Dinner Made Simple Cookbook

This post is part of a social shopper marketing campaign with participating title but all my opinions are my own.

Pan-Fried Chicken Cutlets with Zucchini Salad from Dinner Made Simple Cookbook

I have a weakness for a few things…chocolate, anything with polka dots, and cookbooks.   I love having a kitchen cupboard full of cookbooks so I have endless meal inspiration at my finger tips.   I love to flip through the books and have a photo of the recipe I am creating so I can see what the end result will look like (or should look like).   Mine don’t always turn out like the photos.  : )

Busy schedule

I’m sure I’m not the only one who is busy running kids to activities, stopping by the library, picking up items at the grocery store and doing about a dozen other things on their to-do list.

350 recipes

Making dinner with a busy schedule isn’t always an easy task, but this new cookbook Dinner Made Simple by the Editors of Real Simple saves they day.  Dinner Made Simple is filled with 350 easy recipes with 35 ingredients you may already have on hand.   The Dinner Made Simple cookbook can be found at right now for $16.98 (reg $24.95).   I know many of you have the Target REDcard which means you can have it shipped for FREE!

Dinner Made Simple

I think this cookbook is so clever because it divides recipes into categories of specific food items and then shares variations of recipes containing that one item.    Here are just a few examples of the categories:

  • Apples
  • Beans
  • Eggs
  • Mozzarella
  • Oatmeal
  • Pizza Dough
  • Potatoes
  • Rotisserie Chicken
  • Shrimp
  • Spaghetti
  • Tortillas

Chicken Cutlets

If I have Chicken Cutlets on hand then I will check out the “Chicken Cutlets” section of the book, which is exactly what I did for dinner last week.   I chose to make the Pan-Fried Chicken Cutlets with Zucchini Salad.

cut veggies

I love that it gave me a suggestion of a salad to go with the chicken, I didn’t have to come up with something to compliment the chicken on my own.  Sometimes the less thinking you have to do for dinner, the better.  Am I right?

Pan-Fried Chicken Cutlets with Zucchini Salad

This meal was quick and easy and only took about 30 minutes to prepare.   Quick dinner prep also comes in handy on those busy nights.

garden vegetables

The chicken was good and the Zucchini Salad was divine, it was light and fresh and the perfect compliment to the chicken.   This would make a great meal during the summer when your garden is overflowing with fresh vegetables.

Great gift idea

Pick up a copy of Dinner Made Simply by the Editors of Real Simple at, now is the perfect time since it is sale priced at $16.98, which is 32% off the regular price of $24.95.    This cookbook would also make a great gift!   Simply tie a ribbon around the book and attach a wooden spoon or cooking gadget and you have an easy gift.   I’m thinking this would be great for Mother’s Day.

I own the Cricut Explore Air which I use to make fun gifts, cute home decor, party decorations, iron-ons & more.   Another added bonus is you can cut your own vinyl lettering and designs, which I love!    If you are a crafter, this is one tool you won’t regret owning.

cricut machine

A few of the differences between the Cricut Explore One and Cricut Explore Air are that with the Air you can cut and write with one-step and it has Bluetooth installed which allows for wireless cutting.   Even though the Explore One doesn’t come with this option, you can buy an adapter so you can cut wirelessly too.

If you are new to craft cutting machines the Cricut Explore One Mother’s Day Bundle would be a great machine to start with, Cricut makes it so easy to use!   The great sale at Amazon today makes it the perfect time to buy.   If you think you want to go for the Explore Air, Amazon has it priced at $236.89.  I would also recommend heading over to to check out all the Cricut Explore Air Machine & Bundles they have put together.
