Hi, I'm Jo and I'm the cook, author and photographer behind The Family Food Kitchen!
I’ve worked as a professional Recipe Developer, Food Stylist and Content Creator for years but I’m also a busy mum of 3. So I fully understand the challenge of churning out endless dinners and snacks the kids will actually eat!
The focus of this site is Easy Recipes for Busy Families Who Like to Eat Well.
There are plenty of 30 Minute Meals, Sheet Pan Dinners, One Pot Wonders and easy but delicious Slow Cooked Meals.
Here you will find my best simple recipes, tried, tested and developed over the years with plenty of short cuts, to get good food on the table ASAP.
There are also some of my best easy baking recipes for cakes, desserts and snacks.
You won’t find long ingredient lists or complicated methods. I’m all about stress free, flavorful food, which looks good and is easy to put together.
You’ll also find helpful ideas to feed a crowd with easy appetizers and no stress desserts.
There are also lots of vegetarian, refined sugar-free, gluten free options too, since we’re all trying to feed our kids more healthily nowadays.

More About Jo
Since graduating from Culinary School in NYC in 2010 I have worked as a Recipe Developer and Food Stylist in test kitchens of many America’s best known publications, like Bon Appetit Magazine, Good Housekeeping, Epicurious, Saveur and Food52.
I have also worked with well known cookbook authors such as Gordon Ramsey, Molly Yeh and Jeanine Donofrino, from the hugely popular Love and Lemons website. I have also worked with a variety of household brands like William Sonoma, Weightwatchers, Staub Cookware, Danone, Kraft and more.
I started off life as a BBC journalist and then worked in PR in London. But a love of cooking and a desire to find a fulfilling career which would allow me to spend more time with my kids took me back to school to study cooking. I was lucky enough to attend Leith’s in London then, after moving to the USA, at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City.
