The new cookbook is coming for members tomorrow! Recipes don’t get much quicker or easier than this. You know when you see a cookbook called “Fast Meals” or “Quick N Minutes,” and then disappointment sets in when you discover they take over 25 minutes to make? Well, not this one. If they seem too easy or too simple, it’s because they are supposed to be. Most of the meals shown are from my own personal eating collection; Cottage Butter Pita is no exception and it is one of my favorites. This recipe packs a whopping 35 grams of protein and tastes awesome.
