Good Bite Weeknight Meals: Delicious Made Easy features food from some of my favorite bloggers. Good Bite's motto is "delicious made easy" and they tell us that, "A well-stocked pantry (and fridge and freezer) will be your best friend" and it includes a convenient list of food staples for each of those areas. Good Bite Weeknight Meals is focused on dinner-time fare and is separated into chapters of meats, vegetarian, pasta, and more. All of the meals are quick to prepare, (like the Southwestern Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Roasted Chiles!), whether it's when everyone returns home from their busy schedules or to throw into the crockpot in the morning. The recipes frequently have tips from the bloggers that they would use when pressed for time, like how to use frozen, chopped spinach when you don't have any that is fresh. I loved the simple comfort food recipe for Southern Chicken and Dumplings from Christy Jordan of the Southern Plate, which uses soup, broth and biscuits from cans and rotisserie chicken. She also shares a slow-cooker lasagna with only five ingredients! The photographer for Good Bite Weeknight Meals, Matt Armendariz of Matt Bites, offers not only stunning photography, but several recipes, including an excellent rendition of one of my favorites, Broccoli Crunch Salad! Healthy recipes abound in Good Bite Weeknight Meals, which offer a way to replenish needed nutrients at the end of a busy day. Fast Fish Tacos, Curried Shrimp Fried Rice, Chilled Soba Noodles, and Roasted Chicken Thighs with Mango Chutney are just a few of the wholesome evening meal dishes. I echo the dedication at the start of the book thanking these talented bloggers for "leading us back into our kitchens."Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
