The Food Nanny Rescues Dinner!

Have you heard of Liz Edmunds, The Food Nanny?  Well, she is my new best friend.  Sorry, Ash, Mom, Hubby or anyone else who thought they were my best friend.  ;)

Not only is The Food Nanny giving away her wonderful cookbook to a lucky Crafty Cousins reader, but she has made me a rock star in my kitchen!  Seriously.  Her recipes are so practical and real-life, but delicious at the same time.  I love that her cookbook makes meal planning easy with theme nights.

I even won our town’s Christmas soup cook off with her Pepper Jack Potato Soup recipe.  It is so so yummy! 


There it is!  :)  Sorry about the picture quality.  It was taken with my phone.

Do you want to know how I became besties with The Food Nanny?  I mean Liz?  Last winter the hubs and I got tickets to one of her cooking classes.  I got her cookbook and instantly fell in love with it!

See?!  She loves me!  :) 

Anyway, a few of our favorite recipes in her book are:

  • Macaroni and Cheese Kids Crave
  • Three Bean Chili with Sausage
  • Biscuits & Sausage Country Gravy
  • Buttermilk Waffles
  • Quick & Easy Egg Suppers
  • Pepper Jack Potato Soup

…and many more.  We tried Clam Linguine this week.  I was skeptical because I’ve got picky eaters.  Guess what?!  It was a HUGE hit!  All of my boys cleared their plates and had seconds!  Thank you, Best Friend Food Nanny!  :)

Her website even has a Nanny Plan to help you plan out your meals!
