Brand New Cookbook!

Just For One Or Two cookbook

Tadaa! I’m so excited to reveal our brand new cookbook – Just for One or Two.

If you love good food, cooked simply, and often cook for just one or two people then this cookbook is a must.

According to the Office for National Statistics, almost half of all families in the UK (46%) no longer share an evening meal every day. But that doesn’t mean to say we have to get by on junk food and microwave meals. Just For One or Two contains an array of delicious meals for one or two people. Each carefully crafted recipe uses readily available ingredients, requires little effort and tastes amazing.

As a busy working parent, I appreciate it’s not always possible for families to sit down and eat together, particularly during the week when other commitments can get in the way.
