Cooking for the family takes up a big chunk of my time. Some days I am hardworking and cook dishes that require a bit more effort and some days I just opt for simple stuff. Deciding what to cook can be quite a headache. Most of the time, what ends up on the table depends on my mood.
I was recently given the chance by Chef Jeff to have a look at his new cookbook called Dinnerevolution. All I can say is "WOW". It has at your fingertips over 200 recipes... all healthy and tasty. If you're a busy mom who don't want to spend too much time in the kitchen, than this cookbook can help you. His recipes all require less than 10 ingredients and you'll only need about 30 minutes to prepare each dish.
Want recipe examples? Chef Jeff said I could share one with you. So, here's from a page of his cookbook that I thought you might like.
CITRUS BASIL CHICKEN
The citrus cooked down with the onions creates a great tasting topping for the chicken breast.
Cook time: 25 minutes
1 pound Chicken Breast
1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil
2 cups Orange juice
2 sliced Onions
1 tablespoon All Purpose Seasoning, no salt
1 tablespoon cumin
1/4 cup chopped Basil Leaves
Heat skillet over medium heat and brown the chicken on both sides in the olive oil. Stir in the onions, orange juice, cumin, and seasoning. Cover, and cook for 8 minutes or so until the chicken is cooked through. Squeeze the lime over, and remove the chicken to a plate. Bring heat to high, and cook down the onion mixture until thickened. Add the basil and chicken back to the skillet to coat.

Since I'm Asian, I cooked mostly Asian types food. So I was happy to see quite a number of recipes with "oyster sauce" as part of the ingredient. I used that a lot in my cooking. So, if you're Asian, like me, this cookbook has recipes for you. I was quite impressed with that. Not many cookbooks written by a caucasian guy includes recipes I'm comfortable trying.
