Tuesday, Tuesday…why do you go by so slowly?
Nick and I both brought some leftover mac’n’cheese from last night for lunch today, and I added some extra peas to mine for more veggies.
Quick, easy, good.
I love Real Simple, so I was extremely excited when I was contacted last week to check out and review their new cookbook.
Real Simple, Best Recipes is a collection of some of the most popular, delicious, and easy-to-make recipes from the magazine’s ten-year heritage. I was excited to learn that because I have only been reading the magazine for a few years, and now I don’t have to miss out on their best recipes over the past decade!
I love the clean pages – lots of white space and not too much going on.
The pictures are all beautiful, and I love these information pages. I like having pages like this with all of this information in one place – it makes it easier to find when I’m just looking for one tip or suggestion.
I also love hardback cookbooks – I hate when paperback cookbooks won’t stay open while I’m trying to cook, don’t you? It’s so frustrating, and then I end up getting food on the pages, too.
This book also has a bookmarker attached!
One of the things I like the most about their recipes are that they are simple but still fun and tasty and make great meals. Their “simple” isn’t opening a can of soup, but most of their recipes don’t have very many steps or ingredients – you just end up making a great meal without spending too much time or money.
I actually just received the cookbook yesterday so I haven’t had the chance to make anything yet, but I do have a good amount of recipes marked already.
I will hopefully be reviewing the actual recipes soon, but I wanted to post this today because it is on sale starting today! If you like Real Simple magazine, you’ll definitely love the cookbook.
Thank you again, Kala! I’m excited to start cooking.
