I love to cook and try new recipes. Luckily I have taught my boys to try anything, and they aren't picky eaters :) So when I was given the chance to do a review/give away for Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms by Jane Doiron - I jumped at it! After all, one woman can never have too many cookbooks!
After looking through the cookbook, I picked 3 recipes to try right away. Don't get me wrong - there are so many more that I want to make yet, but I don't have air conditioning in the house - so they will have to wait for cooler weather.
I made mini meatloaves first. This was really easy. The recipe suggests placing them in the freezer uncooked for when you need something and don't have time to make them from scratch. However, because they are perfect for sending with Luke back to College, I baked them right away. We did get to try one and it's really tasty :) Will be making this recipe again.
The 2nd recipe I tried was the Blueberry Bread. The local grocery store happened to have blueberries on sale that week, so it was the perfect recipe to try :) This is amazingly moist and yummy!!
The last recipe was for the Broccoli Salad. We all loved it, though Logan thought it needed more bacon :) Well - he's a meat and potatoes guy.
The majority of the recipes supply instructions for preparing parts of the recipe ahead of time. This is wonderful for the really busy mom. But if you are a stay-at-home mom like me, the recipes can also be made right away, which is what I did. I love this cookbook, and can't wait to try more of the recipes.
Jane has a wonderful BLOG with Recipes, and the option to purchase the cookbook as an E Book. You can also purchase the cookbook at Barnes and Noble or on Amazon.
