Which cookbook should I buy...

...my mum, for mother's day?

All she has is some really old cook and recipe book's, and I caught her looking at them last week, which resulted in me getting a mother's day gift idea.

I don't want some which has complicated dishes, just simple everyday style one's.

Thanks!

I swear by anything by The Good Housekeeping Institute, (sounds old fashioned but regulary issue new books) really good - always end up going back to them. :thumbsup:

I've got loads and the one that I've used the most is Ainsley's meals in minutes. It's about 8 years old, but the stuff in it is really nice and quick to make - lots of variety too !

Depends on what they like really, i'm old school as well so recommend books by Marguerite Patten.

Good idea but some ladies will kill rather than give up their old cookery book.

Don't say replacement - say additional cookery book.

Funny you should say that. A couple of weeks ago I wanted the perfect batter mix recipe, searched the net and all I could find was a load of beer batter rubbish or yorkshire pudding mix. Not what I was after at all so I created my own :lol:

And how did it turn out?
The pancake mix I do is the same as a yorkshire pudding mix but I add much more milk.

Well I used 'the method'. Chuck a load of ingredients together and pray :lol:

1 mug flour, 1 mug water, 2 eggs, salt&pepper.

Oh and it was most excellent, slightly less water next time though:-D

I still reckon you cant beat the BE-RO book (99p from the Co-op). Most of the recipes only have about 4 ingredients! easy peasy.

If you decide to go for the new Delia one, apparently Asda is the cheapest at £8.00
