Family Dinner~Book Review & Giveaway!

 

              The Family Dinner: Great Ways to Connect with Your Kids, One Meal at a Time

This is an amazing cookbook! It not only has recipes (which you know how much I like recipes!!) but it has ways to bring your family together for meals, games to play after dinner, dinner conversation starters along with so much more!

Here’s a list of what you can find inside this book~

Why Family Dinners Matter

Ten Simple Steps (To Successful Family Dinners)

Setting The Scene

Fast Recipes

“Cook”Together At The Table

Souper Dinners

Take It Slow (Cook Today, Eat Tomorrow~or Freeze for Another Day)

Meatless Mondays

Kids In The Kitchen

Your Green Table

Read Around The Table

Grandparents And The Extended Family

Two Homes, One Table

Grace Is Gratitude

Play With Your Dessert

This is really a book you can sit down and read and enjoy and also find some great recipes for your family!

This is a great book to help make family dinners important again! If you like to read cookbooks this is a book that goes way beyond and is hard to put down!

PB091232

Here’s a recipe I tried for dessert last night, it was super quick and easy and better than my regular chocolate pudding!

Chocolate Pudding Fast

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa

3 tablespoons cornstarch

3 cups milk

4 oz good quality chocolate finely chopped

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

In a pan whisk the sugar, cocoa and cornstarch. Whisk in the cold milk. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate, vanilla and salt. Stir well.

Poor into small dishes. I like to press plastic wrap on the tops of each dish so a skin doesn’t form. Serve warm or cold. We like lots of whipped cream on top! This pudding thickens as it cools.

I have a copy of The Family Dinner to give to one lucky Songberries follower! To enter, you must be a follower, tell me why you like cookbooks, just leave me a comment telling me!

Great giveaway, I love cookbooks as I generally love to cook/bake; I even have a recipe of the month category on my blog.
This would be a wonderful book to win, thank for this chance!

I have a difficult time deciding what to make for dinner and I love to look through cookbooks to get ideas and well of course recipes.

I'm a follower! I'm a cookbook addict! I love trying new recipes - I hate making the same thing all the time & I hate boring meals, so I have lots of cookbooks - I like this one, though, in that it includes so much more than just recipes sammiejanL40 at aol dot com
