Every Working Mom Needs This Book...

First off I gotta say it...I am not a cook. I can hardly even cook instant meals without some disaster in the kitchen happening (the stove top fire yesterday was a little exciting)...but I want to learn and this book has really helped me.

Cooking for the Rushed - The Healthy Family

Now I hate cookbooks. They always remind me how much of a failure in the kitchen I am. The best way I make meals is to create my own. You can only make a stirfry so many ways before it gets boring so I decided to give this book a try.

Now the best part of this book is that it is totally geared towards busy moms like us. The book includes shopping lists, utensil lists you will need for each recipe and it even goes as far to tell you how long it will take you to burn off the calories from each meal.

My favourite recipe so far has to be the "Amazing Chicken Stew on Rice". The ingredients are simple (rice, cooking spray, 3 chicken breasts, lemon pepper, fresh pepper, Mrs. Dash (I substituted here for garlic powder...limited on my choices!, Worcestershire sauce, 1 onion, 3 stalks of celery - I skipped this one too...bleh, mushrooms, frozen broccoli, frozen baby carrots, cream of chicken soup and water). It was so yummy and I even had enough to take for my lunch AND to have leftovers tonight.
