My daughter Isabel is in her first share house in Melbourne. When we talked about how I could send her some favourite family recipes to cook in her own kitchen, Izzy’s idea was to set it in this format. This way, the recipes are easily shared too ! So if you come across a recipe that appeals, please try it out. These are tried and true, mostly from my mother’s kitchen and mine. It is how our family eats: mostly everything, mostly healthy, and always straightforward to prepare.
