    I actually really enjoy cooking now - wouldn't exactly say i disliked it before SW though.

    Now I have so many recipes that I cook completely from scratch, i really do like to get crackin in the kitchen :)

    Cooking is one of lives great pleasures !!!

    There is nothing like home cooked food.....

    Try doing yourself a favour and start with some of the really simple SW recipes like the pasta quiche. So much nicer than frozen stuff and much cheaper too.

    There are hundreds of recipes in the recipe section.

    You could always batch cook and get it out the way and freeze them in meal portions. That way if you don't feel like cooking one night you can take something out of the freezer and know that it's a healthy meal on plan that you have cooked. I do this when hubby goes away and have things like bolognaise sauces and cottage pies all ready to defrost and then all I need is to either prepare a salad, or boil some frozen veg to go with it.

    I know how hard it is fitting in meal times with children!! My eldest is 5.5 and when she has her tea I'm still full up from lunch (gastric band), I sit with her at the table with a glass of water instead so that she still has the "table manner experience".
    I feed dd1 with sw stuff that I cook for myself and she loves my spaghetti bolognaise!

    Gosh you have your hands full.

    No wonder you find it hard to find the time to look after yourself properly.

    Do you manage to have *you* time ???

    It is really important to have a little time for yourself. That way you feel better able to cope with everything else.

    If I lived close to you I would come and do some batch cooking for you, just to give you a break.

    I used to dabble, used to get online recipes, then one Christmas the Delia Cookbook arrived!

    Great for beginners and experts alike.

    Don't laugh, but it will even teach how to boil eggs correctly (so many people can't do this simple task consistently).

    A lot of the recipes are gold old fashioned wholesome (read fattening) recipes but most can be adapted.

    Cooking is great - especially batch-cooking when the little 'uns are in bed/sleeping. Batch-freeze curries, soups, lasagne, shepherd's pie, etc, - always a stock of decent food on tap - no need for "crap" then;)

    I do appreciate time is of the essence with demanding toddlers though:p


    Maybe get them involved making their own scones or rock cakes etc. they would love that I'm sure.
