What is all this about?

I am a working mum to four children.
Finding time and motivation to run a household can be lacking at times, so finding tips and tricks to make life easier is always a plus!
cooking mess with kids
My kids can be picky eaters, and my youngest son has cystic fibrosis, who requires a specialised high fat/high salt diet, so finding recipes that are nutritional for the family, but are easily able to be “boosted” with fat and salt for him can be difficult.

Luckily, I really enjoy cooking!

This site will have recipes for weight loss (which is something I am personally struggling with), time-saving recipes and the downright evil (but really, really yummy!) creations. All recipes have been personally tested in my household. I will mostly post those that are successful, but may have to share my dismal failures for us all to laugh over (I know I’m not the only one out there that has some hilarious kitchen horror stories!)

I will also share craft ideas. Most will be fun family activities for you to try with the kids, but I also love making other things for personal, even practical use!

Anything that can save time, or works really well, guaranteed, I will share it here!

If you have a recipe or project you would like to share, you can contact me at bellasblog@hotmail.com. All submissions will be credited within the post in your name.

I also write another blog, which explains our family’s battles with my children’s special needs (with the occasional general musings thrown in, and frequent guest bloggers)…you know…just in case you are interested!

Bella 🙂
