What's your burning cooking question? PLUS Giveaway time for 4 Ingredients Fans!

Have you ever met someone who literally lights up the room with their vivacious energy, whose enthusiasm is almost contagious?

If you too have had the pleasure of meeting Kim McCosker, chef and author of the wildly successful 4 Ingredients franchise, you will no doubt agree that this lady is passion personified!

Kim’s appetite for enthusiasm appears only to be matched by her hunger to help those of us who who struggle with the constraints of time, money (and in my case, inability to follow complicated recipes!) by co-authoring the biggest selling self-published title in Australian history! And with over 10 4 Ingredients books now released, it is clear this woman knows her way around a kitchen pantry and cook-top.

After meeting Kim earlier this month at the Woolworths Baby & Toddler Club launch (Kim is a regular contributor there) I approached her close knit team and asked if I could help spread the 4 Ingredients love. Thankfully they were happy to do so, and excitedly, I can announce that next month I will be interviewing Kim, with the aim of answering all your need-to-know questions.

As you may also know, the 4 Ingredients Family are celebrating the birth of another book into their family fold. “One Pot, One Bowl” it is written with the aim of helping you “rediscover the wonders of simple, home cooked meals” and oh my, there are some drool worthy meals inside. No matter the season, this vast selection of recipes have been designed with the ultimate in convenience, without compromising on taste.

To celebrate, the gorgeous Kim has donated an autographed copy of her very latest culinary cookbook offering “One Pot, One Bowl” for one lucky reader to win.


To enter, please leave me a comment below telling me what it is you would like to know when I interview Kim next month? Is there a burning cooking query you have? Or are you after a suggestion to keep even the fussiest eaters nourished? Whatever it might be, please leave me a comment below and I’ll be sure to find out for you! (You can also have an extra entry if you RT the competition via Twitter - just be sure to leave an extra comment to let me know)


Note: competition is only open to Australian residents only. Please ensure you have a valid email address included to be contacted on if you have won. Entries will close at 12pm Sunday April 1, 2012.

I'd love to know if Kim has any suggestions for my daughters kinder lunches? She attends a kinder with a nut-free policy, so I'm after some healthy snack ideas please. Also, if she has any ideas for getting my daughter to eat iron-enriched foods as she isn't much of a red meat eater. Thankyou! (email is kookla123@yahoo.com)

I'm just wondering if Kim has any tips for making sandwiches easier. Sometimes I find it really hectic putting so many ingredients between the slices of bread, and I think it's my inability to follow complicated recipes. It's so confusing!

Yes, I too would love ideas for kindy lunches! There is an anaphylactic child in my son's class so he can't have anything with eggs or nuts in it. We're stuck in a rut when it comes to packing his lunch- please rescue us with some easy recipes that are safe!

I tweeted as well :)

I would LOVE to know about making lactose free desserts. I can not deal with rich cooked creams, and have been trying to create a lactose free Creme Brulee without any success!

I simply love the look of the new book! I've taken a look and used some of the other 4Ingredients books, but really wanted some pictures to go along with it! I can't wait to get my hands on this when it comes out!

I'd like to know if she has any tips for bulk cooking when you only have a small freezer? I'm so time poor!

I would love some ideas for school lunches and snacks my 6 year old is sick of sandwiches already this year.

I'd like to know Kim's must-have list for time-poor home cooking :)

I actually want to know how she manages it all, the 4 Ingredient brand as well as having kids. She seems to be everywhere and would love some time management or work/life balance tips if she has them.
