Perfectionists don’t get things done very quickly, which means our to-do lists are a mess, but (hopefully) everything else isn’t.
I’ve been working on getting The Everything Beans Book in a print edition for a full YEAR now, and I’m super excited to announce that it is ready!!!
First I had to tweak the old cover to fit the print style better.
Then I ordered a proof, and it just didn’t look good at all.
Back to the drawing board – finding time to take an hour photo shoot with beans (they’re good subjects, always smiling right on time), get the photos edited and brightened, test out a million versions, get the size right, etc. etc. etc.
That took most of the summer!
Then I had to find all the little problems in the book and fix the formatting so it was inscrutable to the nth degree.
AND I realized that, since I’ve been cooking these recipes for 3+ more years since the book came out, I’ve figured out shortcuts, adaptations, new ways to make things gluten-free, etc.
The recipes are updated with even more options, and I think you’re going to love having a REAL copy of the book – one you can take into your kitchen and mark up, make notes, turn page corners and more.
I find that I really appreciate having cookbooks in print editions because then (ahem) I don’t get sucked into Facebook (or anything else) because I have to turn on a screen to find a recipe.
And a Bonus!
If you buy The Everything Beans Book from Amazon by the time Lent starts – February 21st, a few days after Ash Wednesday – send me your receipt to katie @ kitchenstewardship.com, and each Saturday we’ll send back a free meal plan using the recipes in the book. You can jump right in as soon as the book arrives!
- grocery shopping lists
- prep checklists
- tips to use leftovers
- 2 weeks, 3 meals per week
- plus some extras outside of dinners!
You’ll save money, eat well, and your family will love your cooking.
Here’s to beans!
One More Sale for an Eat Well New Year
I know many of you have made new resolutions to eat better, save money, or be more organized this year.
It’s January 26th – not the most popular time to be talking about resolutions, but perhaps the most important.
Because a ton of people have probably already fallen down on their goals.
And they’re going to forget that it’s OKAY to start over anytime if no one reminds them!
If you haven’t eaten as perfectly as you were hoping in the last couple weeks, don’t despair. It’s not like you have to wait until January 2016 to try again, you know?
You might just need some resources to help you stick to your goals. The beans book and meal plan are a GREAT place to start, but if you want something in your hands ASAP, I’m also putting my eBooks on sale.
They’re written with rookie cooks in mind, with no stone left unturned when it comes to questions you might have about a recipe or how to put it together, how it should turn out.
This week (through Saturday, January 31st) you can get 40% off your order when you buy two or more items (including already-discounted packages!).
Add any two or more items to your cart at the eBook store and use the code EATWELL2015 and you’ll immediately get 40% off.
That’s a great deal on some great books.
If you don’t need them for yourself, I hope you’ll consider passing along the thought to a friend you know is working hard to transform their kitchen to real food. They’ll thank you later (maybe with a gift of power bars from my Healthy Snacks to Go eBook if you’re lucky).
Any questions, ask in the comments – I have a full money-back happiness guarantee on all my eBooks, so it’s risk free.
To your health!
