Rush Hour Meals is a new cookbook by Rose Reisman jammed full of quick meals the entire family will love. Check out my review, and others by some of my blogger friends, to see why I’m LOVING this cookbook for our busy weeknights, and a chance to win your own copy!
Living in Canada, it’s basically impossible to not know who Rose Reisman is. She is a legend here, having authored 18 cookbooks over the last twenty years, all of them focusing on eating and living well. I already have a collection of them on my office shelf, but her latest, Rush Hour Meals, is quickly becoming my favourite.
I know, I keep lamenting about how busy we are right now, but with two of three kids in sports three nights a week, it is HECTIC in our house. Quick meals have become an absolute must for me, but I can’t sacrifice eating heathy either now with Bo.
Rush Hour Meals is full of 115 amazing meal ideas; mains, sides, soups, desserts, and even some all-day breakfasts. A few of my favourites so far are the loaded nachos with ground turkey, parsnip soup with prosciutto crisps (LOVE prosciutto crisps!!), and the baked chicken thighs with homemade BBQ sauce and pineapple. Making my own BBQ sauce is becoming common place with Bo’s diabetes – the store bought stuff is horrible, and with just a few small tweaks to most recipes, I can make versions at home that taste exactly the same, but won’t spike his sugar.
Hands down though, my favourite side dish in Rush Hour Meals? The Sweet Potato Skins:
OMG. Seriously – OMG. Now, full disclosure, I love sweet potatoes to begin with, but these were other worldly. I will be making these ALL THE TIME from now on, and I won’t be missing regular potato skins at all. We had them along with some pork souvlaki last night, and dipping it all in tzatziki sauce was pretty much the greatest thing ever.
Something else I loved: this was such a hands off side dish, and the center that I scooped out, I get to use with dinner tonight. So making one quick side last night, turned out to be making two in the time of one. And this cookbook is full of this kind of awesomeness!
