Annabel Karmel's Busy Mum's Cookbook

Who’s the author? Annabel Karmel is one of the UK's top parenting authors and creates recipes for all the family, from babies and toddlers to teenagers. 

What’s it about? Annabel knows what it's like to lead a busy life, so Busy Mum's Cookbook includes recipes that can be prepared in advance, be made in 20 minutes and some and some that only need 6 ingredients! It's about making family cooking fuss-free but still delicious. 

Recipes we love: Duck Stir Fry with Plum Sauce, Herb Crusted Salmon, Curried Sweetcorn Fritters, Roast Loin of Pork with Roast Potatoes and Gravy and Berry and White Choc Tart. 

Good book for: You guessed it… Busy Mums! Busy parents will love this book, full of weekday dinner inspiration and more indulgent (but still simple!) eats for the weekend. Also, Annabel's tips throughout the book will make sure you're always on the ball. 

You’ll like it if: You enjoyed Annabel's previous books or are looking for a comprehensive collection of simple family recipes. You won't be stuck for choice with the Busy Mum's Cookbook, as Annabel includes a variety of ingredients that are still all simple and easy to cook with.
