Eggs, cakes, tarts, slices, mousse, cookies and biscuits… for many of us this Easter weekend is filled with tasty chocolate treats in one or more varieties. If, after all this indulging, you need a bit of help to get back on the ‘clean eating’ track you are going to love this amazing new cook book from the skilful hands of the clever Hemsley sisters:
Good + Simple (RRP $55) is an absolutely stunning cookbook that’s choc-a-block with delicious, healthy, nutritious recipes for the whole family. As you know I recently acquired a new food processor so I am terribly excited to try all these yummy foods, with a huge 140 different recipes to choose from there is no shortage of inspiration.
As food writers for Vogue sisters Jasmine and Melissa Hemsley are true masters in the kitchen. They specialise in homemade, wholesome and sustainable food that is big in flavour yet small in effort, just the way I like it. If, like me, you are a busy mum who has little time to cook difficult dishes but you do want to feed your family clean, healthy food Good + Simple is a must-have for your kitchen (and an excellent Mother’s Day gift idea).
Who doesn’t like the sound of cinnamon, raisin and quinoa muffins and 3-ways chestnut pancakes for breakfast or spinach and bacon tart with a nutty almond crust and Chinese style beef and broccoli for dinner. Or how about caulironi cheese, spiced winter apple chutney or DIY noodle pot? I cannot wait to try them all out for myself.
Don’t worry, there are plenty of sweet treats included too. Last night we satisfied our sweet tooth by whipping up these scrumptious chocolate drizzle coconut macaroons, all it took was 10 minutes and just 6 ingredients. Move over Easter eggs, the Hemsley sisters are here with Good + Simple!
