    1. I’m glad you found this useful. I do have a family of 7 so the recipes i share are often for around 5-6 people. Sadly I can’t cater for every single need but one suggestion to get the most from these recipes would be to batch cook or make freezer meals if there is too much or half the recipe and ingredients. 🙂
