Jessica’s sweet potato and coconut curry

hey, guys welcome to the community section of the blog, (Just look at it as a wee recipe swap corner.) You may all know I love a home cook, ( I am a home cook) they are the heart of every home! With little nuggets of wisdom hidden inside that no amount of chef training will teach you. They feed their nearest and dearest every day, so it’s basically cooking with love!

What I want to do here is “champion” the home cook and share their recipes because as far as I’m concerned its them recipes that should be out there, the ones that are cooked in our homes every week!! The food that are families  eating across the nation.

So First up I have the lovely Jessica O Farrell’s “sweet potato and coconut curry. Jessica shared the recipe first over on the Facebook group a couple of of weeks ago and I couldn’t wait to try it. Jessica has a very similar ethos as My self when it comes to food. She wants to be healthier and that’s reflected in the food she eats and cooks for her family. She loves the odd treat too (don’t we all, sure we have to live) but the majority of her diet is healthy home cooked food.  Meals that are suitable for all her family including her 20-month-old. That way she doesn’t have to be making different meals for everyone! ( I hear you sista)  x You can follow Jessica’s weekly meal plan over on her Instagram here  for more fab ideas x
