No Whine with Dinner Cookbook- Review/Giveaway

by Carrie with Children with 82 comments

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the head chef in this family. I make a lot of our dinners, but my husband definitely cooks better than I do. As a mom, I enjoy making meals with little to no-fuss and familiar ingredients.  I was really excited when I received a copy of the “No Whine with Dinner” cookbook by Liz Weiss, MS, RD and Janice Newell Bissex, MS, RD.  The cookbook offers 150 healthy, kid-tested recipes from the Meal Makeover Moms.

I’ve been wanting to make granola bars from scratch for awhile and when I saw the recipe for Grab-and-Go Granola Bars in the book, I knew that’s the one I wanted to try.  The recipe included oats, shredded wheat, raisins, cinnamon, chocolate chips, honey and called for walnuts – I substituted pecans since I had them on hand.  I enjoyed that it was a healthy recipe, but was also delicious! Who knew that raisins were fat and cholesterol free and naturally low in sodium. The recipe was easy to follow and I think they turned out delicious! It’s definitely a great go-to snack and one I’ll be making again.  

This cookbook offers other healthy categories such as – Lunch Box Winners, Slow Cooker Creations, Meatless Meals and Vegetables You Don’ Have to Hide.  The “No Whine with Dinner” cookbook gets an A+ on the Carrie with Children scale of approval.  It’s perfect for any mom looking to expand their dinner choices!  I think I’m going to try the Ham and Broccoli Hash Brown Casserole for dinner tonight!

ONE lucky winner will receive a signed copy of the “No Whine with Dinner” cookbook by Liz Weiss, MS, RD & Janice Newell Bissex, MS, RD. 
Mandatory entry: Check out the recipes at the Meal Makeover Moms site and tell me the dish you’d like to make for your family!
