Introducing Askmumnow

August 13, 2012 Filed under Intro

 

I’m delighted that Askmumnow.com is now available on mobile devices to make it much easier for you to access the content.
We also plan to update some of the information so that it is more relevant in today’s world. I’m thinking more of recipes because in the 1970s and 80s the range of ingredients available was far narrower than we have today. Our tastes have changed as well with this greater variety of flavours  and ingredients.  For example, who would have complained about the price of out-of-season avocados back then. We hardly knew what an avocado looked like let alone tasted one.
We plan to stick with the recipes that were used in the 70s and 80s and adapt them to make use of the wider range of flavours and ingredients that we have become used to. Also look for gluten-free variations and low sugar options for some of the more traditional recipes. There will also be new recipes that are not necessarily what “Mum used to make” but that are the basis for good nutritious family meals using seasonal fresh ingredients.

How often do you wish you could ask ‘Mum, how do I…?’ about things you remember from your childhood? You’ll find information, hints and tips in  recipes, ideas for children’s lunchboxes, cleaning tips, how to remove stains, budget advice and much much more.

Make askmumnow.com part of your everyday life.

Quick tidy-up

November 9, 2011 Filed under Tip of the Day

When cleaning the house, take a clean bucket or large plastic bag and pick up things that are lying around. When cleaning is finished, empty the bag or bucket and put all the ‘found’ items back where they belong.

Fireproof storage for personal documents

March 11, 2011 Filed under Tip of the Day

Store valuable papers in a sealed plastic bag in the freezer.  This is the one place in the house that is fireproof. Plus you will always know where to find  the papers and you will save money by not buying a fireproof safe.
