When it comes to mealtime, I need help!
And so when I heard about Robin Miller’s new book, Robin Rescues Dinner, I hollered, “Yes, Robin! I need you to rescue dinner at my house!”
I received Robin Rescues Dinner and had a chance to interview Robin for a podcast. (Click on the arrow on the podcast button below to listen to our interview.)
Chatting with Robin and reading her book inspired me to break out of the recipe ruts I am in with my family. I am so busy and I have so little time and energy for meal preparation.
But as a busy mom of two young boys, Food Network Host, Robin Miller, understands the need for quick meals! It is life as a busy working mother that inspires her to create easy to prepare meals for families.
And because she recognizes that sometimes moms need shortcuts, Robin teamed up with Tyson Foods to promote their ready to eat Tyson Grilled Chicken and Steak Strips. With these lean, preservative free, recipe-ready products, we can add protein easily to dinner and lunches. And with Robin’s creative, quick recipes, we can keep our family interested with all sorts of new recipes. Robin has over 350 recipes in Robin Rescues Dinner.
If you want to hear Robin’s tips for rescuing meals – including some great brown bag lunch tips! – listen to my podcast below with Robin, enjoy the recipes I have included below, and pick up Robin’s book, Robin Rescues Dinner.
