Let’s not leave those who serve our country behind.

Let’s not leave those who serve our country behind.

Can New Zealand do more to ensure that past, present and future service people - and their whānau – are recognised and supported?

I would like to say THANK YOU to all the people that worked behind the scenes during lockdown. Yes, we thanked the doctors, nurses, police, emergency departments, chemists, and other frontline people. I appreciate what they have done for us and they have my sincere thanks.

I just feel there are a group of people that do not get any recognition such as the rubbish and recyclable collectors that continued to "clean up" our rubbish.

I am sure there are so many people we do not know about such as administration jobs behind the scenes to make sure it all worked smoothly.

If I have not mentioned any group, please let us all know so they can also get to be acknowledged for their generous contribution in keeping us safe.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME AND MY DEAREST ONES

Hi everyone - I am the food editor at Stuff and I will be posting recipes, kitchen hacks and weekly meal plan ideas on this page. If you have any recipes to share or questions, feel free to send me a message.
If you were one those who turned to baking to get through lockdown - and even if you weren't! - thought I'd kick off by sharing the two most popular recipes on Stuff during those seven weeks: pull-apart hot cross bun bread, a recipe from Nicola Galloway, and cheese straws, a recipe from Sam Mannering. Let me know what you cooked in lockdown too.
