I have Fay's first book and it has become my go to book with lots of lovely recipes. I pre-ordered this on the back of the previous book and I'm happy to say it is full of sane, simple meals that I'm looking forward to trying. The only reason for taking away one star is because of the ridiculous way the recipes are ordered. Instead of having clear sections with either breakfast, desserts, certain types of mains etc. which the first one did so well, this book is in days of the week. This means that if you want a dessert you have to go through the whole book to find them all as there are a few at the end of each day, for instance you find them on pages 36, 64, 66, 90, 93 etc. and then bizarrely you get a breakfast after the dessert in one chapter! This is VERY frustrating and time wasting for a book that is all about no fuss. Please, please next time don't do this as I love the books.

It's interesting, isn't it, how positive reviews always seem to be voted as more helpful than negative reviews? It's as if the voters really want to like the product they are looking at and don't want to hear anything bad about it.

For what it's worth, the reason why I didn't take to this book, at all, is the almost total lack of organization. Main meals, breakfasts and desserts are all thrown together and given a good shake so you never know what's going to be on the next page--it could be anything. This makes it impossible to browse through a selection of dinners, for example, to compare them, and to home in on what you fancy. And please don't underestimate this. As you've probably experienced for yourself, page flipping through, for example, all of the dinners in a cookbook, one after the other, really helps to get the appetite going, and helps you to choose just what exactly you'd like to make at any given time of the day. Again, it just isn't possible to do this with this book unless you flip through the entire thing every single time (either that or you get down to some serious work with a stack of post-it notes).

When the book first arrived, I flipped through it for several minutes without settling on anything before my brain finally said, 'What the heck am I looking at?' Desserts followed by main meals followed by breakfasts followed by more desserts. Rather than get my appetite going, it seemed a little revolting. I flipped back a few pages in the search for a chapter heading that might shed some light on the matter and all it said was 'Thursday'. Great. That clears that up, then.

Fay Ripley's first cook book is so warn out from over use. I think I must have tried 90 per cent of the recipes. I was so excited she was doing another book and she has somehow managed to make this as fantastic as the first which I thought would be impossible. I think her approach to family cooking is amazing and my children love her food. It is such a joy that we can all eat the same food together. I have so far made the trout in puff pastry, the fish cakes and the chicken nuggets all of which were easy to make and delicious. I would recommend this to everyone. I am already looking forward to her third book.

I love Fay's first book and whole attitude to life and family. I, like her, love food but with a young family it can sometimes be a challenge putting the two together. Fay's books are full of family friendly meals for all occasions.

I've several favourites out of her first book that I make time and time again. However, I've flicked through her new book twice now and I actually think its even better! Almost all recipes appeal to me and I can see how they would work at a family level.

What Fay has over the usual celebrity chef is a down to earth and witty approach that makes you feel instantly at ease. She's one of us, not one of them! I think that's why her style and recipes feel so accessible.

I pre-ordered this book as soon as it was available based on her last book and I've not been disappointed.

Well done Fay and please keep them coming x

Having being recommended Fay's recipes by a friend I have tried one so far - the sachertorte. I would highly recommend it as it was very, very good and hopefully a sign of other recipes to try. Next up definitely the Bakewell cake. All the recipes seem short and doable; not too many ingredients, which makes a change from other cookbooks i own.

This is a great selection of family friendly recipes, perfect for busy mums juggling after school clubs, kids homework etc. I've tried 8 recipes so far - they have all been straight forward and on the whole, quick to prepare. I am quite a good cook but don't have time, or the inclination, to cook fancy meals (that may go uneaten) and am fed up with variations on a theme of bland "nursery" food. These recipes have given me extra ideas to liven up mealtimes and make it interesting for us all without adding to food preparation time.

One of my kids is super fussy at the moment but I've been able to cook his meal in the same dish at the same time without any dressing/marinade etc, saving time and washing up. For example, the Tangy Chicken and Squash Tray Bake I cooked plain chicken and new potatoes for the kids and squash/chicken with dressing for the adults - a hit all round.

Some of the seasonings may need doubling for grown ups - we could barely taste the Quick Zingy Lamb Kebab seasoning but the kids rejected it immediately as "spicy" (yet they will eat a takeaway curry without hesitation so "spicy" clearly just means different)! They enjoyed assembling the wraps though so next time they'll have plain lamb. Ditto the Quick Rub Lamb Chops.

Once you've done a recipe once you may want to add your own touches to tailor the food. The Egg Fried Rice was a quick and easy hit. I livened it up with bowls of extra chopped ham and prawns for the kids to sprinkle on. We had requests for sweetcorn and cashews next time.

We rarely eat gluten and dairy due to intolerances. So many child friendly recipe books are based around pasta, pizza and cheese recipes, which I find very frustrating. The recipes we tried were either dairy and gluten free or easily adaptable.
