Aggie's Family Cookbook - Review & Giveaway

A couple of days ago I posted a recipe for Banana Bread in my 'Cooking with your Toddler'. The recipe I used was taken from the latest addition to my cookbook library, Aggie's Family Cookbook, with a few amendments.


Aggie MacKenzie is best known as being one half of Kim & Aggie from the hit TV series How Clean Is Your House and is currently a contestant on Celebrity Masterchef.

As well as recipes the book is full of menu plans and handy tips, such as what essentials to keep in your kitchen cupboards and what gadgets to have, and what to not bother with. There is of course also section in there too on how to clean your kitchen!

The hardback book is packed full of recipes divided into sections : 

Favourite Classics
Food for the Kids Mates
Food on the Run
Weekend Dinners
Fresh Air Food
Anyone for pud?
Bits and pieces that make life so much better
Make Breakfast special

The book is filled with family meals including stews, stir fry's and lovely puddings. A few of the recipes that I fancy trying out soon are 'my take on chicken twizzlers' , 'no need to rise fruity soda bread' and 'pumpkin risotto'......and possibly 'Irresistible meringues with sweet coffee & pecan cream'.
