ABOUT AUTHOR:  NASHVILLE KATE says, "I was born in Watertown, South Dakota but spent much of my life in Seattle. Two passions of mine are people and music so after many years of selling clothes for Nordstrom, I got into radio and produced a morning show in Seattle for long time country radio icon Ichabod Caine. He taught me the fine art of writing comedy and how to interview people and that has serves me well. I love what I do and God has blessed me more than I ever imagined with the best job on the planet!!"

"My husband and I met on a Christian dating site, I was skeptical about the whole internet thing but a few friends encouraged me so I decided to try it. I met the man of my dreams in a way that I had not expected at all. If you too are waiting and waiting like I was and losing hope, don’t! God has a plan and if marriage is the desire in your heart, then He intends to fulfill that. I was married in August 2007.

I love the simple things…spending time with my husband, a good meal, a cozy home, walking our dogs, fires in our fire pit, a good movie, reading anything especially my bible and soaking in our hot tub!

I have a syndicated country music radio show with the latest inside news about your favorite country stars at "

My husband, Canteen Slim wrote a book called, Barrel of Laughs and the Circle of Grins, it’s a perfect gift for children ages 5 to 105. It will remind you of Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein, only better. The Life lessons learned in this fantastic book are lessons that will be with you forever. Character Counts is alone worth the price of the book.

He writes in the forward, “It was my intention to write a book that would make reading fun and incite laughter, learning and the stretching of imaginations. I hope you get at least 10 laughs, 7 chuckles, 5 grins and 2 guffaws out of this while learning a thing or two!”

Review:  Since I’m a person that absolutely needs a cook book to cook, I was thrilled to receive a review copy of this new cook book by radio personality Nashville Kate. My husband is the Chef in our house, I know he’d be great on that show “Chopped” where they have a basket of 4 ingredients and you have 5 seconds to make decide on something amazing out if them in just one hour. I’m hyperventilating just thinking about being in that situation. I don’t know about you but I would need a week to look through all my cook books for ideas and forget about making anything in just one hour. I don’t know my way around the kitchen that well! Grin! I know when it’s my turn to cook I need help!

Are you like me and looking for a meal my family will love, won’t be too hard to make and won’t cost you an arm and a leg to put it on the table? Stuck in a rut of family dinner selections and looking for something new that isn’t too hard to make? Do you want to make yummy meals your whole family will love,  that will also have everyone feel full and satisfied?

Well I have good news for you, The Happy Husband Cook Book will not only make your husband happy but your kids will jump for joy too!

I have a 20, 17 and 14 year olds in my house that can be so picky about what they want to eat. I was overjoyed when they didn’t roll their eyes at trying something new and then asked for seconds. Hooray!

This book is filled with over 200 recipes and can be purchased at Nashville Kat's husband Canteen Slim has illustrated this book. There are fun food facts all through the book on the bottom of the recipes. For example under her recipe for Chicken Supreme it says that this recipe is a throw back from the 60' and goes on to say, "This is a classic recipe that you can't even locate by doing a search on Google!" (How did we ever live without Google?)

Nashville Kate said this about some of her recipes, "The Hash Brown Casserole is full of cheese and sour cream and it's so yummy! The Marinated Flank Steak is work the price of the book alone. The Peanut butter Planets will melt in your mouth. I also have a great overnight Fried Chicken recipe and there's a 2 ingredient whole chicken for the crock pot - using just BBQ sauce - It just falls off the bone!"

This book is filled with yummy food treasures! The recipes have easy to find ingredients, instructions that were easy to understand and follow and meals my family loved. I was amazed when they asked for seconds on the meals I served (they couldn't ask for thirds because I didn't make a big enough batch!! Grin!) These recipes will also be a hit at church potlucks and with your friends.

I tried several recipes from the dinner, soup and dessert categories and look forward to trying the breakfast meals which include the Breakfast Casserole, Dutch Pancakes, Grandma Bert's Cinnamon Rolls, Mouth Meltin' Muffins, and many of the bread selections, such as Buckle-ip Biscuits, Butternut Squash Bread, Peanut Butter Bread, Iowa Cornbread and many more.

The book includes over 200 receipes that are broken down into Appetizers, Soups, Salads, Dressings, 14 Meatless Main Dishes, 33 Main Dishes, Vegetable Sides, and let's not forget about the Breakfast Meals and Desserts!! Out of the meals I made from this book my favorite were the Hash Brown Soup, South Dakota Beef Stew and Strawberry Pizza Pie (I know as I work my way through the recipes in this book we'll discover more family favorites)

This author packs so much fun and yummy recipes into about a 125 page book. I highly recommend this comfort food cook book where I know you'll discover some new family favorites of your own inside it's pages, like we did!
