I picked up Lorraine Pascale‘s cookbook today, ‘Home Cooking Made Easy’ (WHSmith, £9.99). I am a huge fan of her TV-show ‘Baking Made Easy’ – I find it so therapeutic as she makes everything look so easy, perfect, and stress-free. How cooking should be (not always the case in my kitchen!)
An ex-model, Lorraine has been dubbed the new female Jamie Oliver. Although her specialty is baking, and the rest of the book might not contain the healthiest recipes, they are hearty, tasty meals – and the book has an own Vegetarian section, which is always a plus for me. Now, all I hope is that my boyfriend won’t expect me to prepare the strawberry and cream dessert above (who does that!?).
