Amazing Food Hacks Book Review and #Giveaway


        As a Restaurant Manager and Foodie Blogger, I feel like I know a lot of the tricks of the trade.  Even though I enjoy spending hours in a kitchen cooking, lets be real...who has that kind of time on their hands, especially with children!  I am always struggling to find time to throw together not only a good, healthy meal, but something different than what we have each week.


        Now being an active eco-enthusiast usually means I try to utilize every resource available to me. I absolutely hate buying products (even food) if I think there is something else I have in my house which I could potentially use.  I've always been amazed at the creative things people can come up with when they put their minds to it.

        I was recently asked to review Amazing Food Hacks by Peggy Wang. The synopsis says, "MacGyver your way to a killer meal with the clever ideas, simple tricks, and lightning-fast food fixes in Amazing Food Hacks. If you don’t have time to cook, don’t like to cook, or don’t know how to turn on your oven but love to eat stuff that tastes good, you’re in the right place. Now you have 75 crazy-brilliant ways to eat awesome anytime. Boom."

        Right away we loved the hard cover which keeps it in great condition as you easily flip through.  There are few ideas which I had already heard of prior to reading this and others which I thought were absolutely awesome.  Of course we've started implementing the new ones right away.  Once you discover these kinds of cheats you will find yourself thinking why didn't I come up with that and how did I ever survive without doing that.

Available to purchase/Cost: $14.39 Amazing Food Hacks: 75 Incredibly Easy Tips, Tricks, and Recipes to Amp Up Flavor
Recommendation: I love not only how easy these recipes/tricks are to follow as well as the detailed pictures included.  This was great as you can easily flip through to find a quick trick all in one place.

  1. I love making gyozas/potstickers but it is a pain because I have to make so many! My kids could probably eat 10 each. But they taste so much better homemade.

  10. I make a sweet and sour chicken recipe that is great, but it takes FOREVER to make and is gone in minutes. I would love to make it more often but don't like how time consuming it is.

  14. I would say making a simple taco salad takes a lot of work. So much chopping and having everything in separate containers ( which then have to be washed) makes it a very crazy meal!

  18. It would most definitely have to be home made pretzels. Not actually a meal, but my world, the work and cleaning involved afterwards is rather excessive.
