Actually, I can’t take credit for it. I’m just passing it along.
Miss Mary from the incredible blog, Barefeet in the Kitchen is responsible for this awesome recipe.
It’s just one of many delicious and easy recipes in her Weeknight Dinner Cookbook. This is one cookbook I think everyone should have in their kitchens. I love it so much that I bought one for each of my kids for when they have they’re out on their own.
I know we all have crazy busy weekdays whether we’re shuttling the kids to and from wherever, things come up that we aren’t expecting or the boss wants you to work a few extra hours at the end of the day.
Cue The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook! Mary has section in the book with recipes that can be made in 15-25 minutes, 30-45, and meals that require just 5-10 minutes of prep and will cook on their own.
There’s also a side dish section, condiments and spices, and of course, stress-free desserts.
Mary is a sweetheart and I am so very fortunate to have been blessed with her friendship through this wonderful world of blogging. She makes me laugh, we act goofy together, she SO stinkin’ helpful with all things blogging AND she loves to feed me!! She is one of a kind and I love her dearly. I wouldn’t trade her for anything!
She is a very talented recipe creator and it certainly stands out in each recipe on her blog and in her cookbook. The great news, there’s another cookbook in the works as well. As I write this, Mary is in her kitchen diligently recipe testing, writing and photographing many recipes. You are going to want her new cookbook as well. Believe me.
I’ve tested some of the recipes and tasted others at her home. There are a couple in there that I CANNOT wait to share with you. Oh, my gosh, they’re SO good and I know you’ll fall in love with them as well!
