About The Busy Kitchen Mum


Hello! Welcome to my busy kitchen. I'm Taneesha. Full time Fund Administrator, Single mum to Little Mister 5, self-confessed cookbook and cooking show addict, currently involved in a life long love affair with Summer not to mention part time avid cook and baker. 

Whether it’s a quick throw together meal when I get home from work, or a nice comforting slow cooked meal that takes preparation, I love to cook a variety of meals.
I love to entertain and often have friends and family over for lunches and dinners. To me, cooking a beautiful meal is a way to show my loved ones how much they mean to me. It shows that I am willing to put time and effort into creating something that I hope they will enjoy eating as much as I enjoy making it for them.

Food brings people together. So as I cook these recipes to bring together the people I love, I'm hoping that it does the same for you.
Food is so much more than just eating something for nourishment. Some of my fondest memories revolve around food: coming home after school on a cold rainy day to a big pot of vegetable soup on the stove; the beautiful salads my Mum would create during summer that we would then eat outside; and the big traditional Christmas feasts that were busily prepared by my Mum and Aunts.
