I have to confess that I am not the world's best cook, but I am really trying to cut down on the ready meals we buy. I need some advice on recipe books that tell me how to cook standard stuff, nothing fancy, that won't take me all night, and that I can use the following day for my toddler, or freeze and serve later in the week.

DH doesn't like lots of odd stuff, and "sloppy" things like lasagnas, cottage pies etc. He gets in at 7 and we like to be eating by 8, so nothing required that takes 3 hrs to prepare as I don't have time in the day.

Can anyone help???

You cant beat Delia, my DH gets all his recipies from her on-line. Rachel Allen, have both her books and the recipes are fab. Jamie Oliver isnt bad. BBC recipes on line. Have a browse in the bookshop and pick the one you like most of the recipes in. The family circle and goodhousekeeping ones are excellent too. Cookbooks are my porn so I have masses of them grin

I find I use the internet a lot more than recipe books. Sites like and are excelent cos you can put in whatever ingredient(s) you've got, say, chicken and peppers and it comes up with loads of recipes.

And this site too of course!
