Simply good food to share from a mum who likes to feed her kids well. A guide and a little bit of inspiration for those who'd like to cook a bit more but haven't got the time or the energy to meal plan. I'll post daily/weekly updates of recipes that work for me. Good food doesn't have to involve hours of hard work and preparation.

Rachel and I had a productive couple of hours yesterday afternoon with a packet of marzipan and some food colouring. These little fruits are something of a tradition for me ever since I learnt how to make them over 25 years ago on a cookery course. By using cloves and methods for texturing the fruit they do look surprisingly realistic. Roll the strawberries in caster sugar and the oranges and lemons on a small grater to get the pitted look. My intention was to give them for presents, but Rachel has decided we should keep them for ourselves.
