Save money, save time, eat well! Your complete guide to cooking and eating resourcefully and deliciously. The new annual Annabel Langbein A Free Range Life: Cheap Thrills is all about transforming simple, affordable, everyday ingredients into delicious, nutritious meals.
There’s food to cover all your day-to-day needs, from breakfasts with international flair and mains based around inexpensive mince and seasonal veges, to ideas for turning the humble apple into delicious desserts and baking, plus Annabel's signature Fridge Fixings – versatile sauces and flavourings that pull all these meals together.
Includes recipes for different occasions, whether it's making the most of a night in with a dim sum feast, enjoying a weekend away with family and friends, eating al fresco while tramping in the great outdoors or indulging in sweet treats made with a little dab of moreish maple syrup.
Eating with the seasons is one of Annabel's cornerstones for being frugal in the kitchen, as produce is cheapest when it’s most plentiful. It also tastes the best and is at its nutritional peak, so eating with the seasons is a win-win all round! Included in the annual is a handy chart detailing which fruits, veges and herbs are at their most plentiful during spring, summer, autumn and winter.
There's also tips for saving money, making the most of your pantry with smart food swaps, entertaining on a budget and minimising wastage in the kitchen. And six weeks worth of menus using recipes from the annual. Planning meals in advance is one of the best ways to save money on your food budget so these menu plans are a really valuable resource for saving money on your food bills.
