About Me


My name is . I'm a food writer and recipe developer who specialises in easy family vegetarian and vegan meals.

I live in Scotland with my little boy Cooper (the one gurning in the photo, boy does he love pulling faces) and my vegan husband Graham who likes to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible, unless I'm passing him some food.

So you're wondering why I called my blog Tinned Tomatoes?

No, I don't include tinned tomatoes in every dish I make and I definitely don't bake with them.


When I started this blog in 2007 most of my family favourites started with a tin of tomatoes. Recipes like soup, pasta sauce and and chilli, but it was time for a change.

Tinned Tomatoes was my starting point and a reminder to myself to be more creative.

I became vegetarian 24 years ago, but for the last two years I've leaned more heavily towards vegan dishes, as my husband decided to move to a vegan diet. My little boy and I still occasionally eat dairy, so there's a mixture of both on my blog, but most of my veggie dishes can be easily adapted for a vegan diet and all my purely vegan recipes are marked with a (v) in my recipe index (on the sidebar).
