Bob's Your Uncle

The expression "Bob's your uncle" always implies simplicity of execution and success or satisfaction with the result. Practice the KISS principle (Keep It Simple) so you can soon say- "Bob's Your Uncle". The following links give lengthy explanations. Apparently, thieves and pickpockets were once called "bobs". The reference does not say but I think London policeman are now called "bobbies" because they used to catch "bobs".
