Jax for you !

Hello, I'm Jax Hamilton, amongst other things, a bloody good cook, mother, author
and your pantry mate.

I've created quick and easy short cuts that you can layer to help you on your way to create fabulous dishes with personality. You can combine the "hax" to suit you as an individual, couple, family and the contents of your pantry. Thus not only saving time, but also space and money.

I passionately believe we don't have to sacrifice what we cook and eat because of the time pressures we are under and I'm sure you will slap your head and laugh at the simplicity of it all! Before long my hax will become your everyday essentials.

Simply browse the hax below, trawl the categories or search a food problem/food type, then let me help you to resuscitate and revitalize those dormant ingredients taking up space in your pantry!

Free to access. Easy to share. Fun to learn.
