About the Author

Dawn Hall self-published her first cookbook when she needed to raise money to pay for her late husband's cancer treatment. Since then she has more than 1 million copies of her cookbooks in print. Her books contain simple, great-tasting dishes for busy people who like to eat real, everyday food. Her books also help to motivate and inspire healthy eating and healthy lifestyles.

More About the Author

Our family's personal story of triumph over tragedy is used to give God all the praise and glory with the hope that readers will feel encouraged, inspired, refreshed; and that they too can overcome the unthinkable.

Points:
1) God can do far greater things through you than you have ever thought of, dreamed of, or imagined if you allow God and His will to be #1 in your life;
2) Thankfulness is an attitude you choose to have;
3) God still does miracles;
4) All things are possible - even what appears to be the impossible is possible;
5) Keep your eyes totally focused on God lest you become overwhelmed and depressed.

Sit back, laugh and relax while reading this amazing and true story behind the success of award winning author and inspirational speaker, Dawn Hall. With humor, energy and insight she shares her most intimate and personal details of how she triumphed over such tragedies as her husband's brain cancer, two house fires, financial bondage, depression, fighting the government, and the loss of her loving 38 year old husband. "I am an ordinary woman whom God has done extraordinary things through, far greater than I have ever hoped of, dreamed of or imagined! If God can do it through me, He can do it through you, too!"

Without knowing how to type, use a computer or anything about publishing Dawn Hall sold over 650,000 of her self-published cookbooks and won three national awards including 1996, 1998 Best Cookbooks of the Year award by North American Book Dealers exchange, 2000 Pinnacle award. Her amazing story of triumphing over tragedies such as cancer, financial bondage, two house fires and her young husband's death is proof that God is still doing miracles. Her faith, and persistence not to give up trying, is a source of hope, strength and encouragement to anyone who has ever felt down, discouraged, in financial bondage or has been fighting cancer and struggling in life.

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!

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.

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 bought this book, because I watch Dawn Hall on Direct TV ch.378 (NRB) on Thursday mornings at 7am and on Saturdays at 12 noon (PST).

I love this cookbook so much, in fact, so much that I'm going to order her slow-cooker book, too. Also, I am going to purchase a second 30-minute menus cookbook for my 24 year old daughter.
I know that it will help her feed her family.

The fruit of your labors are paying off in big dividends to us all.

Thank you, Dawn Hall!

Keep writing these great cookbooks.

The book has great recipes and the meals I have cooked have been completed in around 30 minutes. Some of the items for the recipes are expensive, but I found alternatives that taste just as great. I recommend making the Tamale Pie. I like that it is lower in fat and it tasted wonderful!

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!!

Format: Paperback
This book is great! Until I tried the recipes in this book, I would usually make the main entree and then because I couldn't figure out what would be good with it, heat up a can of vegetables as the side dish. This takes all the difficult parts out of cooking weeknight meals -- the shopping list is there, the equipment list is there, the time to start each step is there, and in approximately 30 minutes, I'm able to put more than an entree and a can of warmed-up veggies on the table. Plus the meals are healthy -- I'm on Weight Watchers and my honey's diabetic -- so I'm able to make great-tasting meals that are both low in points and low in carbs! When is the author writing Volume 2 of "Busy People's Super Simple 30-Minute Menus"? Soon, I hope!
