My daddy cooks recipie book £3.99 The Works

Best high chair? (We all know it's the Ikea one really but refusniks will bring us tales of Tripp-Trappery and booster seats). Have you discovered an excellent finger food snack, toothbrush, bib or more importantly A Lipstick That Really Does Stay On?

My daddy cooks recipie book £3.99 The Works

Hi,

I've not posted in a long Time, mainly because blw was so easy with L! Today I got a real bargain and had to come and share.

The works (in store & online) has the My Daddy cooks recipie book for £3.99! Now I know we could all get the recipies from his blog, but there is something about having the book.

His recipies are blw friendly, easy and lovely. I swear by his oven baked risotto, it is my go to mid week meal.

Online link (apparently only 1 in stock when I looked)

I checked amazon and it was way more expensive.

Ooo lovely, thanks for the heads up.

I don't think we have The Works in town but I will get the grandmas hunting for it.

Nope. I inspired his empire and brand by making Archie that little blue chef hat. It had nothing to do with Nick's obvious talent. Or you lot for getting me back into crafting. Or Nick's own comment about his 'Sous Chef' that finally inspired an idea for what to make Archie...

It was all ME!

And me I'm afraid...he phoned me up to ask if I thought it was a good idea & then we brainstormed brand name ideas...so me too!! And Milkymoos too I believe...team effort ;-)

Slightly embarrassed to admit I still haven't bought the book, but I'd feel a bit uncomfortable buying it for so little...would Nick still get the same royalty for it?

Glad it isn't just me. I did order one from Amazon recently, co-incidentally, finally got round to it :oops: It should arrive in the next few days...

No idea about royalties though.

I have to confess that I bought the book from The Works last week after seeing this posted on here :oops:. Sorry Nick, if you're reading this!

Maybe we should give a little bit of credit to Archie too. Just to be fair :D

We ended up buying a signed copy after we went Archie hunting in Waterstones and the Chooby insisted we buy it there and then. I wouldn't think Nick's cut is affected by the amount the shops choose to sell the book for, his dealings would be direct with the publisher.

You're right of course...so Nick is just coasting along because of you, me, MM & Archie :D *awaits Nick's bomb attack on my house* *remembers he's too busy working to arrange an attack* ;-)

Actually, I think I'll buy the book from his site if he starts doing the sets with the kids' aprons. Squish still hasn't got her own apron. Feck...don't think I've ever cooked with her :scream poor deprived second child! At least nursery bake with her!

Best add her in quickly! I'm just having my house decorated...being bombed would really set us back ;-) Although on the other side, Dad wouldn't be able to stay with me in 2 weeks!

Well can I just say, he wouldn't be anywhere if we all hadn't joined the Facebook group and spread the MDC word! :D

Didn't he start that group? Maybe he is actually an evil genius in the first throws of his world domination plot...

Yes and I DO actually think it was his plan all along! He is indeed an EBIL GENIUS! :wink:
