La vie en Famille

La vie en family just sums up our lives living abroad. We don’t always get to share those really big moments with your family and therefore capturing the if you can is kind of important. What is life without family, love and little cuddles anyway? I took a few photos of the Beaty family expecting their second baby pretty soon.

Favorite festive treats

Favorite festive treats bring back so many memories of my Childhood Christmas. No our Noël experience in France has been somewhat different and sometimes challenging, but we remained optimistic as this season allows you to be. The smells of Speculoos spiced lattes, Nutella filled crepes and glue wine. When it comes to celebrating a French Christmas I have it pretty down to a T for this year to come. Come and read a bit more and get a few ideas for your Christmas table.

Visiting Magical Brugge

Visiting magical Brugge was certainly a beautiful traveling destination. This enchanting little town brings all the warming things into one. Good food, coffee, chocolates and an awing view to boot. November was a great time to visit since it was not that cold or too busy just yet. Traveling with a baby certainly made things more challenging, but so worth it still. All things considered, it was very, Lekker indeed!

Dressed in LORAINEROUX

Dressed in Loraine Roux gives you a closer look of the fearlessly stylish brand of Loraine Roux, The LORAINEROUX Collection. One word comes to mind when I think about this woman – exceptional. Since I have known Loraine, she had done things with excellence. It is no wonder that this lady of valor has started her very own fashionable clothing brand. I am was so happy to see that she even extended her graces towards the breastfeeding mothers out there, because let’s be honest, not a whole lot of fashion houses caters for this market. Not only are her breastfeeding dresses beautiful and stylish but timeless as well. Here is a closer look at her current range as well as her new spring range that was launched this past week.

Hazelnut jam buttercream cake

HAZELnut jam buttercream cake is quite a mouthful to say and to enjoy because there is no taking small bites of this delicious cake. I made this beauty for a baby shower that was supposed to take place but instead the little princess made a surprise entry right on the day of the baby shower. Hazelnut cake was quite fitting for the lady in pink because she was given the pretty name Hazel. What are the chances right? But the perfect way to celebrate was with cake indeed!

Autumn Beef lentil stew

Cozy beef lentil stew is one of my latest favorite recipes. The weather has been pretty indecisive just as Autumn aught to be I guess. I have switched my cupboards layered with winter goodies, but the sunshine has been pretty sweet lately. What makes this stew so perfect is the fact that its low carb, healthy and packet with winter veggies that will keep you fuller for longer when the winter chills do decide to come along!

Ten easy dinners

These ten dinner ideas have literally saved me a couple times. Dinner was on the table almost every night thankfully due to these easy recipes. Becoming a mother has been a full-time job and other duties like cooking took a backseat for a while, but once I got into the groove of being a mother and a wife it all just seemed a bit more effortless. Come and have a look at my summary of the last seven months of motherhood and of course some yum recipes to try for yourself!

Vegan Coconut Milktart

Vegan coconut Milktart is the real deal, I assure you. Can you make this beloved dessert healthy? Yes indeed. It’s a traditional dessert that resembles something close to a custard flan. In my house, I try to healthify a few recipes, even though I do love the old favorites just the way they are. I love coconut milk and have a few cans lined in my cupboard to whip up something when the time calls for it.

Marie biscuit Brownie Caramels

Marie Biscuit brownie caramels are a combination of my two most favorite sweet treats. When I was younger my mother would make a batch Marie biscuit brownies also known as “skurwe jantjies” in Afrikaans. This batch was special like ever batch was because this dessert is my dad’s favorite. Therefore we had to be either super sneaky to cut off a slice and place it back in the fridge on the exact spot or ask very nicely after supper.
