I was so excited when I got this book as it could have been written for me!
I try to cook from scratch to avoid additives, but find it can be quite time consuming. This book shows you lots of ways to cut corners, and be prepared for more than one dish with just simple tweaking.
I read this book from cover to cover and loved all the tips to save time, such as 'always roast two chickens as this uses the same electricity and time, but leaves you ready to make tomorrows meal simply.'
I love the way the book is sectioned into categories which give a number of recipes using one key ingredient, so if you have a glut of rhubarb, or tomatoes for example, you need not make the same recipe twice, but will manage to use it all up!!!
Each recipe links naturally to the others in the book, with markers to show you where to find each ingredient. There are suggestions for swapping ingredients to acheive different flavours, and hints on how to freeze or store the various dishes.
Everyone I have shown this book to has dashed home to order it for themselves, this will definitely become one of my most used recipe books.() out of 5
