Southern Living What’s for Supper
What’s for supper probably ranks up there on my top ten list of what I don’t want to have someone ask me. Most days, I look up at the clock and cannot believe that it is super time already. I have no idea where the time has gone but all of a sudden I am rushing around trying to get dinner done before 7pm. Everyone gets a little bit cranky when dinner is that late in the day. What I really need is a cookbook with quick recipes that save me from having to haul out frozen pizzas or head out for fast food when I’m pressed for time.
Southern Living What’s for Supper – 30 minute meals that everyone will love is just that cookbook! In the time it would take me to head out and buy fast food, I can now create a delicious, healthy meal at home instead. This cookbook contains a variety of recipes that you can create from start to finish in 30 minutes or less. There are more than 250 recipes included for main dishes including recipes made with pantry staples, quick favorites that taste better than fast food, no-cook suppers, slow cooker meals, kid friendly recipes, downsized dishes for two, and special recipes for weeknight company.
I was very please to see that most of the recipes included start with quite a few fresh ingredients. In some time saving cookbooks, most of the recipes end up being a box of this and a can of that. While there are some pre-made ingredients included in Southern Living What’s for Supper, most are fresh. Each recipe includes a color photograph of the finished dish and there are also photographs throughout of ingredients and side dishes that might go along with the main dish. The recipes are very easy to follow and contain ingredients list and detailed instructions. There are also time saving tips and suggestions for substitutions or side dishes for many of the recipes. I really love that they have suggestions for side dishes. That is one less step I have to worry about when I’m planning dinner.
There’s really a great selection of recipes included in this cookbook. I love that there are no cook meals for hot summer days as well as hearty meals for winter. There are meals that will work for those on a gluten free diet (although they aren’t marked that way) and meals that would work for those that are vegetarians. We tried the Easy Skillet Cordon Bleu and it was amazing! I love chicken cordon bleu but it is so much work that I never make it. This is just as good and much quicker! If you need to shave off some time in the kitchen and still want to feed your family healthy meals, you need Southern Living What’s for Supper.
