About the participant

I am currently a stay-home mum to two beautiful babies and am five months pregnant with my third. I feel it is very important for my family to have healthy food every single day. Cooking at home allows me to take control of what goes into my dish and stomach with less salt and less artificial flavourings. I am very happy to be able to share my simple home-cooked recipes with everyone.
