About Me

Once upon a time, cooking was simple and easy (sigh), Don’t get me wrong! I love all the new recipes out there but i’m just not made out of time like I used to be pre- mommy/wifey life. I rarely have the time to make fancy things. Instead, you’ll find me in the kitchen whipping up some of our old time favorites but perhaps with a little twist that will inspire you to cook it again! I’m all about #easycookin! If it isn’t easy I won’t bother. It’s great to cook amazing food for your family but it’s also great to have extra time for them and yourself too!

Hope you enjoy my food recipes, ideas, and small glimpse into my life as a mom with one foodie child and one extreme picky one. I work so hard to put some nutrition in him and it definitely isn’t easy.

Onceuponapot.com is a blog that will be updated with some delicious recipes for hosting and for your family without you having to be in the kitchen all day! You will also find some of my fussy eating solutions tried and tested on my son whom I hope every day will try something new. I’ll also be sharing with you some of my favorite kitchenware gadgets!

Drop me a message or an email to onceuponapot@gmail.com to get to know each other more and perhaps create some ass-kicking recipes together.

Much love,

    Hi Rowan,

    As you may have heard, Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens is opening his new restanrant concept at The Beach, JBR later this month. We are hosting a small blogger dinner with chef Tom on Wednesday 9 September and would love it if you could join us. You were recommended to us for your blog. Below are the details – do let me know if you have any questions.



    Invitation: The wait is almost over for Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens to launch his new family sharing concept restaurant towards the end of September. We would like to invite you for an exclusive taster session so you can try out some of the exciting dishes set to be on offer.

    You will be able to taste a range of delicious dishes picked to be menu favourites, such as the bourguignon pie, raz al chicken, meatballs, mac and roasted veg. As well as chelsea bun, crumble and chocolate tart for dessert.

    You can also watch chef Tom in action as he will rustle something up in the kitchen and be on hand to give a little more background on the dishes and restaurant concept, giving you a chance to dig a little deeper and ask any questions you may have.

    We really hope you can make what will be a great evening and do let me know if you have any questions.

    Date: Wednesday 9 September
    Time: 8pm – 10pm
    Location: Pots, Pans & Boards – The Beach, opposite JBR
