This book is great. I often use it to get ideas for meals. The instructions are detailed and there are often ideas for adapting the recipes. My favourite recipe is in the "main meals" section. It is a recipe for hamburgers. I like that simplicity, that "no frills" character about it. The meals in it are very healthy. My whole family love the recipes. It uses the minimum amount of different ingredients, so there is no need to waste time buying tons of ingredients. It is my favourite cookbook.

This book is simple, but effective, my 6 and 7 year old brothers never get tired and neither do I.. My fav recipe is called "Jambalaya" it is soo good I now know the recipe by head and anytime we are stuck on what to cook I know there is a good recipe book ready with loads of cool stuff to cook....
