Cookbook giveaway - A Free Range Life: Winter Goodness

A Free Range Life: Winter GoodnessIn her latest cookbook, A Free Range Life: Winter Goodness, Annabel Langbein takes a lighter approach to roasts and gravy, slow-cooker meals and winter cakes and puddings. She attempts to streamline and simplify winter cooking to give it the same easy mood that we love about summer. In addition to over 130 new recipes, A Free Range Life: Winter Goodness is packed with tools, tips and tricks to take the stress and boredom out of deciding what to eat in winter.
