Join me on my parenting journey, creating simple recipes for the whole family to enjoy along the way. Here on the Hitchens’ Kitchen blog I share my attempts to juggle a full time career, a pre-schooler, a nursing baby, a husband and try and find some time for my hobbies, my friends and also run my house—which in itself is no mean feat.
Like most mums this involves being a chef, maid, book keeper, secretary, cleaner, entertainer, events organiser extraordinaire (I LOVE a party!), personal shopper, driver, First Aider… you get the gist; I’m sure you can relate. I try and keep all my plates spinning, but when one does occasionally come crashing down I document it with honesty.
I did Baby Led Weaning with Oliver and now he eats anything and everything. I’m doing it again with Charlie now; all of my recipes are suitable from six months old, perhaps with a few small adjustments. I’m usually helped in the kitchen by my Sous Chef, Oliver. I’m so pleased that he likes cooking and eating as much as I do.
Check out my Instagram and Facebook page for cooking demonstrations, live cookalongs, Q&As and reviews. You won’t find any fancy food or artfully scattered spinach leaves on plates here, I’m just a normal mum making food for my family.
I founded a Baby Led Weaning Ideas, Recipes and Reviews group on Facebook when I started weaning Oliver, it’s now a really supportive community. Please feel free to join us here.
