Giveaway: $15 Amazon Gift Card – 3 Winners!

May 23, 2013


My friend Lori from has released her new ebook called, “Operation Dinner: How to Plan, Shop & Prep for Easy Family Meals” and it’s selling for $5.99 on Amazon. I bought this the first day it was released and read it in its entirety right away. It’s well-written, which makes it an easy read, but it’s full of so much helpful information. The book is set-up to teach you how to get several wonderful meals made for your family in little time. She teaches you about meal planning, freezer cooking, how to organize your kitchen and shares several recipes for each category of meat; such as beef, chicken and pork. She also goes into prep for fruits, vegetables, slow cooker recipes and even some special diet needs. There are even a few recipes for making your own mixes and sauces.

I have been freezer cooking for years now. I find that while it may take some time to plan out a freezer cooking session that the time is well worth it when you don’t have to cook for a week, or even a month. If you’ve been wanting to give it a try, this is a great book to help you get started.


Lori is running a promotion on her book until 5/30/13 that if you buy “Operation Dinner: How to Plan, Shop & Prep for Easy Family Meals,” you can also get a free copy of her other ebook, “Create Your Own Family Traditions: Over 70 Ideas for Making Lasting Memories.” (If you do buy it by then, make sure you read on her site how to get the other ebook for free. There’s a link there to the Operation Dinner ebook, too!)

I wanted to be able to share Lori’s new ebook with my readers so I am running this giveaway for 3 of my readers that win it to get a $15 Amazon Gift Card. This will be enough to even cover the paperback version, should they choose it. If you are planning on entering the giveaway, make sure your entries are on this post only.

Yes, I have done a little freezer cooking for my elderly parents. Mainly small casseroles they could pop in the oven. For my family, I’d like to start having more proportioned ingredients ready in the freezer.

I make cookie dough (flax farmland cookies) and freeze them, then cook as needed. I also freeze some very simple chilis (kale,chicken, bean) that only take 15 minutes to fix anyway. Super-efficient, and very healthy. :)
