If you’d rather clean the toilet than think about another evening meal, but find the formidable list of ingredients in most cookbooks deters you from trying anything new, Mumsnet’s latest publication might be just what you’ve been looking for.
The offerings range from staples such as soda bread and slow cooker recipes to more offbeat suggestions like 60-second cheesecake. What they all have in common are their unfussy preparation and easy-to-get-hold-of ingredients (unsurprising given that the recipes originally came from Mumsnetters).
While this might not be the first book you reach for to wow guests at a dinner party, it will certainly have the troops asking for seconds.
