quick mealsThis is a handy little book for those who lead busy lives and don’t have the time or energy to cook elaborate meals.  There is a handy list of pantry essentials and Simon has used these core ingredients throughout the book.  The recipes are in weekly blocks and you can use this menu plan to plan ahead and make shopping easier.  Of course, you can create your own weekly plan by arranging recipes in a way to suit you.

Included are hits and variations you can try on the basic recipe.  These are ways to add flavour and sometimes give a recipe a whole new twist.  Simon has included tips that remind you to think ahead and save some time when cooking.  Also listed are recipes for side dishes like potato wedges, salad dressing, and coleslaw and tips on how to cook rice.  Easy to follow and informative, this  is a handy guide for when you come home after a long day and want something quick and easy to make that tastes yummy.

    Finally the cookbook I have been waiting for! Quick and easy is exactly what I need. Life on its own is complicated enough without the hussle of worrying about what you are making for dinner daily. I know many mums who will appreciate this book mainly because it will make their life a whole lot easier.

    Thanks alot

    This seems like it could be really useful. I struggle to eat well because of being really tired and often go for comfort food because good food is too much effort to make.
