If you are looking for something to get the food lover in your life then the new cookbook by Laurie McNamara is just what you’re looking for. Her new book Simply Scratch: 120 Wholesome Homemade Recipes Made Easy would make an excellent gift this holiday season. There are so many delicious recipes and today I’m sharing one of my favorites: Skirt Steak Fajitas.
I first met Laurie a few years back when I attended the BlogHer Food conference in Austin. She was such a sweetheart and after checking out her blog, Simply Scratch, it instantly became one of my favorites. Laurie cooks a lot like I do. Her recipes are down to earth, easy to follow and perfect for families.
When I first got my hands on this gorgeous cookbook and began thumbing through the pages, I found so many recipes that I just knew my family would love. The book starts with the Kitchen Basics chapter that includes tips for how to stock your pantry, tips on using different fats and oils and so many more useful kitchen tips. And that’s just chapter one! There are also chapters on breakfast, soups and salads, sides, mains, dessert and my favorite chapter: Chapter 2: The Basics from Scratch where Laurie shares her recipes for condensed soups, seasoning mixes, condiments and dressings so you don’t need to buy them from the store. I have always been a huge fan of making my own seasonings but had never thought to make my own condensed soups before, such a cool recipe to have in your arsenal!
I’m telling you, friends, this is a great book.
Today I am sharing Laurie’s recipe for Skirt Steak Fajita’s just to give you an idea of all of the yumminess that you can find in this book.
These Skirt Steak Fajitas are all kinds of delicious. They start off with a simple marinade using Laurie’s Homemade Fajita Seasoning, then a quick cook with onions and bell peppers and you’re off to one of the most flavorful plate of skirt steak fajitas I’ve had in a long time.
And if sharing this yummy recipe with you wasn’t enough, thanks to Laurie, I am also giving away 2 copies of her book! All you have to do to win is leave a comment below telling me your favorite weeknight meal and I’ll choose two winners at random.
Meanwhile though, I highly suggest you make these skirt steak fajitas, pronto. They are pretty amazing.
