I am not a big buyer of cookbooks. I have just a few in my kitchen, and they don’t get used too much. I usually cook things I know how to make, or follow recipes I’ve found on Pinterest.
I follow the 100 Days of Real Food blog and on Facebook. Lisa Leake, the author, has an easy to follow approach to eating real food. I followed, with great interest, all the posts about her new cookbook, 100 Days of Real Food Fast and Fabulous. It sounded like something I could get in to. If you’ve been following my blog, you know I’ve been making an effort to eat better, more fruits, veggies and real food. I’m not one to make complicated dishes with long, exotic ingredient lists. I like simple. And getting my family to eat new things is a challenge.
I decided to pre-order the book. It was delivered on Tuesday last week, the day it was released. I took the time that evening to go through and look at the recipes. So many things I want to try! Simple instructions, simple ingredients, real food. I like it! A lot!
Over the weekend, I made the Crunchy French Toast Casserole. Quick and easy! And oh so yummy! Tim didn’t try it. Adam tried and said he didn’t care for it. Lol. I thought it was delicious!
Yesterday, I made the Taco Stuffed Peppers. So easy and so delicious. Tim was at work, so he hasn’t tried it yet. Adam gave me an “eh”, a frequent response from him. I thought it was really good! Today, I got groceries and picked up a couple of things I didn’t have to make more recipes from this book. Can’t wait to try more!
So far, I’m loving this cookbook and I think it will get plenty of use in my kitchen. I’m thinking I need to get her first book, 100 Days of Real Food, as well.
Follow her blog, 100 Days of Real Food and get your hands on this cookbook. You won’t be disappointed!
