Our Cookbooks rock!
What you're saying..
I bought Cheap. Fast. Good! from Amazon a while ago and it's honestly my favorite cookbook EVER! And I own a lot of cookbooks!
The recipes are healthy enough for me and they taste good enough for my husband. I spend practically nothing on groceries anymore and always have something good to make for dinner.
I've never been able to make a weekly menu because I just don't know ahead of time what we're going to be in the mood for, but with frozen cooked meats in the freezer and your recipes, I can always come up with just the right meal.
