No matter how busy I am as a work at home mom, I do my best to cook healthy, nutritious meals for my family. But on days when I am extremely busy and are short on time, that becomes a challenge.
So glad I was introduced to a new book-a-zine from Heart Magazines that’s filled with easy, speedy ideas for my family’s favorite recipes. Now I can whip up a satisfying and healthy meal even when I only got a short time in my hands!
5 Ingredients 15 Minutes is a special 116-page bookazine offering new family favorites including rotisserie chicken recipes, pasta dinners, salad entrées, fun fast food, takeout magic, and more — all from the editors of Good Housekeeping, Redbook, and Country Living. I’ve tried a couple recipes from this bookazine and it was amazing how easy and super fast I made them from start to finish! Plus, they came out really great! The bookazine looks like a thick magazine but it’s got 135 speedy recipes with less than 400 calories! Perfect now that I am watching my diet. 🙂
Plus, it also offers great tips like supermarket shopping shortcuts and pantry organization tricks to help you shave even more time off your meal-time prep! It also includes time-saving appliances and useful utensils guides, plus a comprehensive recipe index, so it’s easy to find the meal you’re looking for!
5 Ingredients 15 Minutes is now available on newsstands and on Zinio.com for only $9.99!
