Win-It Wednesday: Food Network Magazine Great Easy Meals Cookbook (10 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 27, 2011 · 617 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday, with 24-hour giveaways just for you!

If you're the person who never knows what's for dinner until the very last minute, you'll love the Food Network Magazine Great Easy Meals cookbook, with 250 quick recipes to spice up your dinner from drab to fab.

I love Food Network Magazine, so I was excited to see what their latest book had to offer. As promised, it delivers lots of fast and easy recipes with additional kitchen tips from the stars sprinkled throughout. I especially love the visual recipe index in the front of the book and the Mix & Match sections at the end of each chapter that give you a customizable recipe.

I was also thrilled that they included a number of tasty side dishes. We're perfectly happy eating basic grilled chicken, pork, and burgers frequently during the warmer months if we can pair them with a variety of sides.

We paired this quinoa with some simple grilled chicken for a fast, easy, filling and tasty meal tonight! It's a variation on the Israelis Couscous with Raisins recipe. We didn't have any couscous, so I improvised -- and the resulting side was delicious!

I choose my meals based on what is in my pantry and the fridge.

3 Amanda April 28, 2011 at 9:55 am

Lately I have been giving three choices to the kids and letting them pick. I need this book, I am so out of ideas!!

4 sandra K321 April 28, 2011 at 9:55 am

The main thing that affects what's for dinner is my son's after school schedule. He has tennis practice, soccer practice, trumpet lessons, the other soccer team practice or game, etc. So depending on how long any of us are home determines whether we have leftovers or something from the freezer.

Deciding what to make for dinner is completely dependent on whether or not I made it to the store...otherwise we come up with something out of the pantry...

14 Jen April 28, 2011 at 10:25 am

I plan my meals a week ahead of time before I go grocery shopping based on what sounds good and what's on sale that week. I like to find new recipes all over the Internet to try out!

15 Dawn April 28, 2011 at 10:26 am

I decide in the morning what I am going to make for dinner. I will take meat out of the freezer and let it thaw out. When I get home, I will decide what to make with it.

16 Kim Shaver April 28, 2011 at 10:34 am

I decide what to cook based on what is available in the house. I try really hard to not make extra trips to the grocery store.

17 Kim Shaver April 28, 2011 at 10:35 am

I already follow deal seeking mom on facebook.

18 Cheryl April 28, 2011 at 10:41 am

I use whatever I have on hand for dinner.

20 Danetta April 28, 2011 at 10:43 am

On Sundays, we make a menu plan for the week. We look to see what we have on hand and plan meals for the week according to what we have. This works out great because we already know what needs to pulled out of the freezer or pantry in the morning.

21 Casey April 28, 2011 at 10:44 am

Depends on what's in the fridge, mostly vegetables with different meat rotated.

I'm a nurse who works either 3p-7p or 3p-11p so i'm usually working during the prime dinner-making hours. I've learned to look up slow cooker recipes and start them in the morning so that dinner's ready by the time I get home! Needless to say, I could really use this cookbook and I bet my husband would be ever-grateful if I won!

Every week I make a plan for the week, and each night I check my plan to see what I need to get ready for the next day!

29 Pamela April 28, 2011 at 11:08 am

I look through the cupboard and freezer to see what I can throw together.

30 Catie LeMar April 28, 2011 at 11:14 am

I look to see what I have on hand for dinner and will often use it to whip up something new and tasty. I get bored eating the same thing all the time and love improvising with different veggies, fruits, and spices as well as meats to come up with a tasty new dish.

I coupon and shop sales and that determines my meal plans.

34 Laura April 28, 2011 at 11:28 am

I usually see what I have, and almost always make food based on what I have in my freezer, fridge, cabinets. When I shop, I usually buy things on sale, use coupons. From early May through November, my mom and I go in together on a CSA (Community Sustained Agriculture) through a local organic farm, and most of my meals arebased on the awesome veggies/bread I get from the 14 Acre Farm every week. :0)

37 carol April 28, 2011 at 11:44 am

whatever I can find in the fridge/freezer, or pantry.

38 Erin April 28, 2011 at 11:53 am

I decide what to make based on what i have at home. And what tastes good. And what I can get my kid to eat.

39 Pat April 28, 2011 at 12:04 pm

I try to decide what is for dinner each night by looking at the things I have on hand and working with them to create a meal plan for the evening.

40 Laura April 28, 2011 at 12:09 pm

We have planned meals.

41 Lea April 28, 2011 at 12:09 pm

Depends what Im craving!!!

42 Andrea Watts April 28, 2011 at 12:24 pm

I decide by seeing what's in my freezer

depends on what I have at home & my mood after work. Sometimes it's quick & easy for my daughter cause I just don't want to mess with anything.

46 Becky April 28, 2011 at 12:29 pm

I have a numbered list that I put a bunch of meal names in. When I get stuck on ideas, I use a random number generator like random.org to pick a meal from the list and go with it! (or if one of the nearby numbers sounds better, I'll go with that one! it's not an exact science - it's totally up to me!)
