I could not believe I actually made the meals myself, as they have all been like know other.She is one hell of a fantastic cook,all the family love her meals,and we have fussy eaters ,now all the plates are empty.Please write more books!!
I purchased Melinda Messenger's Family Cookbook (even though I live on my own) because of a recipe I saw in a magazine whilst at the hairdressers, I started to write the recipe down, then my brain got into gear and I just took the book title and searched on amazon. Brilliant idea. I have only prepeared two of the dishes from this book but was more than pleasantly surprised with the results. The Campfire Chilli had all the vegetables in which I dont normally like when cooked on their own and I was also apprehensive about adding pesto. The cheese and sour cream topping made It a fantastic tasting chilli. I also tried the Cod roasted in lemon and thyme, again the combination of tastes made a very enjoyable meal. All in all a very worth while trip to the hairdressers.
I had to write a review for this cook book!, am an amazon cookbook veteran (much to my husbands annoyance) and I think in terms of family cookbooks this rates as one of the best. Within three days of receiving the book, I had cooked three recipes. Fun, family orientated and accessible recipes. I have to say "well done Melinda" and thanks for creating such a fab cookbook.
