UPDATE 10/25/16: Congrats to our winner, Andres H. in NY! He wanted the copy to cook for his wife, Gaby! So sweet! Enjoy it, guys! ~Coppelia
So here’s YOUR CHANCE!!! Today’s the day!!!
The new “100 Days of Real Food: Fast and Fabulous” cookbook by Lisa Leake is out TODAY! And you can enter to win your very own copy, right here on my blog! YAYYYY!!!!
(Note: This is a sponsored blog post that contains affiliate links. As a Cookbook Ambassador, I received a copy of the new book, plus one to giveaway. In return, I’m happy to share my honest review here on the blog & social media. If you get the book thru my affiliate link, I get a small commission at no extra cost to you. It’s a Win-Win! All opinions are my own — I actually have been a fan of Lisa and her 100 Days website for years!) 🙂
But first, I had to try one of the recipes! I was debating whether to make the fish tacos or the white chicken chili, so I asked my fam and they all yelled CHILI!!!
Easy decision. 🙂
Plus, the picture in the cookbook looked amazing!
On top of that, it’s fall and this past weekend in Houston we had a GLORIOUS little dip into the 50s that begged for some fall-inspired chili.
The recipe called for chicken breasts, but we had frozen ones that would take for-e-ver, so my hubby decided he’d stop and just pick up a rotisserie chicken on the way home. Worked for me. Thanks, Babe!
It also called for heavy cream and my daughter is allergic to dairy, so we skipped it and decided we could try a less-creamy/chunkier version.
The result? Absolutely delicious!!!
My hubby added some fresh avocado slices on top (and cheese to his), which added that bit of creaminess that we missed by skipping the dairy. It was perfect.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg (or romaine!)
There are SO MANY recipes I want to try from the new cookbook!
I already love Lisa’s 100 Days Whole Wheat Pancakes, and her Easy Slow Cooker Refried Beans are some of the best I’ve ever had (and I actually made them!) LOL!
Now the new Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup is already calling my hubby’s name.
And there is a whole section for kid-friendly real food school lunches that I’m loving!!!
I also can’t wait to try the Moroccan Meatballs and pretty much ALL of Chapter 8 — Simple Dinners like the Weeknight Beef Bourguignon and the Simple Salmon! Ooh and the Lamb Burgers!
Plus, there is one dessert that is calling my name — Mint. Chocolate. Truffles. MMMMMMMmmmmmmmm.
I just realized the Moroccan Meataballs are featured on the back cover of the book! COOL!
And now that I’ve got the book right here with me, this would be the perfect time to share my extra copy with YOU!!!

Laughing (and cooking real food) through life,
P.S. Here’s my affiliate link, if you want to check out the book on Amazon!
I would want to try ALL OF THE ABOVE – my kids are always complaining that we cook the same set of meals all the time and yet if I try new things it can be hit or miss. Is there a good enchilada recipe? I’ve been trying to find one that doesn’t use all the pre-prepared sauces (= TOO SALTY) but isn’t too spicy because we are gringos!
Haha! I agree! I don’t like spicy either! (I’m puertorrican–I like savory, not spicy!) lol!
The Moroccan meatballs!! Me equivoqué con mi email en el primer post ?
Haha! No hay problema!
Rossy Alvarado y me gustaría probar las Moroccan meatballs!!
A mi tambien!
Moroccan meatballs , something new to try and the kids can help make them:) and the French toast can’t go wrong with that.
That’s what I love about the cookbook! Everything sounds delicious AND doable (and kid-friendly!) 🙂
All of it sounds yummy! I’d probably try the meatballs first??
I can’t wait to try those meatballs!
I want to try them all!! Thanks for link,Coppelia

#4 specially because I love meal prepping and have 3 kids lunches to figure out daily!
Would definitely start with chilli recipe tô welcome the fall!!!
This Texan loves a good chilli recipe! ???
Definitely!!! And it’s so good!
What else is there once you see Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup!!!
I’d love to try the same dish you tried! White chicken chili because it looks AMAZEBALLS!!
Thanks for the chance to win!
The Crunchy French Toast Casserole sounds like the one for me.
I can’t wait to try that one, too!
I would chose #4 and then the tortilla soup and lamb burgers. Now I’m hungry!!
