I started this blog called Cooking in Batches after I started making packed lunch for both me and my husband. It's been a good 2 years now since we've started. Between being a wife, a daughter and working, like any other person with a busy schedule - time is of the essence. Eating-out these days, I feel is a luxury. 

I kept notes on types of recipes I could make for ready-to-go meals. Did a bit of reading on what I can make that saves time - yet, it has to be good, wholesome and healthy. Most importantly it should be economical. 

This blog hopes to share with you all there is to know about how to save by making meals in batches and to share neat tips and tricks around the kitchen. Since I am writing all the way from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, my notes for prices will be mainly in Malaysian Ringgit (MYR), you can roughly gauge the damage on groceries based on your local market prices. 

I know, that cooking is not for all of us and time is never always on our side. However, it doesn't hurt to try it once. Try it, take one weekend, prepare your meals for the week. For yourself and the family. If you are new in the kitchen - don't worry, there is no right or wrong to cooking, its all about experimenting. Trial and error. Start with the little things and move on to bigger dishes. Give it a try. 

In support of the local market and good home cooked meals!
