Edited: A Free Cookbook for My Readers

I am often contacted by companies and individuals who want me to talk about their product, help sell their product or do a contest for my readers.  This week I was contacted by Jeff Pirtle, better known as Chef Jeff.  After attending culinary school, being a food service director, a chef on a yacht and more, he put his experience and some of his recipes into an easy to read and easy to follow cookbook for families.  He left out the pretentious recipes and instead chose family-friendly recipes that were healthy, used less than 10 ingredients and involved fresh foods.

Before I would offer this free download to my readers I scanned through the recipes myself to be sure they were 'real food' for 'real families' like I feature (and cook) on An American Housewife for my own family.  They were!  I was thrilled with the delicious recipes and the simplicity style of his writing (much like mine when I tell you to just 'mix it all together!').   Here is a sample of just one... and at the bottom of the page, a link to get his ebook for free.

Balsamic Chicken

This is a nice recipe where the sauce coats the chicken with the onions- yum! I like to add
a pinch of fresh rosemary when cooking the onions, but that is optional.

Serves 4
Cook time: 25 minutes

1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 pound Chicken Breast
1 sliced Onion
1 tablespoon minced Garlic
1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 cup Chicken Broth low sodium
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown the chicken in the oil in skillet over medium-high
heat, Place in a baking dish. Add the onions to the skillet and turn to medium. When they
start to soften and caramelize, add the garlic, balsamic, and chicken broth, and cook until
it starts to thicken. Pour on top of chicken and bake for 15 minutes.
