I'm a work from home mum who loves to feed her family good, nutritious and delicious meals. I'm also all about not wasting food so I love to find recipes that use odds and sods out of my fridge, vege box and freezer. My daughter is 4 and she is the light of my life, always (or almost always) smiling. We are a family that really sticks together, my DH and I live with his parents, or in the same property and we love spending time with them. We have a spoodle named Cocoa (can you guess my favorite craving) and when MIL is home we have a spaniel named Sid. 2 cats lurk about the property but are not very domesticated. My favorite cookbook is anything from Nigella Lawson, I have all but her latest and cook regularly from them. I'm also addicted to zaar and find that I'm doing heaps of things from here since inspiration is only a couple of keystrokes away. Add that to a blog reading addiction (mostly food related) and you have the best recipe for ever expanding waistline and ever decreasing worry about same! More recently I have discovered that I can't tolerate gluten and so have been changing up my recipes to accommodate where its been needed - or using GF pasta and the like with old favorites that don't need any other rejigging.
