Hello, and welcome to Mandi’s Making…. , my new little home blog. I’m Mandi, a housewife and stay at home mum with a gorgeous baby girl. I’m from Melbourne and in my late twenties. I love to cook, read and craft (not that I’ve had much time for craft with my little bubba around!). I love to make simple meals that don’t take that much time, and that only use a few ingredients. I aim to make my meals budget and family friendly, with foods for teeny tiny mouths as well as bigger ones. I’m also very big on DIY pantry staples, so keep an eye out for recipes for basics like vanilla essence, herb mixes, and sauces. I look forward to bringing you my favourite recipes and little tips, and hope you find them useful!
