A couple of months ago I was excited to host a guest post by Mandi Ehman of Life...Your Way. I have been a big fan of her blogging network for a while. I've learned great tips from the tech channel, gotten myself organized with printables from their vast collection, enjoyed stories and support for mothering in the family channel, and found good ideas for simple, heathy food in the food channel. And if it wasn't enough to run a great company, Mandi is just a really nice person.
This week Mandi released a new ebook called Easy. Homemade. and sent me a review copy and invited me to join her affiliate program (the links to the book in this post are all affiliate links).
The book's focus on pantry staples - those things we often buy but don't have to. The recipes cover drinks, seasoning, condiments, snacks and a few base recipes that can be expanded or modified easily. Many recipes are things I keep in my house all the time - pesto, simple syrup, freezer jam - and some are things I've thought about making, but have been too lazy too. A few of these things I've never thought about making from scratch, like onion soup mix and baking mixes. In addition to the recipes, Mandi has included tons of great tips and extras throughout the book, like how to use applesauce as a substitute for oil, how to test baking powder and baking soda, and suggestions on how to organize your spice drawer.
These recipes are so straightforward that I'm inspired to make a few more of these things for my own pantry.
But the best part? Until Augsut 21st, the book is available for the launch price of only $.99. And there are bonuses! You'll receive a set of printable recipe cards, the Nook and Kindle files to load to those devices and access to all of the recipes from the book on PlantoEat.com. Can't beat that!
