New Year, New Dreams

New Year, New Dreams

It’s a new year and a fresh start. I hope it’s going to be a great year for everyone. I have high hopes for this year, because I have a lot of business ideas and plans that I’m so excited to share.

The first is my second cookbook. You’ll be hearing a lot about this in the near future. I absolutely love how it’s looking so far, and I think it will be even better than my first book.

Another project I’m working on is a podcast. It’s still in the working stages, but in a few weeks—maybe a month—you’ll get all the information.

I’m also working on other Supersize Family Kitchens branded products. I’m in the process of getting my online store up and running, and most of my products will also be on Amazon.

AND… I want to see my products on store shelves. My product line will actually be pretty extensive if everything goes the way it’s supposed to.

Also I want to do more author events—book signings, cooking demonstrations, cook-offs, whatever.

So that’s the fun part. Now for the serious part: New Year’s Resolutions.

I haven’t made a new year’s resolution in about seven years. But this year, I made one.


What are priorities, really? I guess that to prioritize means to make choices between all of the things that you want and need to do, and making the most of those choices while trying not to feel guilty because maybe you should have made something else a priority instead of what you chose.

That’s not easy. Sometimes it’s painful because I have so many places that I need to spend my time and money, and so many people that I need to be with. Whether it’s time or money or people, I always have the same problem: I don’t want to pick between two good things. I want both of them. Most of the time, by the time I’ve figured out which one I want, neither one is available to pick from. I wish I didn’t have to sleep because I could get so much more work done in those six hours. #writerslife

Blogging has been very sporadic this winter because I’ve been working on other projects—especially this new cookbook—but I’m ready to get back to work and start connecting with my awesome blog readers.

You guys are great. I’ll see you all this year. Maybe in a bookstore near you.

If you want to keep up with all of my projects and get recipes in your inbox every week, sign up for my e-mail list here.  I'll send you a free e-cookbook, "The Frugal Family's Guide to the Kitchen." Some of the recipes are from my published cookbook, The Supersize Family's Guide to the Kitchen, but many are exclusive, previously unpublished recipes.

Upcoming Event

Scenic Riverways Arts & Crafts Festival

October 14-15

Circle B Campground

Eminence, Mo

This is an AMAZING craft show—one of the biggest in southern Missouri. Thousands of people attend the festival every year, and over 100 booths are there to shop at. I’ll be there this year at the Supersize Family kitchens booth! I’ll have cookbooks for sale and I’ll be signing them as well (if you already have Guide to the Kitchen, bring it along and I’ll sign it for you). Guide to the Kitchen will be $10 each, but you can snag one cheaper with the coupon below.

PLUS, I’ll be doing a giveaway at my booth! Put your name and e-mail address in the mason jar, and after the show I’ll pick a winner at random to win a Guide to the Kitchen gift set valued at $15! It includes a potholder, oven mitt, and dish towel in a cute pattern, plus a signed copy of my cookbook.

AND…. For entering to win, you’ll also get my free e-cookbook “The Frugal Family’s Guide to the Kitchen.” Is that a great plan, or what???

My sister Chelsea will be joining me, and she’ll have handcrafted doll clothes and accessories for sale at my booth. Her little doll blankets are just adorable and come in endless colors and patterns—everything from girly princesses to boyish cartoony monsters to chevron to Navajo to polka dot.

Here is the coupon. Print this out or save it to your phone, and show it at my booth and you’ll get the cookbook for only $9.

May, June, July Recipe Roundup

As the title above says, here is a roundup of every recipe I’ve posted since starting this blog in late May. The pictures in the collage are numbered so you know which picture goes with which recipe. My favorites are Frozen Strawberry Limeade, Cranberry Cheesecake Bars, and Sauteed Brussels Sprouts.

My plan is to post recipe roundups every other month, so look for another one at the end of September. Have fun catching up on your Supersize Family recipes!

These recipes and over 100 more can be found in my cookbook, The Supersize Family’s Guide to the Kitchen, available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and many other bookstores and online stores worldwide. Each recipe serves at least ten people—some, up to twenty. It’s great for potlucks, reunions, or big families (like mine!)

You can subscribe to the email list at the bottom of the page, and receive a FREE e-cookbook, The Frugal Family’s Guide to the Kitchen. It’s a special collection of money-saving recipes (some are from Guide to the Kitchen and some are exclusive).

BTW I also wrote several non-recipe posts during May, June, and July, so go look them up, too. My favorites were the post about my 1950’s Handy Hannah hairdryer, and the DIY How To Stretch Slightly Small Shoes.
