Author Bios:
The Six Sisters—Camille, Kristen, Elyse, Stephanie, Lauren, and Kendra—grew up in Utah, but a few of them have lived in other parts of the country since moving out of the house. Between them there are five nieces and three nephews, and all of the sisters love playing “aunt.” The sisters started the blog in February 2011 to keep in touch while they were apart, but it has since gained popularity, garnering more than 9 million viewers per month and more than 307,000 followers on Pinterest.


REVIEW:
I went through the book and was impressed with the recipes I saw. It was hard to choose which ones to pick to make, there was just so many I liked right away. So I grabbed my kid and went through it with him. Here are the things I chose to make, based on my chat with him.
Garlic Loaf
Garlic Loaf has got to be something that most people enjoy. Whenever we have pasta, I usually make a salad and serve garlic bread. I enjoyed this recipe, though I think I will opt to have no cheese next time.
Now what goes best with Garlic Loaf, why pasta of course! So I made this:
Cheeseburger Casserole
This Cheeseburger Casserole was really good, but the recipe in the book could have used more seasoning. Still, it was delicious and hearty. Perfect for the cold day we ate the meal on.
Lastly, I made dessert.
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are easy to make and taste amazing! Both my son and the hubster loved them. I admit, I ate a bunch too so its fair to say I enjoyed them too. 
So all three recipes were a hit, with minor adjustments to suit our tastes, of course.
Now what I really like about this cookbook, is how each 'recipe' is laid out. You actually get suggestions for the whole meal, like I made, from the appetizer, main course and dessert. Each 'menu' is a great idea and goes together well. Mind you mine are mixed up from 3 different menus, so you can switch them up if you want. I can't wait to try some more STUFF from it. I got many dog-eared pages to choose from.

  6. Love the idea of all the siblings writing a book (and blog!) together. Out of the three you made I'd opt to make the garlic loaf, I reckon, though the pasta looks interesting. Well done on What's In A Name. Fun choice!

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
