About me

Cooking has always been a big passion for me, even more so since I had my little boy in 2016... and I hope that this translates through the concept of YumiTums Cooking. 

It all began for me as a child when I used to stay over at my nan's house for the weekend and we'd bake together. Back then it was sultana and cherry muffins (yum!), or we'd create brand new ice cream flavours like Crunchie or Mars. Nowadays of course you can buy these ice creams off  in a supermarket, but there's nothing like making homemade concoctions! ​ 

 As my little boys appetite started to grow, I initially found it really hard to think of new recipes and interesting meals for him after the "puree" stage. I searched the internet and found one book, but I wanted more. So I started on a mini project to keep a note of all my recipes and meals I was making, I took pictures and started writing down the ingredients and methods so I could always refer back. Through various "baby groups" and chat forums I realised that other parents were also asking similar questions, "what can I offer my baby for lunch other than bread?", "any ideas on sandwich fillings?". 

So I turned my recipes and ideas into a website! www.yumitums.com which has an array of yumi ideas for busy parents, that are simple, healthy and not over complicated to make. 

My aim is simple...

 Everyone leads very busy lives and so my recipes and inspirational ideas are designed to help parents get the best nutrition into your little ones Tum, without having to prep too much and cook for long periods of time. At the end of the day, there's nothing worse than a grumbly tummy and a little sad face waiting for their food! ​  

My ultimate aim is to get YumiTum recipes in the homes of as many families as possible. So help me to create a YumiTums army, and pave the way to healthy eating through easy and simple recipes for our little ones tummies!    

How can you help?

If you love my recipes and ideas (check out my website www.yumitums.com), help me to continue my passion by pledging a small donation. The funds will cover the costs of the cookbook design, editing, ingredients, additional photography, production of a shiney new cookbook, packaging and most importantly it would allow me to hopefully work with some experienced publishers to bring my YumiTums Cookbook to life!

 

The long term plan?

To have a cookbook of course! Searching online to view recipes is a bit of a fumble and besides, I love nothing more than a proper book to refer to... call me old fashioned but it means so much more and it will also allow the availability of simple, healthy recipes to be reached to anyone and not just people with an internet connection! 

Risks and challenges

I don't foresee any risks with the project, if the target isn't achieved no money is taken from any backers :)

My challenge will be to find a suitable publisher and print house to bring my cookbook to life.
