    Mum used to get us mcdonalds almost every night. When she would cook it would be burned chops and lumpy mashed potatoes. Needless to say I had huge food (and health) issues as a teen!!

    I'm now a super healthy eater and looking forward to setting up my child with a great range of homemade foods to grow up healthy and strong with.

    I remember a lot of food from my grandmothers... it wasn't even that special, but we only ever had it there.

    Firstly, my parents wouldn't feed us white bread, so I was thrilled when I got to have it. My Nanny would serve me country split bread... it was so good. She also used to give us vanilla ice-cream... but had no topping, so she'd use homemade strawberry jam instead. We also sucked on fresh honeycomb (like, taken straight from the bees) sometimes. Mmmmm...

Mmmmm luckily grandma passed on her cooking to my mum so we still get to eat it whenever we want. Berrie, always asked for that for my birthday dinners too!! Hehe
    I'm so hungry now!!!!
    There's something about Dutch food, hey? Particularly when it's cooked by your Oma
    I forgot ... my nana's pumpkin scones!

    The earliest food memories for me was my step mother forcing me to eat burnt pumpkin. I woke up vomiting that night.

    Also she used to always tell me I ate so much (yet I'd lose weight each time I'd stay with them) and surprise surprise, I ended up with an eating disorder as a teen

    My mum's roast lamb and gravy. I have been known to eat/drink any gravy left over after the meal.
    Velvet chicken in summer- it's a asian flavoured boiled chicken. It is only brought to the boil and simmered for 15 minutes with the lid on before switching off. It then cooks in the residual heat for a couple of hours.
    A fried fish dish mum used to make a lot of out of "China the beautiful cookbook".
    Mum's lemon curd.
    Mmmm, so many food memories.
