Our Best Bites!!

I am so excited!!! I just ordered this cookbook-

I have been following Our Best Bites blog for years now and was SO excited to hear they were publishing their very own cook book!!! 

Some exciting things about this book (taken from their blog) include:

-A Rollover Ingredient list: which gives you ideas for what to make when you buy a unique ingredient and don't use the whole thing in one recipe.

-Recipe Tags: to easily spot things like quick and easy meals, or things you can make ahead.

-Serving suggestions: references for accompanying dishes to make meal-planning easy!

Plus tons of tips and mini tutorials!! And oh their pictures.....

I am positive I will be pleased with my purchase and can't wait to have a whole bunch of new recipes to try. (They have 40 new recipes not included on their blog)

Now I will just have to figure out how to cook with a 2 year old and a newborn!!

So for now, I am just enjoying my {Perfect} little guy but will hopefully get back to doing
 "less perfect" projects here soon!!!

Until then, enjoy this amazing recipe. I couldn't get enough of it!!  I made it twice within 3 days-perfect for any nursing or non nursing mother! SOO good!!
