Happy Christmas everyone!

We all know that Christmas is the perfect time to get together with all the family.

Relax after your Christmas guests have goneEven those of us hopeless at keeping in touch usually manage a meet-up over the Christmas period.

However, once the influx of people has disappeared and just a few mince pie crumbs remain, it is lovely to relax, put your feet up and enjoy some tranquillity (and dubious TV programmes.)

Unless you have small children of course!

Our Clever Cooking for One or Two cookbook is the perfect antidote to the Christmas frivolities. Full of easy recipes for one or two, it will keep you satisfied with delicious food, without having to slave in the kitchen for hours or waste ever-more expensive ingredients.
