreate all the dishes we tried 😋.

{#ad}This photo tells the story of my whole week last week. I’ve spent much of it on the rocking chair with Adeline in one arm while the other free hand has been flipping through thick cookbooks as I plan our Christmas menu for a family gathering (so excited to host it in our new home but at the same time what was I thinking?!).

All the while I’m fuelled by the new @nespresso limited edition Variations Confetto collection with candy-inspired capsules designed by artists Craig & Karl. @Nespresso recently introduced three new festive flavours orangette, snowball (coconut) and licorice - which is perfectly timed to get me in the spirit of Christmas lunch planning.

Spending weeks stuck at home must be finally taking a toll on me, I’ve been in a severe state of wanderlust all day! All I have in the books is a staycation out in the countryside and a trip to Boston for Thanksgiving. Who has exciting travels coming up? Let me live vicariously through you.

On another note, I’m doing my first ever giveaway on the blog this week. It’s one of my fave gadgets for journaling, an Instax SP-2 printer that allows you to print photos from iPhone and other wireless cameras. The giveaway is only available to U.K. residents, for more details click on the link in my profile.

I never would have guessed how daunting it is to take the baby out for a stroll by myself. Dealing with her acid reflux not only means a severe sleep deficit over the last few weeks but also confinement for fear of her wailing through the streets of Islington. But enough is enough and today marks the first time we set out for a stroll outside our neighbourhood and for the first time this season I experienced Autumn.

Not that I ever need an excuse to try a new taco recipe but when you gain an extra hour with daylight savings AND the baby cooperates with taking an afternoon nap... cajun shrimp tacos with avocado salsa it is! 🍤🌮💃🏻

Currently craving...

I haven’t had much time (or energy) to cook lately so naturally we’re now best friends with the @deliveroo drivers 😋
