Can anyone recommend me a good easy to follow not too many fussy ingredients for meals? Thanks

The Jamie Oliver ones are easy to follow, with normal food that you can cook day to day. The 30 minute meals one is my favourite.

The hairy bikers books are pretty good, Jamie oliver, have a couple from m and s as well.

Great thanks, I think my brother has the Jamie Oliver 30 min. Meals one I will check and see if I can borrow it

I'm not a fan of Jamie Oliver but I bought his one about budget cooking, this is great for every day ingredients

I know it's not very fashionable to say it now but I still use my Delia cook book. I think she explains things really simply.

I also have both Jamie and Delia cookery books and use them both.
Nigel Slater also has some very easy to follow simple books - Real Food and one called Appetite which has lots of ideas for what to do with basic ingredients. So it shows how to do different things with a fish fillet, for example.
My library has copies of cook books to borrow, might be a way of trying them out before buying. Or look on the Book People website, they always have cheap deals on cook books.

Another vote for Hairy Bikers....I have one of their diet books (the yellow one) and their recipes are really easy to follow and generally ideal for the while family...rather than most cookbooks where there is only a recipe or two I like, this one had me salivating at most pages! And they're lower fat versions too!
