Book Review - "Don't Panic Quick, Easy, and Delicious Meals for Your Family"

Susie Martinez, Vanda Howell, & Bonnie Garcia have teamed up and complied a collection of recipes in their latest book, "Don't Panic Quick, Easy, and Delicious Meals for Your Family." I was pleasantly surprised to discover the wide variety of recipes included in this book! There are appetizers, pasta recipes, slow cooker ones, desserts, breads, breakfast - everything!

I made spaghetti the other night for supper and made the "Basic Beef Mix" recipe that is included in this book - it was just as the title says - it was quick, easy and delicious!  Something I loved about this recipe though is that when you make this you are really making four meals at once!  Using four pounds of ground beef and a handful of other ingredients, you can divide the mixture and freeze for later use!

I followed the option for spaghetti and added in tomatoes and grated Parmesan cheese in a quarter of the meat mixture and this was heaped on top of cooked spaghetti making a quick and filling meal.  Starting with the "Basic Beef Mix" I could end up with tacos, nachos, enchiladas, burritos, spaghetti or sloppy joes!

This cookbook is one that I can see being used often as it is filled with variety and the recipes are all quick and easy!
