My name is Jacqueline Meldrum. 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 and my vegan husband Graham who likes to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible, unless I'm passing him some food.
WHY TINNED TOMATOES?
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 recipes started with a tin of tomatoes. I realised I need to challenge myself more and try new recipes and so the blog was born.
I became vegetarian 25 years ago, but for the last few 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).
I write a monthly column called Veg on Wheels (veg box inspiration and recipes) for Vegan Life Magazine (print), a weekly article for BabyCentre UK (online), a monthly article for Readers Digest (online) and I occasionally create recipes for Great British Chefs (online).
I create recipes for some of the top food brands in the UK including Baxters, Quorn, Waitrose, Iceland and Tesco.
