After a long day at Gulliver’s World in Warrington, I needed something I could fill Baby Button with that wouldn’t be too hard to put together after a long day. The answer? Fish pie.

The second in my BabyLed Spread meal series is a quick one. I’ve had to squeeze lunch in today between a group this morning, a recovery nap after a bad night and a certificate presentation with the Lord & Lady Mayoress this evening.

I recently got back into the kitchen – having moved house and acquiring a better oven. Nothing felt better than busting out my baking gear and giving some BLW (Baby Led Weaning) recipes a go! Today I’m sharing the Blueberry & Banana Muffins that went down so well with Baby Button last week. I didn’t follow a recipe for these,…
