Good for You Everyday Meals #Giveaway

What’s for dinner, mom? Is this a question that plagues your house like it does mine? Seems like it happens everyday these days…

That is why I just love it when my friends over at Gooseberry Patch cook up another great cookbook and send it my way. Long time readers will know I have mad love for GP. And, so it comes as no surprise that their latest book, Good for You Everyday Meals has me cooking up a storm these days.

New Gooseberry Patch Cookbook

Now, let me be clear, this is not a diet book. And, thank heavens for that!

No, in my opinion Good for You Everyday Meals is a great book for real people who just want to eat good food and feel good about it. I just love that this book is filled with ideas that I can tailor to my family’s tastes and needs.

Truth be told I was surprised at the number of great recipes that would fit into our normal meal rotation without the family really noticing that I am…

Chicken Pesto tortellini

Adding veggies into a delicious chicken dish like we did with this Chicken Pesto Tortellini.

Balsamic Salad Dressing

Adding a side salad with an ah-mazing homemade dressing like we did with this Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing.

Banana Muffins flax seed

Or sneaking in some whole grains into the most requested muffins I have ever made! These Banana Nut Muffins are definitely a family favorite.

Baked Fried Chicken

My “Fried” Baked Chicken is even in there too!

This is one of my favorite recipes that Mom taught me when I was a young cook. Mom really got that getting the family to eat well was all about finding ways to make good food taste good too.


Want even more of a taste of Good for You Everyday Meals, check out Gooseberry Patch’s recipe box where they are sharing 18 recipes from this book completely free- see I told ya they were GOODe friends ;).
