Jamie Oliver is My Hero

This post is definitely not one of my usual beauty posts in the slightest but is more based around another favourite subject of mine.. FOOD!

Anyone who knows me knows I lovvvvvve good food and I am not afraid of trying something new, I also thoroughly enjoy cooking and Jamie Oliver's cook books are like bibles to me!

I received the new Jamie's 15 Minute Meals book this morning and I felt I HAD to immediately post about it!  It looks bloody amazing!  Every dish looks delicious and the best part, they should only take 15 mins to make!
Now I am a little dubious about this time frame, as I have tried a good few of Jamie's 30 Minute Meals and each time I have been sweating over a hot stove for well over an hour (sometimes 2!).  But saying that I love the cheeky chap that Jamie is and his fabulous recipes so much that I don't even really care about the time it takes to cook, or the fact he is quite frankly lying!

All of the recipes are right up my street!!  Modern takes on classic dishes.. and look at those banana and chocolate toasties!! HEAVEN!

My fave part of this book is that right at the end there is a few nutritional info pages where it tells you the calories, fat content etc of each recipe.  Although I don't count every calorie going into my cake hole, I do try to eat healthier alternatives where possible and I do try to avoid foods high in saturated fats and carbs so this section is perfect for me.  I do also get a little concerned with the amount of olive oil Mr Oliver uses sometimes, surely that cannot be good for you!?

I hope you don't mind my slightly off subject post, I would love to know if any of you love to cook?!  Maybe I will post about my experiences with some of the recipes I try out from this book!

  1. I LOVE Jamie Oliver! I'm so glad he's back on my tv everyday at 5! I have both the 30 & 15 minute meals books too and they do often take me longer, but I just count that to me being a slowpoke and very unorganized :P
    Also, I think olive oil is pretty good for you (if it's good quality), especially for your hair and nails! :)

    1. Such a ledge isn't he! Very true.. I never tend to be organised like he wants you to be.. plus I usually have to keep re-reading the recipes!! Whats your fave recipe from this book?
      If olive oil is good then I will start lathering it on ;-) xx


I read all your lovely comments and will always try to reply!!
I am happy for you to leave your blog address for me to check out and follow you back!! xoxo
