When I first got married I could make spaghetti, boxed macaroni and cheese, and chocolate chip cookies. Obviously my cooking is why Kyle married me 😉 Luckily for him (and me, and our kids!), I have quite a few more recipes under my belt these days, and cooking is something I semi-enjoy. (Semi being the key word.) But cooking dinner is still one of those things that I dread sometimes. Mostly because right now I have two littles under my feet the whole time I’m trying to put dinner together! That’s why I was interested in reviewing The Make-Ahead Kitchen. All the meals in this books are meals that are supposed to be prepared ahead of time, making the actual dinnertime quick and easy. Something that sounds great to me!
To be honest, I was a little disappointed with the recipes. These recipes were just a little fancier than I anticipated that they’d be. Which is probably great and perfect for some people, but I’m a girl of simple tastes, so when there are things like quinoa and blue cheese I’m not so sure those are the recipes for me. There are also quite a few ingredients in most of the recipes, which turns me off of them, ha.
But some of them do look good and I’m excited to try them out when I have a weekend to prep them! Which means…. In the fall. And also, the beautiful photography! Goals, my friends, goals.
If fancier-ish recipes are your thing, or beautiful food photography, you should check this cook book out. And then let me know what you think.
You can find all the other blogs on the blog tour here, so go see what they have to say about The Make-Ahead Kitchen.
I received free product from Cedar Fort in exchange for an honest review.
