    I really love “Apples for Jam”, its style and photography are eyecatching and pretty – the perfect book to cuddle up with on your sofa. Yet I haven’t been blown away by its recipes so far, the last one I tried was her banana bread, which turned out rather bland in taste 🙁

  4. That’s strange – Banana Bread is normally anything but bland. I’m a big fan of her Granola and the Rice and Vegetable Pilaf in the Red section is also good. I wasn’t too impressed with the Chocolate and Cranberry Biscuits, although that could have been the fault of me and the amazingly varied chocolate selection that went into them. The Berry and Buttermilk Cake, altered for some scrumptious plums, proved a keeper though. Those recipes (apart from the Granola) are all from the Red chapter – I think I’ll have to investigate some other colours in future!
