My Review

Not only is this book full of delicious meals that can help any busy family, it is beautifully done.  The colors and lay-out of the book is lovely.  For some of the recipes, there are personal stories/experiences from the sister that donated it.  The pictures are lovely and help you want to make them now!  So many yummy menu selections to choose from.  Also within the book are some fun DIY ideas that can be a fun family home evening project, there are food storage ideas, fun ways to plan meals, the "crazy dinner" tradition.  Plus many more great ideas.  What I love most about this book, is lots of the recipes have ingredients that many of us have in our pantry already!  Or, if you are like me, and am not the most motivated cook, anything yummy can be made with a quick trip to the store.  The best suggestion (one I need to work on) is the plan ahead.

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.
