4.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm - good but my expectations were off!, 21 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Madhouse Cookbook: Delicious Recipes for the Busy Family Kitchen (Hardcover)
Not sure how I feel about this one yet.

I have jo's other 2 books (in the mood for food and in the mood for entertaining) and I love both. I regularly get them out to drool over and have had a lot of success with the recipes. Had I not got these books I'd have instantly loved this latest one.

I'm a mum that likes to cook. I've got a collection of family style books (Fay ripley being queen bee here) and a collection of "grown up" books. Jo's first books fit the latter I'd say and I think I was hoping the new one would be more along the lines of the others too.

As a family cookbook this will give Fay a run for her money. It's jam packed with ideas and tips alongside the actual recipes. The recipes for families look great. I can see me using a lot of these already.

I just hoped it would be a bit more indulgent with some posh options I suppose, carrying on from the previous 2.

I've not cooked anything yet but I fully expect the recipes to work well as jo's always do.

I think for me, this book will add to my family collection but when we have friends over or I want something special for 2, I will refer to her previous books. These really are my favourite cookery books and I have over 200!
