About my blog

When I was a little girl, I struggled to read. Reading did not come naturally to me; however, over the last 30 years I have become an avid reader, I love books. I love LDS (Latter Day Saint) Historical fiction, I love romance, I love biographies, I love stories of hope, and ways to help. I will post books that I have read, ones that have warmed my heart and given me hope!

Six Sister' STUFF: Family Recipes, Fun, Crafts, and so much more!

 About the Challenge:

Join us for the 4x4 Family Dinner Challenge!

During the month of March, we encourage you to have dinner with your family four nights per week, for four weeks. It’s really easier than you think…and we’ll provide tips and recipes to help you throughout the month. We all know that family dinners are important – they’re often the glue that binds families together, that provides us valuable time to discuss the day’s events, and even gives us moments to laugh and enjoy each other’s company.
Please join with us to build families, one meal at a time.

We also invite you to share with us (and our readers) why you love family dinners and how they unite your family. You can do so on our Facebook page, via Twitter, or through a photo on Pinterest.

 About the Authors:
The Six Sisters—Camille, Kristen, Elyse, Stephanie, Lauren, and Kendra—grew up in Utah, but a few of them have lived all over the country since moving out of the house. Between them there are five nieces and two 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 6 million viewers per month and more than 160,000 followers on Pinterest.

About the book:
Cook, craft, and create with recipes, projects, and ideas from the enormously popular blog SixSistersStuff.com. Camille, Kristen, Elyse, Stephanie, Lauren, and Kendra are six sisters who share their easy, affordable recipes and crafts in this collection of family favorites. These pages contain more than 90 tried-and-true recipes that use ingredients commonly found in your pantry, with easy-to-follow instructions and photographs of each dish. Charming do-it-yourself projects, such as stained Mason Jars and a Ruffles and Yarn Wreath, are fun to create and require little time or money. Suggestions for indoor activities for kids, healthy snack ideas, or an inexpensive night out are among the many lists included in the book. "We don't profess to be amazing chefs," the sisters claim. "We just know the importance of feeding our families a home-cooked meal and sitting down to eat it together. Even the busiest of people can make the food and project ideas we share, which will give you even more time to spend with your family and loved ones."

My Review:

This book was such a fun book to review, I have three sisters and no brothers, so I could relate to these six sisters a great deal! I wish my sisters and I were as genius as these six sisters are to come up with a way to stay in touch with each other as lives start to separate them by miles.

First of all, this is WAY, WAY more than a cookbook. This book has recipes (that are extremely yummy), crafts, cleaning ideas, 50 fun dates, 100 snack ideas, 101 fun, easy and cheap indoor activities for kids (I need this for my kids), building a 72 hour kit in 52 weeks, 40 road trip ideas for kids (LOVE this, since I love road trips).

I tried several of the recipes and tonight, I'm doing my whole dinner from the book. Monday's a crazy night at my house. So I wanted to try something new to help my family want to be as busy as they are on a Monday night.

The recipes are easy to make, they are not complicated at all. I found them extremely user friendly, plus the pictures help if you are idea challenged like me. One thing I loved is that there are plenty of ideas, plus with snack ideas it links back to the blog for even more instructions.

For those readers who like to try new things, or want ideas on crafts, recipes, and many more, this book is certainly for you. It is so fun to go through. My kids have loved looking through the book and have found many things we have tried. You can not go wrong with this book, it is totally for everyone!

This is one of the best books I have read, looked at, cooked from, followed the blog in a long time. Its a must have! Thank you for Shadow Mountain for allowing me the opportunity to review this book. I was not paid, but instead recieved a copy of the book, for my honest review.

DO NOT forget the dinner challenge.
