One of my favorite websites out there is called Dinner: A Love Story. I love it for the recipes of course, but I also love it for the smart and sassy writing…Jenny tells dinner like it is, with all of the happiness and hiccups. Her website is full of gorgeous pictures, recipes that you actually CAN make on ridiculously busy Tuesday night, and her writing is an easy, breezy conversation that makes you feel better about that night that yes, you did feed your family canned chili over corn chips. Because there’s always tomorrow to make her delectable recipe for spinach, tomato and feta frittata. So when I heard she had a cookbook coming out, there was pretty much no question what my May Cookbook Sunday Giveaway would be.
This is Jenny.
She is a girl after my own heart, because not only is she totally okay with the whole concept of frozen pizza when you have to and monogrammed mini pot pies when you can, she has kept a dinner diary of every single supper she’s eaten since February 22, 1998. My little obsessive heart can totally identify. She also has a bulletin board that looks like this…
Which is deliriously close to my own bulletin board that has my Penzey’s “Love People, Cook Them Tasty Food” bumper sticker on it. Food bumper stickers. It’s a thing.
Back at the book, it is full of all the things I love about her website – the delightful writing, the mouthwatering pictures, and a whole lot of recipes like Grandma Jody’s Chicken.
You want this book. Trust me.
Oh yeah, you do.
And I have three copies to give away! Leave me a comment telling me what you love best about family dinners..the good, the bad and the ugly…and at the end of the month I will do a random pick of three lucky folks who will get this gem of a book. My current favorite thing? Listening to the non-stop patter of my home-from-college-for-the-summer Southern daughter. She’s currently talking me through why I really should be wearing eyeliner. The things you learn at the dinner table!
