If you have been following me on Instagram stories you will know that I love to do mini episodes of 'cooking with Jayne' where I show you what I am whipping up for dinner! I love to cook but I am also super lazy with it. I like recipes to be quick and easy to follow so that I avoid a bad case of hanger and let's face it no one wants to see that! So today I thought I would share with you three of my favourite cookbooks that I use in the kitchen on a regular basis. I'm not great at creating my own recipes (they always end up tasting a bit odd, too much lemon juice anyone? This is what happens when I don't follow a recipe!) so I like to stick to tried and tested cookbooks.
My 3 Favourite Cookbooks
The Oh She Glows Cookbook - This is my holy grail of cookbooks. I must make a recipe from here at least once a week, it's that good. The recipes are simple, easy to follow and super tasty, which is the most important thing! It is a vegan cookbook so if you are looking to bring more plant based meals into your life this is a great book to pick up.

Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking - This is a more recent addition to my cookbook collection and the one I have using a lot in the past couple of weeks. Some recipes are a little bit more complicated than others but so far every recipe I have tried has turned out well! I highly recommend the butternut squash mac and cheese which is a lighter version of my favourite comfort food. I often end up subbing out things as I'm not vegan I will use cheese rather than vegan cheese so don't be scared to sub out ingredients for what you have in the cupboard! I also like that this book has lots of not so healthy baking recipes which are fab to make as a treat or when you have guests round.
Deliciously Ella Every Day - There is a veggie chilli recipe in Deliciously Ella's first book which is my go to quick, simple, wholesome, warming meal and if you have checked out that recipe yet - do it! I like the layout of her second book a lot better than the first, it's easier to find your way round breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's a fab book for using simple ingredients which don't cost the earth and has everything from smoothie recipes to big batch cooking recipes.
