Thanks for some great simple and tasty recipe ideas
on 25 March 2013
I'm really enjoying this cookbook, along with my family! My 15 year old daughter and a friend are learning to cook for their Duke of Edinburgh skill and tried the 'Sausage and Sweet Potato Bake' this weekend for Sunday lunch. They both found the recipe simple to follow, thought the dish looked really pretty to look at with its' bright orange sweet potato, and smelled great cooking - that combination of rosemary and browning onions is superb! They felt successful in their efforts and we all really enjoyed a great lunch. We all had a go scraping the crispy, gooy bits of onion off the edges of the pan.Really tasty and a solid win - win, for one tired Mum.
One of the things I really like about Thrifty Cook Main Meals is the ease of the recipes - they all seem easy to follow using simple ingredients - most of which I've got in my store cupboard! So many recipes today seem to take so long to prepare and call for unusual ingredients that are difficult for me to source. The kids are going for the 'Chunky Veg Casserole' next weekend. Roll on Thrifty cook - I'm in heaven. Can't wait to see what you've got in store for puddings!
