When you think of quick & easy cookbooks in our collection, you might overlook this week's Cookbook of the Week. You also might overlook this title if you were thinking of the cookbooks with an entertaining spin in our collection.
Would you believe that Almost Homemade has BOTH?
It's true! This week's spotlight cookbook is filled with quick & easy recipes using menu helpers from the cupboard and fridge...they do all the prep for you! From breakfast to dessert and every meal in between, Almost Homemade has a recipe to save you time in the kitchen.
Let's take a look at the chapters!
But that's not all...in the back of this book, there are some bonus pages too! First up, an illustrated cooking glossary that's perfect for rookie cooks. These pages (in addition to all the shortcut recipes) make this an ideal first Gooseberry Patch book...thoughtful for new brides OR for your kitchen helper who's a little more grown-up!

Mary Wade of Hutchinson, Kansas shared this recipe with us. She recommends topping it with a dollop of sour cream, crushed tortilla chips and some chopped green onions. Sounds yummy to us!
