Oh, For Real: Real Food, Real Family, Real Easy

 

ForRealBookCover6

We feel that it is very important for this book to be in print, in your hands, and right in front of you in your kitchen. In fact, I can’t wait to have it in front of me in my own kitchen! It is the resource so many of us (including me!) have been needing for so long!

Because this kitchen resource is designed to be your “go-to” book, we chose to have it professionally printed and spiral bound. Oh, For Real is printed in full color, on 8 1/2 x11 inch pages – with pictures, tutorials, information, and of course – lots of recipes. It isn’t fancy. It isn’t overwhelming. It’s just me sharing “how I do it” when it comes to feeding my family a healthy diet on a limited budget and with limited time.

This book includes my most treasured recipes that I use all the time. I’ve shared many of them through the years on my blog, but to have them all together in one handy book? This is so helpful!  These are the recipes that help me feed my family healthy food without breaking my neck in the kitchen. These are the recipes that keep my freezer stocked with ready-to-grab meals and snacks. These are the recipes my family loves. (Even the family members who are picky!)

In addition to all the recipes and helpful information we’ve organized in the book, you will find “Real Quick Tips” sprinkled all throughout, which will provide you with simple ideas for getting ahead and saving time in the kitchen.

RealQuickTip2

Each time you see the “Freezer Friendly” button in the book, you can learn with a quick glance how to prepare that particular recipe for the freezer, and how to reheat it when you are ready to serve it.

FreezerFriendly2

What will you find in Oh, For Real?

  • Over 115 healthy, real food breakfast, lunch, supper, casserole, slow cooker, and snack recipes that will save you time, money and sanity
  • Versatile mixes and whole grain dough recipes that offer loads of healthy recipe options with little to no effort
  • Freezer cooking ideas and instructions to help you actually get ahead in the kitchen
  • Last minute (healthy) meal ideas, because for real, you don’t have to resort to ordering pizza in a pinch
  • More information about my family and me than you ever really needed to know. We are real.  :)

Care to take a little peek inside? Click here for a preview.

This 100 page book is being printed for the absolute best price we could find for the high quality, full color pages we desired. (Black and white just wouldn’t cut it on this!) It has a plastic cover to protect it in your kitchen, and my favorite feature: spiral binding so that it will open up and lay flat on your kitchen counter while you’re using it.

This is not a book you will read once and stuff on your shelf, never to be read again. This is more than a cookbook. Oh, For Real is your real food resource – the book you will reference over and over as you develop and/or maintain your healthy, whole foods kitchen.

Our price includes shipping, so no need to figure in additional postage to the price below. If you are from outside the U.S., please email me regarding additional shipping fees. 

Wait no longer! Order your copy right away!

    Just pre-ordered the book…YAY! Is there an expiration date on the BONUS $10.00 certificate? I am in the processes of putting my e-books in seperate folders, and would like to wait and see what I have, and what I don’t have. Hope I can wait a few more weeks on using the certificate – please let me know Laura.

    Congratulations on your book, and may it be very successful!

    I have the same question.

    [Reply]

    Laura Reply:

    This book summarizes what the almost 3000 posts on my site have said, making it easier to find all of the information about freezer cooking and getting ahead in the kitchen. Plus it organizes all of the recipes in one easy spot. AND, there are additional recipes in the book that aren’t found on the website.

    Some may find that simply referencing my website and looking up the information and recipes needed works just fine. Ultimately, this book makes life easier. I personally am very excited to have all of this information in my hands so I can quickly flip through and check recipes as needed. :)

    Hope that helps answer the questions. Let me know if you have more!

    Ha! I should clarify. Not ALL of the recipes on my website are in the book. Just 115ish. :)

    It sounds like it is a great gift idea for someone starting out to eating healthier, but I’m super thrilled with your website and the ease of finding things quickly.

Thank you for all you do Laura and for sharing!

    Dear Laura,
    Have you thought of a downloadable version for your international readers? I’m afraid that shipping to France will cost as much as the book… Any hints? Will be very appreciated! Keep up the good work, you’re an inspiration! and a funny one by the way ;)

    I would like to order this, but I’m wondering what percentage of the recipes are gluten free, or easily adaptable? I get so many great recipes from your website, and cherish the gluten free ones!

    I would say that well over half of the recipes are GF, and many of the others are adaptables. :)

    I also thank you, Laura, for your time and effort in putting this book and all your information together to bless us. I have recently been “downsizing” my email acct., and have unsubscribed to most of the other unnecessary emails. Yours is the only blog I will continue to receive, as I find it practical, humorous and encouraging. I have been using so many of your recipes for the past few months, and was about to put all my miscellaneous recipes into a binder. Now I will wait to see which ones are in your new cookbook before I complete that task. I’m excited to have it all in one convenient place (and I still like a “real” book in my hands, esp. for cooking). I will recommend your new cookbook to others!

    Hello, I’ve just pre-ordered your book! I love your blog and your recipes. I use so many of them for my grandsons, ages 13 and 9. Big hits are the Giant Breakfast Cookies and Breakfast Cake. However, they like many of your real food meals as well, not just the “fun” stuff! Thank you so much for writing this book; I’m anxious to receive it, read about your “real” family, and have easy access to so many of your recipes. Keep up your good work!

    Laura,

    I would like to order a printed, paper copy. My daughter, however prefers to use her computer. Can I order my copy and then download a copy to her computer or flashdrive(whatever) using the $10 bonus? Would both copies be $25.95 each minus the $10 on the downloaded copy? You may e-mail me at the address used. Thanks, Carol

    [Reply]

    Laura Reply:

    We’re giving this some thought, mostly because we haven’t figured out a download price and policy yet. We are really encouraging printed copies because this book is best in printed form. Would you mind emailing me so that I can email you back just as soon as we’ve made our decision in a few days? Thank you!!

    Hello,
    We moved into our new home and are halfway unpacked, now I’m about to treat myself by ordering your book! Since my credit card has a separate address (billing) than my current address (shipping), it wouldn’t go through. I didn’t see a separate option for a shipping address. Please advise :) I know I may have to wait until I update my address.
    Thanks!

    Just wanted to thank you for compiling and PRINTING in a desirable format your best tips and recipes! So many Godly women have great things to share, but they often piece-meal it via e-books that have just never been user-friendly or complete enough. Having a printed version of your practical wisdom will be useful and something that will not be forgotten due to its inaccessibility. Blessings!

  36. Jennifer says

    Hi Laura,
    As follow-up, I received your new book, For Real, and was so pleased after reading it through. We have the same methods, but what I was lacking were good recipes using whole foods. So many of mine are my adaptations of recipes calling for AP flour, and they just aren’t the same.

    I tested my first two recipes of yours–Crispy Baked Chicken using your Ranch Dip Mix and your Fudgy Brownies. I have tried both of these from other sources before–big fails! BUT, yours were a hit! My Wonderbread-raised hubby was reluctant to even try the brownies. He looked at me skeptically and asked, “Do they have whole wheat?” I admitted that they did, and he waited until the children started raving about them to give them a try. He was won over.

    I love the simple way that you organized the information, making clear in which recipes each mix could be used, and giving clear instructions with each recipe, including freezing and reheating. I can’t wait to try more. Job well done!

    Hi Laura, I was wondering if you’re still considering offering your book as an eBook? I ask because I’ve recently reclaimed a whole cupboard in my kitchen by transferring all my favorite recipes to electronic copies, and I prefer to read books on a Kindle these days. I didn’t think it would happen to me, but it did ;)

    Hi Laura!

    I just bought the Ebook overload. I am wondering if this is much of the same in recipes, or are they different? I am considering ordering this one as well, but wouldnt want to if all the recipes are the same.

    Thank you for your time and resources!
    Blessings!

    [Reply]

    Laura Reply:

    Some of the recipes are the same, but for the most part, there isn’t much overlap. Plus, the information shared in the book is all different from those ebooks. This book shares how I get it all done, how I make food ahead, how I use the same recipes to make several different dishes…

    Hope that helps answer the question!

    I would say about half the recipes do have wheat in them, but are very basic type recipes that can be adapted easily. Otherwise, all the tips and information in the book applies to everyone, no matter what your dietary restrictions are. :)

    I just wanted to let you know that I adore your cookbook. I ordered it about 2 years ago and have been using it since. I love that the recipes are so simple my 11 year old can make them without any help from me. I love that there are only a few ingredients – SO SIMPLE! Love, love, love it. Thank you.
