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!

Ten lucky Deal Seeking Mom readers will each win a copy of the Food Network Magazine Great Easy Meals cookbook!

I just look in the freezer and see what is available...then come up with something to make out of it!!! LOL

4 Melinda D April 28, 2011 at 1:31 pm

Depends on what is on sale that week or what I already have on hand.

5 Jen Fitzpatrick April 28, 2011 at 1:54 pm

When I'm figuring out what to have for dinner (like right now!) I basically see what our night is going to be like and grab whatever we have in the house, that I can make and that we can eat in that time frame.

I do a lot of freezer cooking, so it's whatever I've thawed out. I'd love to have some easy meal recipes for the days I don't have something ready.

Usually a comination of what I have made ahead and have in the freezer, pesto or casseroles--or if I find a good manager's special on sale--or what's on sale that week which combines with what i have coming on in the garden.

10 Heather M. April 28, 2011 at 3:30 pm

What I have influenced by what I am in the mood for, lol.

11 Stacey April 28, 2011 at 3:32 pm

I try to make a weekly menu.

22 Nicole April 28, 2011 at 4:49 pm

I usually decide last minute what to make. If it is a night I am working, I choose something quick and easy. I am trying to do some menu-planning, so that dinner time is much less stressful.

28 Eva April 28, 2011 at 5:22 pm

I don't have a specific meal plan I just check the sales each week buy what I need and just think about what I feel like eating that day.

29 Mary Jo April 28, 2011 at 5:23 pm

37 pam April 28, 2011 at 5:29 pm

I plan my meals by what is on sale and what's in my stockpile.

44 Stacy G April 28, 2011 at 5:32 pm

I plan a rough menu based upon things I already have and combine with things that are on sale. Having my own recipe binder helps a lot so that I know what my family loves, what I would like to try and easy make-do recipes.
