QUIZ: Is Your Toddler Ready for the Potty?

8 Mar

ARE you wondering if your kid’s ready to kick the nappies?

I worried about it non stop. Until one day my husband sat Felix down on the potty and he did his first big boy wee. We were all ecstatic! (Note: If you celebrate your child’s first time on the potty by jumping and cheering, wait until they finish peeing first.)

It turned out Jose was much more in tune with Felix’s readiness than I was. If you’re like me and not quite sure, here’s a quiz I created for you. It’s based on the (multiple!) books I read on potty training and our own experience with Felix. Hope you find it useful. Share it if you do!

You’ll find it on any supermarket shelf next to the normal ground coffee… Continue reading

COOKING: Churros

15 Nov

Johanna Bergstrom:

Cold mornings, rain, wrapped in a duvet on the sofa watching old cartoons? It’s a good time of year for churros and chocolate, the ultimate Spanish Sunday brunch!

Originally posted on :

Sunday morning, churros y chocolate for breakfast… welcome to real Spain!

If you’ve never had a churro before, basically you are looking at a long, slim, slightly crunchy donut.

Churros are traditionally served with a sprinkling of sugar and dipped into a cup of steaming hot chocolate. 

Usually available early in the morning at local cafes, they can also be taken away wrapped in a paper cone and enjoyed at home. 

But churros are really easy to make – and you’ll find they disappear pretty darn quick off the plate! Here’s how to prepare your own. This recipe serves about 4-5 people.
