Cook, craft, and create with recipes, projects, and ideas from the enormously popular blog SixSistersStuff.com. Camille, Kristen, Elyse, Stephanie, Lauren, and Kendra are six sisters who share their easy, affordable recipes and crafts in this collection of family favorites. These pages contain more than 80 tried-and-true recipes that use ingredients commonly found in your pantry, with easy-to-follow instructions and photographs of each dish. Charming do-it-yourself projects, such as stained Mason Jars and a Ruffles and Yarn Wreath, are fun to create and require little time or money. Suggestions for indoor activities for kids, healthy snack ideas, or an inexpensive night out are among the many lists included in the book. "When we started our blog it was a way for all of us to stay in touch, to keep our relationships strong, and to share our ideas about cooking and running a home. Holiday dinners are fixed times on everyone’s busy calendars to slow down and put family first. My best advice to home cooks, whether you’re just starting out or hosting a giant dinner party, is to plan ahead! The day of the holiday should be about enjoying each other’s company, not racing around cooking and putting together unfamiliar ingredients. You can still prepare a show-stopper Christmas dinner by planning your time well in advance and determining what you want to emphasize: elaborate cooking or maybe personalized decorations for the table or a theme based on family traditions. Putting time into thoughtful planning is a wonderful way to tell your family and guests how much you love them."
