It’s an honest look into our marriage of nearly ten years and how we fumble through life together, with three kids and everything else that’s thrown alas, It’s real, funny, encouraging, tough and incredibly delicious. It is also an extension of the series I started on this site called, Dating My Husband. These posts are often my favorite to write and always the best to read your comments and emails in response to.
The book consists of 25 seasonal dates each having its own menu and a helpful plan to make creating this menu simple, even if you have a full-time job and children underfoot. Each recipe begins with the story from our date where I open up to you about our marriage — the joys, the trials and the work it takes to make it thrive.
