About me


I juggle a working-from-home career as a freelance writer with bringing up my kids, aged 13, 10 and 7. My passion is cooking and I post daily recipes, which I develop, write and photograph myself.

I love to review new food products, kitchen gadgets and – especially – new and unusual cooking ingredients.

I have written for a variety of publications, and I’m available for writing or editing commissions, particularly food, lifestyle and human interest-related.

I am also Contributing Editor and Columnist for the parenting website, Parentdish.co.uk

Below are links to a selection of my articles….

  1. Excellent blog. Love reading about parenthood from a dad’s point of view!

  2. I’m in a similar situation; I too was made redundant & at the moment am the main carer for our 15-month-old twins.

    I look forward to reading of your adventures!

  3. Hi

    We are about to do the same thing.. so have directed my hubby to your site! love reading everything and hope HE can get some comfort from your blog! lol.


  4. Wow! I just found you through Anne at Domesblissity. What an interesting story. I can’t wait to find our more of it.

  5. my partner is the stay at home dad whilst i go to college and look for work, i was the stay at home parent for a long time but with the cost of childcare and my partner being made redundant a lot we set about swapping roles. i didnt know any other house dads but since i started blogging ive found a fair few!

  6. Its good to hear another dad declare their reluctance for the almighty challenge (and of course very rewarding) of stay at home dadding. I wrote my own post on the same subject – http://daddownunder.wordpress.com/2012/02/23/88/

  7. I recently discovered and I’m hooked. I wander how the headhunting thing went…will there be any changes coming up?

  8. Hiya Keith,

    This blog is amazing, it’s great to find so many ideas for meals now I’m fending for myself and can no longer rely on my Mum’s Yorkshire puddings!

    I’ll look into a Search bar. Good idea. Thanks for the suggestion.

  11. Hi there – I have been a stay at home Dad to my two kids seven years down here in Germany.

    How easy it is depends on whether you get at least “mornings “off if they are in KG/school. The first few years are rough as hell and I won’t pretend they aren’t. But after it becomes a doddle.

    If I were you I’d get yourself a garden. I am well into the self sufficiency thing.

  12. Chanced upon this blog and I like it. Being a grampa which is a bit higher in ranking than you, JallieDaddy, Daddownunder & Jeremy Stocks, semi-retired but still grinding daily, I find blogging a great cooling off remedy for the hassles, head & heart aches of small food business. While I deal more on proper ingredients to utilize, I do recipes for some chefs/cooks & restos here in Philippines and post simple-innovated Filipino ones sometimes. Am starting to digest some of yours and will try to “marry” them into Filipino taste. Hope you won’t mind this. Keep it up & more power guys. My motto: ” a good dad is loved, always remembered & cared of by a good child”.

  13. I discovered your blog a couple of months ago, and loved it from the start. How you display your dishes in the photos, how you write and of course what you are cooking. I hope you will add some new content soon as I am impatient to continue to follow your journey as a housedad.

      Hi Ann, how very kind of you. Your compliment is very much appreciated. I’ve just looked at your blog and I think the concept of cooking for two is a great one. YOu have some great recipes there. I have a stack of recipes to post on my blog but finding the time has been an issue just lately, but be sure to look out for more. Many thanks for the feedback and for getting in touch.

    Dear Keith,
    I got your details from foodies100.co.uk . I like your blog! Very honest and the recipes look great!
    You may not be interested in the below at all, but I thought I’d ask…

    Cono Sur, a Chilean winery which we represent in the UK, is offering a food / wine blogger the chance to win a trip for two to Chile.
    What you have to do is match two of their wines with two dishes, and enter the recipes via this website.


    The best recipes from each of the competing countries will be invited to a grand final in Paris in November, from where the winning dishes will be chosen.
    No obligation at all, just thought it could be interesting. Final date for submissions is 17th August.

    Best regards

    It’s good to hear things from the dad’s point of view. You seem to be working very hard…
