Another great book from this lady. I,ve got a couple in this series, I like quick results when i,m sewing and this book delivers every time. Great ideas for your home or for gifts too and all with only half a yard of fabric, so you can splash out and buy something really special. Treat yourself, you will not be disappointed I promise.

5.0 out of 5 stars I cook!!, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I suppose it just confirmed my own feelings that the more you cook the better you eat. Even a simple meal like egg on toast is probably a lot better for you than something out of a box or packet. You don,t need to spend endless hours preparing and cooking fancy meals to eat well. This is not a prescriptive diet or recipe book, just Bittmans thought about how we should and could eat better, in today's hard pushed world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind blowing, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Found this book recently, so glad I did. It has completely turned my head around in the endless search for my perfect diet. See, I knew what to do all along, just didn,t know it. The answer.. EAT. I,m feeling better in myself physically and emotionally now I eat to appetite, what my body tells me I want or need. Just common sense in some ways but I had stopped trusting in my own self and lost my way in a welter of " healthy eating " manuals. I,m reading a lot of his stuff at the moment and it does repeat the theme but this book was my first, and so glad I found it.xx


The Great Cholesterol Con: The Truth About What Really Causes Heart Disease and How to Avoid It
The Great Cholesterol Con: The Truth About What Really Causes Heart Disease and How to Avoid It
Price: £3.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Pulls the rug on the cholesterol fallacy, 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I,ve had my doubts about cholesterol, statins and heart disease for some time. Not because of any scientific knowledge, but based on my Husbands experience and that of his family with heart disease. My mother In law ate an old fashioned cholesterol and fat laden diet for all of her 97 years and my husband, as fit as a flea, with a cholesterol reading lower than 4 suffered a heart attack aged 52. He was not prescribed statins at the time but persuaded by his GP to go on a statin trial to see if his low. Reading could be lowered even more. He has suffered from joint and muscle pain and his memory is not very good at all, still they want him to continue with the drugs. Based on the evidence in this book he is thinking about stopping them now, thank goodness. Kendrick writes with humour and makes what could be very dull reading, fascinating and compelling. A very good read for anyone with concerns about their health and diet and the hold of big pharma!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just up my street., 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I,m so pleased with this purchase. I wish I,d come across this chap before now. Straightforward cooking, honest recipes and full of the kind of information every cook needs to deal with today's cooking. Just hits the spot for the modern cook but on the other hand lots of good solid stuff for the more traditional approach. I love the fact that the author explains the how and why of different techniques and methods without assuming that the reader is plain ignorant or knows it all. I couldn,t ask for a better companion in the kitchen, and I,ve even taken it to bed on several occasions.
