New Cookbook, Clever Batch

Ta-dahhhh!

This cookbook chronicles the skill-set I have learned in the kitchen as a financially squeezed, time-pressured mum. Batch cooking has opened up a whole new world for me; a world without kitchen cuffs, wailing children, superfood sonatas or pans to scrub.

Care to join me there?

Lots of tips to put the ease back into freeze

As an under-caffeinated, financially cramped, time pinched mum, my kitchen management needed re-evaluation. Sometimes I got it right. But most evenings I felt like a Winegum in a combine harvester. Being short on time, money and patience, I had a problem.

I wanted to cook badass nourishing meals but I didn’t want to cook every single night. I wanted to reduce the honking stress at 6pm in our home. I wanted to spend less time in the grocery store looking for arcane ingredients. And I wanted to spend more time at home, high-fiving my genius. I didn’t need another freaking meditation app. What I needed was to get through the month without maxing my Visa or adrenal glands.

So these days, my freezer plays an Oscar-worthy role.

GDPR Lovebomb!

The rules around personal data are changing. About stinking time too, I say!

The way in which you have signed up to my newsletter is GDPR compliant, so as long as you’re happy to hear from my pots and pans again, there’s nothing you need to do. Thunderous horrah!

If you would rather not hear from me again, please feel free to press the unsubscribe button at the bottom of my newsletters to opt out at any time. No hard feelings. You’ll always be welcomed back into my kitchen.

If you’re curious as to what information I collect from you, there’s a fancy new Privacy Policy assurance page up on my blog. Please do read it. The short answer? (1) Your email address, for newsletter purposes only (2) Site analytics, such as referral websites.

Do I have a team of nymphs working for me, who might steal your personal email address? No. I am a one woman show, with occasional tech meltdowns in which a very talented, trustworthy (and GDPR complaint) colleague canters to the rescue.

That is all my friends. Thank you for reading this far.

6. You’ve stocked up on jade eggs for your Yoni.

7. Traffic jams are an opportunity to catch up on kegal exercises.

14. You’re not passive aggressive about other people’s food choices. Much.
