I have always been a good and enthusiastic cook and while I had the luxury of time (read before kids) I would happily spend 2 hours making lasagne or something similar. Now with a family to feed, entertain and maintain, there just is neither the time or the inclination to indulge in long complicated menus. To find a bit of inspiration for fast but still really good food I was hunting through Amazon. I bought this book on the strength of the reviews and were not disappointed. The book contains a wealth of great recipes and none take long to make and none are particularly compliated (read not too many fancy ingredients). Yet nowhere is taste sacrificed. Really really tasty food. The book is organised in useful sections, making it easy to flick through and find something suitable for what you have to hand. There are recipes suitable for lunches, snacks, and both light and more substantial dinners. Very user friendly. The writing is as approachable as the recipes. A must have for anyone who loves food but do not have the time for overelaborate recipes.
