Eat at Home Tonight might just be the ticket to making meal planning & prep easier! This cookbook contains 101 “Simple Busy-Family Recipes…” which is what appealed to me the most! The very first recipe section of the cookbook is titled “I Only Have 15 Minutes Tonight”! It is my favorite chapter and one I turn to every time I am looking for cooking inspiration.
Frankly, I have lost my cooking mojo. I don’t want to cook very often – IF at all these days. It has been discouraging for me and frustrating for my family. I have no excuse like previous summers (when we did NOT have air-conditioning) and I find myself dragging my feet to think about meal planning, let alone prepping for meals.
I hoped that reading through this cookbook would give me the inspiration to try something new. Honestly, every time I open this little book, I flip through the cookbook looking at the gorgeous pictures and find myself turning to the same pages for recipes to try. It is beautifully done, definitely geared towards busy families and includes recipes that are both simple and appealing.
Simple recipes like:
- White Garlic Chicken Flatbread
- Memphis-Style BBQ Chicken Tacos with Coleslaw
- Tacos al Pastor
- Skillet Swiss Frittata with Spinach & Tomatoes, and
- Mexican Meat Loaf
I made the Skillet Swiss Frittata with Spinach & Tomatoes (eggs from our backyard chickens and fresh tomatoes from my in-law’s) and my husband RAVED about it! Sometimes it’s hard to keep eggs on the dinner menu, but this recipe would satisfy just about everyone on my family!!!
One of the most interesting sections (which I have yet to dig into making) is the chapter “I Want to Cook For Tonight and Tomorrow” which includes recipes to cook the main dish for one night, with a recipe for leftovers the following night! I am drawn to “Garlicky Pulled Pork” which can be used for “Pulled Pork Cuban Sliders” followed by “I’ll do it Tamale”! Looks and sounds SO delicious! I haven’t done this yet, but when I can get boneless pork roast on sale, I am making it!
To top this off – for those of you who might be VERY organized – there is a “I Want to Cook for the Whole Week Tonight” section which includes 2 weeks worth of 6-in-1 Menu Plans with shopping lists! (Maybe when I get my mojo back, I’ll dare attempt this!) Basically, this cookbook gives me NO excuse not to cook a delicious meal for my family at home. Blessing or curse???
Eat at Home Tonight retails for $22.00 but right now on Amazon, it is on sale for $14.58 (as of the time of writing this post)!
I was given a copy of the newly-released cookbook, Eat at Home Tonight, by Tiffany King in exchange for my honest review. I received an advanced reader copy, which includes b&w pictures – which always makes a cookbook more useful in my opinion. FYI – The published edition contains full-color pics. I am using my Amazon affiliate links throughout this post. If you should purchase this cookbook via these links, I earn a small commission for the referral – but it doesn’t cost you anything extra at all!!!
