A Fabulous New Cookbook

by Lisa Lyford
A Fabulous New Cookbook

I caught up with a girlfriend on the weekend and as a house warming present, she gave me a copy of this awesome cookbook from Annabel Langbein -  ‘Winter Goodness’. Yum does not even begin to describe how mouth-watering the recipes are. Annabel is very practical in her approach and I love and appreciate the tips she injects throughout the book.


While the whole book is fabulous, there are three sections that win it hands down for me - 1) a weekly meal planner, including great Friday night takeaway substitutes (cheaper and much healthier for you, including fish 'n' chips and a KFC substitute), 2) slow-cooker meals that you can use the left-overs to create a different meal the following night and, the best bit, 3) ‘everything old is new again’ and by this she means the good old-fashioned family favourite puddings - lemon meringue pie (my fav), toffee date pudding with butterscotch sauce, apple pie, saucy chocolate puddings… do I need to go on!

I just love the weekly meal planner within 'Winter Goodness'

My favourite part of the book just happens to have one of my favs - Lemon Meringue Pie!


I said to my friend that I wish someone would invent a wee button for each page that you could push and voila, magically the whole dish is before you. Oh wouldn’t that be fabulous. Imagine.
