Review by

This book is great to have for during the week but both my husband and I felt it wasn’t something that you’d use on a weekend, it didn’t have that something special. I’ve tried quite a few of the recipes now and I have found the cooking time to be slightly out for my slow cooker – I need to take some time off (something worth bearing in mind). I have tried – Caribbean chicken loaf (wasn’t great), oriental turkey wraps (tasty), chunky chilli con carne (fine), three-meat casserole (awful), pork with coriander & wine (fine), baked bean loaf (great), cauliflower cheese (very dry). So as you can see it is hitty missy – but isn’t any recipe book. What I do like about it is that there are some conversions so if you’re going for the true convenience food and using frozen vegetables for example, then she does give you the quantities for those. It really is simple to use, most recipes have just a few steps and they are so easy to follow. On average, I’ve found a recipe takes me no more than 15 minutes and if that still is too much on a morning, then you could prepare some of it the night before and keep it in the fridge.Whilst this book will never be one of my favourites, it does give you some flexibility for those mornings when you’re really pushed. Having said that, with some of the recipes there’s nothing wrong with cooking them overnight and reheating them the next night!
