This is definitely a companion volume to bake. In Rachel's usual style the recipes are easy to follow and bake regardless if you are a newcomer to baking or an experienced one. As its title suggests it is jam packed with many different cakes to cover all sorts of cake baking and eating occasions.

The chapters are: Easy, Fast, Healthy, Classic, Teatime, Dessert, Children's Decorating Ideas, Celebration, Festive and Cake Essentials. The healthy chapter also contains cakes suitable for some food allergies including - vegan, dairy and egg free, gluten free and sugar free.

What do foodie minded (and bellied) folk eat when they are cutting back a bit? I've wondered this often and it was with much anticipation that I opened this one up.

What's for Dinner?: Easy and delicious recipes for&hellip by Fay Ripley

I couldn't wait to see this one! I liked her previous one, but this one is better. Similar to the first in that it has lots of do-able child friendly recipes. All pictured. Tips at the end of recipes include storage, do-ahead bits and children and baby advice.

Last night I made the pork in a bun and coleslaw pictured on the front of the book which all my lot loved. Also, this morning made her `nutty nuggets of deliciousness' - little biscuits with almonds and hazelnuts sandwiched with Nutella. The name says it all - fabulous biscuits.

I've book marked more than half the recipes, an excellent second book.
