By Dawn C. Hall on November 9, 2007
Format: Paperback
As the author of Busy People's Super Simple Menus Cookbook, I wanted to submit the e-mails I have recieved from two people who have purchased this new book. Here is what two busy people have to say...

I bought a few of Dawn Hall's cookbook about three weeks ago and they changed my life. That may sound a bit dramatic but it's true.

I don't really "like" to cook and I'm very busy so planning meals was a real challenge for me. As a result we used to eat a lot of frozen dinners, fast food and expensive restaurant food. Now we eat cost-effective, good, nutricious meals. The way this cookbook is laid out with minute by minute preparation instructions and grocery lists I can do it. Each member of my family picks one meal, I plan the other 2-3, go to [...] to print the grocery lists and I'm set for the week.

There used to be nights, just three short weeks ago, when I would go to bed feeling like a bad mother and wife because I couldn't be super mom ... work, get the kids everywhere, help with homework and fix supper. With the help of this (and other Dawn Hall cookbooks) I can do it all now without as much effort as I used to put into waiting for "fast" food.

Tonight, I had a dinner party. One of my guests is a very well-known caterer in our town and he loved it.

I served:
Taco Vegetable Soup
Sweet and Spicy Tossed Salad
Southwestern Chicken Pasta Casserole and
Taco Biscuit Buttons.

I asked my mom to take my kids out for dinner to make it easier for me while I prepared for the party and my daughter was upset! That cracked me up ... when is a teenager upset about going out to eat. I'll tell you when ... when her mom uses Dawn Hall cookbooks. Anyhow, the meal was a hit.

We eat together as a family more.

I hosted a bridal shower luncheon for my soon-to-be sister-in-law and wanted to make a great impression. I'm pretty good at planning events, but I'm lousy at making food, so was in a quandary until the 30-Minute-Menu cookbook saved me! In it I found the perfect menu for my luncheon, start to finish, and it was a huge hit! With the timings spelled out, I was able to coordinate the entire event seamlessly. No waiting, no soggy sandwiches, no missing ingredients or last-minute dashes to the store. And Dawn has a great knack for finding flavors that combine well together. What a great tool!

Bad ingredients: every meal in here calls for canned pre-made ingredients, boxes of pre-mixed cooking items, and SPLENDA IN ALMOST EVERY MEAL. Along with things like "immitation butter sprinkles", eck, please cook using real ingredients! This is basically like Hamburger Helper in book form.

I am a busy man with not much time to cook, but I love to eat good food. So I gave Dawn's Hall book a chance and I love those recipes! I'm usually not much of a recipe-following man, always improvising and having to do with what's at hand, however I followed her recipes and the meals were delicious. Her way for presentation, with every step clearly spelled out and to the minute is ingenious, and the final results, the meals are very tasty and satisfying. I loved in particular her Savory Pork Tenderloin. Yummy!!
This cookbook is so cool!

I absolutely LOVE this cookbook!! I choose my menus at the start of the week, jot down what I need (the grocery lists are on each page how simple is that?!)head to the store and I am set for the week! No more running to the store every day to pick up needed items for dinner!(saves gas too!)
Preparation is a snap and the meals are balanced and taste great! My family loves Dawn Halls recipes! In fact, hers are the only cookbooks I own!! You will never regret having this, or any of the other "Busy People's" cookbooks at your fingertips!
