Our mission

Welcome! This website is for those of you who are seriously struggling to put meals on the table. If you are looking for haute cuisine, you are at the wrong place. If you are on a very tight grocery budget, and are looking for more than beans on toast every night, keep reading…

At the moment, food prices have soared everywhere, and funds are tight for normal folks. It’s hard to feed your family a reasonably balanced meal and still keep it fresh. I say right now  – I am not a qualified chef, or even a dietician, but I have had years of experience in making a buck stretch until it’s eyes water:). My family has never, not even once, gone to bed hungry.

For many years now, we have been struggling just to eat, so I have had to get creative in the meals department. The main thing to remember is that you can only do so much – it is not always possible to eat five fruits or veg a day. Don’t beat yourself up if you can only do three – some is better than none.

Don’t be afraid to get creative, sub out stuff you don’t have (or eat!) and replace it with something that works for you. My family have learnt never to ask what’s for dinner – the answer is generally “whatever it turns out to be” My approach is that a recipe is a general guideline, not a rule book. Experiment, try new things – that is the fun part of cooking!
