Fast meals to the rescue
Fast meals are a working mom’s best friend and I think we may have hit the jackpot in this book. I am lucky enough to be chosen as a cookbook ambassador for the new “100 Day’s of Real Foods: Fast and Fabulous” cookbook by Lisa Leake.
This was a thrill to me seeing as I am a huge fan of her first cookbook and have mentioned it on this blog. (See the post here.) Here first cookbook provided a ton of great recipes that use real food ingredients and are kid-friendly. My son (who would not eat anything but peanut butter and jelly) loved the mini quiche recipe from the first book . This is also the only cookbook to ever get my husband in the kitchen cooking. For me, the first cookbook has had a big influence on my entire family.
So, it goes without saying that I am excited to test run some of the recipes in the second cookbook. However, having given such high marks to the first one, I have pretty lofty expectations for “Fast and Fabulous.”
One of the things I love about the “100 Days of Real Food” website and prior book is that the ingredients are actually whole foods, not from a can or package. However, to make this type of cooking fast is quite a feat. My personal cooking style is few ingredients so I choose one of the simplest recipes from the book to test. Plus, I pretty much am dominated by a sweet tooth.
This recipe does not disappoint
It is soooo good. Since it only has a few ingredients I had the expectation it to have an good flavor but would be very one note, maybe even a little boring. Boy was I wrong! It has a velvety, rich sweetness that was addictive.
One of the things I love about this recipe, in addition to the taste, is how fast it came together. No joke, 30 seconds to cook and about a minute to put together. Really…it was that fast. Plus it tasted amazing. So amazing that my picky children actually ate it and loved it! Crazy I know. Well on to the really good part. After they went to sleep I busted out the ice cream and it took this yummy dessert to a whole new level. And no, I didn’t save any for them. I couldn’t. It was that good.
This recipe is more than just a winner! It will become a staple. It’s quick, easy and insanely delicious. Added bonus, I get to share it with you!
Since I got a sneak peek at the entire cookbook, I can confirm that this is just one of the incredible recipes found in its pages.
There are so many like Easy Fish Tacos, and White Chicken Chili, I cannot wait to try. I have no doubt you will be as excited as I am to cook up these fast and fabulous recipes.
