I Won Linda’s Cookbook ~ My Kind of Cooking!
Woo hoo!!! I won, I won!
I am thrilled to say that I won Linda’s excellent cookbook, My Kind of Cooking!!! The great thing with Linda’s cookbook is that ALL of the recipes are made with either 3-4-or 5 ingredients ~ they are hassle-free recipes. It’s a wonderful thing! She has a drawing for it every month and you must check it all out at her interesting blog, My Kind of Cooking.
See that delectable dessert on the cover of her cookbook? It’s Butterscotch-Pecan Tart. You will be drooling at all the fantastic food photos, believe me!
The recipes are easy, making it great for a no fuss home-cooked meal. Just to name a few of her recipes: On Vacation Dip (yum!), Better than Baked Potatoes (this is a must try ~ I’m wondering how it works), Cabbage Casserole with Alfredo sauce, Tam-Tam Chicken (can’t wait to try this), Southwest Crescents (black beans!) and Doughnut Sundaes (sounds sinful to me and is another one I can’t wait to try!)
You know how aggravating it is to read a recipe out of a cookbook while trying to assemble it and the page suddenly flips over? Well, that is not the case with My Kind of Cooking. Its spiral bound and lays flat for easy recipe reading!
I made her tuna salad. The mix of ingredients intrigued me and I was flat out amazed! The olives give it zing, the cottage cheese makes it creamy and the Italian dressing ties it all together. It is good, REALLY GOOD!
Here it is:
Italian Tuna Salad
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
3 teaspoons Italian dressing
2 (3 ounce) cans tuna in water, drained
¼ cup cottage cheese
8 green olives, sliced
In medium bowl, combine mayonnaise and dressing. Mix well. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well.
Makes 2 servings.
Bill looked at My Kind of Cooking also and “After Work Stroganoff” caught his attention. It’s filled with browned ground beef, cream of mushroom soup, sour cream and ketchup. It is easy ~ and fast also when you need a meal ready quickly. It smelled so good when cooking and it was delicious. Bill fell for it hook, line and sinker and so did I.
After Work Stroganoff
1 pound ground beef, browned
1 (10-3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
½ cup milk
½ cup sour cream
¼ cup ketchup
In medium saucepan, combine all ingredients. Mix well. Cook over low heat 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over noodles.
Makes 4 servings.
By the way, when you visit her blog, you will notice that Linda has a segment called “Fast Food Friday” on Passion Radio 95.7 FM every Friday between 8:15-8:30 a.m. MDT. Click on “radio” and you will hear via the internet. She has a terrific radio voice and a great sense of humor also.
My Kind of Cooking is now my “go-to” cookbook for delicious easy unique dishes.
Linda thanks again for the cookbook! I am honored to have it and will enjoy it immensely!
Now, all of you hop on over to Linda’s website and check out her cookbook!
