WELCOME TO This Little Home

Where Food and Family-Life Meet!

At This Little Home we want to share our love for cooking with you! It is our belief that food is a way for loved ones to connect, in the kitchen and around the table.

And, it doesn’t have to feel like a chore! We can help with that!

Hi, I’m Rebecca Foxley, a busy mum of three and a passionate foodie! I understand the struggle to get delicious, homemade meals on the table every day.

That’s why I created This Little Home: to empower families like mine to cook confidently through meal planning, prep-ahead strategies, and smart shortcuts.

Growing up, my passion for food blossomed while working at my parents’ farm cafe. I discovered the joy of creating recipes that brought families together. This experience, along with my partner’s Italian heritage, continues to fuel my love for cooking from scratch and exploring diverse cuisines.

Now, with my own family, I want to help you ditch the stress and rediscover the joy of cooking delicious recipes that bring your family together.

What makes This Little Home unique?

  • Prep-ahead strategies: Learn how to save time by chopping veggies in advance, prepping ingredients for multiple recipes, and utilising the freezer.
  • Smart shortcuts: Discover time-saving ideas like using store-bought tortillas or pre-made pizza dough, without sacrificing flavour.
  • Family-friendly focus: All recipes are kid-tested and approved, ensuring they’re delicious for everyone at the table.
