The Looneyspoons Collection! {giveaway!}

Sisters Janet and Greta Podleski are the authors of three #1 bestselling cookbooks: Looneyspoons, Crazy Plates and Eat, Shrink & Be Merry! The books were best-known for their unique combination of great-tasting, healthy food, useful nutrition tips and corny humor.


When Greta emailed me herself to see if I wanted to do a review/giveaway for their new cookbook, i may or may not have squee'd right out loud, and then ran and told the mr, and then maybe facebook'd about it too..lol. There was no doubt about it! I know who you ladies are! I love you! Of course I'll check out your new book!! (talk about feelin' just a tad star-struck!)

When it came in just a few days later I ripped that package right open and immediately started flippin' through it. It's so big and bright and colourful, and there is a really nice 'personal' feel to it that you certainly don't find in many other cookbooks. They share stories and blog posts from their lives, and you feel like you just know them!

The Looneyspoons Collection is Janet & Greta’s biggest and best book ever. Jam-packed with 325 “I can’t believe these are healthy!” recipes, gorgeous food photos and tons of healthy-living tips. A must-have cookbook!

We've made two recipes so far out of the cookbook, but have a list of 'must make SOON' recipes on the fridge. The first recipe we made was for 'STEWpendous Beef'. It was absolutely DELISH! There was not a drop left in anyones bowls that evening! (which was rather surprising to me because i got 'creative' and used purple heirloom carrots instead of normal ones, and well the stew took on a greyish hue..lol). The next recipe we tried out was 'Ladle in Red'(classic beef chili). Now I normally make a mean chili, but I have to admit that this one had wonderful taste to it and will now be my recipe of choice! You win ladies! I wave the white flag! :)

So what's on the list for future dinners?? 'Morroccan and Rollin Quinoa Salad', 'Chowdy Doody', 'Hakuna Frittata', 'One Flew over the Couscous Nest', 'Not Humdrumsticks', 'Dilly Beloved', 'Hurry Curry', 'Unrolled Cabbage Rolls', and soooo many more!

The best news for fans and owners of our cookbooks is that all of our old, outdated recipes from Looneyspoons and Crazy Plates have been REVISED and UPDATED to reflect current nutritional trends and ingredients. We think some of our older recipes are too high in sugar and salt and these recipes have been modified and ‘healthified’ for the new book. We’ve also included gluten-free recipes as well as recipes suitable for diabetics.

Make sure you stop by http://janetandgreta.com, their website is FULL of amazing info!


And now for the fun part! One lucky Home of OHM reader will win a copy of The LooneySpoons Collection of their own! I think you'll flip for this fantastic cookbook like I did!

  3. It actually wouldn't be for me. My daughter's dad makes her quesadillas or grilled cheese whenever she is over at his house. He doesn't like cookbooks because "they are boring". I'd love to give him something funny and fairly simple!
