Recipes From Caitríona Redmond
Food Writer & Busy Mum
Caitríona is a food writer and busy working mum who likes to feed her family from scratch with healthy and easy to prepare meals. Cooking on a budget is key to her menu plans and she does one big weekly shop in Lidl which generally comes in under €100 per week for a family of 5, plus a dog. Eating healthily and cooking can be difficult when you’re busy so Caitríona likes to make it as easy and convenient as possible. She uses tricks like tinned beans instead of dried versions, making the most of her slow cooker all year round, and cooking double-sized dinners so she has enough to freeze for a family meal another day. Caitríona specialises in recipes that are nutritious, budget-friendly, and easy to cook, even for the most basic of home cooks. She tests all her recipes in a real-life family environment using regular pots and pans in a small kitchen and making her family official taste-testers. The end result is that if you try her recipes at home you can be sure they’ll be a hit at the table and won’t break your heart to cook.
