I’m a busy mum, looking after a toddler (Louis) and baby Theo, currently on maternity leave, but usually working as a food writer and freelance writer on raising a “green” family.

We signed up for our local organic box scheme when we first weaned Louis and I quickly realised that I didn’t know what to do with some of the random, unidentified vegetables that arrived each week!

If they were covered in my array of recipe books, chances were I wouldn’t have the other ingredients in stock.

So we had to get creative.

And we soon discovered how many other people were in the same position.

That’s why I launched VegBox-Recipes.co.uk.

It’s packed full of tried and tested recipes, specifically designed for UK-grown, seasonal ingredients.

Yes, you’ll also find recipes with non-UK ingredients, because it’s nice to treat yourself. But our main aim is to help you make the most of your veg box / farmers’ market / allotment and inspire you to try out some fresh ideas.

If you’d like to have your say, please email us a recipe!

If you’d like to get in touch, send me an email via the contact us page. I’d love to hear from you.

I’ve come across a fantastic veg box scheme in South Devon http://www.nearlynakedveg.co.uk. Great value for money – the box was absolutely brimming. I’m a definite convert and the Sunday roast boxes offer fantastic value for money. I’ll just have to try and learn to cook a bit better so all these fab recipes are perfect!

Dear Patience –

thanks so much for flagging this company. We’ve checked out their website and they do look brilliant. We’ll contact them and ask them if they’d like a listing in our database and over on our sister site, http://www.ooffoo.com.

Thanks again.

With the latest study from PEW Research stating that 95% of teens have access
to the Internet, 80% of kids have cell phones and 48% have data plans, providing a safe cyber-space should be a priority for all parents.
In addition, many of the words used started to take on slightly different meanings, depending on
the context in which they are used. The Unit is powered by the Main chip adopting the CORTEX A8

The backend part of your company supports
these profit centers. In addition, many of the words used started
to take on slightly different meanings, depending on the context in which they are used.
It’s probably some mix of the two, so I have to give him props for not going too far in either direction.

Each new age brought the criminal element forward with it.
Today, lots of websites and blogs bring in
unheard of income for their owners merely by promoting another’s company on their
web pages. A internet marketing business, in a nutshell, a business that’s designed to run
on the internet via a website.
