About A Mummy Too

I am Emily Leary

A Mummy Too was founded in 2011, born out of a love of family, food and photography. As a busy consultant with projects in all sorts of industries, this blog began as a place to celebrate that as well as all that, I’m a mummy too.

The blog grew at an incredible rate and in 2013, after a lot of plate spinning and one big deep breath, I left a 12-year career in digital marketing behind to write about food and lifestyle full-time. So, I’m still a working mum, but my focus has shifted and I couldn’t be happier.

Today, A Mummy Too is the place to come for daily recipes (there are currently over 350 in my recipe index), tips and video guides for anyone who believes a shortage of spare time shouldn’t mean you can’t enjoy beautiful, delicious things.

about amummytoo

I am resident food blogger for Avon UK and Family Food Blogger for AO.com. I am also a regular on local and national radio, and sometimes go and talk to other bloggers about blogging at events such as BlogSummit, Mumsnet Blogfest and Blog On.

As well as writing, I work on my YouTube channel and with brands to produce video content, from chat shows to recipe guides.

My recipes, tips and interviews have appeared in numerous newspapers, magazines, websites and radio stations, including…


I take the photographs on this site generally with a Canon 5D Mk II although occasionally with my trusty iPhone. I built and customised the website myself, using a third-party theme as the base. I’m always tweaking!

Please take a look around, drop me a line if you have any questions, and I hope you have fun while you’re here :)

Meet the rest of the team (aka my family)

I am the sole creator and author of A Mummy Too, but I couldn’t do any of it without these lovely people…


Mark is my gorgeous husband and also happens to be an extremely talented graphic designer, illustrator and photographer. I do the vast majority of the photography and design on this site myself, but he helps with the occasional banner or roundup template. Oh, and chances are, if I’m in shot, he took the photo. Thank you, hubster.

JD and Miss J

JD is our bright, funny, creative 7 year old son and Miss J is our smart, witty, creative 3 year old daughter. They are toy-testing, food-sampling, film-reviewing, mess-making experts and I couldn’t come up with craft ideas, pull together reviews or develop recipes without their input. They are my mini-heroes.


Maeve is a retired college lecturer and a super intelligent, mega creative whirlwind of wonderfulness. She’s also my mum. Occasionally, when I’m super busy and especially if I’m doing a bit of studio work, she helps keep things ticking over, researching and collating background info for articles and spotting typos. Mums are ace, aren’t they?
