I’m a 43 year old mother of 3, and stepmother of 2. My kids are 25, 24 and 13 and my step daughters are 18 and 22. My eldest 2 have now left home, the youngest is still at home and we now have my niece living with us.
I was a young mum with very limited cooking experience and struggled when it came to providing a healthy balanced diet on a budget! Over the years I’ve had quite a few disasters but through listening to advice wherever I could get it and shopping around a lot I am now a fairly accomplished cook.
There's very little waste in my house as I bulk out meals, use up leftovers, shop around and bake all our treats! I started Feed Your Family as I saw so many young families struggling in the current economy and I wanted to help them to feed their families healthy, home-cooked food on a limited budget.
Earlier this year, after lots of encouragement from my amazing followers, I decided to look into writing a cook book. I was so lucky to get it snapped up fairly quickly! And as with everything else in my life, I thought I would share my experiences with you - every step of the way!
