Blogiversary Giveaway #2: Ramen to the Rescue Cookbook (with Review)

I've always loved Ramen noodles.  I can't tell you how many packages I've eaten of these over the years. Let's just say, it's a lot!  Today I'm sharing a new book that shows you new, creative recipes that you can make with Ramen.  It's called Ramen to the Rescue.

Ramen to the Rescue, written by Jessica Harlan, contains 120 recipes.  Here's a little information on the book:

"Ramen to the Rescue Cookbook shows those millions of noodle slurpers innovative new ways to enjoy beef, chicken, pork and shrimp ramen-flavored dishes that are so much more than soup. The ultimate collection of comfort-food-noodle recipes, Ramen to the Rescue includes a wide array of mouth-watering treats from Pesto Ramen with Chicken and Hamburger-Noodle Bake to more exotic Asian-inspired dishes like Spicy Basil Ramen Stir-Fry and Soy Sauce Ramen Cabbage Salad. Packed with step-by-step instructions, time-saving tips, and fun illustrations, this book will amaze readers as it demonstrates in a beguiling number of ways how to start with a 10-cent pack of noodles and end with a meal packing a million dollars in scrumptiousness."

My Thoughts:  I love Ramen because it's super inexpensive; it's very easy to make, and it's so flavorful. But this cookbook takes Ramen to a whole new level.  There's some great sections in the book, including every course from Snacks and Starters to Desserts and Sweets.  And no matter what your tastes and cooking style, you're sure to find something that your family will love, whether you enjoy home-style comfort food, meatless means, or Asian-Inspired Classics.

Some recipes that I'd most like to try include: Ramen-N-Cheese, Ramen Alfredo, and Chicken Pot Pie.

I'm also intrigued by some of the breakfast options like the Bacon, Egg, and Noodle Scramble and the Crispy Potato Pancake.

And I can't talk about the book without mentioning the dessert section. The recipes include Ramen-Mallow Treats, Ramen Noodle Pudding, and even Pineapple Upside Down Cake with Candied Noodles.

I think this would be a great book for students and newlyweds, as well as experienced cooks, looking for creative and economical recipes.

Buy it! You can buy the book online at any of these sites: AmazonAmazon KindleBarnes and Noble, and Barnes and Noble - Nook.

Win it!  Five (5) Simply Sweet Home Readers will win a copy of Ramen to the Rescue.
