Motherhood: From My Kitchen


Motherhood: From My Kitchen

Recipes to inspire, soothe and warm


The first part of the Motherhood project is a small keepsake recipe book. 

A mother is immersed in a busy life, but one thing will be constant

– the need to eat, to feed your child, to nourish your family. Home cooking and baking is a simple and creative outlet, allowing you to control what food is consumed and beat the rising costs and availability of processed foods.

Motherhood: From my Kitchen is a collection of recipes from mothers… simple, packed with goodness, easy to prepare. Everything from pasta to homemade yoghurt, muesli bars to slices, celebration cakes to soups, stews and salads. You’ll find a helpful checklist of party food, a place to record all your family meals for easy meal planning, creative play ideas including slime, bubbles, dough and rice. Dinners that are baby friendly, nice for toddlers, easy to prepare in advance. Lunchbox ideas to fill busy tummies that are healthy! And finally, recipes to make your own cleaners plus some natural first aid remedies.

Motherhood: From my Kitchen is a keepsake recipe book for you to make yours. Embrace home cooking, have fun and enjoy your food. May motherhood be kind to you, and may you treasure the wonder of homecooked food and the warmth that it offers.
