Sweet Potato & Lentil Stew and Naptime Chef Cookbook Giveaway
I got my copy of The Naptime Chef Cookbook and it is filled with mouthwatering recipes. Seriously, I want to make everything! What’s so great about this cookbook is that you prep during nap and cook with the kids later. But we have to start somewhere so the kids and I chose the sweet potato and lentil stew because it’s cold outside. So enjoy this delicious recipe and if you like it as much as we do let us know in the comment section and see if you are randomly selected to win a free copy of The Naptime Chef Cookbook.
It’s just me and my little guy for the afternoon, and this recipe was perfect for us. I prepped during naptime and once lincoln woke up and was past the groggy stage he was eager to get to work in the kitchen. Normally I take one look at a recipe and end up changing a ton of ingredients, but I decided to stick with this one.
Boy am I glad I did, this stew is perfect as is. My husband could not stop talking about how delicious it is and Lincoln was spooning it in faster then he could eat. What a way to start with this new cookbook, the only thing is I want to keep making this stew every night!
