Morning baking with Jamie Olivers 5 ingredients cookbook

I adore Jamie Oliver and love the fact he’s bought this book out that is so simple, I came across the book when visiting my boyfriends mum who was cooking from a recipe in the book and snapped it up that evening. I’ve been promising for a while now that I would bake something for Ben so after a night of Asthma attacks I wanted to have a self care morning and figured it would be the best time to get baking.

Cooking and baking always reminds me of my Mum so it’s a pretty calming process for me, she was also a big old fan of Jamie Oliver. I baked two recipes from the book 5 Ingredients. 

I would really recommend this cook book to anyone that has dyslexia, I struggle following instructions and processes with my dyslexia and this book is just so simple and the food actually tastes pretty damn good. The fact that the recipes are simple means to cook a meal is pretty cheap and saving money is always a bonus. 

I decided to make the Chocolate Orange Shortbread from the sweet treats section and if I am honest this is the first recipe I have ever made that actually looks like the photos in the book. So I am really hoping Ben thinks they’re tasting. I loved drizzling all the chocolate across the top and the orange that comes through really keeps the shortbread light. It was nice to be able to take my time to just bake this morning and take some time to myself. I would really recommend this book, it has such a wonderful variety of meals through out the book.

    Oh my goodness – this looks amazing! This book popped up on my twitter timeline not too long ago, but I had forgotten all about it. Thank you for reminding me! I hope Ben enjoyed them too 🙂

    These look delicious! I totally get you on the dyslexia side of things. If I want to buy a book of some kind, it has to be written in a way I understand, or can get along with, or I lose interest.
