Welcome to The Cook’s Pyjamas!
Do you often find yourself arriving home right on dinnertime, and find yourself scrabbling through the fridge and cupboards looking for something (anything!) to eat whilst the family gathers around demanding to be fed?
If so, you are in the right place.
My aim is to take the stress out of meal time by developing easy real food recipes that are suitable for a busy lifestyle. Each recipe I publish is easy to prepare, and has been road tested by my very fussy teenager. I try to provide ingredient substitutions for every recipe to allow for allergies or family preferences, as well as ideas for getting ahead on each meal, and tips for freezing so you can always have a spare dinner on hand.
So who am I?
My name is Tania and I live in Perth, Western Australia. I share my home with my husband, Mr Grumpy, my 16 year old daughter (The Princess) and a rabbit called Fudge that chews through everything left in his path.
Thanks to The Princess, I have developed a more-than-working understanding of the ‘Mum’s Taxi’ stickers regularly seen on those vehicles circling the school at pick-up time.
I have only one child, and there are times when life is so busy that putting dinner together at the end of the day seems almost impossible. I have no idea how families with multiple children manage to cope. You have my intense admiration.
Over the years I have developed a number of strategies that see us eating meals without stress … most evenings. Meal planning, using up leftovers, and freezing bits & pieces that can easily be turned into other meals are all part of my grand plan for minimal dinner stress.
I believe that it is possible to eat well with little fuss. And through The Cook’s Pyjamas I want to show you just how achievable it really is. We all deserve some quiet time at the end of the day, and having a good handle on meal times is one way to achieve this.
Don’t you deserve to breathe a small sigh of relief as dinner approaches?
If you are craving a little slice of calm in your day, why not take my 9 Day Dinner Time Challenge? Each day I send you a simple email with a tip or trick to help you along the path to dinner time serenity. Who wouldn’t want that? It’s as easy as putting your details in the box below, and I take care of the rest.
Now lets get right to the good stuff!
