These Contain my Favourite Recipes…
It’s no secret that along with a coffee table, I love a good cookbook. True, most of them are mainly for display purposes; ones that I might use ONE day. But there are some cookbooks I love and come back to time and time again. I’m a huge fan of meal planning (both my lunches and dinners) and these cookbooks have some amazing recipes that I can bulk out or use leftovers for other meals.
I don’t show off my meal planning on social media, but I think this will change shortly. Particularly on Instagram, I’d love to share my hints and tips on how I save time and money with meal planning. I’m sure that I will be working on a YouTube video to cover it all. But for now, I thought I would start with the cookbooks I love. I hope you love them too and will find uses for them in your everyday life…
I live by this cookbook! I’m completely obsessed with this! They have some great dishes that you can bulk out and use for other meals in the week or lunches (which I do often). These are also great mid-week meals, most of these dishes you throw everything into one tin and bam it straight into the oven. Perfect for a Wednesday when you just can’t be bothered anymore. There’s also a veggie roasting tin cookbook that I can’t wait to get my hands on.
I love a Madeline Shaw cookbook. Her Ready, Steady, Glow cookbook I love, but her Year of Beautiful Eating cookbook is my favourite. It’s seasonal, so her meals are perfect for the time of year that you’re in. Her Spring and Autumn recipes are my favourites. Again, you can bulk these out and know that you’re eating healthy. If you’re wanting to get more into wellness, this is the perfect book to start with!

Now, this is a cookbook isn’t for meal planning or batch cooking But this is one of my favourite cookbooks I love. Not only is the photography gorgeous (so dream to display on my cookbook stand) but it has amazing recipes and ideas for gatherings. We used a couple of these for Christmas, they are so easy to cook and look impressive. I’m dreaming of the day when we own a house with a large entertaining space that I can do more of these recipes.
I’m obsessed with this website so when I discovered she had a cookbook, I jumped at the chance! These veggie recipes are delicious and so easy to make. Again, healthy and you can bulk them out. There are some great ones that are ideal for lunches, especially ones that don’t require extra prep or heating up.
Lee and I love Mexican food (fun fact, we had fish tacos for our wedding meal in NYC). So when this book popped up, I jumped at the chance to buy it. The recipes are so good and easy to make (even the tacos!). I also love that you can bulk out on the fillings and have them with rice or own their own as a beany salad. Much like the roast tin cookbook, these are also pretty simple and only require one pan or roasting tin.
