Cookbook Giveaway & White Bean and Tuna Salad

by jerseygirl on June 29, 2012 · 38 comments

You know I love quick and easy meals. It’s not that I don’t want to be in the kitchen longer but sometimes I just don’t have the time. I am the crazy lady that cooks on vacations. For me, it’s relaxing to cook a big dinner while at a beach house. I love cooking on vacation because I can spend more time in the kitchen then I can during my daily life. And it really is fun to cook with a cocktail in your hand. But for those times, when cooking can be a hectic chore, I have the cookbook for you.

Whether you don’t have the time or really don’t love to be in the kitchen, this cookbook has plenty of 30- minute meal recipes.  What’s For Supper is a gorgeous paperback cookbook by the test kitchens of  Southern Living. Why order out or go through the drive- thru when you can make healthier dishes and save money in the same amount of time? This book is also filled with slow cooker recipes, no-cook suppers, recipes for when you’re cooking for two and meals that even picky eaters will love.

The good news is that one of my readers will win a free copy of this cookbook. All you have to do is leave a comment telling me you’d like to win. Please leave your email address if your comment is not attached to a profile or blog. There are three additional ways to get extra entries. They are:

I went through this book and decided on making the White Bean and Tuna Salad. It is a perfect summer meal that can be eaten for lunch or dinner.  It is also healthy which is always a plus for me. I am excited to try more recipes. The thermometer is supposed to go up to 100 degrees this week. Lucky for me, there is also a No- Cook Suppers chapter which I took the salad from.  I think I hear Pepper Gazpacho and Mango -Chicken Pita Sandwich calling my name too!
