“I had so much fun going through all my seven cookbooks picking out recipes I knew were popular. You’ll find family favourites such as Zucchini Slice, Rippa Rissoles, Shepherd’s Pie, Asian Salad and Raspberry Cheesecake – yes that’s right, a cheesecake that serves two! You’ll find so many of my tried and trusted recipes but without the family-sized quantities.

“But I couldn’t create a cookbook and not write new recipes. So, there are 21 fabulous new recipes for you to try. I’ve added my healthy low fat spin on some old-time favourites and new modern recipes. Enjoy!”

Happy cooking
