A super simple and delicious cheese and onion quiche

Recently I decided to make a cheese and onion quiche to use up some double cream and eggs that I had about to go past their best. I love frugal recipes that use up leftover items in the fridge. This recipe is really simple and whether you’re catering for a party or just want something different for dinner this is going to be a real crowd pleaser! You can make your own pastry or use shop-bought if you’re looking to save time/effort.

40 great ideas for your Yumbox

Being organised is something that I love. It helps me feel in control, allows our family life to run smoothly and it even helps us make healthier decisions. Meal planning keeps us away from the too regular takeaways and I like to spend time each evening thinking about our meals for the following day. For the last month or so I have been giving my daughter a Yumbox, most days, for lunch. I like to fill it with a wide variety of foods and today I want to share 40 great ideas for your Yumbox! Skip straight to the end if you’d like to download my free printable!

Personalised lunch box from Petit-Fernand (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted the featured items in exchange for coverage. Our daughter has FPIES, which means she has quite a few allergies. Because of this, and being ill multiple times in the first 2 years of her life, Daisy isn’t the biggest fan of food. At times she can be incredibly fussy. For many months we would have days where Daisy would eat like a bird, and hardly any days where she would want to eat well. Because of this I have taken to making her a packed lunch daily, even when we are at home. I find that offering Daisy lots of variety increases the chance of her eating well that day. Also, it means I can use up leftovers from the fridge and we can cut down on our food waste too. Having a personalised lunch box also means it’s clearly Daisy’s lunchbox if it gets left at relative’s houses.

Souper Swap Challenge with Baxters soup (AD)

AD. I’m a busy Mum who works from home full-time. Being self-employed is something that I am incredibly proud of. However, sometimes it can be all encompassing. I have had a few bouts of illness recently and these have knocked me for six. Daisy has also had a sickness bug and generally our home life hasn’t been great. One area that I realised I was lacking was looking after my own food. I have been great at making Daisy nice meals but neglecting myself in the process. When Baxters contacted me and offered me some Baxters soup how could I say no?! I was given enough soup to see me through their 2 week souper swap challenge and this is how I got on…
