30 Meals in One Day Giveaway

If you are busy like me, dinner time can be such a hassle.  How would you like to spend one day cooking for an entire month?  That is where 30 Meals in One Day comes in.  Everything you need for once a month cooking is here, all in one place.  You just spend just one day in the kitchen preparing freezer meals and stock your freezer with lots of delicious freedom at family dinner time.  It makes grocery shopping and couponing quite easy!

I know, but how are the recipes.  They are great.  There is definitely something for everyone, because there are over 150 recipes to choose from.  I love how the book lets you know what foods to put in the freezer and which ones you really shouldn’t.  You will find things like Pork Chops and Potatoes, Tuna Bow Ties, Tortilla Chicken, etc.  Those are just a few of the great recipes.  Chapter 14 is a must read for all the great shortcut tips too!  The best part of this cookbook is that you can just make these recipes to serve for dinner tonight!  Like this site, it uses ingredients you will most likely find in your home too!

Now, the book is great, but the software that also comes with it is awesome.  All the recipes in the cookbook are already loaded into the software.  Here is where the magic happens.  Not only can you make menus in the software, you can make your grocery shopping list!!!!  It will list every ingredient you need for all the recipes that you’ve chosen.  How awesome is that?  I also love that I can easily include my own recipes in the software, so it also includes those in my grocery shopping list!  You can then print out the list at your convenience.  The software is super easy to use.

Since I absolutely love this book and software, I have arranged for one lucky reader of mine to get their own Dinner is Ready cookbook and software.  Here’s what you need to do:

The Stocked Kitchen

I know a lot of you are here, because you are looking for quick and easy things to make. The Stocked Kitchen is a cookbook you have to get! Every recipe in this cookbook is made from a master list of ingredients. As long as you keep these ingredients in stock, you’ll always have something to make! The ingredients are things you keep around your house, and the recipes are fairy simple. It’s one thing to have a lot of food ingredients on hand and another to actually have a plan to use them without waste. The Stocked Kitchen solves that by streamlining ingredients so that a food item or seasoning is used in several different recipes. Something like balsamic vinegar, instead of being used once for a salad dressing, shows up in 12 recipes; garlic powder is used in 37 recipes, calamata olives in nine, pine nuts in 13, puff pastry is used in 11 recipes, etc., while still offering plenty of variety. There is everything from shrimp pineapple shish kebabs to broccoli and cheese quiches. One of our favorite recipes has to the the pb&j ice cream sandwiches!

Get The Stocked Kitchen to reduce your grocery bills, lower your stress, waste less food, and cook healthy!

Calling all Foodies: Blue Egg Photography Giveaway

What better way to show the world that you are true foodies than to write notes on your very own foodie stationary?  Blue Egg Photography has some of the best food photography out there.  The paper these cards are made with good heavy card stock.  They scream quality to you!  The pictures are so good and so realistic that my 15 month old son keeps trying to eat the cards.  I will be honest, I almost hate to use these cards, because they are so pretty.

If you want to impress your family and friends, you definitely need to get a pack of these for yourself.  You can order them one by one or just get a 12 pack of them.  The 12 pack has all 8 photos in there randomly (so you will have some repeats.  However, each pack is chosen randomly, so you won’t get the same ones each time!  This stationary also comes with the envelopes and is packaged in a clear gift box.  This is certainly perfect for any foodies out there.
