My name is Vanesther and I’m a working mum based in Bristol, England.

I first started the Bangers & Mash blog back in 2011 when my children were six and three to record our food adventures. I wanted to create a blog for anyone who, like me, was trying to cook good family food and eat well on a budget.

Through writing the blog, I learned so much about family cooking and enjoyed connecting with food bloggers from around the world. Bangers & Mash encouraged us to be much more experimental in the kitchen and was a great way to involve the children in developing new recipes and trying out new foods.

I took a break from the blog for several years and now that my kids are 17 and 14, we’ve decided it’s time to bring Bangers & Mash back to life!

Do let us know what you think of our recipes and if you’ve got any dishes or suggestions we’d love to hear from you. Email us at bangermashchat@gmail.com.

    1. Thanks Ruth. It’s insane just how much food we waste as a nation, especially when money is so tight for all of us. Meal planning has definitely helped me drastically reduce how much we throw out each week and has saved us lots financially too. Thanks again for sharing!

  3. Hi, I absolutely love your blog and have nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. If you are interested, visit my blog to see the process. (It’s one of those “acknowledge and pass it on” awards.
