A Humble Housewife believes in humble food.
I hate pretentious food.
Instead a humble dinner includes proper portions, wholesome, feel-good food, all served with a side of love.
I love cooking. I love hearing “mmmm”, “yum”, “is there anymore?”
There’s something just so lovely about sitting around the table at the end of the day, sharing stories over a delicious home cooked meal. I think it’s a really important part of the daily routine and something that is often overlooked in modern families.
The ethos behind all my recipes is simple and tasty. There’s no silliness unless I really think it’s worth it (like praline – has to be done), no ridiculous ingredients, if something is on the pricey side I’ll make it clear it’s for a treat, and the steps given will be tried and tested so you shouldn’t go wrong.
As I also have a full-time job, I understand the balance required for quick fixes after work, handy dinners you can cook in bulk and those special meals that you’re happy to spend a whole afternoon on. So there’s a bit of everything on here. I also understand the importance of a balanced menu, so there will be a few suggestions for all occasions.
I hope that as I learn my housewife skills, we’ll be able to develop some fabulous weekly food plans that you can adapt to your own tastes and budgets.
But all in all I hope you enjoy trying out some of my recipes. I have!
