A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to try out a new cookbook, The Mom 100 Cookbook by Katie Workman. I’m always on the lookout for new cookbooks, particularly ones with yummy recipes and mouth-watering pictures. This cookbook has all that and more.
As suggested by the title, The Mom 100 Cookbook contains 100 usable recipes that address the dilemmas that moms face every day. For example, “how do I get my kids to eat fish?” and “why are you telling me at 8:30 tonight that you need a dozen muffins for tomorrow morning?” The 100 recipes/solutions are great-tasting recipes that every mom can rely on. You can expect recipes for breakfasts, lunches on the go, potlucks, bake sales, and the usual chicken, vegetables, and easy desserts.
It’s one thing to talk about a cookbook and tell you how good it is, but it’s another to actually try it out and share a recipe from the book with you! And that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
As I was flipping through the book, I cam across a recipe for Mexican Tortilla Casserole, a.k.a Mexican Lasagna. It’s in the “Vegetarian Mains” section of the book. I’m always looking for great vegetarian dishes to serve the family. I wanted something tasty, filling, and of course, delicious. This Mexican Lasagna met all 3 requirements.
The whole family loved this recipe. But what’s not to like; melted cheese, sweet corn, and soft whole grain tortillas. I found the Lasagna very filling, which is due to the nutritious fillings like black beans, which are high in fiber and slow to digest.
As you can see, I topped my piece with a spoonful of plain Greek yogurt and some salsa. Delicious. Katie says that this Mexican Lasagna can be assembled up to a day ahead of time, covered, refrigerated and baked before serving. And if you’re not into vegetarian, you could easily add some ground beef or chicken to this recipe.
I look forward to testing out more recipes from this cookbook, such as Baked Pita Chips, Grilled Pizzas, and The Best Streusel Apple Pie. I highly recommend every mom add this cookbook to their collection! You won’t be disappointed.
