Taste of Home Cooking School Cookbook: 400+ Simple to Spectacular Recipes

August 15

I’ll admit it.  I’m not much of a cook.  My hubby does more in the kitchen than I do.  I am very appreciative of his efforts.  However, I’d like to make more meals for my worthy husband, but I don’t seem to find any recipes that fit our taste.

Looking through Taste of Home: Cooking School Cookbook: 400 + Simple to Spectacular Recipes I have found several recipes that hubby and I would enjoy.   I wanted to make a few of the recipes and share my opinion of them, but being pregnant has wiped all energy from this girl!

Since I am beginning to feel a spark of energy, I want to treat my hubby to a meal every weekend and I’m looking forward to giving the following a try:

  • Baked Potato Soup
  • Chicken Fajita Pizza
  • Layered Tortilla Pie
  • Chicken Cordon Blue
  • Easy Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie

Maybe I’ll have an opinion of the above recipes in the near future for you…

What’s even more appealing are the easy-to-understand instructions throughout the book.   There is even a page with pictures describing what each knife is used for.  Maybe I’ll grab the right one from now on!

Tell me:  Which recipe sounds most appealing to you?
