Christmas Gift: Get Cooking!

Slowly, but surely, I'm sharing with you some of my favorite (or shareable) gifts I got for Christmas. The Kate Spade Earrings was the first shared Xmas present, now onto the second.

I got the Best Cook Book ever. And I have a lot of cook books, so this means something! I first mentioned this cook book back here. Quick Cook is not only pretty, but has pictures, easy, but different and unique recipes, and separated by 'Foods Everyday' by meats/vegetarian and Special Occasion Foods. I flipped through this book the whole way home from Omaha to KC and whipped something up from this for my dinner with my girl friends.

I made Sweet Potato Butter Bean Stew:

My girlfriends and I had a salad at the side of this dish and wine, lots of wine. We were too busy gabbing and feasting for me to remember to take a picture of the finished product, but I promise, it actually looked like the picture! Here are the left overs...

It was really good, healthy and easy to make. I can't wait to eat the left overs for lunch tomorrow!

Try this recipe yourself, I found it here. Let me know how you liked it, I'm pretty much obsessed.

I can't wait to try the many other fun, easy and healthy recipes in this book.
