With both of the GoodStuff families weaning second babies, it seems only right that we have a blog dedicated to the subject. In fact the Goodtstuff came into being after weaning our first kids, who also happen to have been born around the same time (we’re not copying, honest). We started trading recipes and ideas [...]Read More
There I was sitting on the train on my way to work, casually glancing at the newspaper when I come across an article in the food section called “Frying Pan Pizza”. The article calls it a ‘new trend’. I’m suspicious of food trends, but I do love a pizza and my attention is momentarily grabbed. [...]Read More
Nothing bar nothing makes you feel old like your own kid’s birthdays. I mean yeah these days I make strange “ahherr” noises when I bend over to pick stuff up. On a fairly regular basis I wander into rooms and think “now why did I come in here?”. Many minutes and hours of television watching [...]Read More
This weekend was the annual town carnival in our little town of Axbridge. Perched on the edge of the Somerset Levels in the shadow of the mendips and just a short run and swim across the reservoir from the tourist magnet of Cheddar Gorge. Called the “Blackberry Carnival” its a celebration of the end of [...]Read More
So let me start by saying that “Tårta Till Kvällsmat” is almost definitely not what I think it means. According to Google Translate it means ‘biscuits for supper’ but in reality say this in a Stockholm supermarket and you’ll probably get a slapped cheek and some filthy looks. That or some sort of fish dish… [...]Read More
There is a definite unique wisdom you find in people who spend their working days sat, observing and waiting for something out the ordinary to happen so they can spring into action. People who watch CCTV, watch for foot faults in tennis or signalmen on railways – spending all day watching and waiting seems to [...]Read More
Welcome to the Good Stuff our happy home for blogging and such like – mainly about food, baking and eating…but occasionally we just meander off into reviewing products, places or just generally chatting about the stuff we like.
In case you are wondering who we are – we are Matt & Corpy. 2 thirty-something men who became good mates over beer and student sandwiches back in the heady days of mid-1990′s South East London. Fast forward nearly 20 years and 140 miles to the West – both of us found ourselves becoming Dads for the first time at around the same time. Swapping beer and carelessness for nappies and purees – this blog is our journey through parenthood.
Food, cooking and baking have always been things which interested us both – so once those mad few months of being a new parent had subsided and the brilliant world of weaning came into view- naturally enough we started trading recipes. As our little people have grown (by god do they grow fast) we have gone from blended slushy stuff to more textured stuff to now pretty much full on baking and full meals.
Neither of us can really remember why blogging our stuff felt like a good idea – in truth it was probably being inspired by other great parent bloggers (see our links page) and getting so much cool advice from parent tweeters. Its such a great community out there that being involved just felt like the right thing to do.
We hope you’ll find our recipes and blogs useful. Not being the sorts to follow the rigorous science-style-meal-planning we’ll apologise upfront if its a bit tricky to understand how we’ve ordered the stuff on here. We’re currently pulling all our recipes together into an e-book which we’ll give away someday soon – but until then following @GoodStuff4Kids on twitter is a good way of keeping in touch or check out our Facebook page.
