Short and Sweet by Dan Lepard

I had my eye on this book for some time, as there were some wonderful recipes inside that I wanted to try. I finally received this book for Christmas and got stuck into it straight away. I have now tested nine recipes, enough to get the feel of Lepards book, but sadly none of the recipes have proved a success. There seems to be a consistent theme of measurements not being enough, cooking time too short and generally unimpressive results. I would like to add that I am a very experienced baker, and have no problems with other recipe books. A real shame

My skin was was softer even after the first use, and I'll be using the express pedi as a regular part of my beauty routine.

In the course of addressing the complex issues surrounding the current crisis, Jones places much emphasis on the policies of the Thatcher government. 'Chavs' marks the de-industrialization of Britain during the 1980's as a seminal moment in the dissolution of the traditional working class community,… Read more
