Prior to becoming a mummy, I worked in London in marketing for over 10 years in the fashion, entertainment and retail industries. A brilliant time in my life, but after the birth of my little angel – it didn’t feel like the right place to be anymore. So we upped and left around 6 months ago. Now living closer to family again makes the world of difference and I don’t think I could move back! But would I want too??
After my daughter ‘A’ was born other things changed too – I starting paying more attention to the nutritional content of the meals I was cooking which I never really paid much attention to before. I was also keen to wean her with aromatic spices, something that is frequently done amongst Asian parents, but surprisingly there were no cookbooks available with baby-friendly recipes.
I couldn’t find what I was looking for so I decided to create my own nutrient-rich versions of not just traditional Indian meals, but food from other cultures – British, Spanish, Italian etc all with a hint of Indian running through them. It’s amazing how much variety you can add in your family’s diet just by adding different aromatic spices to everyday meals to jazz them up a little.
So this brings us to present… blogging about Asian-themed baby food, finger foods, toddler meals and family meals – all cooked using aromatic spices and no overcomplicated cooking processes; I like to cook meals that are easy.
And now back at work, my love for cooking with nutrient-rich foods is even stronger! With less time on my hands, I am conscious that my meals not only need to be nutritious, they need to tick all of my boxes including being:
- and satisfy the whole family every evening.
So the recipes on this blog also perfect for the working mum.
I hope you and your family enjoy cooking and eating my yummy recipes. I know we have.
