Format: Hardcover
Really excellent cookery book with lots of fab ideas that don't take too much time or effort to make - but taste fantastic!

It's exactly the type of recipe book I like as it doesn't generally tell you to use bizarre ingredients that you either have never heard of or are unlikely to find in your average supermarket.

There are lots of lovely bright pictures in the book - so I have something to aim at when I am making the recipes - I find that really helpful!

The three minute sponge cake is really nice and rather morish!

I'd recommend this book as an everyday cookbook, especially for those coming home tired from work or in a hectic family with children, as the food is relatively quick and easy but tasty!

Recommended.

since this was aimed foe children I assumed there would be more "quick and easy" recipes as toddlers needs / tastes vary from one minute to the next.... the recipes arent laborious but not quite what i expected

My favourite so far has the be the 3 minute cake - it was worth buying the book for that alone! Some lovely recipes that I can't wait to try, easy to follow instructions, lots of veggie recipes too.

I love to cook and have 100's of cookery books, but sometimes you just need something quick and easy which works and everyone in the family will eat. This book delivers just that. I have already tried the 3 minute sponge which is absolutely genius! Perfect for week nights when the cries of 'what's for pudding!' fill the air and you've had no time to prepare anything and have cleared the cupboards of all the chocolate biscuits in preparation for your latest health kick. A note of caution though...sadly it does taste rather good and you may find yourself making one for personal consumption.

The recipes in Top Bananas! are reassuringly based on the most popular tried and tested recipes loaded on to Mumsnet by parents themselves, so it is full of humour and understanding about what it is to be a time-strapped parent. There are a lovely mix of healthy and easy to follow veggie, meat and fish recipes and many novel ideas for snacks, baking and party food. It is handily divided in to chapters, with lots of tips about and encouragement with getting kids to EAT plus attractive photos (very important!). There are several recipes that can be used as a base and experimented with, which excites me a lot.

We have had a busy week trying out some of the recipes. I made the delicious cranberry granola and felt very snazzy slapping a homemade sticker on the jar. The naturally sweet butternut and red onion soup was another hit with my normally anti-soup kids. My partner and I loved the (one-pan!) sophisticated sea bass - it's so simple and we wil be cooking it for guests. Me and the boys made the beautifully moist chocolate bribe biscuits together, and they adored the eggy doorsteps. They also loved having banana pancakes for breakfast. It's so nice to have new ideas.

My absolute standout recipe has to be the malt loaf. It was so simple to make (each ingredient is a teacup's worth) and is now a household staple.

Other stand-out recipes I will be trying are kedgeree (a clever way to introduce the kids to spices), golden wonder (a sort of courgette tortilla oven-baked for ease), kid-friendly potato and chickpea curry, salmon espanol, yorkshire towers, 60-second cheesecake (genius!

Really impressed by this book.
The recipes actually look do-able, whether you are a proficient cook or more of a novice like me. Flipping through it I saw many recipes which I could actually see myself making, and the kids were excited eg. about chocolate play dough, pizzas etc. Also, the tips at the front about feeding kids are so sensible and down-to-earth- great.
The tone of it is very blowsy and upbeat- I liked it, it might grate on some eg. repitition of phrases like "No biggie!"
It isn't a general cook book so you're going to want to supplement it with a basics book like a Good Housekeeping manual, if you want a manual to cook everything. Each recipe takes up two pages.
It is beautifully put together- lovely high quality design, full colour throughout, photos worth salivating over, hard cover. It would make a good present, I think. In short, a strongly recommended book.

This is a great cookbook, with lovely humour throughout. I bought it a while ago, but wanted to test some recipes before reviewing.
I've probably made around ten recipes so far. The kid friendly curry is a big hit, and some of the slow cooker ones are great too. The baking recipes have been brill, the brownies are to die for, banana bread and malt loAf are good too.
I'd consider myself a decent cook,and a pretty good baker, but this book has given me a few 'holy Grail' recipes.highly recommend.
