 Last Friday, we gave away a book to one of our loyal (andclever) Facebook/blog fans. This week, we’re back at it with our best selling book,Fresh Food Fast: Weeknight Meals. We’ve heard from lots of you via Facebook andTwitter, that this collection of quick recipes is a favorite.

The first book in the series, Fresh Food Fast, is one I cookfrom at home quite a bit. My favorite recipe from that collection is Deep SouthShrimp and Sausage. Since I’m a deep-South Georgia girl, it’s hard to tear mefrom traditional shrimp and grits that fulfills the 4 wonders of southerncooking—cheesy, creamy, spicy, salty. Our lightened version is really good with sweet Gulf shrimp, smoky turkey sausage, and that delectable base of cheese grits--and better yet it doesn’t require me to run the block or drink a gallon of water after Ipartake. This recipe seriously takes less than 15 minutes to make. No test kitchen tricks (and that time includes me wrangling 2 young kids).
