We can appreciate Chrissie Swan for plenty of things. She is incredibly funny, tells life in all its honest glory, and we adore hearing her on our radios.
But, there is something you probably don’t know about Chrissie. She is quite the home cooking whiz, passing on her knowledge to her Instagram followers.
While you might not be expecting her on MasterChef anytime soon (she has plenty of other things going on), she is helping out parents across Australia to make easy and realistic meals.
And, no, not those meals that say they will take 15 minutes and really having you labouring for over an hour, but genuinely achievable meals the whole family loves.
