America’s Favorite Food

America’s Favorite Food is revolutionizing the kitchen by being the first to bridge our love for the printed cookbook with the wonders of technology. Organized in 10 easy-to-navigate categories such as ‘Starters,’ ‘Seafood,’ ‘Meatless Mains’ and ‘Desserts,’ the cookbook features a collection of the website’s 200 top-rated and most-reviewed recipes, each selected based on actual reviews and rankings by the more than 6 million home cooks who use MyRecipes.com each month.

Its unique, never-before-seen Scan-It/Cook-It™ features let readers access helpful recipe-enhancing multimedia content on their mobile or tablet device without ever leaving the kitchen. Simply scan one of the book’s more than 130 vibrant, full-color recipe photographs with the free Digimarc Discover app to instantly view how-to videos, professional cooking tips, meal planners and more. To the delight of many, this means no more food burned on the stove while Googling how to julienne carrots.

Other user-friendly features of “America’s Favorite Food” include quick access icons for each recipe which identify recipes as ‘Kid Friendly,’ ‘Gluten Free,’ and ‘30 Minutes or Less,’ among others; reviews and advice from MyRecipes.com users on the best substitutions and suggestions for specific dishes; and quick tips from MyRecipes editors that outline how to enhance a dish and tips for finding special ingredients at your local market, plus much more.

I love this cookbook.  Not only does it have “normal” food that you would serve, it has normal ingredients.  I love the substitution advice each recipe has too.  These are tried and true suggestions from people on the MyRecipes site.  I also love that you don’t have to use the Scan It feature, and the cookbook still rocks.  I love that ever recipe has a picture too.  I like knowing what my meal is suppose to look like (because sometimes it doesn’t look like its suppose to!).

America’s Favorite Food is full of yummy recipes you’ll want to try.  The hardest thing will be to figure out what to make first!

SOYJOY

As a person who is lactose intolerant, I’ve always got my eye out for soy products. However, soy has a of great nutritional value for the rest of you: rich in protein, fiber, antioxidants, and B vitamins. Keeping that in mind, SOYJOY is a fruit bar that is made with natural, minimally processed ingredients, such as ground whole soybeans and real fruit, and contain no trans fat or hydrogenated oils. They are launching their new and improved bars this month with a lighter, moister texture and naturally enhanced fruit flavor. They have also added two new flavors too. Banana and blueberry have a taste and aroma reminiscent of freshly baked banana nut or blueberry muffins. However, I do have to admit that I am still a fan of the strawberry ones. Strawberries happen to be my favorite food, so it is a tad hard to beat that out.

SOYJOY is also holding a great contest called “Second Chances”.  Visitors to their Facebook page can enter to win one of three $1,000 prizes by briefly telling their own personal story about a time they did not make the best first impression but, with a second chance, turned it into a joyous ending.  How cool is that?

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of SOYJOY and received samples of their nutritional bars to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central also sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
