Time saving tips

Cooking is hard with children around.  Here are my tips:

  • Meal plan! Boring but it can help.  We use a planner like this to track activities and meals.
  • Make the most of your favourite recipes with eat your books.
  • Use some genius tips.
  • Make meals in advance and stock your freezer with leftovers (labelled with the date frozen).
  • Store fresh herbs for longer in your fridge – put stems into a glass with an inch of water and cover with a small plastic bag tucked into the glass.  Change the water every few days.
  • Use scissors to cut food one handed.  Very useful with a baby on your hip!
  • Use a large bowl for rubbish to save trips back and forth to the bin across the kitchen.
