Whenever I get bored with my normal menu plan, like I am now, I turn to my cookbooks. I purged them pretty heavily right before we moved so I don’t have a lot left. But I did keep a couple that I really like:
Family Feasts includes the recipe Baked Ziti Casserole that I am making on Thursday if all goes according to plan. Ostyn also has a lot of salad dressing recipes that I like and baking kit recipes – like homemade pancake mix. She has some other really good ideas for make ahead breakfasts to simplify mornings. She gives a lot of tips for ways to reduce your grocery budget that would be good for a novice.
Don’t Panic More Dinner’s in the Freezer also has some yummy recipes. This week, I’m making their stromboli recipe and the quiche recipe. I love that the recipes are put in chart form so I could easily make 3, 6, or 9 of any given recipe if I so desired. Three is my limit, but I like the format so I easily see how many ingredients to use.
I don’t advocate buying a lot of cookbooks as I think you can find most recipes for free on the internet, but a few are nice to have. These are two of my trusty favorites. Do you have a favorite cookbook? I’d love to hear your recommendations!
By the way, no one paid me anything to write this and I didn’t write it so that you would buy the cook books…however, the Amazon links are links to my affiliate account and if you did purchase them through that link, I would make a small percentage of the sale.
