Classic Recipes - Wendy Hobson



There’s work, children, parents, families, household chores, shopping, more work … the list goes on and on. Every time we invest in another labor-saving device, it seems to create a different kind of work rather than doing away with tasks altogether.

And that applies to our cooking and eating habits too. As we try to cram more and more into our diaries, food often takes a back seat. We grab a ready meal or call for a take-out far more often than is good for us.
