My Review

Being Greek, you know how much I love to cook. This fabulous book has 3 basic parts: plan, shop, and prep, to help you provide easy meals for your family. I was very impressed with the author's organization, not only providing recipes from beef, chicken, and pork but to special diets and healthy options. The slow cooker chapter is a must read and the stir-fry sauce is mighty tasty. If you're looking for corner's to cut with time-saving meals and wanting to see joy around your table once again, then this book will not disappoint. Lori's ten tips for stress-free dinners is an encouraging welcome, too. With meal planning guides, nightly theme ideas, freezer section, and shopping tips, you're on your way. My favorite part is some new chicken recipes, along with the delicious veggie section. You'll find a great free printable in the back as well.

5/5 stars. Highly recommend. I really enjoyed the book!

I was given a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
