A Year With Six Sisters' Stuff: 52 Menu Plans, Recipes, and Ideas to Bring Families Together by Six Sisters' Stuff | Cookbook Review

This is a fantastic cookbook!  Tons of color photographs (EVERY recipe has a photograph!) and all the recipes are super easy and well-explained and all the family tradition anecdotes are adorable.  The cookbook is laid out into 52 meal plans consisting of a main dish, a side dish, and a dessert.  Yes, that means there are 52 sweet tooth recipes in this cookbook!  Mmm... everything looked so good it was hard to pick just a few to try and highlight!

Easy Salsa Rice:  This got two thumbs up from us, and will become a staple on "Mexican Night" at our house.  (And at our house, "Mexican Night" happens nearly once a week.)  You mix together just six things (and one of those things is water) and microwave and voila!

Garlic Roasted Potatoes:  Took me less than 10 minutes to prep; roasted for 45 minutes; delicious.  The potatoes were just the right bit of garlicky and slightly crisp on the outside like we like them.

Gooey Lemon Bars:  Shut the front door!  These are SO GOOD!  I just absolutely love lemony desserts and bake them all summer long.  There's a crust-type layer that's soft & chewy topped by a gooey layer topped by a frosting layer.  I do not think these will last long in our house.

Slow Cooker Roasted Vegetables:  Super simple and delicious!  You just chop all the veggies and throw them in the Crock Pot and forget about them for a few hours and then voila, a delicious and nutritious side.  I'm testing these recipes in the hot southern summer, and I also like that this recipe uses the Crock Pot instead of the oven having to be turned on.

So these are just four of the many, many recipes I copied down from this book to try.  I look forward to trying the rest in the next couple weeks.  This was such a winner of a cookbook, I may gift it to a sister-in-love or niece next Christmas!
