Dashing Dish by: Katie Farrell

I love a cookbook that includes delicious recipes along with photos of what the dishes look like. Dashing Dish by Katie Farrell has food that is healthy and full of flavor.  It even includes tips for developing healthy habits when you snack and during special occasions. I like that the recipes are not overly complicated. The estimated time each recipe takes is listed so I can select a quick option if I’m in a hurry or select a longer prep time on the weekend, when I have more time to spend in the kitchen.

This recipe book is divided into categories including Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Side dishes, Snacks and Desserts. Having a healthy snack section is unique in a recipe book. I’m excited about trying some of these snacks instead of relying on junk food. Additionally I like that at the end of each recipe it shows serving size and nutritional information including number of calories, grams of fat, carbohydrates, fiber, sugar, and protein.

To peak your interest, I selected an example of a days’ worth of healthy eating. Start with Cookie Dough Overnight Oatmeal for breakfast, Slow Cooker Chicken Corn Chowder for lunch, followed by a dinner with Apple Bacon Feta Turkey Sliders with a side of Zucchini Tots.  You can’t forget dessert which should be the Strawberry Pretzel Dessert. Simple, delicious, and healthy!

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
