Many of the recipes included in the weekly Meal Plans have been chosen for their ease & tastiness.
While looking for recipes, it struck me how many ingredients there are in each meal. Surely you can’t have all these ingredients in the cupboard all the time, just in case! I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to buy a jar of something to use it once, then watch it go off.
Mums Meal Planner uses recipes where you’ll find the ingredients in your cupboard. If there is a new ingredient you need, we’ll be sure to use it again in other recipes over the next few weeks to be sure it’s not wasted.
One of the benefits of our recipes is they will include less than 10 ingredients! We like to keep things simple!

Each week you find a Recipe of the week. The recipe will be easy, tasty & you won’t need a degree to make it!
This week the recipe is a favourite in our house… Chilli! It’s one of the nation’s favourites too with lots of recipes out there. We’ve chosen this one as it has 5 ingredients! It’s so quick, simple & with only 5 ingredients the likelihood they’re sat waiting in the cupboard for you to use.
