Chocolate Coconut Kiwi Fruit Icy Poles – Yummo!

The other day while online I stumbled across Cathy the ShowFood Chef’s Blog. While I haven’t explored Cathy’s blog so much, I was totally inspired by her Kiwi Fruit covered icy-poles and decided to try them out for myself.

My 2.5 half year old LOVED this icy treat and literally tried to eat 5 of them at one time, which was very cute! They are really really easy to make, and a great activity to have your Little One help you out with. They are also a healthier alternative to most icy-poles you would buy in a store. Of course, I used all organic products and I love that it is all vegan.

Miles Storm’s first 3D Movie – The Croods!

Last week, as a guest of the Mummy-Duo The Moms, Miles Storm and I had the opportunity to see a private pre-screening of the children’s movie The Croods at the AMC Theater on the Upper West Side in Manhattan.

It was my 2.5 year old’s second movie ever, and his first 3D-movie experience and he handled it surprisingly well. At first he did not really understand why he had to wear the glasses to see the effects of the 3D, but after me gently reassuring him he finally figured it out. From there on in, he was smitten. He happily sat through the whole movie, laughing at times (which was adorable) and throwing in a few “Wow Mummy, look at that” at some of the effects. He was particularly enthralled by the flying birds and butterflies throughout the movie and put his hands up, like many of the children in the Theater, to try to catch them.

I love cauliflower, it is absolutely one of my favorite foods on the planet. I love it roasted, as a salad and mashed just like potatoes. I have always wondered about making it as a base for a soup and this week while on the Treehugger Website I saw a recipe for “Roasted Cauliflower Soup with Aged Cheddar” and it got me thinking…..

Resource every Mum & Dad in NYC should be aware of – City MD

Having your first child is a wonderful experience filled with Up and Downs. Highs filled with wonder and joy, and Lows where you are in frightening situations where you are at a loss and not sure what to do. One of the most frightening experiences personally is when Miles Storm is not physically 100% and we have to take him to the hospital ER. In the last 2.5 years this has happened say 6 times for a variety of reasons like high fevers, falls and vomiting. One fall even lead to him have a precautionary cat scan. Scary right?

For the Love of the little “True Blue” character known as GRUG!

GRUG began his life as the top of a Burrawang tree (Macrozamia communis) that looks more like a Grass tree (Xanthorrhoea). Resembling a small, striped haystack with a face, he is fascinated by the world around him and solves everyday problems creatively and without fuss. When dancing instructions are too difficult to understand, GRUG  invents his own dance and calls it “The GRUG” — Wikipedia
