New Cookbook in the House

My brother gave me a new cookbook for Christmas. It's called "The SparkPeople Cookbook: Love your food, loose the weight " Sparkpeople is a weight loss/change your life by being healthy website that I've been a part of for over a year. It's a great site and I would recommend it to anybody looking for motivation to be healthier this year. (

Last week was the first chance I had to use the cookbook. I was so excited--the cookbook is beautiful with full-page photos and it's layed out really well. The first recipe I tried was coconut shrimp. I have never ever made shrimp before, but was on sale and I had recently seen a demo on how to de-vein and clean them so I thought it was worth a try. And they were delicious! (And de-veining shrimp isn't so bad.)

Last night I made the spinach-stuffed chicken breast with cheese sauce. It was actually pretty easy if you're patient and it was so good! I will definitely be making that again (let me know when you want to come over!).

I really enjoy cooking and I try to make good tasting health food. Sometimes it's just good, and sometimes it's just healthy but from what see in this cookbook, it'll be both! This stuffed chicken was!
