Each recipe is written in straightforward steps and made with ingredients that you can buy at the supermarket.
Split into 8 chapters including The More the Merrier, Dinner for 2 in a Flash, Switch to Baking Mode and Food for the Great British Outdoors, Holly has recipes to fit every family occasion.

Recipes include the Mix It Up Breakfast Muffins, Lemony Salmon Pasta with Courgettes & Peas, Tortilla Traybake and Lemon Button Biscuits.
Holly is a real mum cooking in real time and ‘normal’ mums of every variety regularly turn to her blog for advice and fail-safe recipes. Whether it is a speedy recipe for feeding little people, cooking for a hungry crowd, baking for children’s parties, or conjuring up grown-up weeknight suppers, this is a book to which you can turn no matter what aspect of family life you’re approaching that day.
