Passionate about

Simple, Tasty, Real Food

I love creating recipes to hopefully make your life a little easier and tastier!

Years in the making

I've been wanting to start a food blog for years but never actually hit 'post'. Since becoming a mum, the daytime hours have hit fast forward and I found it tricky to think of balanced purees/meals/snacks for Mini Jones as well as tasty dishes for Mr Jones and I - and I love to cook! I felt it must be especially tricky for those who are not so passionate about cooking, or who don't have the luxury of time to experiment. Its always a learning curve. I would love to inspire others to cook from scratch and to begin this journey with honest, real food.

Creative with Recipes

Being brought up in a household in the English countryside, most of our meals were made from scratch. It was second nature to be inventive with recipes, especially during the summer months when the vegetable patch dictated what we ate and led to the need for inventing new dishes from the bumper crops - how do you make runner beans exciting for the fifth meal in a row?! Leftovers were always used up too, and I am passionate about the drive against throwing away perfectly good food, not only is it such a waste, but expensive too!
