‘‘Home-cooked food that’’s tasty and stress-free - this is Jo’’s guide for busy parents.’’ –Jamie Oliver Oh, how Jo Pratt’’s life has changed over the last few years! Gone are the days of spending a day or two preparing for elaborate dinner parties, using ingredients she hunted down in back-street markets and fancy deli shops. That was all pre-children - now things are very different. She’’s a busy mum who has to juggle work, children and all the associated chaos. She lives in a madhouse! Bestselling author Jo has devised a cookbook full of delicious and healthy food that addresses one of the most challenging problems experienced by busy parents: finding time to cook meals for their family. The recipes are simple, easy to shop for and quick to make, with shortcuts and prepare-ahead tips. But there’’s much more to the book than this - there are also Lifesaver mini-recipes that give you staples for your freezer and store cupboard, and Leftovers mini-recipes too, to show you how to be clever and get more value out of time spent in the kitchen. There are three chapters - ‘‘Monday to Friday Survival’’, ‘‘Busy Weekends’’ and ‘‘Cling onto your Social Life’’. These chapters feature recipes for every meal and eventuality, including weekday kids’’ teatime recipes that will go down a storm, dinners that will wow your friends, and Sunday lunches to make the most of those precious moments of relaxation with your family.
