A Year with Six Sisters’ Stuff Cookbook

Who doesn’t love a brand new cook book filled with fabulous pictures, and easy to use recipes? I’m excited to review, A Year with Six Sisters’ Stuff, 52 Menu Plans, recipes, and Ideas to bring families together.

Six Sisters' Stuff Cookbook

First, let me say that I know and love each of the Six Sisters personally. I photographed them last year, and am really close with sister #2, KRISTEN! It’s a good thing she spells her name the right way, or maybe we wouldn’t be as good of friends!

I was so excited to flip through this book, and I love the layout of 52 menu’s. That’ a main dish, side, and dessert for each menu/day.

Check out the sticky notes I put in for the recipes I want to try soon:


Only a few.

One of my favorites was Menu #21:

  • Creamy Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes
  • Honey BBQ Meatloaf
  • Butterfinger blondies

Hello, Butterfinger Blondies??? Yes, please!!

Reading through the Coconut Shrimp recipe:

My husband and I have a recent love affair with sweet potatoes. Who knew they were so good for you, more so than “regular” potatoes? Baked Sweet Potato Fried, right on menu #1.

What about No-Bake Reese’s Fudge Bars? Okey Dokey.

Though it’s filled with lots of fabulous recipes, there are some fun surprises mixed into the pages besides recipes that I really enjoyed. Here is a little glimpse as to what that is:

  • 52 dinner conversation starters (I’m a sucker for anything that will get my kids to talk)
  • List of pantry staples (always interesting to see what I should have that I don’t)
  • 52 weeks of food storage  (I see the importance of storing food for emergencies, this provides a shopping list/plan to work up to a great supply)
  • how to make a menu board (cute DIY craft idea perfect for when kids want to know, “What’s for dinner??” Just point to the board)
  • measurement conversion chart (I simply can’t remember how many quarts in a  liter, etc.)
  • traditions with their family around service, birthday fun, and gratitude (some really cute traditions shared around birthdays and other holidays)
  • Tips on how to throw a “crazy dinner” that your kids will LOVE!  (I gotta do this soon!)

And one more with the cover (because my son took 50)

  1. I have to say your recipe for Ham and Swiss crepes has me drooling. Our kitchen is currently ripped out but it is at the top of my list of things to make once I can cook again. (And I always appreciate all your photo tip posts)

  2. I would love this! I love that it isn’t just a cookbook but that it has meal plans and tradition ideas and conversation starters! I am also a sucker for getting my kids to talk to me.
