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!
