    4 blessed stars this incorporates a lot of factors into one book. None of the recipes are overly complicated and have a simple everyone's pallet. I have tried a few and found I like a bit more seasoning or kick to it all. I am not the type to care much for scripture but I liked the busy womans and stress-free cooking concept. My friend and I are trying many more of the recipes but since this book is archiving on netgalley and I would like to submit my review without having tried all the recipes 4 blessed stars this incorporates a lot of factors into one book.

" I am not a follow a recipe to the fullest but a guideliner and these recipes allow for it

Her humor starts to show in her acknowledgements page. The section dividing pages through out the book, also have the apron seen on the cover of the book, which I think is so pretty, and on them she wrote some enjoyable quotes. Throughout the recipes pages, she also sprinkled some “Chuckle Breaks” which are pleasant to read.

    This wonderful cookbook eliminates the need for a few that are already on my bookshelf. Since my kitchen is small, and I keep cookbooks on a shelf in my tiny pantry, I don't have very much room.

Since my kitchen is small, and I keep cookbooks on a shelf in my tiny pantry, I don't have very much room. Every new thing I buy requires some careful consideration.

Each of those sections is broken down into sub sections, so the author made it easy to find recipes that you might like to try. I always like to have an idea of what I will find in a cookbook, so here is a sampling: The easiest way to cook chicken; pizza; stir-fry; beef and bean bonanza; everybody's fave baked spaghetti; incredibly easy quiche; crispy cheddar chicken; fabulous 15-minute fettuccine; lip-smacking barbecue; cricket's breakfast casserole; pumpkin soup; sweet potato dumplings; eclair cake and just shoot me Snicker's cake. Rounding out this cookbook are scripture selections; tips and some amusing stories about cooking by the author. I highly recommend this cookbook, and I think I would make a great gift for anyone.

    I became a fan of Debora Coty's writing when I saw her book, TOO BLESSED TO BE STRESSED in 2011. It held several A-HA! moments for me and I felt like Coty understood how easy it is to get in the cycle of "busyness" without slowing down and enjoying the moments. Coty knows what it is like to balance a home, a career, and your family while trying to provide a nutritional meal for your family every day of the week. She has compiled some of her tried and true favorites from Dump Dishes (One -Stop Sch I became a fan of Debora Coty's writing when I saw her book, TOO BLESSED TO BE STRESSED in 2011. It held several A-HA! moments for me and I felt like Coty understood how easy it is to get in the cycle of "busyness" without slowing down and enjoying the moments. Coty knows what it is like to balance a home, a career, and your family while trying to provide a nutritional meal for your family every day of the week. She has compiled some of her tried and true favorites from Dump Dishes (One -Stop Schlopping Dinner in a Pan) to Southern Favorites from her Grandma's best recipes to Heart Healthy Dishes and even Desserts. She has stock-piled these recipes over the last forty years and has compiled them together into one cookbook for busy women. Recipes can be adapted to families or empty-nesters and cover all culinary tastes. I like how all the meals used pretty basic ingredients and for the two recipes I tried, I just needed to buy a couple ingredients that I didn't already have in my pantry. Coty shares her recipe fumbles and successes along with stories of why a particular recipe is a favorite. Each recipe is thoroughly explained and takes little time to prepare. Even though I highlighted numerous recipes that I want to tr,y I chose the Impossible Meat Pie and Pizza in a Pot for my first two dishes. Both were quick and easy and with a few minor changes allowed me to feed our family of five. I added the side dishes to complete the meal. Impossible Meat Pie uses Bisquick, hamburger, mixed veggies and cheese as the main ingredients. It lacked a pop of flavor but was simple to mix up and pop in the oven. The Pizza in a Pot tasted more appetizing than it looks. I wish I hadn't put all the sauce in that the recipe called for because I felt like it was too much. But, since I cooked it in the slow cooker, I didn't want it to get to dry. It actually tasted pretty good if you can get past the look of it. It only took 4 hours in the slow cooker on low, so it isn't something you could put in before you go to work. More of a weekend dish, which is when I did it. Serving it with rolls or garlic bread to dip in the extra sauce was a plus as well. Overall, I really liked her cookbook and stories she shared about her family, her faith, and tips for women in general. I read this on my Kindle before the book was published. There were some formatting issues, like the letter "f" was missing throughout the entire book. Once I figured it out, it wasn't a huge issue but was a bit odd. A couple other recipes had missing steps in the recipe description, but most women comfortable in the kitchen would figure it out. Again, these will likely be fixed for the print edition. There were some recipes I have seen before but had forgotten like Oyster Cracker Eaties. I haven't had them in ages and want to make them for our next gathering with friends. Coty closes the book with menu suggestions and an ingredients list for three days worth of meals which are a great idea to help with meal planning. If you are looking for new suggestions to add to your family meal rotation, this cookbook will offer lots of ideas.

    I’m not sure why, but I have always enjoyed reading cookbooks. I like finding new things to try and occasionally actually try them. Reality sinks in and things get busy and I find myself relying on things I know that are pretty easy and quick to make. One thing that I liked about this cookbook is all of the recipes require 20 minutes or less of prep time. While things are baking or whatever, I can be working on other things. Some of the recipes only needed 15 minutes TOTAL…with no extra cook tim I’m not sure why, but I have always enjoyed reading cookbooks. I like finding new things to try and occasionally actually try them. Reality sinks in and things get busy and I find myself relying on things I know that are pretty easy and quick to make. One thing that I liked about this cookbook is all of the recipes require 20 minutes or less of prep time. While things are baking or whatever, I can be working on other things. Some of the recipes only needed 15 minutes TOTAL…with no extra cook time. I can always use some of those recipes in my arsenal. There are four sections in this cookbook: Time-Wise, Soul-Fed, Heart-Healthy, and Company-Happy. The Time-Wise section includes one-pan meals, quick fixes, slow cooker meals, and quick desserts. The Soul-Fed section includes Southern Fare, Breads, Munchies and Sweets. Heart-Healthy recipes include low fat, fiber rich, vegetarian, and “shades of green.” The Company-Happy section includes hors d’oeuvres, soups/salads/sides, entrees, and desserts. The book concludes with eight menu selections and accompanying grocery lists for those who want to just pick some recipes and run with it. I identified many recipes that I will try and hope to make “Starke Raving Chicken,” “Incredibly Easy Cheesecake,” and “Cha-Ching Chili Dip” for our next football party. Most of the recipes look very doable and delicious. The ingredient lists aren’t too long. The author identifies when a lighter version ingredient would work or wouldn’t work, which is helpful. There are color pictures of most recipes, which isn’t always the case in an e-cookbook. I like that a lot. To make it easier to find recipes again (since I have an e-version), I will highlight the recipes in various colors. Blue highlights may mean “Try this one soon” while pink will mean something else. That way, I can scroll through the NOTES section on my Kindle and quickly identify what I’m looking for. It’s the easiest way I’ve found to use an e-cookbook. If you have a better way, please leave me a note in the comments. There is a healthy dose of humor in this book. There are “chuckle breaks” built in between recipes. Some of them made me laugh out loud. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who has had culinary flops or misadventures…like the time the tip of my rubber spatula melted off in the cheese souffle. Even the recipes themselves have some humor. One recipe said, “Serves: a small army.” The author ties in her faith in a sweet, fitting way in the anecdotes between recipes too. That was another cool thing about this cookbook. If you are in a busy season of life and could use some simple recipes to add some variety to your cooking without a lot of stress or work, give this cookbook a try. It would also be a great cookbook to give to someone who is newer to cooking as the recipes are not very complicated. It’d be a great way to gain some confidence and make some delicious meals. Thank you to Barbour Books for providing me with a free e-copy of this book for the purpose of this review.

I love to read cookbooks—cooking not so much. But I do love to read the ingredient list, the instructions, look at and drool over the pictures and imagine the taste. Debora Coty has written a most delightful cookbook. The titles alone bring laughter and fun. Dump Dishes: One-Stop Schlopping (Dinner in One Pan) for example. And her pals have contributed their favorite recipes: Wild & Crazy Chicken & Rice, Keep You Full Breakfast Bowl, Mighty Pleasin’ Potpie. Debora doesn’t stop there—lest we get stressed from contemplating actually cooking, she has planned “Chuckle Breaks” such as Martha Bolton’s Potato Salad Fiasco, I Won’t Tell if You Won’t (Otherwise Known as Deb’s Confession), and Lumps & All. Interspersed with the chuckles and recipes are quotes about cooking and food and life. “Tis an ill cook that cannot lick his own fingers.”—William Shakespeare; “Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart.”—Erma Bombeck; “The righteous eat to their hearts’ content, but the stomach of the wicked goes hungry.”—Proverbs 13:25 NIV; “You only live once—lick the bowl!”—Wise Woman in Grocery Aisle. Designed to accompany her Too Blessed to Be Stressed series of books, this Too Blessed to Be Stressed Cookbook is well laid out, has tasty recipes, and even includes menu plans and shopping lists. Debora truly has taken much of the stress out of cooking. After reading the cookbook, I might, just might resort to “cooking something from scraps” myself. Debora M. Coty is an inspirational humorist who delights in speaking at events, writing columns and books—More Beauty, Less Beast; Fear, Faith, and a Fistful of Chocolate; Too Loved to Be Lost. Deb makes her home and tests these recipes in Seffner, Florida. Find out more interesting info at www.DeboraCoty.com Happy eating!

    My thoughts. I made two recipes out of this cookbook. The first was Best Bean Soup Ever on page 94. We added carrots, celery, and onions to the basic recipe since we love our vegetables, and did not double the recipe since it says it serves 6 - 8. We're a family of seven and I knew one son would refuse to eat it so I figured we were good. It has served the six of us three days now and we still have some left over.

We're a family of seven and I knew one son would refuse to eat it so I figured we were good. It has served the six of us three days now and we still have some left over. We give this recipe 3 stars as it is not the best bean soup ever, our preferred recipe is better. Maybe because I am not a huge fan of kidney and pinto beans. I also made Luscious Lime Pie on page 54. My family were greatly excited to have "Key Lime Pie" for desert for a rare treat (I also made one for the church potluck) but it also got a 3 star rating from the family. My daughters thought it was too sour, my husband said it was too rich. It was good and simple to make so is a quick meal. The cookbook is full of cute stories and jokes, the recipes are basic and simple; made with ingredients most people have on hand (You might need to pick up one or two items) and is set up for full meals if you want to use it that way. Makes it easy to plan menu rotations. It also includes a shopping list of ingredients you need for each recipe which makes it easy. For women who work outside the home, eat out more than they should because they have no time to cook, this cookbook will be a blessing, It will help them cook more at home since the food preparation in most cases take less time than sitting in a drive-through line during rush hour,

The author is liberal with her scripture verses and quotes. Each recipe has a small list of ingredients, a few simple instructions, and often a thought or antidote about the recipe. There are colorful photographs to go along with some of the recipes. The colors and fonts are fun and playful and follow the design of the cover. I loved the colors and layout. The recipes, while simple, weren't boring. Most of them are ones that I would be willing to try/or already tried on my super picky family. I also liked the personal and Biblical touches that the author added. I viewed the kindle version and didn't care for it. But it was a personal preference and so I'll be purchasing a paper copy of this book to use. I just find it easier to use a paper book that I can make notes in, dog ear pages, etc. and I find this a bit more difficult on the iPad. Overall, would recommend a paper copy of this to any of my busy friends who want to cook great meals for their family, but aren't blessed with lots of time. I received this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

There is pasta, chicken, pizza, soups, salads, desserts, healthy food, and many more. She also gives some suggestions of menus that we can use. She adds some interesting and funny quotes from famous people in each recipe, and she also includes some funny stories that make the book a great read. I loved her sense of humor.

Many people I find are unable to just wing it when it comes to food and need a recipe to follow for their food to be good. This book will not get you to the wing it stage but will help you move away from relying on recipes. I would recommend this book for anyone who loves to cook. It will either give you some new recipes or just some inspiration for your next dish.

    What a fun cookbook! I love cookbooks and thoroughly enjoyed perusing this one. I recognized many of the recipes as familiar but with a different name or a slight variation of ingredients.

The menu selections and grocery lists at the back make meal planning convenient for working families or for moms who just don't have a lot of time to put dinner together. The author's humorous stories and notes on the recipes are truly endearing. Those little touches make this book both informative and fun. And the format is very cute and colorful. I highly recommend this cookbook. It contains a wide variety of simple recipes that don't require a lot of time or advanced cooking skills. It would make a great gift for anyone of any age.

    This author is so funny! I found myself flipping to the “chuckle breaks” at times more than I did the actual recipes. I love her stories, her inclusions of Bible verses, and quotes.

Her recipes are down home, family friendly recipes that I believe so many will enjoy. They are simple and quick with ingredients that are normal to most households.

Coty has given us so many wonderful recipes for comfort food in her book that there will no doubt be something that everyone will find appealing. Some recipes I found that I was intrigued because I would never have thought of the pairing but when reading the recipe made me think it was definitely worth a try. I highly recommend this delightful cookbook that will have you chuckling as you are cooking! Comfort foods with a bit of southern charm to many will have you loving the variety. I received this book for an honest review exchange and I can truthfully say it was a treat to read and find some new recipes to try at home, church or any occasion.

    My Thoughts On The Book: I love this book. I read it in an ebook format and definitely have added it to my Christmas Wish List for Santa. I have already used the book several times for several venues. The food I have cooked so far is amazing and the directions are easy. The Lucious Lime Pie was a hit in my house, as were the dump dishes. They were so easy, so quick, and delicious! I loved the little humorous quips spread throughout the book and the little stories.

    There were several things that I liked about this book. I really liked the author, she is passionate and funny and I liked how she set the cookbook up, it seemed really helpful for people who might not have a lot of experience in the kitchen. The stories that are included about cooking are warm and funny and I smiled while reading a lot of them. The problem I have with the book is the recipes. While a lot of them did sound good, I felt they were too simplistic for me. They also used condensed sou There were several things that I liked about this book.

While a lot of them did sound good, I felt they were too simplistic for me. They also used condensed soups and ready made items like pie crusts and I like to make a lot of things for my family from scratch so I would not use a lot of the recipes in this book. For someone just starting out in cooking this would probably be a good book to get you started because the recipes are fairly easy, but if you are looking to eat healthier, whole foods this is not the cookbook for you.

    I got Too Blessed to be Stressed by Debora M Coty from Netgalley for an honest review and i'm so glad I did. Packed full of mouth watering recipes for all the family to get stuck into. This cook book has everything I especially love the section on slow cooker recipes for those busy days when you don't have the time to be standing over a hot pan. The honey mustard chicken is to die for and the kids love to make pizza in a pot.

    This cookbook is small and adorable. I love the pretty colors and layout of the pages. I want to get in my kitchen straight away and try out so many of the 20 minute or less recipes. The recipes are easy enough for an unseasoned cook. The bible quotes are refreshing and the kitchen mishap stories are funny. Perfect gift for all the Christian women in your life, who want to cook nice meals, but are short on time (who isn't?). I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

    (I received a free ebook copy of this cookbook from NetGalley.) I love looking through cookbooks, looking through the different recipes for ideas. This cookbook includes many different kinds of recipes, and it also offers plenty of tips which are helpful. The recipes themselves seem to be quick and simple. The author also shares some hilarious stories about culinary mishaps, which makes the book even more enjoyable.

    Charming book! Reading through the book I found myself smiling, chuckling out loud, and relating to the kitchen recipe misfortunes. The first day I read it I picked up the simple ingredients for one of the recipes and prepared it... ready to eat in 20 minutes! my husband ate 3 bowls and my daughter even ate more than usual. I recommend this book!

    a stress free way to prepare some truly tasty meals in minutes! Great for working moms, singles who might be working 2 or 3 jobs or are just busy with a hectic social, family or professional life, or people who just don't want to waste hours cooking in the kitchen. Easy to understand, it's a great way to get in, and then out, of the kitchen and still create a great meal!

    Good message in this cookbook with interesting and entertaining anecdotes. A lot of the recipes are vintage 1970s casserole dishes, same with the desserts. Tried a few of them, including the chocolate graham cracker dessert. Tasty but MUCH too sweet. Will remake but with replacing cool whip with homemade whipped cream, and no corn syrup.

    I won this book from First Reads here on Goodreads. I've tried several of the recipes, they were pretty good. I skipped using the canned chicken which added a bit of prep time but I've never used can chicken and don't see it being that tasty.
