Hi, I’m Jo and I’m thirty something, Polish, mum to two gorgeous boys (7 & 4) and a wife to a very cool Englishman who, so it happens, has his own oven cleaning business (and no my oven is not spotless and sparkling, well maybe twice a year…sigh…). We all live and work in beautiful Selsey in West Sussex.
Food, cooking and baking have always been at the top of things that interest me. Once really adventurous in my culinary endeavours, since having my boys I have been focusing more on simpler family fare, trying to be interesting, healthy and nutritious at the same time. Do not let that fool you though, occasional “posh nosh” does make appearance as well.
I love cookery books, food magazines, kitchen gadgets, crockery etc. so you can only imagine my birthday/Xmas lists (no diamond rings there 😉). I hardly ever follow recipes to the letter and mostly treat them as inspiration to prepare my own concoctions and that is what you will find here. I am also very budget conscious and hardly ever throw anything away hence using up odds and sods from the fridge and the cupboard is a very common occurrence.
I’ve always wanted to find a platform where I can keep and easily access my recipes. The idea of sharing them with others, made starting a blog even more appealing and in early 2017 I took a plunge.
My blog and recipes I feature are primarily aimed at families who like to eat fresh, wholesome meals without faddy ingredients that cost a fortune. I blog recipes I cook at home and always try to east as seasonally as possible. In January 2018 we’ve signed up for weekly veg delivery scheme to help us eat better, fresher and also to make more conscious food choices and to limit our use of plastic as much as possible. Everything I cook and then blog about has been tested on my three men and only recipes that has got majority approval and will be added to our menu (or has been on it already) are shared on here!
I hope you enjoy my recipes and some ramblings that go with them and will be popping over to see what I’ve been up to in the kitchen on regular basis. If you’ve made any of my recipes please please get in touch and let me know how you got on and of course whether you liked them. Feel free to leave a comment on any of my recipe posts or get in touch via e-mail or via my contact form.
If you don’t want to miss out on any of my new recipes, make sure you subscribe to the blog. You can also see what I’ve been up to via my Facebook , Twitter or Instagram. Likes & shares are always really appreciated but of course not necessary. 🙂
