Anna: Good old Bill. Couldn’t get through enough of his recipes this month.
Kirstin: Too true. Apart from that chocolate cake, every one has been a winner.
Anna: Hang on, you had to change the tin sizes with all the cake recipes!
Kirstin: You’re right!
Anna: But generally this has lived up to my expectations; that being, a really good cook book for every day. Yummy, but healthy recipes.
Kirstin: You weren’t sure at the beginning though, were you?
Anna: No. It was a different layout from his usual books and different style. So I was worried that might have a knock-on effect on the recipes.
Kirstin: But it’s a top book.
Anna: It is a top book. That chocolate chip cookie recipe is going to be my standard recipe from now on.
Kirstin: What, more than your beloved Toll House recipe?
Anna: Definitely, I’m afraid to say. I have finally moved myself out of the 1970s. And I have to say the Pad see ew was so delicious that I am cooking that again this week. In fact I’ll definitely be doing all the curries and stir-fries again.
Kirstin: I took the carrot cake leftovers into work and everyone asked me for the recipe. How’s that for a success story?
Anna: Our verdict. Lovely Bill, as usual, dependable and yummy. I expect I will be cooking a lot from this book in the future and trying out all the other recipes we didn’t do this month. Thanks for the book, Bill!
