Ever since becoming parents, my husband and I rarely have time to sit down for a wholesome home-cooked meal. Even when we attempt to make dinner, it usually ends up being the ravioli out of the freezer or macaroni and cheese variety. Which is great, but not

*every*night. Through her cookbook, Make-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms, Jane Doiron shows you how to have nutrious meals for dinner again, with delicious recipes and great techniques for preparing foods in advance.

The cookies came out beautiful, and are so delicious. I wish I could upload one to you Willy-Wonka style! Oatmeal raisin are hubby's favorite, so he'll be a happy camper tonight! I can't wait to try the other recipes in this book, so that we can start enjoying real meals around here.

BUY IT! Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms is available for purchase at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. What a great gift idea!

WIN IT! One lucky reader will receive a copy of Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms!
