I love this cookbook. Yesterday I provided you with a few recipes that we are using in our weekly menu plan from this cookbook. And today I am going to tell you just how great this cookbook really is. No I am not being paid to tell you anything but I did receive my own free copy of the cookbook to review from Thomas Nelson.
This cookbook is obviously for people who are busy and want their food fast and on a frugal budget. What you don't get to see online however is all the wonderful features of this book. Not only do you get a recipe but a full nutritional information, supply list for the meal, helpful hints and suggested dishes to compliment the meal. The supply list really blew me away though because not only is it for the groceries you will be using but it tells you what dishes and tools you will need.
My son, Ethan, who is twelve really wants to be a chef. You can purchase several kids cookbooks out there and watch a twelve year old groan at the simplicity off them. Instead you could easily hand that junior wanna be chef this cookbook and get praised as a parent for not giving them another little kid cookbook. The instructions are written simplistic without being childish. The pictures in the book are beautiful but they make the dish look achievable not over the top like you need to be a gourmet chef to make this.
Would you like a tip from the book? "Spraying the top of pasta water with cooking spray keeps it from boiling over." I love those little tips. Now I have a tip for you! Enter to win this cookbook as many times as you can. I will be giving away two copies to lucky readers. Also check out the menu plan from yesterday and tomorrow I will be adding a crockpot adapted soup recipe.
