About me

I juggle a working-from-home career as a freelance writer with bringing up my kids, aged 11, 9 and 6. My blog started as a parenting blog but it has become more and more dedicated to food. I post daily recipes, which I develop, write and photograph myself, in my blog’s Recipe Shed category.

I’m keen to develop this foodie side even more and so would welcome the opportunity to review new food products, kitchen gadgets and – especially – new and unusual cooking ingredients.

I have written for a variety of publications, and I would welcome 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… http://www.parentdish.co.uk/about-us/keith-kendrick/

  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

  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!

    Hi Joanne, I’ve tried to email you but keep getting a Failure Notice. Is there a number or email address I can reach you at?
    Regards,
    Keith

  11. Hiya , just stopped by to look for a recipe for pasta bake and couldn’t find one :-(. I wish you had a search box. Anyways keep up the good work. I love your blog. cheers

  12. 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.

  13. 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”.
