A tough topic: How to get your kids to love vegies

My next video is about a topic I’m certainly not qualified to give advice on … but it’s something so many of you have asked me to touch on … as it’s obviously a massive struggle for many parents on a daily basis. And, that’s how to get vegies into your kids. So, here’s what I think … and the reasons why this isn’t an easy topic for me. Please leave your comments and your own tips in the comments. Rally around each other, share your experiences and maybe, just maybe, the kids will eat their broccoli. 😘

Video blog: My secret tip to infuse flavour fast

New video: Sick of looking through your social media news feeds and feeling like everyone has life figured out except for you?

I’m sick of celebrity chefs telling me these 30-ingredient recipes are “quick” and “easy. They’re not – and I cook for a living! The processes may be simple, but the cost, the shopping the mucking around – it’s just … stressful!

So, this video is me – raw, and real, after a hard day at work. I’m revealing a cooking cheat that most people who have made cooking their living, may be a little shy to admit. But you know what – I don’t care! It helps me get food on the table fast -it can be applied to all sorts of meat and vegies – and the best part is you can use your instincts. You don’t need to constantly refer to a convoluted recipe – and you don’t need to go to the stupid supermarket for what feels like the billionth time this week. If you have these in your fridge – you can make just about anything work. Just chuck everything in the oven … wait … eat!

Wanna know the secret? Here you go. Here’s me … being really real … really honest and I believe that sharing tips like these will take some of the stress out and love back in to cooking. This is just one tip – I have so many more to come that will have you putting your recipe books down and having the confidence to create food using what you have. Please let me know what you think – and what you want to see more of. But, thank you for your support thus far … it has been truly humbling.

Need more ideas on how to apply this tip to your cooking? Ask in the comments section below. I’m more than happy to help!

Herbs with mum – video blog

I have been absolutely overwhelmed by all the support for my first video blog! It was so scary for me … but oh my goodness you people are just so damn wonderful! The encouragement you have given me has been astounding!!
I have a long list of topics thanks to all your feedback!
So, I decided for my second instalment, I would introduce you to my first food inspiration … my mum.

She was showing me her garden the other day and the passion was just infectious… so we popped the camera on and … here it is! Whether it’s cooking, eating or growing food … it has this amazing ability to spread love. 

There are a few tips on how to grow and cook with herbs … they really are a super quick way to inject flavour fast! Who taught you to cook?
P.s. thanks mum … love you xoxo Lisa
