I really hope you enjoy this video, I’m no chef, but Ollie loves our simple tomato sauce and all the other easy dishes it makes!

The Meatballs recipe is a more child-friendly version of my favourite by Jamie Oliver. You can find it here:

The lasagne is an adaption of the Easy Lasagne recipe in his Ministry of Food Cookbook which you can find here:

I would also highly recommend this fab kids cookbook from The Chippas:

Here’s the link to the little silver trays for freezing too:

Ollie’s individual little baking dish is from Sophia Victoria Joy. We each have our own :-)

For the Veggie Packed Tomato Sauce we use approximately:
Heaped teaspoon of oregano
Bunch of basil
6 sticks of celery
5 onions
2-3 tins of chopped tomatoes
– but you can add as much or as little as you like, courgettes and peppers work really well in it too!
– it’s really good with garlic but too much of that gives Ollie a sore tummy :-/

For the Veggie Packed Bolognese, we use approximately:
500g minced beef/pork or both.
Equal quantity of chopped vegetable mix
Beef stock pot
2-3 tins of chopped tomatoes

Q & A

How old are your children?

I have three lovely boys. The youngest two are mine, and I have a step-son, Archie. At the time of posting this they are 8 years, 2 years and 5 months old.

Where are you from?

Right now we live in rural Herefordshire, England. Although I grew up in Wales and Colin is Scottish…hence my slightly strange accent.

How long have you been blogging/vlogging?

I’ve been blogging for 2 years now, but this vlogging thing as all very new to me. I also work full time in the cosmetics industry (although currently enjoying maternity leave) so it’s very much a passion and a hobby more than a job.

Are you paid to say this?

I haven’t been paid for this particular post, but sometimes I do work with brands on sponsored collaborations. I will always clearly advise when content is sponsored.
Integrity is at the top of my list of priorities and I would NEVER put my name to something I didn’t believe in. I have turned down a lot of opportunities to do exactly that.

Are you a brand?

Do you have a product you think my viewers and I would be interested in?

I would love to hear from you:
