Don't Panic! Cookbook

About the book: 
Great meals for your busy family! 

We're all busy, but that doesn't mean we have to eat like we are. You don't have to settle for feeding your family commercially packaged meals full of sodium and preservatives or fat-laced fast food. Quick and healthy meals from your very own kitchen are easy with delicious recipes like: 

Southwestern Baked Cheese Dip 
Thai Chicken Wraps 
Walnut Spinach Salad 
Homestyle Mac & Cheese 
Slow Cooker Pork Chops
Oven Roasted Orange Chicken 
Grilled Flat Iron Steak Sandwiches 
Spicy Shrimp and Asparagus Stir-Fry 
Fruit Pizza 
Mexican Chocolate Mousse 
and many more 

From quick meals made on the grill or in the sauté pan to crockpot dishes that require little prep and cook while you're out for the day, the recipes in this cookbook are tasty and nutritious--and require less hands-on preparation than traditional meals. Easy appetizers and desserts; one-dish casseroles and pastas; simple soups, salads, and side dishes; and even fast breakfasts round out the selections. Meals that are freezer-friendly are marked for those who want to make ahead. 

Give your family the best--the easy way!

An easy to follow, practical cookbook that will appeal to many.  The recipes are clear and fairly simple,as are the cooking tips and suggestions in the front of the book.

With a few exceptions, most recipes included ingredients I already have on hand.  I also liked that these were recipes which could be frozen. I wish cookbooks had a photo for every recipe, but that's my personal pet peeve.

A great cookbook for people looking for go-to recipes and variations of old favorites.

Available April 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Thanks to Donna from Baker Publishing for the opportunity to review this book.  You can learn more about the Don't Panic books here.  You can purchase your own here.

  1. I'll have to check this out - I like simple recipes that use items I have on hand.

  2. This sounds wonderful! I love quick recipes and the fact that so many of these can be prepared in the crock pot make me very curious to check this one out. Great review today!
