Notes from the Kitchen: 5 Ingredients, 15 Minutes

5 ingredients, 15 minutes

In the spirit of making cooking simpler for busy week nights (check out this week's Recipe Linky for a great crock pot meal), we were thrilled to check out the new 5 Ingredients, 15 Minutes bookazine from Hearst Magazines, featuring recipes from Good Housekeeping, Redbook and Country Living.

The 116-page book features plenty of ideas for quick weeknight meals, that balance great flavor and ease of preparation. From new twists on kid favorites like pizza, tacos and quesadillas, to simple seafood and pasta dishes, all recipes feature 5 or less ingredients and are completed and ready to serve in 15 minutes.

One chapter features ways to utilize grocery store rotisserie chicken, pear and chicken gyros or Asian chicken and mango salad for example. Another section shows how to remake a take-out item into a new and healthier meal--Asian rice salad, using takeout steamed rice and pork, or tuna panzanella, using takeout garlic bread sticks. 5 Meals, 15 Minutes even includes a few quick dessert ideas like a delicious chocolate hazelnut panini?

Our time is precious during the week where we don't always have the time to spend it in the kitchen. This quick and easy guide provides you with simple recipes for us busy mamas without skimping on quality and flavor.

5 Ingredients 15 Minutes is available at newsstands for $9.99 or digitally at Zinio.
