Easy Recipes: Easy Cook! Review with images

AdvantagesPictures with every recipe, simple to follow.

DisadvantagesFrequency of issue

"...were a pile of these BBC Easy Cook magazines, the pictures on the front encouraged me to buy it and see what it was like, as a change from the norm. >>> First impressions The title is bold, clear and easy to spot, if you were specifically looking for it. The subtitle REAL FOOD FOR BUSY PEOPLE, makes you feel that this could be a magazine worth looking at, with recipe ideas to help us all out. As we never seem to have the time to do anything ..."

BBC - Best British Cooks! Review with images

AdvantagesExcellent magazine with lots of easy to cook recipes

DisadvantagesA few calorific puds

"...browse through and spotted the BBC Easycook in Somerfields one day. I'm a fan of cookery programmes and often use the BBC website to find a recipe that I've seen cooked, so decided to fork out £2.50 for the magazine. Value for Money? ****************** Oh yes. I was amazed at how many recipes there were I would try, as I have shelves of cookery books and use only a few recipes from each of them, meaning that a recipe may cost me £3 or more! Out ..."

"The BBC Easy cook magazine is advertised as a magazine filled with 'simple, useful recipes for family meals, short cut tricks to save you time and easy meals for the kids'. I actually haven't bought the most recent issue….lie... I've never bought any issue, but I always see one lying about my dad's house, and whilst I wait for him to make dinner I read everything in site!! First of all let me say, I'm the worst cook in the world, I live on takeaways ..." Read review

Anyone For A quickie?

AdvantagesContains mouthwatering, easy to recreate recipes at an affordable price.

Disadvantages You might put on weight due to the delicious recipes.

"Looking back on my school years I can remember thinking that food Technology was going to be an easy GCSE option. I thought nothing could be simpler than chucking a few ingredients together and mixing them up to create a masterpiece. I was very naive, as my Jam Swiss roll ended up being a giant sandwich, my pizza was cremated and you could break your teeth on my scones. Fast forward ten years, and it will come as no shock to you that I stayed well ..." Read review

BBC Easy Cook: Cookery for Real People

AdvantagesFull of ideas and advice for real people

DisadvantagesNone I can think of

"...came across issue two of BBC Easy Cook Magazine by pure chance when browsing the magazine section of the supermarket. We thought it looked different to other cookery magazines so we bought it to see what it was like. The title is probably what attracted us the most, and the fact that it is a BBC magazine and they have a reputation for high quality publications. After reading our first issue (I've never seen the actual first issue, I don't think ..." Read review

Quick review of BBC Easy Cook

"Quite an expensive buy but worth the money if you are actually going to use the information in it. Up to date recipes and hints with colourful photos. Sadly we cannot all make them look like the picture !

AdvantagesEasy To Follow And Understand

DisadvantagesOnly Out Once A month

"...it. Its published by the bbc so you know its a name that you can trust.The price is reasonable also at only 2pound 20 its not going to break the bank.

Not just yet need a bit more pratice first so what you waiting for lets get cooking. ..." Read review
