food and drink



Originally from Northumberland, Rebecca now lives in Cumbria with her family.

When she began weaning her daughter Nina onto solid food at 6 months she wanted to cook once for herself and her daughter to save time, but struggled to find recipes that were suitable for herself and her daughter. Soon, she started sharing her recipe ideas and weaning journey (the highs and lows) on her Instagram channel, originally called What Mummy Makes. 

Here, Rebecca chats about her new book 'Fast Family Food' that offers a new range of simple, healthy and delicious everyday meals that you can cook with just 10 minutes of prep time.
