We like to tell ourselves we're far too busy to cook these days...Less than forty years ago people had jobs and families to look after, but still managed to prepare and cook meals from scratch every day of the week - without the modern conveniences of supermarkets and fast food; or a fridge, food processor or microwave. But it is possible to feed your family a healthy, balanced diet (without depriving them of the things they like) even if you work full-time and don't have a lot of money. This book provides simple, wholesome and nutritious recipes for family meals; quick lunches, tasty puddings and cakes - and you don't have to spend hours slaving over a hot stove, or spend a fortune at the supermarket. There are menu plans, recipes, shortcuts and dozens of ideas for every meal, together with tried and tested tips to help you save your valuable time and money. Now everyone can be a yummy mummy or daddy in the kitchen.
