It was only very recently that I found out about the popular Australian blog, Cooking for Busy Mums, but I wish I had've discovered it earlier.
The blog was created by mother-of-two, Amanda Voisey, who started posting her recipes to a Facebook page, and developed a huge following. The blog followed, and in June 2016, Allen & Unwin published Amanda's Cooking for Busy Mums cookbook.
The blurb on the back of the book explains how the Facebook page evolved into a blog (which has now evolved into a book)
There are also healthy variations of classics, including Chocolate and Zucchini Muffins (p. 283), Apricot and Chia Seed Bliss Balls (p. 321) and Orange, Choc-Chip and Black Chia Seed Biscuits (p. 266).
Super-quick recipes include the 3-ingredient Cherry Cheesecake Balls (p. 236), Fantastic Fudge (p. 240) and One-Minute Chocolate Mug Cake (p. 242).
The Bits 'N' Pieces Chapter is full of handy recipes too, and lists recipes such as Food Processor Stuffing for Chicken (p. 330), Taco Seasoning (p. 331) and Hidden Vegetable Tomato Sauce (p. 332).
One of the things I loved about the book was that the recipes are really simple and most of them use ingredients that you're likely to already have in your fridge or pantry. Another thing that I found useful was the the inclusion of symbols to advise readers on how to store each meal. For example, there is a snowflake symbol for food that can be frozen, a pantry symbol for food such as biscuits which can be stored in a container in the pantry etc.
One thing I probably should mention is that the book doesn't have any illustrations, however many of the recipes (including photos) can be found on Amanda's blog.
Overall, it's a great book and highly recommended for anyone who is after quick, easy and tasty recipes.
