Aggie's Family Cookbook: Save time, save money

By Aggie MacKenzie

Simple suppers, cheap eats, weekend treats – whatever your family wants to eat, you’ll find it in Aggie’s Kitchen Cookbook. 100 recipes, invaluable tips on shopping and cooking, and lots of advice on how to eat well whilst saving cash on your weekly shop.

Aggie helps you to learn how to plan a week’s worth of dishes, from breakfast to lunch to dinner. She gives advice on recipes to choose for days when you’re busy and days when you have more time; when the whole family will eat together, when they won’t and when friends are likely to drop by.

There are lots of tips for saving money too, such as cooking with leftovers, clever ways to bulk out a dinner for four so that it serves six and ideas for cooking delicious dishes with cheaper ingredients. 

All the recipes are foolproof; for classic dishes such as Baked Chicken with Lemon, Beef Wellington, Beef and Mushroom Pie, Chocolate Fridge Cake and Apple Pie there are simple steps to show how it’s done. 

The book contains over 100 recipes, many with specially commissioned photographs.
