Time for Dinner - cookbook!



I have been waiting for this day... today my mailman arrived at my door, handing me a package (okay, since I have an online business this is about an everyday occurrence) but TODAY... he had a copy of the new cookbook by Pilar Guzman, Jenny Rosenstrach, and Alanna Stang - TIME FOR DINNER!

Pilar Guzman, Jenny Rosenstrach, and Alanna Stang

I must admit, it's been awhile since I was this excited about a cookbook, but... I was right to be excited, I think it's the best! Large, clear images of each of the meals, minimal lists of ingredients, that famous section they had in Cookie Magazine (because if these names sound familiar to you, yes they were editors at Cookie!) where if you have this... then you can make this... -- I LOVED that section!! It always worked for me and I am sure it worked for lot's of people because we all have various staples and this was great for giving me new ideas on what to make with my old staples!

They call this chapter: I WANT TO USE WHAT I ALREADY HAVE - creating something from the seeming nothingness of my refrigerator... It will take you through something like - Canned Tomatoes (who doesn't have that!?) - and then they ask you if you have another of three items, for this one it says - canned tuna which = fettuccine with tuna & capers! OR chicken which = chicken cacciatore! OR shrimp = shrimp scampi with feta! What I love about this book are the wholesome cooking ideas! Ever look into your refrigerator and just STARE... this chapter will help you with that problem.

I am sure that you will be hearing from me on these recipes and I don't know about you but I DON'T own lots of cookbooks, I think Time for Dinner is easy, delicious and fun for your whole family!

so go out and get it!
buy Time for Dinner by clicking here
or visit Jenny's blog: Dinner a Love Story  by clicking here (it's terrific for inspiration on food)

(I just want to mention that it would be better to go to your local bookstore and buy a copy... support your local bookstore!!)

First, I miss Cookie magazine SO much. I can't believe Parenting is still around and not Cookie. Those smart women really had a good thing there.

Second, I ordered my copy of the cookbook yesterday and can't wait to get it.

I really hope they get together again and create a new magazine, b/c many of us feel the void. In the meantime, you can still get some great tips on Facebook/MomFilter.
