Sautéed Corn and Blueberry Salad

How many home cooks fall into the routine of making the same dishes over and over again? It’s easy to do—we know what we like, what our family will eat, we can make it by heart, and we’re busy. Why change what’s working? But, what if there’s a healthier way to serve frozen waffles, eat bananas, or use our on-autopilot-grocery-shopping ingredients in new combinations for a meal that everyone will enjoy—why not give it a try?

Cookbook Review: Scrumptious Sandwiches Salads and Snacks, Simple, healthy recipes, for school, work and home

Authors: Patricia Greenberg and Gabriella Grunfeld

For instance, do you combine corn and blueberries into a salad? If you do, I commend your creativity. If you don’t, then grab some fresh basil and make a fun, new, easy, colorful summer salad. I know I’m going to grill some extra ears of corn for this very dish. And, since you grabbed that bunch of basil, get some pineapple and mozzarella cheese so you can make the Pineapple Caprese Salad. Serve with grilled chicken or fish. Finish with Frozen Chocolate Banana Bites. For breakfast, grab an Oat Bran Scone and you’re good to go. Sound like a plan? I think so. These are must-have recipes that won’t break the budget, your waistline, or stress a busy schedule.

Scrumptious Sandwiches Salads and Snacks, Simple, healthy recipes, for school, work and home written by Patricia Greenberg and Gabriella Grunfeld is a great gift especially for new cooks (like when your kids move out on their own), moms with school-age kids, seniors, and all the rest of us who want to eat something delicious and simple to make when we’re hungry and short on time.

With this new cookbook, it will be easy to move away from those hot dogs, frozen pizza, and drive-through fast-foods to instead choose beautiful, colorful, appetizing, healthy meals with less processed foods and more fruits and veggies. You’ll save yourself and family from excess calories and dis-ease. Each recipe is accompanied by an appetizing photograph to guide you to the finish and a “Nutrition Facts” label, plus it includes essential healthy-eating guidelines in the introductory pages. It’s a little pricey but overall a win-win all the way around. I’m tempted to try every recipe—they all look not only good but easy, too.
