I'm Beth, a Cornish-based (UK) Blogger and Mum of 3, who is passionate about tasty, home-cooked food, and maybe a few treats every now and again (muffins are a speciality). I'm also a little bit obsessed with my air fryer!
I've been blogging since 2008 over at my Cornish Food Blog Jam & Clotted Cream, and since 2020, here at Effortless Foodie. More recently I've started a Cornish travel blog at Cornish Compass, which aims to provide both visitors (and locals) with up-to-date information on all things Cornwall, from the best restaurants and eateries to must-visit wineries in the region.
Food and recipe development is my absolute passion in life though and one that I can now call my full-time career. This blog, Effortless Foodie, was born out of a desire to showcase simple, family-friendly recipes, that work EVERY TIME, and most importantly, are effortless and fuss-free to make.
With that in mind, what you'll definitely not find on Effortless Foodie, is long and complicated recipes, recipes that take hours to make, and recipes that use weird expensive ingredients that, despite your best efforts, you can't find anywhere!
More about Beth & the blog
I started Effortless Foodie to share my fuss-free, family-friendly recipes and to make dinner time as stress-free as possible.
I currently shoot with a Canon 6D. The two lenses I use are a Canon f/1.4 50mm lens and a Canon f/2.8 100mm (for beautiful close-ups).
My top 6 dinner recipes for kids are;
Easy Macaroni Cheese
Simple Savoury Mince
Mild Chicken Curry
Slow Cooker Pulled Beef
Pork Mince Bolognese
Homemade Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets
Impossible question for me to answer! I use (and love) both equally. It's like asking me if I have a favourite child!
