Lemon Poppyseed Overnight Oats

Lemon Poppy Seed Overnight Oats

What’s your typical breakfast routine? I actually want to know. I sometimes wonder how in line with the rest of the world I am when it comes to breakfast – I feel like I know so many people that say they either don’t eat breakfast at all, or they have […]

Baby and Me Banana Waffles

Baby-and-Me Banana Waffles

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a baby-and-me recipe, since Wally is now just eating whatever we’ve been making, and I’m not focusing on baby friendly meals and snacks – BUT – I have to post this one because I can’t keep it from you any longer! What do […]

Yellow Rice

Yellow rice, you guys. YELLOW rice! It’s so good! If you read my latest 10 Thoughts you’ll know that I’ve been having fun going through old cookbooks and trying new recipes. One of these said cookbooks is my copy of Cook & Enjoy, a long-time favourite from South Africa. While […]

Green Monster Muffins

Meet the newest member of my green monster family – the muffins! Actually, they’re not new in any sense, since I’ve been making them since Oscar started eating solid food, BUT they are new to LIMO. I got the original recipe from a friend a few years back, courtesy of […]

Crockpot Minestrone Soup

Crockpot Minestrone Soup

You guys, my 3 year old has the most incredible memory. It’s hilarious! It’s almost become a game. This morning, I noticed that the earplugs I keep by my side of the bed were missing (my husband SNORES), and I asked Oscar if he knew where they were. He didn’t […]

10 Thoughts for Thursday

10 Thoughts for Thursday

1. Cookbook revivals! I think my “nesting” urges have been kicking in, and I’m finding myself sorting through cabinets and cupboards that are crammed full of STUFF. One of them had some cookbooks I had totally forgotten about. Stay tuned. 2.  HEARTBURN. The latest pregnancy complaint – they say to […]

Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ok, so I know every food blog you visit probably has a “best chocolate chip cookie” recipe, and I’m not going to try and convince you that these cookies are the BEST EVER, but I will be straight up honest and say they are REALLY good. They’re soft and chewy, […]

cheesy lentil bake

Cheesy Lentil Bake

So, how was your Valentine’s Day? Did you go for dinner, or stay in? Do absolutely nothing? We took it easy and made a fancy dinner once the boys were in bed – lobster tails, grilled steak with mushrooms, and creamy parmesan risotto. I put some peas in the risotto […]

Strawberry Nutella Galette

Strawberry Nutella Galette

Happy Galentine’s Day! ♥ A day for ladies to celebrate ladies. How great is that?! Even though I have a wonderful Valentine of my own, I still love this idea of dedicating a day for women. There are so many mixed emotions and opinions surrounding Valentine’s Day that I think […]

Glazed Grapefruit Scones

Can you believe it will be Valentine’s Day in 5 days!? Whether you’re celebrating or not, you have to admit that it definitely snuck up this year. I seriously don’t know where the time goes. Cliché, followed by cliché. But so true! This past weekend Etienne and I hosted a […]
