Book Review & GIVEAWAY - Good-to-Go Cookbook

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED - CONGRATS B LAWSON!

The Good-to-Go Cookbook
Take-Along Food, Quick Suppers, and Satisfying Snacks for On-the-Go Families
by Kathleen Cannata Hanna

I simply had to review this cookbook, because my family has always been the definition of an On-the-Go family. Juggling my four kids schedules along with working full-time and Mike's work schedule keeping him gone in the evenings meant I NEEDED quick suppers. This book really could have helped me out when they were all home.

This delight includes more than 300 family-pleasing recipes to help you restore the homemade to dinner time. Chapters are Fast Break for Breakfast, Super Snacks, Grab and Go, The Lunch Crunch, 15-minute Dishes, 30-minute Dishes, Family Meals and One-Pot Deals, Pasta Please!, Simple Side Dishes, and Dessert on a Dime. Yummy.

It is a little disappointing that a few of her dishes are no-brainers (Chicken Pesto consists of olive oil, chicken breasts and prepared pesto; High Protein Tomato Soup is canned soup, milk and grated sharp cheddar). I do like her section on handmade marinades and rubs, and her BLT Pie sounds yummy.

Overall, I can recommend this book as a one-stop resource of snack and meal ideas and tips with a several great recipes to round it out.


I'm happy to have the publisher send out a copy of this Good-to-Go Cookbook to ONE WINNER.

Most challenging meal this week was yesterday. The kids had a dentist appointment that ended around dinner time. I had a very hungry family and a baby who was getting very tired. We ended up having poached eggs on toast and fresh fruit! Haha! I would love to win your giveaway! What a great offer!

My email is blawson at telus dot net.

Thanks!
