Menu Plan Monday ~ Feb 14th + giveaway!!
Update: Giveaway now closed.
Happy Monday everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day as well! In our house we have a family tradition of having heart shaped waffles on Valentine’s Day. My heart shaped waffle maker is on it’s last legs but I still drag it out for this special occasion :) Aren’t they cute?! Ahhh!
This time though I’m going to try yet another new waffle recipe because I just can’t help myself! How does healthy Banana Brownie Waffles sound? Yum, I can hardly wait! I’ll let you know how they turn out next week. Also depending on my time I’d love to whip up a batch of these mini Berry Good Chocolate Cupcakes for dessert.
Both of these recipes come from the talented duo, Liz Weiss and Janice Newell Bissex, over at Meal Makeover Moms. They have a wonderful new cookbook out called No Whine With Dinner that I’m so super excited to tell you about.
Over the last couple of years I’ve tried a number of their recipes from their website and have loved every one including Teriyaki Salmon in Foil and Have-It-Your-Way Tacos. So I was thrilled when they sent me a copy of their new cookbook to try out. It includes 150 healthy, kid-tested recipes! They enlisted kids from all around the world to help them test each and every recipe. In fact my daughter and I even got in on the fun and provided them with our opinions on the Ginger Drizzle Cookies recipe (pg 181), which we loved by the way!
This awesome cookbook is full of easy to prepare recipes that are not only quick to put on the table for busy families on the go but healthy too! This is one cookbook I don’t hesitate to highly recommend! Check out their site, Meal Makeover Moms, for more information and recipes and to watch some cooking videos too.
Janice and Liz have also given me a copy of their book to giveaway here today as well! If you are interested please leave a comment on this post prior to Saturday, Feb 19th at 3:00 pm PST. Winner selected at random from comments received. This giveaway is now closed. The winner is: #154 Lori!!
