for good, healthy family meals.
Would like the recipes to be straightforward without 2000 ingridients.

Mary berry book is my bible. Some family, some entertainment - never had a recipe go wrong though!

I have too so many recipe books but the best recipes are from the current food magazines - Delicious, Good Food, Olive, Easy Cook - they are seasonal and usually something new.

Having said that I do like River Cottage Every Day and Jamie Oliver's Ministry of Food.

Nigel slater real fast food. Delish, quick but he doesn't go easy on butter cream etc

Jamies dinners also like his new 30 min one.

Like tana Ramsay books too for ease

Check out this blog

it's all about cooking good family food. We've already done a few and they're easy. It's an added bonus to cook with them the children and get the evening meal made!

Garden Cookbook by Sarah Raven. Most recipes easy and family friendly, some veggie, some meat, some puds, preserves etc. My bible.

Agree re mags as well. I highly recommend the Sainsbury's magazine recipes.
