Thank you to everyone who ordered a cookbook! I was surprised by the popularity.  Just a quick NOTE: if you find you are missing Week 12 from your copy – go to “Manage Your Devices” on Amazon and there is an update to restore it to your copy. Somewhere between draft and going live, some copies lost that week. It has been restored. 🙂

Order What’s 4 Dinner Solutions: Summer into Fall here!

What’s 4 Dinner Solutions actually started years before the blog, as a menu service for busy families. When it was time to move on from that, I started the blog to continue sharing recipes. But what that means is, I have in my arsenal, fifty-two weeks of menus, recipes and shopping lists.

A few years ago, a friend convinced me to turn it into a cookbook. I quickly realized it would be unmanageable as one cookbook, so I’ve created four: Summer into Fall, Fall into Winter, Winter into Spring and Spring into Summer.

Recipes and menus are seasonal, to take advantage of what is local and fresh when available.

Not ordinary cookbooks. These are more a weekday dinner menu guide, including menus, recipes, shopping lists, and helpful tips.  Most menus are thirty minutes or less.  Each menu is filled with fresh ingredients that complement each other.

What’s 4 Dinner Solutions: Summer into Fall is available now! Order here.

What here for updates for each additional season!

Kindle vs. Hard Copy Question: 

I’ve received several questions on why Kindle vs. paperback. Here’s my answer:

I won’t be able to publish a hard copy because it is cost-prohibitive to have it printed with the color photos. Also, I wanted it to be searchable – that was the feature most people wanted when I polled them about formats.

BUT the good news is, you don’t need a kindle – you just need your phone, computer or tablet, and the free Kindle app. Runs great on it. I actually have an old paperwhite kindle, but most always read on my phone because it’s always with me so I don’t have to carry something extra in my bag. 

And I rarely open a cookbook these days – if I don’t have the recipe on the blog, I find one on the internet to use.
