Make-Ahead Meals For Busy Moms Cookbook Review & {GIVEAWAY!!}

If you are anything like me, the last thing I want to do after a long day of changing diapers, cleaning house, and doing the laundry is to cook dinner. At the end of the day, I would rather cuddle up with my husband and play with our sweet little boy. With that said, my family does enjoy a home cooked meal and I feel great when the food I make is enjoyed. Jane Doiron, author or Make-Ahead Meals For Busy Moms, has made it possible for all moms to be that "super mom" they want to be.

Italian Restaurant Chicken
Italian Cookies
Chicken Cannelloni
Mini Cheesecakes
Stuffed Mushrooms
Bruschetta
