e-book Giveaway: Good and Easy Eats
Good and Easy Eats, an e-book by Kim Wilson, is a collection of simple, family pleasing recipes that are actually good for you. I chose a few recipes to try this week: Potato Corn Chowder, Seasoned Popcorn, Carmel Corn, Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Meltaways, and Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies. I also followed her instruction on how to cook beans from dry to put in my chili. It's true, I've never cooked beans before. I never even liked beans until this year, so I needed instructions on how to cook them.
The Seasoned Popcorn was delicious. That one will be a favorite for Friday movie nights at our house. The best recipe I tried was the Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. I didn't think it was possible to make a cookies without sugar or eggs and have them turn out good. I hesitated to try them because I didn't want to waste my honey on a batch I'd be throwing away, but they were delicious! I'll make them again and again.
Good and Easy Eats is not just a recipe book. It is filled with helpful information on stocking a basic pantry, menu planning, making the transition to wholesome foods, how to decide what to buy organic, baking tips, salad making tips, how to cook beans from dry and other useful information. There are also links throughout the book for more ideas and recipes. For those of you who avoid wheat, all of Kim's recipes are gluten free, but she gives you an alternative if you don't have gluten issues.
