MY REVIEW

A very good friend introduced me to Our Best Bites and praise the day. Before I got the cookbook, the website was my last minute go-to for everything, and I always was able to find just the thing I was looking for. Having the cookbook to physically look through is even better!

Our Best Bites was started by two Latter-day Saint women who love to cook. Their recipes are easy to make and delicious.

Sugar Cookies

sugar cookie recipe

This sugar cookie recipe suggests rolling out the dough between two layers of parchment paper before refrigerating or freezing, and this little tip made the whole process so much easier. Rolling out the dough and actually cutting the cookies is my least favorite part…it just takes forever! Rolling the dough out first made it so much easier and faster.

The ingredients are all pretty standard and there are so many ways to decorate and enjoy!

Stuffed Apple-Cinnamon Rolls

apple stuffed cinnamon rolls

Cinnamon rolls are one of my favorite foods EVER, and stuffed with Granny Smith apple shreds? Yum. The dough is regular breadstick dough so it’s very easy, not super sweet…just right.

The perfect breakfast…or dessert…or both…

This recipe isn’t on the website, so you need the cookbook!

Creamy Cilantro-Lime Ranch Dressing

cafe rio dressing recipe

I hope you’ve experienced the deliciousness of Cafe Rio. If not you need to make a special trip out to Utah. Cafe Rio is a fresh-ingredient Mexican restaurant where they build your burrito or salad before your eyes and it’s the best thing you’ve ever tasted. Particularly the tomatillo dressing, which this recipe imitates and does a smash hit of a job.

I’ve tried so many version of this recipe and this one comes the very closest to the real thing, it’s amazing. We have a Mason jar of it in our fridge at all times and we can’t get enough. Sooo good!

This is another recipe not on the website, so you need the book!

I’ve tried a bunch of other recipes and they disappeared before I could snap a picture:

  • Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette (my favorite all purpose salad dressing, works for sweet and savory salads both)
  • Poppy Seed Dressing (amazing with a spinach strawberry salad, took recently to a potluck and it disappeared)
  • Almond Poppy Seed Bread (BEST SWEET BREAD EVER)
  • Pizza Sauce (uses multi-purpose Garlic Bread Seasoning (recipe in the book) and is a little bit sweet, thick, and so good. would be excellent also as marinara for dipping, etc.)

There are so many more recipes on our upcoming menu – Garlic Bread Swirls, Lasagna (tonight’s dinner!), mint brownies, apple pie in a jar, all the soups, and much more.

This is a cookbook for everyday Moms, and I’m going to get some serious meal mileage out of it. Thanks to Sara and Kate for all their hard work and to Shadow Mountain Publishing for sponsoring this giveaway!

My favorite recipe is one for cous cous that we received from my sweetheart’s nephew’s wife. It is a hit with company, keeps well, is comfort food, and looks beautiful. Added to that: it’s healthful!

I LOVE the our best bites website and have been dieing for the book! My favorite recipe of theirs right now has got to be the thai noodle salad. The sauce is fabulous and so good on the ingredients they chose to make a salad.

204 Chelle July 28, 2011 at 4:35 pm

Oh my! Spicy Honey Chicken is a staple in our home. I have a hard time finding boneless skinless thighs, but it is sooooo much better with thighs. And the colorburst cupcakes are really fun for the kids.

205 Michele Villano July 28, 2011 at 4:36 pm

My favorite recipe (or one of them) is the Southwest Pasta Salad. YUMMY!

230 Bambie July 28, 2011 at 5:28 pm

I have never liked having to answer the “What is your favorite _____?” question! It just seems to hard to pick just one. So I will tell you a recipe that I like, fruit salsa with cinnamon chips. I have used it for large groups (over 50) and for little family meals. It is very flexible and you can use whatever fruit you have on hand. Oh, and I really want the cookbook! I hope I win it so that I don’t have to try to hunt for one. (I live hours from a Costco!)

231 Teri Madsen July 28, 2011 at 5:30 pm

My favorite recipe is their chicken taquitos with creamy cilantro dressing. So delicious!!!

232 janean July 28, 2011 at 5:32 pm
