for soups and also salads. Just ones that use ordinary ingredients from my fridge rather than fancy dinner party cookbooks

I tend to stick with either Nigella's 'How to cook' (a really good store cupboard cook book) and also Tana Ramsay's 'family kitchen' is great to - although not sure if i would ever have herring in my fridge! Hope this helps

For salads "fat girl slim' by Ruth Watson (her off the Hotel Inspector) is excellent - it's a diet book, but don't let that put you off, everything i've made from it is tasty and easy - and it has a whole section on how to make a bag of salad more interesting.

I tend to make soups by just stuffing some veg in with an fried onion and a potato - but do have the Covent Garden Soup book, which has some nice ones in it.

They sound good, I'll have a look at them.
