About A Mummy Too

I am Emily Leary

The food and lifestyle blog for busy parents

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 300 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. It’s all written with input from husband Mark, son JD (7), and daughter Jay (3).
