It´s going to be a blue Christmas for Iris Wildthyme. Her best friend, Panda, is lost in time and space, and the only festive cheer she can find is at the bottom of a glass. If that isn´t enough, this year´s number one toy is trying to kill her! From a futuristic planet-size shopping mall to the frozen wastes of the North Pole, the search for Panda leads Iris to a fiendish plot that threatens to ruin Christmas for the entire multiverse. With only a jobsworth security droid to help, Iris turns to the one man who can save the season of goodwill - Saint Nick himself. There´s just one snag: Santa Claus is a broken man.... With psychotic elves, exploding shoplifters and more tinsel than you can shake a bottle of Babycham at, this is going to be the mother of all Christmases - and you´re all invited!

Dorothy Wordsworth believed that feeding her poet brother, William, gooseberry tarts was her part to play in a literary movement. Cockney chef Rosa Lewis became a favourite of King Edward VII, who loved her signature dish of whole truffles boiled in champagne. Eleanor Roosevelt dished up Eggs Mexican - a concoction of rice, fried eggs, and bananas - in the White House. Eva Braun treated herself to champagne and cake in the bunker before killing herself, alongside Adolf Hitler. Barbara Pym´s novels overflow with enjoyment of everyday meals - of frozen fish fingers and Chablis - in midcentury England. Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown´s idea of ´having it all´ meant having almost nothing on the plate except a supersized portion of diet gelatin. In the irresistible What She Ate, Laura Shapiro examines the plates, recipe books and shopping trolleys of these six extraordinary women, casting a new light on each of their lives - revealing love and rage, desire and denial, need and pleasure. 1.

The author of the phenomenal bestselling 100 Days of Real Food series addresses the most common concern of her readers-how to cut out processed food on a tight budget-in this full-color cookbook with shopping lists and prices for each recipe. Millions of American families are discovering the dangers of eating processed food. But wholesome, fresh ingredients can seem more expensive-from buying organic grains, dairy, and produce to the issue of food waste as people learn to plan and cook in new ways. With her hugely popular 100 Days of Real Food blog and her two bestselling books, Lisa Leake has been a leader in helping everyday families move away from processed foods. She also understands the concerns of her followers who want to eat better without breaking the bank! In 100 Days of Real Food: On a Budget she shows readers how to make a variety of unprocessed dishes for $15 or less a recipe. Unlike other budget cookbooks that only calculate the cost per serving (have you ever tried to buy just ¼ cup of sour cream?), this incredibly practical book gives you the exact total cost for all the necessary ingredients for each dish, helping busy families even on the tightest budget plan the meals that will work for them. Lisa provides delicious recipes for breakfast, packed lunch, and dinner, as well as snacks and desserts, including: Cinnamon Roll Pancakes Quiche with an Easy Whole-Wheat Crust Sweet Potato and Black Bean Cakes Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins with Toasted Coconut Green Apple Slaw Chicken Burrito Bowls Cheesy Pasta and Cauliflower Bake Apple Glazed Pork Chops Sausage and Pepper Tacos Asian Chicken Lettuce Cups Oatmeal Cookie Energy Bites Pina Colada Frozen Yogurt Pops In addition to the wallet-friendly recipes, Lisa shares practical secrets for saving money in the kitchen: learning to plan ahead, getting the best deals on staple items, knowing what to make versus what to buy, growing your own herbs, and even reducing waste-which is currently twenty percent of all food purchased!
Do you want to learn how to save time and money in the kitchen and lose weight at the same time? In the past, convenience food typically meant food that was high in fat and sugar and low in nutrition. Fast food is designed to taste good – fat and sugar make food taste good, so it makes sense that these foods are loaded with it. We know that fast food and frozen dinners are bad options when it comes to keeping healthy and losing weight, but let’s be honest here: if you’re getting home late after a really tough day at the office, nuking a frozen meal or ordering takeout is a lot easier than preparing a meal from scratch. It’s clear that we need to ditch the fast food habit, but the thought of having to slave over a hot stove after a long day at the office is not appealing either. So what’s the solution? How do you save time and money and still get to eat healthy, tasty food every day? The answer is simple: Meal Prepping. By setting aside time to prepare your meals for the coming days or weeks, you can save time and effort. You can streamline the entire process of shopping for groceries and cooking and actually reduce the amount of time you need to spend in the kitchen. Meal prepping is easy and makes sense, but where do you start? How do you make the process painless? The answers to these questions - and more - can be found in this guide! We provide you with all the information you need to start you on your meal prepping journey. We explain exactly how it works and provide you with simple, great-tasting, healthy recipes to get you started. You’ll be able to rustle up something great to eat in a few short minutes, no matter how late you get home. Here Is What You Will Find… Why Meal Prep? How to Plan Your Meals How to Combat Cravings 1.
