“Your books are amazing!!! I was a little bit apprehensive about buying both of them, but now that I have them I know I would have regretted not getting two! I have been having trouble getting my son (21 months) to eat his dinner. Since using your books he has eaten every meal I have cooked!! I am also enjoying the different treats, and so is my husband who is a bit of a sweet tooth! Thanks so much for making cooking enjoyable again! It makes a huge difference seeing smiles and an empty plate at the end of dinner time!” – Emily Westcott

“It’s home cooking at it’s best. Her recipes are the type you cook again and again. So do you need both books? Well, I took advantage of Wendy’s deal on the two books and I’m glad I did. The recipes do not repeat, so I’m not disappointed that I have both books. In fact, I think giving someone both books would make a great present as they are practical and pretty at the same time!” –

“Hi Wendy, I had to tell you we love your Vegie smugglers in our house! I’ve gone through a number of recipes and love them. I’ve recommended them to my friends and family. My sister in particular, was so excited after having a look at my cookbook she wants one now. Thanks again” – Jenness

“Hi, I just wanted to say thankyou for your recipes and inspiration. I cooked your baked tuna and tomato rice for my fussy children last night and it was the least stressful dinner that we have had in a long time. Thankyou soooo much” – TinyBabyShop

“I got my veggie smuggler books last week and have started my week with a menu plan consisting of three of your recipes in the first three days ( and wishing I had more room for more in the rest of the week!) last night was magic vege pasta sauce with gnocchi- DEEELISH and my carnivore hubby didn’t even ask where the meat was! And tonight shepherds pie- so good we had seconds requests! I can’t wait to make the vegetarian lasagne tomorrow! With four adults and 2 toddlers in this house and so many different tastes, we are two for two with your recipes. Love them thank you!” – Alli Brown

“i just wanted to let you know i made the chicken pasta on Saturday night – with brocolli and zuchini. My husband detests brocolli and zuchini, i even told him it was in it so he knew. He said ‘babe – this is restaurant quailty’ My daughter likes her vegies but she is a mash fanatic – she asked for more. Your book is amazing and i cant wait to purchase more and do more cooking from them. Just wanted to give some feedback for other mums out there that these recipes are ACE!!!” – Rebecca

    I am thinking I will have to get your Book – My boy Mr 3 was born at 25 weeks and has had issues with Gag reflex which is Mostly resolved – Thankfully he doesn’t have food aversion from that – How ever he is Mostly a monkey when it comes to a Hot dinner with a couple of exceptions ( Ie – Fish and smashed potatoes which is baked potatoes all smashed so they get a little crunchy) and If we are eating at my Sisterinlaws House as she has 3 children who are older the Gabe and he loves to Emulate their Eating and will eat almost anything they try! Sadly they live over an Hour away!! I have looked at some of your recipes on here and am still worried he wont try it but having said that he is always offered what we eat which frankly is pretty good food from Vegetarian Sheppards pie based on Baked beans to lovely Vegetarian Pasta to simple Bangers and Mash yet he is adamant he does not want it – He doesn’t get anything else if he wont try it and rarely gets anything else even if he does try it. One cheeky boy – he used to be an awesome eater – Loved Rice Curries! Sadly my Boy is a Vegemite Addict! Its the staple in his diet! off to see a Feeding clinic in 2 days… should be fun.

    Hello Wendy Blume!

    We shared a flat in London, in Kensington Gardebs Square. I think you were working at TNT Mag at the time. Congratulations on your success story with Vegie Smugglers! I will have to buy your books now, (a) so I can boast about being incredibly close friends with the author!, and (b) because my 4 year old is a horror when it comes to eating fruit and veg. I know that is probably my fault, but it ain’t too late to remedy it. Hope you remember me, and that you are well. I would like to subscribe to your email list too if possible?

    Thanks Wendy,

    Amy 🙂

    Just wondering if you have any intention of doing a budget menu plan? I’m currently trying your meal plan cookbook – such amazing food!! My husband especially is impressed at how good it all tastes! However I’m trying to get my budget down to $100 per week for a family of four and a 1/2 (not including bread, milk, staples) and whilst I’m using everything in my fridge by the end of the week, it’s still a bit out of budget (especially post Christmas!!)… would absolutely love a budget version!
