This is me!

Hello, this is me, Victoria of Boiled Eggs & Soldiers

British born, Australian grown, very recently moved from living in Sydney to Townsville! Now in my early 40’s, married and mother to two beautiful, funny, fiesty little girls. A couple of years ago I decided to leave behind the corporate world and give being a stay at home Mum a go (but that is another story for a different day).  I now spend A LOT of time in the kitchen when I’m not sorting laundry, drinking coffee or tea, mainly tea, pretending to exercise, dropping off, picking up or hanging out at the beach.

Boiled Eggs and Soldiers is an idea I’ve had bubbling away for a few years now. Deciding what’s for dinner each night can be tedious (yes?) so I thought that I could help take some of the pain out of the mundane by creating Boiled Eggs & Soldiers as a service to you!

Boiled Eggs & Soldiers

Basically, it’s a food blog, giving simple, mostly healthy, mostly nutritious and most importantly quick and easy home cooked, menu plan and recipe ideas that the whole family can enjoy.  Most of the dinner recipes can be made in around 30 minutes. There are also some special occasion ideas, seasonal cooking, quite a lot of gluten free recipes, timesaving tips, lunch box suggestions and, because I have joined the cult, Thermomix recipes as well.  Also, cakes,  lots of cakes. But, as life is not all about cooking, there’s a bit of chat too!

I do spend a lot of time in the kitchen, I enjoy it, for me cooking is an expression of love.  I am by no means a chef, enthusiastic home cook at best!  I have as many fails as I do wins and am learning every day. Everything that appears on Boiled Eggs and Soldiers has either been created or adapted by me or I have scoured through blogs, websites, recipe books (another pastime) and asked friends to bring to you tried and tested favourites.  Now you can have the answer to that question….“What’s for dinner tonight?”.  Each Thursday night to Sunday I co-host “Your Weekly Feed” a link up for easy & tasty foodie ideas and a place to visit for planning your weeks meals.

Oh, and the name “Boiled Eggs & Soliders”? Well, it’s a family favourite (although at the moment one child will only eat yolk and the other only the white!) and by Sunday night that’s all we can be bothered making!

I welcome and look forward to your feedback, comments and ideas. If you would like to send me any of your recipes I’d gratefully accept them too.
