If you’ve had your eye on one of the KS eBooks or perhaps wondered if they were any good, you won’t want to wait any longer.
The "Bundle of the Week" this week is all books from this site, an exclusive package, and it’s only $7.40 (through Monday, 5/27 at 8 a.m. only).
That’s a crazy good deal.
I’ve also just added sneak peek excerpts to each book, so you can really get a taste of what you’ll be getting with a purchase. Find them on each individual product page:
- Healthy Snacks to Go
- The Everything Beans Book
- Smart Sweets
- The Family Camping Handbook (this preview is the free download for the monthly newsletter, including 10 printable recipe cards and 3 grain-free or Paleo meal plans, perfect for camping or any summer weekend)
- If you’re already on the newsletter list, the system is smart enough that you can get the freebies by entering your email address again but you won’t get duplicate copies to the same inbox.
The excerpts all include a bit of the introductory section plus at least 2 recipes, including one of the more popular ones from Healthy Snacks.
For less than the price of one book, you can get a bundle of FIVE of them, and if you really want Better Than a Box, you can get all my eBooks for about what only that one would cost. See details HERE.
All purchasers will receive a 50% off code for Better Than a Box, which means that even if you just want that book, you can get 6 books for the price of one.
If you have some of my eBooks and want to complete your collection, you can gift the duplicates to friends and family, which could be a great way to ease someone into real food. My recipes tend to be super thorough for the rookie (and yet still unique enough that the seasoned real food chef can find something new to create).
What About Better Than a Box?
I don’t have an excerpt available for my newest book, Better Than a Box, but it’s coming. For today, I’m honored and humbled to share an email I received this month from someone who grabbed the book during launch week and didn’t know what to expect. Her email, which of course I opened immediately out of curiosity, was titled:
Better than a box changed my life
"Okay, I know my subject line may sound a bit extreme, but it’s true! I downloaded Better Than A Box onto my Kindle months ago (no doubt when it was on a special sale, cause let’s be honest, I’m a cheapskate) but – to be completely honest – did not get around to reading it. Anyways, a couple weeks ago I was looking for something to read on my Kindle/phone while sitting in my son’s room waiting for him to fall asleep and thought "hey, I actually paid money for this book – I should look at it!" Of course at the time I thought it was just a cookbook, so I’d just skim a few recipes and move on. Then I actually opened the book.
I couldn’t put it down. I loved your lessons in reverse engineering and your friendly and encouraging tone as you described your processes and pushed me to experiment. I’ve always been a "glued-to-the-recipe" cook, but since I’ve read your advice I’ve felt so much freer to take chances in the kitchen.
The other night I decided to make cheesy vegetables loosely based on your cheese sauce instructions, so I melted some butter and mixed in flour – then realized I was out of milk! While in times past this would have perhaps led to panic and tossing out flour paste, this time I thought "Katie says I can do this – I’ll just improvise."
My first thought was to use broth instead, but I was out of that too (I know, I know, I should check my ingredients BEFORE starting to cook). My thinking then went something like this "Well, I could use a bouillon cube . . . but I really don’t want to go there after what I just read . . . well broth is basically flavored water, so . . . I’ll use water and flavor it with spices!" So I mixed in some water, then looked up your suggestions for vegetable seasonings and didn’t have them, so went with a bit of this and a bit of that, thickened it up, mixed in the frozen veggies, and added a couple handfuls of mozzarella cheese cause "cheese makes everything better."
My pan was a mess cause I didn’t turn off the heat when I added the cheese, but my pickiest (and least veggie-consuming) kid at multiple serving of the "creamy vegetables" and asked if I was going to put the recipe (which of course I had to brag that I’d made up) on Pinterest.
I’ve started shredded extra cheese & carrots and have already had that come in handy on another night – the more I realize how much easier these little steps simplify my life (or at least cooking), the more motivated I become to do them. I’ve started throwing random bits of veggies into a "soup" bag in the freezer, which I’ve never done before, and am hoping to try using it to make a version of your potato veggie soup at some point. My one chicken’s worth of bones made 6 or 7 bags of good broth and about that much again very light broth that I’m planning to use as veggie broth. Now I just need to learn how to organize my freezer so I can keep track of and fit all these useful prep items!
Anyways, that was all a very long way to say thank you for empowering me to experiment in the kitchen and enjoy the adventure. I’ve been telling everyone around me about this great cookbook I’ve been reading (maybe I should start saying textbook).
Thank you again for inspiring me and bringing joy back to my kitchen,
P.S. I also made your tuna noodle casserole and a friend who remembered her mom’s tuna noodle casserole loved it (even though mine was kinda brown cause of my dark homemade broth).
The KS bundle is only available for one week, and after 8 a.m. next Monday (Memorial Day), this price will never happen again (and no late sales).
Take a few days to consider it if you need to, but don’t miss out!

Watch for today’s Monday Mission at lunchtime, one that I think is super fun and perfect for summer…and I hope it’s a good challenge for the rookie and the veteran!
