These are tried, tested and much loved recipes. Our families and friends are always unselfish and devote themselves to taste-testing these delicious creations and demand them repeatedly time and time again.

Our aim is to share with you our favourite meals and the little tricks and tips we have learnt along the way.
Time is precious.
Food is expensive.

Both are resources too valuable to waste.

We want to share recipes that deliver delicious, nourishing meals - making the most of your time and ingredients.

Life is way too short for bland, disappointing food.
So ... Feed your inner cook - and Enjoy!

Quick Marmalade


It's that time of year again when Mamma Marmalade gets nervous is she hasn't a store cupboard bursting with jars of sunshine and citrus.  There is something so satisfying about cooking with seasonal produce at it's best.


1 orange
1 grapefruit
2 lemons
Should weigh approximately 675 g or more
1 kg sugar


Cut fruit into thin slices, place in a ceramic or glass bowl, cover with 2.8 litres of water, cover with a tea towel and leave overnight.

Next day, place fruit and water into a large saucepan and boil for 20 minutes or until the fruit is soft.

Add sugar and boil for approximately 1 hour, until jam is ready. Test by placing a small amount of jam on a chilled saucer that has been in the freezer, run your finger through and if the jam "wrinkles" it is ready.

Pour jam into sterilised jars and seal.

You - are now a Mamma Marmalade!
