Oh Dear Reader-
Do I have a treat for you! My GOODe friends at Gooseberry Patch sent me their 10th Anniversary Edition of their classic Meals in Minutes and I was so darn excited because it was on my wish list!
And, it sooo did not disappoint!
Truth be told, since my recent re-commitment to losing this weight, I was a little bummed knowing I had this review coming up.
I so love a great recipe full of all the yummy flavors that Gooseberry Patch recipes are known for, but much to my delight, I found it very easy to find recipes to fit into my diet with the help of the recipe builder at LoseIt.com.
And the flavors were totally there as expected…
The Ham and Pineapple Kabobs were A-MAZING. (Recipe Coming Soon)
I am so going to make these on a regular basis…
I also found an delicious recipe for Chicken and Bowties that I converted to Chicken and Penne (recipe coming soon) so that I could use my Smart Taste pasta.
At 383 calories per serving, this yummy healthy helping is packed with asparagus and just the right amount of Parmesan to broil up with a nice cheesy crunch. Forget Lean Cusine… this is so going in my lunch.
Puddie is in love with the Strawberry Angel Bites (recipe coming soon) that he calls a light and airy version of strawberry shortcake. For sugar-free folks, this recipe can also be easily converted to a sugar free treat.
My favorite treat so far? It has to be the Peanut Butter Power Squares. These are like a homemade protein bars, filled with fiber and a touch of yummy sweetness via the honey and dried cherries hidden inside.
Needless to say I am hooked!
Our whole menu next week is planned from this book: Guacamole Salad, Quick and Easy Veggie Soup, Basil-Asparagus Penne, Summer Raspberry Chicken… YUM!
So, enough about me… how about we let one of you give this book a whirl… GP sent me a copy for one of you too!
Gooseberry Patch sent me two copies of this cookbook. One to review and one to giveaway. Amazon links are affiliate links as always.
