Y’all know that I have written several eBooks and there’s one that I have had “almost” finished for so long Top Girl is going to brain me if I don’t get it finished. But today, I am here to talk with you about a lovely new eBook, just released today by the ladies over at the Weekend Potluck Linky Party. If you have never visited Weekend Potluck, here is the link for 10/12/2012 so you can see how wonderful it is! I am always so happy to visit – of course I link up – but on Sunday afternoons, I spend some time checking out the recipes and blogs who also link up. I have used many of the recipes I’ve found there: some from the linkers like me, and many more from the Potluck Ladies.
This week, there is a great offer for the purchase of a collaborative effort between the six 6 ladies in the form of an eBook called: Weekend Potluck Fall Favorites Cookbook. The book is chock full (90 pages) of recipes using regular food items that would entice even the most picky of eaters. You will find a beautiful presentation photograph of each recipe with “cook’s notes” at the end, offering special side notes to help you make the recipe successfully. I particularly enjoyed being able to download the cookbook to my laptop and then maximize the size. It makes the words 139% so I can read it in the kitchen without hunting all over the place for my reading glasses. Another plus is the ability to click on the cartoon caption icon at the top and make notes out to the side of each recipe. There is also the ability to highlight particular lines or cook’s notes – they both work fine because I used them.
The six ladies who make up Team Weekend Potluck live all over the US from the Southwest, to the Midwest, over to the Ohio River, up by our country’s capitol, and way down south in Florida! (Gosh I felt like I was singing God Bless America in my head while I was trying to remember where everyone lived!) From what I have gathered by following them, each one is not only in a different part of the country, but they are in different stages of life. All are married and have children, a few grown but mostly school aged. Some work outside the home, some don’t. There are a variety of special diets and tastes represented within these families. I believe one needs gluten free in her home and one must have lower sugar in hers. You can find something (really more than one thing) for everyone in this book! Page 91 – 96 of the book contains pictures, bios, and links to all the social media that each one participates in.
Technically speaking, one of the biggest selling points of this eBook is that the Table of Contents is linkable! How convenient. It makes a world of difference if you can just click on the title of a recipe from the Table of Contents and head straight there instead of scrolling and scrolling and scrolling! After each recipe, you will find a clickable link to the contributor’s blog. I found some old favorites like The Country Cook’s Easy Apple Dumplings and some new recipes I had not seen before like 4 Little Ferguson’s Easy Bierocks – I can’t wait to try those! This book holds recipes for Breakfasts & Breads, Appetizer’s & Beverages, Side Dishes, Salads & Vegetables, Soup, Stews, & Chili, Main Dishes, and Sweet Treats. All for $4.99 – what a deal! But wait! If you order in the next 19 days – that’s by October 31, 2012 – you can use the Coupon Code “AUTUMN” and receive $1 off – so it only costs you $3.99. You may use your Pay pal account or a credit card. You can get the book here: It takes less than 30 seconds from start to finish! Go on – just do it!!
I love a coupon – use them all the time! And I did today as well. I paid for my book as soon as I read about it. No one asked me to review the cookbook, I did this of my own free will and I am receiving nothing in return.
What a FANTASTIC review! Thanks sweet friend! 🙂
You are welcome! I hope that it helps those on the line about ordering right away or waiting…….
Kelli – wow. I mean wow! I am speechless. What an amazing review. I don’t think I could have summed it up better myself. Thank you for pointing out all the highlights for folks who may be thinking about buying this eCookbook. And thank you for always being one of our biggest cheerleaders. We appreciate ya more than words can say!! ((HUGS)) ~Brandie

I love the review…..I ordered my book last night and downloaded it…..I haven’t had a chance to look through it very much, but after reading your review, it’s going to the top of my list for tomorrow afternoon (after my nap) I love the ladies that I know from the cookbook….don’t know them all, but they have such sweet spirits. Blessings and Hugs!
Thank you so much for dropping by – it IS a great recipe book and I am going to make Tonia’s (4 Little Ferguson’s) Easy Beirdocks tonight myself! 🙂 Come back anytime!
Thanks so much Kelli for such a sweet review! So happy that you liked our little cookbook. It was so much fun to put together. Have a terrific week and thanks again for being such a friend to us!
Thank YOU guys for all you have done for me! I hope you sell a million!!
I’m so new to the ebook world Kelli, you are really opening my eyes to the value and convenience of them. I love all the ladies from Weekend Potluck and have made several of Brandie’s recipes. I’ll be ordering this in the morning!
So glad Joan!! My daughter is such a “book worm” and said she would never go over “to the other side”, but her husband (out of desperation) bought her a Kindle for Christmas last year and it was so convenient and took up so much less space than a shelf of books, she has fallen in love with them! I like being able to read books on my laptop – for the bigger print! 🙂 I think when you buy their book, you will find many great pointers in there! 🙂
Wow, I am impressed. I am also checking this out now.
I love Weekend Potluck – those ladies can cook! BTW, if you haven’t been to El Fenix (I”m still high from the great salsa ha!) you gotta’ go south and check it out!
