Okay, okay... I've been overruled and firmly put in my place. Under no uncertain terms, the kids have declared the Texan Bowl of Red to be the overall winner for the week. Yes, it is a fun, fast, light and easy meal, but what about my Leek & Potato Soup? Needless to say, Sonia was won over by the ease and simplicity of the Texan Bowl of Red, as well as the puppy dog eyes the children ruthlessly...  Read More

Apple has really been in the headlines a lot recently, and with the iPhone 4s coming out, the tragic loss of Steve Jobs and the huge release of the iPad 3, it's certainly understandable. This has made Apple, its business practices, and lessons learned of intense business and popular interest. In his book The Apple Experience: Secrets to Building Insanely Great Customer Loyalty , Carmine Gallo...  Read More

This is a guest post from the lovely glass artist Katherine Wilson at number8glass Times are hard, and almost everyone wishes they had more money coming in; whether it's down to redundancy, or just playing catch-up with inflation. Wouldn't it be great if you could turn that hobby, the one you love doing and spent ages honing your skills in, into a business? Whether you did it on on the side...  Read More

Everyone has their limits, limitations, obstacles, comfort zones and envelopes that need pushing. For most of us they're actually quite trivial, but it never feels like that at the time. If your life were a book, and you were the author, how would you want the story to go... For me, some of trivial things I wanted to overcome were speaking in public, a fear of heights and starting my own...  Read More

It doesn't get much easier than last week's winning recipe - I don't know about you, but I think I'm starting to notice a theme here. The close winner, coming out ahead due to shear convenience, was the Easy, Peasy Sauce with Pasta (or Gnocchi). This week, however, is going to be a tough decider. I mean, the Sloppy Joes and Gammon, Egg & Chips are just plain fun & decadent, respectively. The...  Read More

More and more women realise that working from home, whether starting their own business or otherwise, can be the best option following maternity leave. With the ability to balance family and work - on her own terms - being so attractive, companies feel threatened by the loss of many of their best people. If an effort to combat this show of independence, some companies are resorting to 'return to...  Read More

Regardless of your definition of success, there are, oddly enough, a great number of common characteristics that are shared by successful businesspeople. You can place a check beside each characteristic that you feel you possess. This way, you can see how you stack up. Even if you don't have all of these characteristics, don't fret. Most can be learned with practice and by developing a winning...  Read More

Let’s face it, there always seem to be people in the family that need to pull their weight around the house, and it might even be you *gasp!*. Whether we’re talking about our kids, our partner, or ourselves, we know that the balance for working around the house is rarely perfect. A study from the University of Southern California has even found that an imbalance of labour in the household...  Read More

I've had a few people ask me if I planned on including any vegetarian recipes in the Menu Mondays. While we often eat meatless meals, I've never really considered them as vegetarian simply because... well, we're not. However, it just so happens that last week's low-fat favourite can be enjoyed by almost everyone. If you would like to create a plan for yourself then please check back here soon...  Read More

Emily Fleischaker of Bon Appétit recently shared an article where she interviewed Karen Le Billon author of French Kids Eat Everything explaining how the book came to be and sharing her 10 simple rules. Four years ago, Karen Le Billon's young daughters were hugely picky eaters: Mealtime food fights were frequent, with pasta, fries, and buttered toast the only victors. Then the family...  Read More

Britt Michaelian posted at MOMeo Magazine this article which really gets to the heart of marketing for the small business or solopreneur. It’s a fatal flaw in our system that most universities and business books teach marketing from the perspective of big brands, not from the vantage point of small business and solo entrepreneurs. Marketing campaigns are talked about in terms of branding and...  Read More

Last week's favourite was a bit of a surprise for me. It's something we've never had before and to be quite honest it just seemed to... well, simple. However, when cooked, the flavours really came together and it was very good. It just goes to show that good meals don't actually need to be that complex. This week we'll be revisiting an old favourite in the very basic Shopska Salad. Sonia and I...  Read More

The author of Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert has thought long and hard about some large topics. Her next fascination: genius, and how we ruin it. Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses -- and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius. It's a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk. ...  Read More

There seems to be a prevailing sentiment that when we: ‘achieve our long-term goal’, ‘make the big sale’ or ‘our ship comes in’ we will finally be able to pause, take a break and smell the roses. Absolute rubbish – waiting for your day in the sun is the surest way to reach the ‘finish line’ feeling hollow and deflated. A study conducted on returning astronauts showed that those who had already...  Read More

You just can't go wrong with this warming, filling and family-loving sausage and lentil casserole. As soon as it starts bubbling away on the stove we start getting a steady stream of visitors asking 'what's cooking?', 'is it ready yet?', 'can I just have a taste?' All in a ten minute period. "Hi Scott, just wanted to say the family loved the sausage and lentil casserole last night - we'll be...  Read More
