We’ve told you about Cooking Them Healthy before, right? That it’s one of our favourite foodie websites, chock full of fab family-friendly recipes and nutritional advice that is not only super-useful, but – unlike some healthy food websites –  easy to make, inexpensive and totally delicious. Well now, you can be part of the action as on 23rd April, the lovely co-founders Georgie and Jo, a chef and nutritional therapist, are running a brilliant cooking demonstration, in which they’ll share their top tips on nutrition, how to save time when cooking and handy hints on how to use your freezer, as well as showcasing a number of their favourite recipes. The demo is being held at Paradise by Way of Kensal Green in West London between 12-2.30pm and tickets are £45. So if you’re in town on that day, fancy a bit of inspiration from a thoroughly fab duo and a visit to one of London’s coolest pubs, then please book here!…

Recipes from The Art of Eating Well by Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley

We all want to eat well, right? The thing is it’s not always as easy as it should be. Short for time and short on inspiration, cooking can turn into a chore, meaning that you can gravitate towards easy old favourites that aren’t always the best (read healthiest) option. But, the good news is that there’s never been a better time to want to eat well. From Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop to Voguette Calgary Avaninso, there are plenty of health gurus out there, but the newest – and certainly among the most relatable – duo are sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley aka Hemsley + Hemsley.…

Easy Easter for lazy girls

Easter is definitely a holiday I can get on board with. It involves chocolate, for a start. My own little bunny already has her basket at the ready and was keen to ascertain that the Easter Bunny knew she’d be at her grandparents for the Easter weekend. I’m not suggesting that you come over all Martha Stewart (I cannot even dream of  maintaining that level of domestic perfection), but there is definitely some fun to be had – especially with/for small people.…

How to…cook for children

One of the best discoveries I made last year was Cooking Them Healthy, a brilliant blog set up by three mothers (sisters Georgie and Minnie Soskin, and nutritionist Jo Saunders) providing inspirational recipes, nutritional advice and ideas on how to encourage your children to eat healthily. One of the things I love most (apart from the recipes which are really delicious) is their A-Z of Health focusing on specific ailments and the foods that can help alleviate them (which is probably just as useful for adults). With delicious recipes and invaluable information, it is my new must-read site when it comes to cooking for my boys……

How to…throw a Christmas party

Cheers. And welcome to part one of the W&W guide to hosting a (festive) party to remember. If there is one thing we are in favour of at all times, it would be eating, drinking and merry-making. Now, we are not here to tell you how to cook Christmas luncheon. We’re all about the party. The cocktails. The nibbles. The easy-peasy cheatsheet. The easiest way to have yourself a merry little Christmas party is to serve something sparkly, something soft and mulled wine; with a cheeseboard and mince pies (preferably mini mince pies for added chic factor). Add a bit of Michael Buble/Bing Crosby and you have yourself a party.…

How do you like them apples?

One of the things I love about October (aside from Halloween – more of which next week, we promise) is  not this relentlessly drizzly weather, but what I shall elegantly refer to as ‘the harvest thing’. Harvest festival always warms my cockles and returns to me to my grey pinnafore wearing schooldays. I am currently enjoying a glut of apples. Both sets of parents have trees (cooking apples) and we have a tree (singular) of tiny, surprisingly delicious eating apples – and I am keen not to waste a singe pippin. We are currently ladling cooked apple and blackberry onto our morning porridge/yoghurt, but I am on the hunt for inspiration. My Smitten Kitchen cookbook was my first port of call – these wholewheat apple muffins are calling my name. Here’s Deb’s (yep, I like to think we’re on first-name terms) amazing photography and recipe:…
