Quick family recipes, food and living, green living tips, family-friendly travel, kids' parties and much more ...
Food and Family is a collection of writing about children, family life, good food and recipes. Created as a space to share all the advice, cookery books, fun fiction, recipes and natural health ideas that have supported many of us on the eventful journey from starting a family, with all the joys and stresses that brings, to the demands of everyday survival with school age children...always a challenging but rewarding task.

Food and Family specialises in quick and easy recipes to feed the family, simple baking recipes (an excellent rye bread recipe) and delicious recipes for family celebrations, as well as information about healthy food, natural health remedies, kids' toys made from natural materials, suggestions for home-made kids' parties without the sugar high Ė all the things we are aiming for in our families.

Aiming for but not always achieving, we most of us will have to admit to our original, idealistic standards of nutrition slipping as our children left toddlerhood behind, but in FOOD AND FAMILY we hope we have found a happy medium. We all recognise that plastic toys still all too often crunch underfoot, comfort food, chocolate cake and biscuits are still too delicious to miss, so chocolate cake recipes will find their way onto our recipes page!

Life is for living. Live in the now as much as you can!
