It's hard not to hear or read about nutrition, health, or fitness, since scientific research provides strong evidence, "we are what we eat".

"Dinner was the time we all sat together and enjoyed Mom's cooking, but it was also the place we discussed the day, argued, laughed and basically caught up with each other. One thing Mom and Dad taught us was that "no one" ate before the other. We always waited for each other and we all waited for Dad to sit down to start. What I remember the most was how good everything tasted. With a limited amount of money Mom created an abundance of easy, ethnic, earthy and Italian dishes. I have written this book for her and it is my hope that you will enjoy cooking her recipes as much as she loved Cooking For Her Family."
'Sumptuous simple recipes, inspired by Alex's travels and family gatherings.' Mary Berry 'Home cooking that is perfectly suited for midweek family meals or special occasions with friends. Enjoy it people!' Tom Kerridge As Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood freely admits, it's his wife Alex who is in charge of cooking in the Hollywood household. She's the one who plans, shops and cooks so they can enjoy delicious home-made food with family and friends. An accomplished self-taught cook who comes from a family of food-lovers, Alex is passionate about food but firmly believes that cooking and eating are about one thing: enjoyment. Her recipes fall into one of two categories -- quick and simple for when you don't have much time during the week, or slow and simple for a lazy weekend at home. But simple doesn't mean ordinary. With a few clever twists and drawing on influences from her travels and her family (a glamorous French grandma, a father brought up in Spain and a Norwegian great grandmother) Alex's recipes are easy, inexpensive and just a little bit different. For anyone who wants inspiration for quick mid-week meals, impromptu kitchen suppers with friends or relaxed weekend socials, My Busy Kitchen is the book for you.
I believe that most of us cook and create by being given nuggets of inspiration. We take recipes and cook from them, then we cook them again, and tweak them and add things, and then we cook them again. It was this idea of passing on favourite dishes to the next generation that inspired my first book, Recipes from my Mother for my Daughter. This book wouldn’t have come about without an email I wrote to my family and friends who are mothers. I asked them what they liked to cook and eat: what their fallbacks are, their comfort dishes, the meals they make for their families when time is short. I have tweaked, rewritten, added and played around with their ideas, and added my own family’s staples, but without their willingness to share their treasured favourites, there would be no book. In a world that is ever changing and not always a smooth ride, food is a thing that binds us. So here are those treasures, from mother to mother, with all my love and gratitude… Lisa x

In the South, a conversation among home cooks can be just about as illuminating as any culinary education. Luckily for Stacey Little, home cooks run in the family. Whether it’s fried chicken or pimento cheese, fruit salad or meatloaf, everybody’s family does it a little differently. The Southern Bite is a celebration of those traditions and recipes every Southern family is proud to own. It’s the Pecan Chicken Salad that’s mandatory for every family reunion and the hearty Goulash, so comforting after a long day. It’s the Glazed Ham that makes its way to the Easter table every year. If you’re lucky enough to hail from the South, you’ll no doubt find some familiar favorites from your own family recipe archives, along with a whole slew of surprises from Southern families a lot like yours! There’s Turnip Green Dip for your next party, Chicken Corn Chowder for those chilly fall nights, and Cornbread Salad for when you really need to make an impression. No matter what’s cooking, Little’s goal is the same: to revel in the culinary tradition all Southerners share. These are the recipes that bring us together and the meals our families will cherish for generations to come.
