“I was excited to write another book for singles and couples. And when I hit the kitchen, I created 63 NEW deliciously healthy recipes for you. Try my Chicken Pizza, Satay Beef Stir Fry, Almond Crusted Fish, Lamington Fairy Cakes and 5 Layer Parfait plus so many mouth-watering recipes that I just know you will love.

And I knew there were a few favourites from books 1-7 that I just had to convert. I’m happy to say the Macaroni Beef that once served 6 now serves 2. Plus, the Bacon Egg Potato Salad, Beef Chow Sym, Potato Meat Pie and Custard Tart all serve 2 in this new cookbook.

Enjoy every tasty mouthful of these easy-to-make recipes!”

Such tasty affordable meals using mostly ingredients I usually have in pantry. Best of all I have lost over 10 kilos even in lockdown and feel healthier than in years.”  Susan Knowles
