If I’m not hiding in a kitchen, I’m hiding behind a fringe

Hi, I’m Janet Chadwick, Wife, Mom and Chef and socially awkward individual.

Delicious Life is a food blog designed to help you save time and money, and STILL make great food quickly and easily, even mid-week!   My goal is to help you feel like your own supper hero!

Between working at an NPO and serving on the Kid’s Church team, feeding my husband and children and anyone else who happens to cross my path, I like cooking as a wind-down.  But even for me, it’s not relaxing to cook at 5pm on a weeknight after a long day.

The good news is that as a qualified chef, I have a few tricks up my sleeve, which I’m absolutely going to share with you!

What’s different about this blog?  For one, I’m all about following principles rather than recipes (Don’t worry, I’ll share some amazing recipes too).  Wouldn’t it be awesome to know the basics and actually get to play with creating a meal, rather than labouring to make something that belongs on a Pinterest Fail meme?  Secondly, as I’m based in Cape Town, the ingredients I use are almost entirely available in South Africa, so you don’t have to be tempted by a delicious looking meal only to find it will take you 2 months to make, because you’re waiting for Amazon deliveries. 

So, what about you?  I’d love to know a bit more about you and what your kitchen challenges are, either by commenting here, emailing me, or engaging on Facebook, or Instagram, and we can work together towards effortless mealtimes!
