In today's age, cooking at home sometimes appears to be an art form from the past generation. Many cookbooks tend to overcomplicate things and use terms that you only find - in cookbooks. New stay-at-home-Dads or Recent Home Leavers don't have the background to make sense of them, more importantly, they may not have the time. This book aims to take the reader through some basic meals using regular fresh ingredients where possible. The recipes are presented in basic everyday English with a focus on "good food quickly".
A recent stay-at-home-dad himself, the author flavours the text with descriptions of how some of these dishes made it to his table after experiencing them in various countries around the world.
After reading this book you too will have the firepower to put on a good home cooked meal in rapid time with no stress and be in a position to bask in the praise that is afforded you.

Sobre el autor

Twenty-five years is a long time. For Stuart Box, twenty five years working in large multinationals with a lot of time away from home was enough. The big silver busses of the sky lose their appeal after a while, and with two children starting at high school, it was time for change and time to start living. Now as a full time stay-at-home dad / taxi driver and part time investment twiddler, the intensity is definitely still there, but it is a different and very fulfilling intensity. Stuart’s broad life experience and his fundamental "have a go" approach to leisure activities results in a unique perspective. It is hoped, that you will find his books interesting as well as practical.

About the Author

Salads and Soups

I think that soup in particular is a lost art in many households, or if it is a regular meal, it is often from a can. Making a soup from scratch is easy. You are certain of the quality of the ingredients, and to be honest, as the notes below show you, it doesn’t take any longer.

Let’s assume you have been shopping and either have your ingredients, or a can of soup.

Home Cooked:

Peel & chop the vegetables – 3 minutes

Add water to saucepan and cook – 15 minutes

Blend with a kitchen wand – 3 minutes.

All up, 21 minutes for about 3 litres of soup....7 minutes per litre

From a Can:

Open Can and pour into saucepan – 1 minute

Fill can with water and add to saucepan – 30 seconds

Stir and warm up – 4 minutes

5 minutes 30seconds for 800mL of soup... 6.9 minutes per litre.

Give it a go, your family and budget will appreciate it.

Green Papaya Salad

It‘s fair to say that I enjoy spicy food. Two years living in the melting pot of South East Asian cuisine that is Singapore in the late nineties changed my taste in food, and I think my tastebuds forever. When I returned to Australia, for the first year or so, everything tasted bland...I needed the fire to wake my mouth up.

I can’t remember the first time I had a green papaya (or green paw paw) salad, but I do know it has become the first thing I look for on a Thai restaurant menu, and is something we have at home at least once a month. At home it’s easier to manage the level of heat in the spices. In Thailand, the dish is HOT and for more conservative palates, it is a good idea to ask for not so spicy.

Preparing this meal at home is fairly
