Sara Leonardi-McGrath: 'The McGrath's Kitchen' Food Blog

Sometimes, you can build a lovely relationship with someone on social media - finding things in common you never knew you had.

I have three strong elements of my character in common with Sara Leonardi-McGrath.

We both adore cooking, we both love family, and our parents are from the same region in Sicily!

Sara - married to cricketing legend Glenn McGrath - has started a food blog called 'The McGrath's Kitchen'. You can follow it here.

I asked her why she started her blog. Here is what she said:

"I started blogging because I needed an outlet and I wanted to communicate with others who, like me, had the same issue: feeding our families. It's the most important job we have - nutrition is the building block of good health. I feel obligated to cook good food for my family and more importantly to get them to eat it. It's not the easiest task!

I also love cooking and I am Italian so it's a part of who I am. I have always loved cooking but cooking for a family is different and can become a chore with lots of repetitive meals that bore the one who has to cook them as much as the ones that have to eat them.

I asked around and so many of the people I know are in the same boat with food. The blog forced me to change things up and also document my recipes, my experience... I wanted to share that.

I love being a stepmum. It's not easy: parenting in any form is not easy. I do my best."

I take my hat off to Sara. She does a champion job. Here is her beautiful family:
