About the Book

Filled with delicious tried-and-true family favorites and oh-so-easy-to-make dishes, A Year with Six Sisters’ Stuff features all-new recipes using basic ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. Each menu is designed to make your dinner plans as easy as possible—and with such wide variety and a photograph accompanying every recipe in the book, you can easily mix and match menus to create a year’s worth of dinner ideas. In addition, the Sisters share some of their favorite family dinner traditions and crafts, as well as 52 dinner conversation starters, a list of pantry staples, and, food storage plan for beginners.

For those that don’t know me, my second love behind reading is cooking.  Or maybe cooking is my first love and reading is my second?  Either way, they are pretty close together either way and so it is always a bonus to be able to review a cookbook – combine the two!   My husband has actually gotten into cooking recently so it is always nice to have a new source for dishes to try out on the family.  Luckily my stepson eats pretty much anything you put in front of him!  That aside, I have to say that all of the dishes I have tried so far have been quite tasty.  So far we have tried these dishes:

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites (actually made it as a whole one vs. the bites)
Garlic Roasted Potatoes
Slow Cooker Philly Cheese-steak Sandwiches
Baked Seasoned Steak Fries (they got a little burnt but still good!)
Parmesan-Crusted Catfish (instead of Tilapia)
Spinach Lasagna Rolls

I have several more dishes on the “to try” list for the coming week and LOTS of yummy dessert recipes I want to try.  All of these dishes were simple to make, even the lasagna rolls.  In fact they were much easier than I expected.  I liked that the dishes used common ingredients and it was easy to do substitutions for items we don’t normally purchase (like Ritz crackers in the Parmesan crusted fish, I just used bread crumbs).  I also liked that there were DIY projects and ideas to bring the family together.  I want to make the menu board!

I LOVE this cookbook and can’t wait to try more of these dishes.  I think they will all be hits with the family.

We give this book 5 paws and if you don’t win a copy below, definitely look at purchasing it at your favorite bookstore.


About the Authors

The Six Sisters—Camille, Kristen, Elyse, Stephanie, Lauren, and Kendra—grew up in Utah, but a few of them have lived in other parts of the country since moving out of the house. Between them there are five nieces and three nephews, and all of the sisters love playing “aunt.” The sisters started the blog in February 2011 to keep in touch while they were apart, but it has since gained popularity, garnering more than 9 million viewers per month and more than 307,000 followers on Pinterest.
