Apples are a great source of Vitamin B and C. Rich in dietary fibre, they should always be eaten with the skin on. Eat as is, add sliced to a peanut butter sandwich, serve with dips or as dessert with natural yogurt.


In the midst of the varied difficulties we are currently facing, there has never been a tastier opportunity for many of us to  ‘stand back’ from ready  meals and takeaways and ‘step into’ our kitchens!


Okay, so we don’t all have modern ‘mega’ kitchens in ivory with all things integral and bi folding doors leading to amazing outdoor living with patios, decking and elongated lawns. It may not be big enough to count as the ‘focal point’ of the home or indeed to ‘swing a cat’.  However, the majority of us have a hob, an oven, a couple of pans and a modicum of workspace?


Go on, step in!

About Me

I am a freelance Home Economist, Creative Recipe Developer, Editor, Tester and Blogger.

With a BA in Home Economics, I spent many years in recipe development working with major food companies supplying Marks & Spencer within the chilled sector.

Passionate about food and unadulterated cooking, I am committed to using seasonal, naturally sourced ingredients where possible.

I have been a regular guest author with Farmison & Co, an online retailer of the finest chef ingredients and a recipe tester and reviewer of food products.  More recently I have been endorsed as a BBC Goodfood Show Blogger and have written recipes for The National Osteoporosis Society promoting Vitamin D and Calcium in the diet. I have also undertaken recipe editing for Seasoned Pioneers, providers of premium spices. In addition, I can provide retailers with regular/promotional blogs and recipes tailored to their specific needs. I currently work as a freelance recipe tester with HelloFresh, global leaders in providing fresh meal kits to the home.

Whether it be for a new cookery book, magazine or recipe box, I can ensure that your recipes are finely tuned so that any novice can cook  them with outstanding results!

I am also experienced in tasting events and the promotion of artisanal food products at exhibitions.

Originally from Scotland, I now live in Yorkshire with my husband and two children.
