Our Best Bites GIVEAWAY


A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to meet the two ladies behind the blog at Our Best Bites. We attended their book signing and we thoroughly enjoyed it. There were like 10 samples of recipes out of their new book… and they were all delicious. Julie was especially excited to see their no-bake peanut butter bars. She loves anything no-bake! In case you missed our book review of their new cook book last month make sure to check it out.

We also did a post about how we use our favorite recipes to incorporate FOOD STORAGE into our everyday meals. Since these ladies cook up some of our favorite recipes, we used all their recipes for that post. You need to check it out!

We’ve had their new cookbook for a few weeks and have cooked up lots of the recipes in them. Here are a few of our favorites so far:
This was a yummy tostada with instructions on how to make the tortillas all cute. The dressing recipe was AMAZING. We love that they include from scratch dressing recipes all the time. These were what we served at Julie’s sister’s baby shower. They made her look cool.

This was their lemon chicken orzo soup. Julie was thrilled when she found whole wheat orzo pasta at the store and could make this super healthy recipe. The recipe called for chard, but she didn’t have any, and the grocery store didn’t have any, so she threw in some freeze dried spinach and it totally worked. There we go again – adding in food storage… haha.

Anyways, where were we? Since their cookbook is awesome, they are awesome, and our readers are awesome, we’re giving away a copy of their new book “Savoring the Seasons With Our Best Bites” !

    I first tried an “Our Best Bites” recipe I found in an LDS Living Magazine. It was for baked Chicken Taquitos. I loved the recipe so much I put it in my daughters’ (I have 4 girls), cookbook I assembled for them and I shared it with all of the ladies I exercise with. I saw the book at Costco last night and was thinking, “I’d sure love to have that book for myself!”
