The day I returned from maternity leave after giving birth to my first son I was made redundant. I was expecting to be laid off but the biggest shock to my system was adjusting to being at home fulltime with my child. Being a stay at home parent is inspiring, demanding, loving, tiring, unrelenting and overall great fun but I kept on saying to myself that this wasn’t the career path I wanted to go down. I never intended to be at home fulltime. I still yearn to be in an office in contact with adults all day. Not be at home juggling housework, entertaining children and cooking meals.
In an effort to become more comfortable in my role as a stay at home mother I started to revisit recipes and activities that my own mother and grandmothers did with me. This blog is about celebrating not just my own escapades but also my family’s.
The boring stuff:
This is a personal blog; all of the recipes and photographs on this site are my own and my copyright, unless I state otherwise.
If I do a review of a book or an item you will find it in the review section. My opinions are my own and I’m not paid to give them. If you don’t like a review I have given, you have the right to reply.
I love to receive comments and feedback but please be aware that abusive or insulting comments will be removed.
Can I submit my product for review?
If you would like me to review your product/service simply email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Please be aware that I will give my honest opinion however you will have the right to reply. I do however only review products or services that I’m likely to use. I don’t want to waste your or my time.
Do I offer catering services/sell my food anywhere?
No, I don’t. My food is for my family (and frequently friends) to enjoy, I don’t offer catering services.
What else do you do?
I write a food blog for mykidstime which is updated monthly along with their food ezine. I’m always open to new opportunities and if you are interested in me writing for you, please do drop me an email to wholesomecook (at) gmail (dot) com.
