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.
