Growing up I always loved my Mum’s home-made stew, so today let’s make a vegetable quinoa one!

When I was growing up one of my favorite dishes my Mum made for our family was a slow simmered hearty stew. Of course, it was made with minced beef, but I am sure back then there were no near as many hormones and chemicals in the cows most people eat today. I always enjoyed the taste of beef, but when I was around the age of 15 I Read More Willy B Mum

The Blueprint Cleanse, oh how I love you!

A few months ago, while Miles Storm and I were out and about in Williamsburg Brooklyn I stumbled upon a bottle of Blue Print Cleanse’s freshly pressed organic Cashew Nut, Agave, Vanilla and Cinnamon drink (AKA known as White Juice). It was amazing and we both fought over the last drop…. seriously! I took a photo of that moment and put it up through the Willy B Mum twitter feed Read More Willy B Mum

Roasted Sweet Potato & Garlic Hummus

We eat a lot of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) in our house. We bake them, put them in salads, make soup and create the traditional yummy Middle Eastern dish – hummus. Hummus is basically a concoction of olive oil, lemon, chickpeas, sesame tahini and garlic, and is supposedly one of the oldest dishes dating back to Egypt 7000 years Read More Willy B Mum

A Farmers Markets is a wealth of knowledge for Little Ones

My family really enjoy our Sunday trips to the Rhinebeck Farmers Market, upstate NY, where we spend every weekend. Miles Storm especially loves the experience, having visited the market with us since he was born, it is something he gets very excited about.  This past weekend he particularly enjoyed tasting some of the produce. First he tried Read More Willy B Mum

Miles Storm unexpected first day at a USA beach

Today, as it was so hot, I decided to go and visit my girlfriend and her 4-year-old where they live in the gorgeous seaside town of Rowayton, Connecticut. Rowayton is around 45 miles from New York City on the Long Island Sound. It is a sleepy aquatic sailing town which is one of the most expensive communities in the United Read More Willy B Mum

Apple, Coconut, Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Ever since starting this Blog 6 months ago, I have become a domestic goddess with an emphasis on cooking (as my girlfriend Yfat put it). It is in part that now being a mother I want the very best for my Son. It is important to my husband and I that he eats good, healthy, mainly organic clean foods. Secondly, I also need Read More Willy B Mum

Yes, I am one of those “Attachment Parenting” Mums.

I never thought that I would still be breastfeeding my 22 month old Son, but I am. Years ago, I actually thought that I would never breastfeed at all as I worried about what it would do to my body, selfish yes I know. It was easy to say then as I really had no idea of the differences in cow milk formula and Read More Willy B Mum

Strawberry, Spinach, Toasted Cashew Nut & Avocado Salad Yummy!

We always have so much produce in our refrigerator at home, and although my family eats an abundance of fruits and vegetables it is, at times, challenging to eat everything before it goes bad.

This afternoon for lunch I decided to take the ingredients we had available and turn it in to an awesome healthy Read More Willy B Mum

Amazing Vegetable Soup, perfect for a Little One with an ear-ache

A few days ago we realized Miles Storm was not feeling well, and when we checked his temperature it was just over 102 (poor little guy). We took him straight to the ER at the local Northern Dutchess Hospital where we were for 3 hours waiting to see what was wrong with him. He just laid there on the bed as limp as limp, which was so heart Read More Willy B Mum
