Homemade Convenience Foods E-book Review & Giveaway


*Giveaway ended, winner is here.

I came upon Marcia Washburn on the Homeschool Channel while looking through videos.  I really loved her lecture and that is where I heard about her e-book: Homemade Convenience Foods.  She graciously gave me a free copy to review.  It came right on time because the day after I got it, I found out I was pregnant!  Homeschooling with a newborn will be new for me and I will no doubt need some convenience foods ready in 15 minutes or less.  The e-book comes up nicely on my Kindle Fire as well as the computer.  If you would rather have a non-electronic version, she also offers a printed comb-bound copy.

If you follow her plan, you will have meals that can be fixed anytime in 15 minutes or less.  She tells you about the method, what you need, how to do it and also gives you recipes.  It is a short e-book but a wealth of information is contained in these 34 pages.  Pages 6-15 contain the method and how-to and pages 16-33 contain the recipes.

It does involve some freezer cooking but not the way that I do it, her method is unique as she tailors it to meals that will be ready in 15 minutes or less.  To make convenience foods at home without buying them from the store will save, not only money, but you and your family's health.  I believe I will start using this method to have some extra meals on hand to make in a hurry instead of heading to fast food or take-out!

She is offering a free e-book to giveaway to one of my readers.  Simply leave a comment with your name to enter.  When I announce the winner next week, you will need to email me to claim the prize.  Giveaway ends on April 11, 2012 at midnight PST.  Giveaway ended, winner is here.

You can purchase the e-book on sale until April 20th for $4.99.  You can also get a printed comb-bound version for $5.99 plus $2 shipping and handling.  If you purchase the book and then win this giveaway, she will give you a refund.

Did you want to enter the giveaway DeNeice? You didn't mention it in your comment.

Thank you for checking in on on me! I'm very sick in a good way - a pregnant way lol. Nausea to the umph degree, dizziness, cravings and lots of fatigue. This is worse than with my first! Today was the worst so far, I just hope it gets better - feels like I have the flu all the time lol. It will be worth it when I hold my new baby though!! :)
