Strawberry and Vanilla Valentines Cake

I think there is nothing more thoughtful than appreciating those around us by baking something delicious for them! After all, when we offer a sweet treat, people are more likely to reciprocate with sweetness. Moreover, nowadays Valentine’s, being celebrated today, is not just a lover’s holiday and we seem to be taking our cue from the US, where it is celebrated by everyone: children send Valentine cards to their parents and teachers, friends treat each other to gifts and even co-workers celebrate Valentine’s together and express gratitude for those around them. There is something more romantic and touching about baking a cake for Valentine’s than, for example, individual muffins. The thought of sharing a cake brings everyone together. When it is freshly baked, even before they see it, guests are greeted by the aroma that is only unique to baking.

Crustless vegetable and ricotta pie with Maltese Gbejna

‘This ‘pie’ is so incredibly quick to make. It is literally an all in one and the ground oats give it a great texture and absorb the liquid that the raw vegetables release to give it body and remove any hint of sogginess. Serve warm or cold, so incredibly delicious and packed with vegetables. It is quick and easy to prepare and economical and has been one of the most favourite recipes of this year’

Yoga with Pamela and Daisy

It was so beautiful and surreal to watch Pamela doing some warm up exercises before she was due on air with her 6 year old daughter Daisy.

And after her second visit, I can say that I am convinced that yoga with kids is a positive and beneficial activity for a parent and child.

Pamela and Daisy were so relaxed and focused on their activity that they are synchronized, in complete unision with each other and there was something magical about the bond between them.

With the such a lot going on in the studio, the crew, the rest of the guests on the show and the filming, I could not help but notice that Daisy was completely oblivious to all the commotion around her. It seemed that her mother was the only person in the room.

Quality time with your kid/s is so important and yoga with kids certainly gives you that.
