  • About Goodto

    Goodto, is the ultimate online destination for busy, women of all ages. Established in 2007, the website was originally created as a platform for some of the UK’s best lifestyle magazines, including Women’s Weekly and Essentials.

    Over the years we’ve worked hard to create a wide breadth of original features, along with thousands of inspirational cooking ideas. From the latest wellbeing news to afternoon tea ideas and Mrs Hinch’s best cleaning hacks – we’ve got you covered!

    Recipes and how to cook videos

    We’ve also built up a huge collection of fuss-free recipes and how to cook guides, many of which have been created by celebrity chefs – such as Mary Berry, Gordon Ramsey, Joe Wicks, Hairy Bikers and Nadiya Hussain.

    We specialise in healthy family meals and cheap healthy meals. In our video series, How to Cook Absolutely Everything we teamed up with some of the nation’s best restaurateurs, and chefs, including Honest Burger’s Tom Barton, Masterchef winner Tim Anderson, and the king of pasta Theo Randall.

    Meet the team

    Anna Bailey, Editor

    Anna Bailey is the editor of Goodto. She joined the team in June 2018 but has been a lifestyle writer and online editor for more than 14 years.

    An NCTJ trained and NCE qualified journalist, she began her career in local journalism, working as a reporter for the Basingstoke Gazette in Hampshire – and has attended more than her fair share of village fetes and council meetings.

    As Lifestyle Editor for ITV.com she managed the websites for the broadcaster’s best-loved shows including Coronation Street, Emmerdale, This Morning, Loose Women, and various fashion and cookery programmes.

    Before joining GoodtoKnow, she was also a Features Editor at MSN UK, where she oversaw the Health & Fitness and Travel sections – and was Digital Lifestyle Editor for the broadcaster UKTV. She’s also contributed to various other publications, including The Mirror, LoveFood, LoveExploring, and TBSeen. Anna graduated from  Bournemouth University in 2004 with a degree in Multi-Media Journalism.


    Jessica Dady, Senior Content Editor

    Jessica Dady is a Senior Content Editor at Goodto.com, working across family, health, and wellbeing content. She joined the team in 2012 as Recipes Assistant following her graduation from Brunel University.

    Jessica works closely with Goodto’s Test Kitchen to create trending recipes and how-to videos – and has been lucky enough to interview some of nation’s best-loved chefs including Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood, and The Hairy Bikers.

    A passionate baker, Jessica spends much of her time creating celebration cakes. Along with Goodto, Jessica has also written for Honest Cooking, Fresh, Essentials, and Eat In magazine, and has previously worked with BBC, Good Housekeeping, Reader’s Digest, TV Choice, Marks & Spencers, and UKTV.


    Grace Walsh, Features Writer

    Grace Walsh is a Features Writer for Goodto, covering everything in the world of food, health, and fitness, relationships, and family. She definitely spends too much time on Instagram.

    Grace graduated from the University of Warwick in 2019 with a degree in Classical Civilisation and Italian, with a year spent living in Rome. This was where she discovered everything there is to love about cooking and food.

    During her studies, Grace was involved in both the student newspaper and radio station at Warwick. Writing about the issues affecting students and speaking about current affairs on her radio show, she quickly discovered that Features was where she wanted to be. Along with Goodto, Grace has also written for Woman&Home, Cosmopolitan UK and culture magazine, The Upcoming.


    Emily Stedman, Junior features Writer

    Emily Stedman is a junior features writer for Goodto.com covering all things food, family, health, and wellbeing. Harbouring an addiction (and unhealthy hoarding habit) for women’s magazines from a young age, Emily always knew a career in journalism was for her – graduating with her subsequent degree at the University of Sussex in 2019.

    Following successful work placements at the BBC, Men’s Health magazine, and the digital content studio for ELLE and Cosmopolitan, Emily landed her first role at HELLO! magazine in 2020. It was there that her obsession for the royals reached new heights and her specialist Mastermind subject was determined: The Duchess of Cambridge’s best looks 2015-present.
