Feed Your Family: More From Less. Shop smart. Cook clever.

Hi, I’m Lorna and I’m a 39yr old mother of 3 and step mother of 1. My kids are 21, 20 and 9 and my step daughter is 14. My eldest 2 are students, one still at home and one home in the holidays and weekends. I was a young mum with very limited cooking experience and struggled when it came to providing a healthy balanced diet on a budget! Over the years I’ve had quite a few disasters but through listening to advice wherever I could get it and shopping around a lot I am now a fairly accomplished cook! There is very little waste in my house as I bulk out meals, use up leftovers, shop around and bake all our treats! I got involved with FYF as I see so many young families struggling in the current economy and I want to help them to feed their families healthy home cooked food on a limited budget xx Lorna xx

Hi I’m Eve at 53 I’m the Scottish mammy of the group. Glasgow born and proud. Mother of 3 (youngest 26 :o) is Autistic.Trained as a Nurse and have had many jobs over the years mainly in catering /hospitality. Trained Barista also. I’m what I would call a “plain cook” stews, mince, soups …hearty dishes that fill your belly, but I love a curry too and like most Scots, I have a sweet tooth. I got involved in FYF through helping friends budget and rethink their ideas of what they could use instead of throwing it away. I really hope to show folk that ready meals can be done cheaper and tastier at home. I admire all the admins so much as they face every day with a challenge and rise to it with gumption. I`m a canny saver and love a bargain and to share it with my friends. Slainte
