New cookbook alert!!! delicious. More Please.
That's the name of the cookbook, though I wouldn't complain if my dinner guests uttered those words.
This is a recipe from delicious. More Please, a collection of '120 all-new recipes for every season'. Menus are provided for each season (autumn, winter, spring, summer), and they are accompanied by the usual gorgeous delicious styling and photography. And if you are familiar with delicious magazine, you are virtually guaranteed that the recipes will work and work well.
If I had to find a complaint about the book, it would be that some of the 'all-new' recipes are also in the current delicious magazine and have also appeared in newspapers. And for the grammar and punctuation purists out there: shouldn't it be More [comma] Please? Oh gosh, I'm turning into a crotchety school marm. Just try this recipe, it's really delicious. Off now to put my hair into a bun (with a lead pencil pushed through it).

This is a baby cos heart. Beautifully crisp.
The onion is cooked with the garlic and spices, then the meatballs are rolled into balls. Yes, I used dried breadcrumbs, and they are fine.
