There are over 60 recipes, from the hearty (roasted pork sausage with mustard and red onion gravy) to the sophisticated (Seville orange chicken with a simple pilaff of coriander rice). There are soups, snacks and sweets, including grilled sugar cinnamon muffins with hot apple wedges. The volume includes colour photographs of the dishes and of Jenny in and around her County Antrim home.

This is a collection of recipes that are readily achievable for the beginner cook but also provide inspiration for those who are more advanced.

The Seville Orange Chicken with a Pilaf of Coriander and Rice is an easily prepared and unusual dinner party dish. Little fuss with maximum results the perfect combination! While many of the cookbooks on the market today provide great inspiration for entertaining, the real strength of this book is that Bristow has included recipes that we can use every day. Describing them as recipes for the way we live now, her easy-to-follow recipe for an Italian sausage sandwich, served on a layer of lightly toasted ciabatta bread and garnished with fresh basil, is mouthwatering, while the crusty bread with roasted salmon flakes and a generous dollop of basil mayonnaise is also hugely successful. Both recipes provide the perfect inspiration for weekend lunches - no difficult ingredients to find, great photography to get the mouth watering and simple, easy-to-follow recipes. Cooks with a sweet tooth will also find some simple, yet delicious recipes to get them excited. Jennys Toffee Apple Cake Bramley apples gently poached in a combination of butter, sugar and orange, then smothered in a light all-in-one sponge mixture - will become a family favourite and the Sunken Raspberry and Chocolate cake with its dark, chewy texture makes the perfect dessert or afternoon tea. With its selection of interesting new ideas in a simple-to-follow format, this is the perfect book to add to your cookery collection. (Kirkus UK)
