Simplified Dinners Review and Giveaway

a Rafflecopter giveaway For awhile now I have been having this daily dilemma "what to make for dinner!!" Cooking has never been a favorite of mine. I don't enjoy it much at all but my family needs to eat so I do it because I have to. You don't know how many times I think of something that sounds so good that I actually get excited to make it. Then come to find out I'm missing an ingredient or two (or three). Dinnertime is kind of cutting close to run to the store with the kids in tow. So then I grumble and try to think of something else to make.

I recently had the opportunity to try "Simplified Dinners" by Mystie Winckler. This cookbook is wonderful for the uncreative cook like myslef. After purchasing some items on her "master pantry list" I began experimenting with the vast choice of recipies this book has to offer. This one is "Potato Hash" I did tweek it a little to fit my famlies taste but the idea is there. It was a hit with the family.
This is the "Brunswick Stew" and I have to say this was delish!! Mmm,mmm!! Especially because the day I chose to make it was gray and stormy. Who wouldn't want a nice hot meal like this one?

For those on a GFDF diet there is a version pf the book for that as well. Basically the same recipes but no dairy and gluten.

I look forward to trying out more of these recipies in the future. And guess what!!! You can have one too because I am giving one away as my gift to you. Please enter below:

  1. I have 4 and 5 years old children, they did not eat a healthy diet... i want to try variation for their food. and i am a awful cook. mayeb this book will help me. we are not a GFDF diet. so i think the version will be the regular one :D

    1. Ok great!! I used the recipes in the regular one too.

  2. I'm always looking for more delicious, simple & easy recipes. For me, the less the ingredient used in the recipe the better :) We're not on any diet. Thank you :)
