Say goodbye to ready meals
on 28 February 2007
After years of ready meals I felt I had to try and start some real cooking. For health reasons I had to reduce the salt and additive content that I was eating through ready meals. This book is reasonably priced and has a superb range of meals that really do taste good. The author explains each step in detail and although there are no pictures I have not found this to be a disadvantage. This book has introduced me to vegetarian meals, previously I always thought they were tasteless, in addition her salad recipes are superb, simple and in no way boring. The preparation times in the book are accurate but the washing up does add another 15mins or so. A superb book to wean one off the ready meals. Buy it.
Update May 2011. I am still using this book after four years. Recently bought another copy as my original became a bit dog eared. Bonus: the book's tip on how to make simple french salad dressing is superb and has saved me buying many sugar laden supermarket bottled versions.
