5.0 out of 5 stars Full of great tasting healthy dishes, 17 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While containing a number of recipes that are fairly quick (20 minutes) to prepare, cooking times for a number of dishes are measured in hours rather than minutes. The book contains meals that can be prepared in the oven, under the grill or in the pan. The emphasis is on healthy eating and minimising calories but offers a fantastic array of dishes and flavours.

Dishes can be served with salad, rice or vegetables and vary from soups to full blown curries. The recipes range from cooking drumsticks to a full chicken. For healthy, varied and economic eating to suit any occasion this is a superb book. KFC eat your heart out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for taste buds - bad for waist lines!, 17 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With piles of cup cakes becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to expensive wedding cakes this book could save you a fortune! Varieties of cup cakes occupy about 40 of the 200+ pages. The remainder of the book is filled with a seres of delights for anyone with a sweet tooth. They are all a match for anything you might see in your local coffee shop.

While more specialist and not as useful as other books in this series, on a day to day basis, if you are planning any entertaining with cakes to the fore this book will provide you with ideas and inspiration galore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Part of a great series, 17 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After purchasing various cook books over the years, the BBC 101 series has proved to be a real winner. My wife almost dissuaded me from buying this book on account of not wanting to spend 30 minutes cooking supper! In fact that is a maximum time taken to prepare any recipe and most are a good deal quicker. The minutes are real and not Jamie Oliver minutes!!

The recipes are varied covering pasta, salads, soups, sweets and a variety of snack dishes. The ingredients are readily found, dishes take no more than 3 simple steps to prepare and all are delicious. In short this is a fabulous book which will help you delight your palate with not much effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best album for the British hits, 14 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are looking at Stylistics greatest hits albums the chances are you are familiar with their slick soul sound that made regular visits to the UK charts in the 1970s. There are other available compilation albums but this is the one to buy if you want all the British hits.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good country record, 14 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Loved Her First (Audio CD)
Unless you are a country fan it is likely that you will find this album too 'American' for British taste. If you like country music then Heartland is to be savoured and enjoyed. The stand out track is 'I Loved Her First' which, in terms of lyrics, must be close to the best father/daughter wedding song of all time. Do take a look on You Tube for a full rendition. I have known grown men cry!! I have known others call for the sick bag! The track is not typical of the album which is full of good ol' boys songs and well worth a listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good way to experience the US latin music scene, 14 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Now Latino 4 (Audio CD)
As with all Now products, this album is only as good (or bad) as the hits of the time. The Country and Latino versions do not seem to be issued in such a timely manner as the mainstream releases. Nonetheless I have found them all to be an enjoyable listen and a great way to build a CD collection of less well known genres.

If you are very discerning, you may wish to listen to samples first. It can be fun to find a song long before anyone else and well ahead of the release of the English equivalent. Shakira first appeared on American Latin releases in her mid teens and Suerte appeared long before the English version 'Whenever Wherever'.

See if you can get ahead of your friends!

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice peace of folk nostalgia, 14 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Despite having only two UK top 30 hits, Tom Dooley and San Miguel, there can be little doubt that the Kingston Trio was a major player in the 1950s folk boom. Only Tom Dooley appears on this album but it is difficult to fault the track listing which includes Pete Seeger's incomparable protest song Where Have All The Flowers Gone.

It's a pleasant enough listen but the music sounds terribly dated. Other artists from the era such as Buddy Holly have aged much better.

I bought this stand for a 50" plasma TV. High class furnitures it is not! If you are seeking an inexpensive solution to your TV mounting problems, that looks perfectly reasonable and does the job, you can't go far wrong with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the greatest hits to get!, 14 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hits [Us Import] (Audio CD)
Faith Hill has had more success in the UK than most USA country singers, with ballads to the fore. A UK 'greatest hits' collection has been released but this album is far superior if you are looking to buy a collection of her work. For those that don't know Faith's songs beyond Breathe, This Kiss and There You'll Be, you will be in for a treat when you buy this album. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very popular with South Africans!, 14 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Johnny Clegg was a trailblazer with his multi racial group(s) in the apartheid years. This retrospective is an excellent cross section of his work. It contains Impi which is an incredibly popular track with South Africans. Anyone who enjoyed Paul Simon's Graceland with its infectious African rhythms will enjoy this album. Take a listen to the samples and I am sure you will wish to hear more.
