Cooking up a Storm

Well, maybe I don’t quite cook up a storm, though I have been known to create chaos in the kitchen, but this coming summer I hope to be trying out a lot more new recipes thanks to the amazing Nadiya Hussain—winner of the sixth season of the BBC’s The Great British Bake Off in 2015.

I’m not sure if I’ll be able to match her skill or master the art of using dried chillies in everything, but I’m looking to shake up our diet, a little bit, and try something new. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.

Title: Nadiya’s Family Favourites

This cookbook shows you how to create the perfect dishes to complement the moments we all love, from days out with friends to big get-togethers and lazy weekends at home, as well as simple and satisfying solutions for busy weeknights and speedy show-stoppers for impromptu guests.

    LMAO! Yeah, that about sums it up, Sophie. I’m sure me and mine are both going to put weight on this summer if I follow all the dessert and cake recipes in Nadiya’s book. But it’s all the savoury stuff I’m looking forward to trying out. Yum!
