Hello, my name is Alison and I live in Peebles in the Scottish Borders. Welcome to my website dedicated to showing you that you can my eat well for less with my healthy dinner recipes. I want to give you family dinner recipes which are easy, quick and most importantly tasty. They are also healthy and kind to your wallet, as tasty, healthy food does not mean you need to shell out a fortune.
I don’t know about your house, but often the cries of ‘What’s for tea?’ start at breakfast time with my two boys. If you are anything like me you will have spent time gazing at the supermarket fridges and shelves hopefully expecting an idea to magically appear on the shelf.
I grew up with my Mum cooking everything virtually from scratch. While there were a couple of dishes that I really did not like, liver and onions – still don’t like it – and pearl barley in stew, the rest was tasty and I deemed her a good cook. The kitchen in our house was where lots of delicious smells emanated from.When dinner was cooking I would invariably lift up all the pan lids to see what was going on. I hoped that by doing so the food would be ready quicker, as being told dinner was not for another 15 minutes seemed like a lifetime. Especially when I had declared myself ‘starving’.
I now have two hungry boys of of my own. I have never cooked two meals, one for us.
If you ever have a comment or question, please leave me a message. I always read your emails and am really interested to hear of your family’s favourite recipes.
