Hi! I’m Marie, and I own, design, curate and create Try This Recipe.
Food has been a huge passion of mine since I was very small. I grew up playing in a garden full of veg and helping my home-economist mum in the kitchen, watching her whip up cakes, pasta dishes, party food and Sunday roasts to perfection.
I am not a chef or a nutritionist, but I am a firm believer in that everyone can cook themselves delicious food. Try This Recipe isn’t about “clean eating” – it’s about creating the time in your day to yourself and friends and family, trying new ways to make some of your week-night favourites – it could be putting a healthier spin on a mid-week stew or having a go at a new way to use beef mince that isn’t something you always have.
Each Try This Recipe dish aims to follow these 3 rules:
1. Release the guilt
Leave your guilt at the door. Food is food – it’s not “good”, or “bad”, it’s fuel. Ate a burger and fries for lunch? That’s fine, have an extra portion of your favourite fruit and veg tomorrow and work out when you can go to that diner again next month. Don’t punish yourself for eating food.
2. “Food time” should be “you time”
We lead busy lives and it’s well known we don’t make enough time for ourselves as it is, let alone making ourselves something delicious for dinner. Set aside time for you each day to make your favourite meal for dinner with healthy swaps or a different spin on one of your favourites. Whether it’s 30 minutes or 2 hours – find the time to cook every day!
3. Share the love
Each recipe on Try This Recipe is created with sharing in mind, as well as being able to enjoy it on your own. Get some friends over, switch the phones off, pile them in the corner and make time for each other over a delicious meal you put together without distractions. There is nothing more satisfying than making amazing food for the people you love.
I hope that Try This Recipe inspires you to get back in touch with food. I’d love to know if you make any recipes, or if you have one to add!
