Fresh Food Fast Cookbook

Cooking Light Fresh Food Fast: Over 280 Incredibly Flavorful 5-Ingredient 15-Minute Recipes
Because our Superfast Suppers cookbook by Cooking Light ended up being so great, my husband ended up buying me another Cooking Light cookbook.  This one is called "Fresh Food Fast" and promises five ingredient, 15-minute recipes.  One of my prerequisites for a cookbook is that it have fast recipes with few ingredients, so hopefully this cookbook will deliver.

A lot of the recipes in my menu plan for this week are from the Fresh Food Fast cookbook.  I'm enjoying using these cookbooks a lot more than I thought I would.  They are teaching me about different ingredients, and I like the fact that they're pretty healthy.  I was concerned that I'd spend a lot of money on extra ingredients, and that hasn't been the case.  My grocery list for this week was relatively short because we already had a lot of the ingredients on hand.  Who knew?

Reviews of the new cookbook coming next week...


  1. Don't know if you will see this since you are not blogging right now - but I just wanted you to know that I read through your blog and think it is really cute.
    I am 73 years old, have raised 4 children, and have tried to keep house for over 50 years. I hate to say it but I still don't have the secret. I love to make lists and plans - have made some pretty elaborate ones - it's just following them that trips me up :)

  2. Hi there, are you still blogging? I came across your blog because I was looking for a schedule to follow for cleaning our home- I love what I've read so far! I hope you're still around:)
