Spring 2011 Cookbook Guide - Top Books for Food You'll Love7:58 PM
We review quite a few cookbooks each year, but not all of them make our site. We recently just did a careful selection of a handful of "not to miss" books, and had to share them with you! There is a cooking style for everyone in this "Best of" guide:
Sounds awesome, right? We adore how most of the recipes can cook up in 20 minutes or less, and contain just a handful of local, seasonal ingredients. With this cookbook, you'll know at a glance what you're eating, and you'll feel great about your food choices. There are many kid-friendly options in this book, too, including: Turkey Black Bean Soft Tacos, Whole Wheat Pancakes, and Spinach and Chicken Sausage Pizza.
According to calorie-counter.net a Philadelphia Cheese Steak sandwich contains 900 calories. Save the calories and keep the flavor with the “Smothered Steak Sandwich” with only 330 calories in The Best of Clean Eating. We favor fresh, seasonal produce, high-quality proteins and smart flavor boosters, designed to come together in a tasty dish in less time than it takes to order a pizza.
The $5 Dinner Mom Breakfast and Lunch Cookbook, isn't just a best of her blog posts, however, it's an entire strategy for eating great with a small grocery budget.
With a focus on family-dining, the book is chock-full of lunch and breakfast options, as well as snacks to keep the little ones satisfied. Many of the recipes are homemade versions of favorite products you can buy in the store -- with an emphasis on keeping it below $5! My faves? Overnight Honey Nut Granola and Lasagna Roll Ups. Everything is tasty, relatively easy to prepare, and budget-friendly. (Perfect for Moms and Dads with an eye on their food bills.)
