Weekend links: for your pantry & your sanity

Coming to you with two weekend ebook links today–for your pantry and your sanity, a good combination, right?!

For Your Pantry

My friend and fellow blogger, Mandi Ehman of Life Your Way, just released an awesome ebook called Easy. Homemade: Homemade Pantry Staples for the Busy Modern Family.

Here’s a description from Mandi:

Easy Homemade features recipes for more than 60 homemade kitchen staples as well as kitchen tips, information about choosing various ingredients and more.

As a self-proclaimed kitchen dunce, I’m far from an accomplished chef, but I’ve found that making things from scratch — even the things we typically buy without even considering that we could make them at home — is actually pretty easy.

I’m passionate about empowering other busy families to do the same with tried-and-true recipes that can be made with basic ingredients and don’t require a lot of time.”

The best part is that Mandi is offering Easy. Homemade. through August 21st (Tuesday) for just 99 cents!! Head here to find out more. You can also purchase directly for your Kindle or Nook.

For Your Sanity

Jessica Fisher, contributor here at Simple Homeschool and blogger at Life as Mom, has released A Simpler Season, an ebook to help you prepare for the winter holidays and stay sane at the same time!

A brief description:

“A guide to planning the winter holidays, A Simpler Season provides creative ideas , time-saving tips, and budget-minded inspiration for making the most of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. With the busy family in mind, I’ve provided recipes, to-do lists, children’s activity sheets, planning pages, gift ideas, and step-by-step tutorials for creating homemade gifts.

While much of the content has been previously available on Life as MOM, it has now been enhanced and packed into this book in a user-friendly way — with a lot of additional content thrown in for good measure. Printable pages that you might have seen before on Life as MOM have been expanded and made “fillable”.

Plus, there’s an entire section devoted to children’s holiday books and activities to do after you spend time reading with your peeps.”

Happy reading, friends!
