One of the things at the top of many of our wish­lists is to have more time… more time to spend with fam­ily and friends, more time to cook or travel, and more time to just sit on the couch for more than a minute!

donna hay - - EDITOR’S LETTER -

I am def­i­nitely one of those peo­ple who would love tot squeeze a few ex­tra hours into the day if I could. Be­tween pack­ing lunch­boxes, the school run, head­ing to work and rush­ing to meet­ings all day – the time just seems to dis­ap­pear be­fore my eyes and din­ner can some­times be­come an af­ter-thought. Thank­fully, this year’s gor­geous Fast Is­sue is here to help! We’ve packed it with our eas­i­est recipes and kitchen cheats, in­clud­ing a few of my own lit­tle se­crets (like my new favourite way to make in­stantly sea­soned meat­balls – just re­move the cases from sausages or chorizo and roll the meat into balls!).

Our top 40 fast recipes (from page 69) are truly bril­liant – we’ve up­dated quick clas­sics with fresh flflavours to show how easy it is to cook new and ex­cit­ing recipes from scratch with fewer in­gre­di­ents. From tray bakes to no-fuss pas­tas, these recipes are your guide to start ex­per­i­ment­ing.

When it comes to sweet treats, we’re also speed­ing things up with our amaz­ing skil­let desserts (page 138). These clever pies, cakes and tarts are all made in just one pan which means they can go straight from oven to ta­ble and are per­fect to share. You have to try the salted peanut but­ter and choc-chip cook­ies that grace our cover – they’re just too good!

This is­sue re­ally proves that cook­ing doesn’t have to be stress­ful. With a few store-bought in­gre­di­ents and clever ideas up your sleeve, you can have a tasty dish

ready in min­utes, giv­ing you a lit­tle more of that oh-so-pre­cious time. And who doesn’t love ththat?!
