Uncomplicated by Claire Tansey (132)

This is a wonderful book of recipes on how to make a simple meal at the end of a long day at work or home.  Many of us want to order in all the time. This takes time, money, and you have no idea what preservatives and additives go into your food. This book will help you take the stress out of home cooking and enjoy it again. No longer will you have an excuse to get take-out on your way home.

May of us have the idea that its hard to make delicious meals. But this need not be the case. It is relatively easy to make a good healthy meal in the privacy of our homes and kitchens with our family around us.

the book contains 125 easy to make recipes. The photographs are mouth-watering and will invite you to cook and eat healthy.

What struck me about this book is how putting four or five ingredients together with a few aromatics can transform and revise our attitude towards cooking. We too can muster up the self-confidence to make healthy food every time we try. Neither do we have to worry about failing. The author lays out the steps in a simple way so that even kids can follow it.

You will also learn how to make an unforgettable soup just by simmering lentils and a few spices, how to roast a chicken so that its golden and juicy each time and how to make a delicious side dish in five minutes. Neither do you need fancy dishes or tools. All you need is the bare minimum.

Claire’s book is also funny in places. She had me laughing and cooking. What a great combination.

She shows that we can all have fun in the kitchen and we can enjoy cooking as a family. This will not help us make wonderful meals together, but we will be able to connect as a family. And we need this as a society at a time when we are all spending less and less time together, just talking and hanging out.
