SIX SISTERS’ STUFF COOKBOOK is a collection of recipes, children’s crafts and lists such as healthy snacks, date night ideas, and stuff to do to keep kids’ busy on car trips (and more).

We tried the black bean taco soup, the cheesy vegetable soup (with modifications, we didn’t have Velveeta on hand so we used shredded mild cheddar), the root beer cookies, and the breakfast casserole, because we did have the ingredients for them on-hand. It says the recipes all use common pantry items, but we don’t commonly have some of the things called for on hand for the recipes. I didn’t take pictures of the recipes. I should’ve. The cookies were interesting. Not great. I wouldn’t care to have them again. We all liked the black bean taco soup, the cheese soup, and the breakfast casserole. 

The children’s crafts and the lists were the best parts of the book – but even they weren’t super stupendous. Maybe if you never went on a long car trip with the kids, it’d be great, but for those who are used to traveling to see Grandma then they have their mental lists.

I wasn’t overly impressed with the book, but my best friend loved it. She’s a huge list-maker though, and it intrigued her to have lists of healthy snacks, 14 days of Valentines, and more. So, I’d say if you are a young mom and keep a lot of convenience foods on hand, and need ideas to keep your kids busy, or a date-night for you and the hubs, then this book is for you. If you’re more into homemade, old-fashioned cooking, have a huge family and have done it all – well you wouldn’t be as interested.

Oh and if you have a smart phone they have the little square bar codes so you can just scan it to go to get more recipes, instructions, and other great ideas. A great book for new moms and young moms.  $21.99. 200 pages. 4 stars.
