Product Description

When Juanita Phillips stumbled on an old pressure cooker in an op shop, it changed her life. As a frantically busy working mother, she was desperate for solutions to that modern dilemma: how to juggle kids, career, housework and marriage. The pressure cooker helped her solve one of the biggest problems - preparing daily healthy meals - but that was just the beginning. She and her husband decided to transform their chaotic life in other ways too, and where it led them was surprising.

This candid confession of a failed supermum offers practical tips for anyone searching for a calmer, simpler, healthier life.

Includes :

  • The Amazing 7-Minute Risotto and other pressure cooker recipes
  • How to find more than 24 hours in a day
  • Role reversal: the pros and cons of house-husbandry
  • The guilt-free guide to cutting housework
