Recipes for Disaster by Sheryl Browne

Take two people Lisa and Adam at the beginning of their relationship, mix together with an interfering, overprotective mum. Add one extremely lively Jack Russell named Rambo, and a pet parrot called Flint.  Blend in a best friend; throw in some mayhem, madness and a misunderstanding, which leads to two hopeless cooks, Lisa and Adam doing the cooking for a fancy lunch at a golf club, bring to the boil with an extremely funny storyline that will have you laughing out loud.

This is wonderful, witty book that is very clever because it combines a romantic comedy with a cook book. Yes! You heard me right it is two books in one. Comedy and cooking combined to give you a new reading experience. The story is written around recipes--really good recipes that even I the microwave queen could have a go and make and bake. Not only do you get the fantastic recipes and story, but there are also photographs too that accompany this book which make all the perfect ingredients for serving up a five star read.
