Do we have to join Fairfax Digital? I'm a little tired of joining this that and everything. Also, dare I ask what's in it for us?

Just a quick one today! Never throw away the left overs of a roast, simply put in a roasting dish, top off with mash potato and grated cheese and pop in oven voila - roasty pie! x

I am more interested in what is in it for you? Does fairfax get to reproduce these recipes for profit later on?

The recipes will be published on Essential Kids.  We won't be reproducing them elsewhere at a later point in time.

You are correct in that Fairfax could put them on our Cuisine site or other online recipe collections.

We are happy to inlcude a link to a member's blog etc if they wish to build up a profile for their recipe submissions.

It's a question I've been asked constantly at EB - where do dads go?

As men become increasingly hands-on in day-to-day parenting it's important to acknowledge the questions, fears and issues faced by dads and dads-to-be.

To that end we have teamed up with the blokes from Being Dad to offer a blokes perspective on this parenting gig.

Known for their best-selling range of DVDs and Books, Troy and Sam have a mission to help men become great dads.

The Being Dad section on EB has excerpts from the book, as well as regularly updated advice, information and stories for men and the women who love them.

Dad's Zone
Launched in tandem with the Being dad site is our Dad's Zone forum, for men to find support and advice from other men, and for women to seek a bloke's perspective! The forum is open and welcoming to all genders.
