Our new arrival – baby Max

I just wanted to share an announcement with you guys about the loveliest new arrival in our lives – baby Max.

He appeared on December 29th, narrowly missing Christmas and New Year’s eve birthdays which was rather clever of him and we couldn’t be happier.

He’s pretty cute huh? He does take up an awful lot of time at the moment so my posts may be a little sporadic for the next month or two but I will be back in full force after that, I promise!

Rhubarb, ginger and rosemary cordial

This fruity cordial is packed full of flavour and is great as a refreshing drink with ice and soda or if you are feeling more adventurous splash it into your gin and tonic or a glass of bubbly.

Cheesy lentil sausage rolls

These cheesy lentil sausage rolls are perfect for a meat-free Monday dinner or great to serve as finger food. The flavours are simple and punchy and even the heartiest carnivore won’t miss the meat. My husband didn’t believe me at first when I said they were vegetarian.

Serve them up with a tomato chutney like this one, or heaven forbid, some barbecue sauce….

Plantable paper hearts

This eco-friendly favour project is great for outdoor weddings. The hearts are made from recycled paper and are embedded with seeds so your guests can plant them when they get home and grow lovely herbs or lettuces. Once the plants grow, the paper will just compost away.

You can also try different shapes and colours to suit other occasions such as Christmas. I’m thinking green Christmas stars or trees, or simple white rounds for birthdays.
