Menus on a Dime: Quick Dinners Review by Leslie Valeska

Jill Cooper and Tawra Kellam

In this e-book Jill Cooper and Tawra Kellam give quality information on planning and preparing quick meals. Instead of offering the encyclopedia version of how, when, and where to do this, they keep the format clear and concise (something I appreciate and enjoy).

Inside you will find information pertaining to freezing food (this is a must read), kitchen maintenance, food preparation, desserts, and lots of recipes and menus. The authors expand on their vision of spending 30 minutes or less on meal preparation. I can recommend this e-book for everyone from novices to veterans in the homemaking world. I appreciate the variety of items that are included in the menus. And many of their tips are things that I have found to be tried and true. This book is simple and includes tons of advice that is often overlooked or forgotten. Whenever I read about homemaking and come away refreshed and with new ideas, I know the resource is a value to the homemaker. Whether you need a refresher or are just starting out, this is worth every penny of the $5.95 price. Couple this book with the authors' Grocery Savings e-book and you have the perfect set of resources to get your food budget and meals in order.
