I find that I love my time at home. It gives me more time to make delicious meals for the family and spend time with the kids. I very rarely buy prepackaged snacks. I generally always make my own treats and sweets. They are much better for the children. Many of the recipes I have are quick and easy. The kids love them!!!

  • Fresh is always best for cooking!


  • I am going back to basic cooking like my Grandma used to do. I just bring down the levels of butter & sugar or use honey instead (never use sugar replacement items as they are chemical based). I try to stick to basic ingredients & use fruit & veggies from our garden which we grow with no chemicals (I don’t mind sharing a bit with the critters ever now & then). I am using my old Day to Day cookery book as it has so many great recipes in it.


  • I try to go fresh where I can, with the exception of things like yogurts etc. If you have the time it would be lovely to see some quick time saving recipes in the recipe section, because lord knows most of us are living fast paced these days, and any time saving tips are always appreciated.


  • I love how much my kids get excited when I start to cook because I have to be in the right mood or nothing turns out but when I am, they will ask for their favourites and always willing to try anything new I make. Definitely make my time in the kitchen feel worth it.


  • I love my weekends off….my daughter and I love baking healthy treats for snacks and her lunchbox.


  • I wish I had the time to do this more often….I enjoy being in the kitchen and the snacks you can make taste so much better!


  • go fresh


  • Much better then all the preservatives in packets these days.


  • Absolutely. Home made has definite health benefits. Mind you, pre packaged can have mental health benefits!

    • LOL! Very true – need stand by food in all situations!


  • Better for the budget and fun to cook too.
