My Kitchen Chalkboard is a book about seasonal family dinners that offers year-round menu ideas and tips for meal planning, batch cooking, and other ideas for streamlining dinnertime.

I started planning our weekly menus when my 6-year-old was an infant, and quickly discovered that meal planning conserves time and saves money, cuts down on waste, and allows me to be creative and build my skills within a framework. This book grew out of those weekly menus.

You can read a blurb from The Boston Globe here. In June 2018, My Kitchen Chalkboard won an award for general excellence from The Readable Feast.

I'm super excited to share this book with you! I hope it will become a resource for anyone who is trying to juggle all the demands of work and family and still eat and cook well. 

The book is available online on Amazon/Barnes & Noble/Powell's/Harvard Book Store
