In these thrifty times, many of us are having to cut back on our spending and I have come across two wonderful books to help me achieve this. The first was a Christmas present from my wish list and is filled with useful hints and tips. India Knight writes in a very friendly way and she shares some great resources. I finished reading this last week and I am determined that it is not going to sit on the bookshelf gathering dust ~ I am going to work at the areas where I feel there is room for improvement.
The second book has a terrific title. Imagine going into a bookshop and asking for this one! Gill Holcombe shares lots of her family recipes and her fish pie has rapidly become a favourite in our house. She shows that it is not necessary to spend a fortune on food and that you can still eat healthy food on a budget. In view of our escalating food bills, I am referring to this one on a regular basis.
