to my little cooking and baking space on the web. My name is Candace and I’m a single working mother of a teen and a tween living the good life in the West Midlands. As well as my two children I also have 4 cats, a rabbit and 8 chickens. We love our chickens very much and 4 of them are ex-commercial hens living out their retirement with us. Their eggs regularly feature in my cooking.
As if I didn’t have enough to do already in life I decided it would be a good idea to set up this food blog. I have been blogging for nearly 6 years now and my family blog was becoming a mismatch of things and in order to streamline things, I set up this blog for all our recipes, food reviews, money & time-saving tips.
Here you will find a selection of the type of home cooked food we love. We don’t eat ready meals and most days you will find me cooked a hearty meal for my family but on occasions, I take out a pre-home cooked meal from the freezer from times of batch cooking. I really do love the ease of batch cooking and having easy meals available in the freezer for those days when I don’t have time to cook from scratch.
I love good, fresh, wholesome food but I also like simplicity and saving pennies where I can.
I also hate spending hours and hours in the kitchen and I’ll share some of my time-saving tips here too.
