"What's for dinner?" Three words every mom dreads.
Don't panic! The Six Sisters are here to help you answer that question. The Sisters have gathered together more than 150 of their most popular recipes for entrees, side dishes, and desserts and have combined them into 52 stress-free menus of perfectly prepared three-course meals.
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.
So what's for dinner? Whatever you'd like.
This is truly my kind of cookbook! There are lots of great recipes in here. They are quick and easy to make and they taste yummy. The ingredients are all foods I've heard of and can easily be found in your grocery store.
I love the setup, too. There are 52 menu ideas: an entree, side dish and dessert. These can, of course, be used in multiple combinations so the ideas are limitless. There are also pictures of every dish so you can see what the food looks like. The sisters share a little about each recipe and why they like it. One little tidbit I found interesting (you can find it on their Sloppy Joe page) is they mentioned that they have been approached by two companies to do a reality show. I actually had wondered about that. They've turned them both down and I completely understand their reasoning.
There are a few crafts and traditions included as well. My daughter loved the DIY at-home family restaurant and the "crazy dinner" tradition. I like the 52 weeks of food storage and 52 family dinner conversation starters.
Yes, I have actually made some of the recipes and my family has loved them! We've tried Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Meatballs, Perfect Pineapple Dip, Fudgy Brownies, Cheeseburger Casserole, Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes, Mini Garlic Monkey Bread and Cheesecake Chess Squares. This is already my go to cookbook and I will make many more of these recipes.
There is a Table of Contents in the front and an Index in the back so as I flipped through and later tried to find a certain recipe again, it was easy to do! This is a great recipe book for busy moms and anyone that doesn't like their cooking to be a long and involved process.
I have been making the sisters' recipes for years. I have their previous cookbook and have made a lot of the recipes, so I was really excited to try this one. It did not disappoint. I love the menu format because it pairs recipes together with complementary sides or desserts. I love that I have all the ingredients in my pantry, and I love that they are family friendly. I tried the slow cooker sticky chicken and it was so yummy! I have also made the honey lime enchiladas and they are delicious. My family loves both those recipes, and I can't wait to try more of them. I also love the extras they have like the essential pantry ingredients, the diy chalkboard menu board, and the idea for the "crazy dinner."

A beautifully designed book full of delicious sounding recipes that also includes suggestions for making dinner time fun for the whole family. I don't normally read cookbooks, but I couldn't resist this one when I discovered that it lists 52 complete menus. All of the recipes are straight-forward and sound absolutely scrumptious. Truly a book for the whole family to share and enjoy.
