Perks and 3 free months.

I get to meet some pretty incredible people in the course of doing business.  I travelled 50 days this year for conferences, speaking engagments, publisher meetings and press meetings.  I think my kids know how to pack a suitcase. Being away from home is no fun but there are a lot of smart, productive women making a difference and getting to meet them is a huge perk.

Take for instance, Jane Kelly at  Jane had an idea about making cooking easier and now she delivers a solution to recipe planning that makes good sense. Eat Your Books is an online service that catalogs and indexes all the cookbooks sitting on YOUR kitchen shelf.

Looking for a chicken cacciatore recipe?  Type it in and the results list all the cookbooks you own that include the dish.   Want to know what to do with fresh coconut?  Enter in the keyword and Eat Your Books let’s you know what books use the ingredient.  I used it about a zillion times this year.

I can’t say enough things about it and I’m smitten with the co-founder, Jane.  Her and her sister have done a good thing for a cookbook hoarder like me.  And the good news? She’s offering The Fresh 20 community 3 Months FREE! Simple use the code FRESH20 and you’ll receive three free months.  Thank you Jane.  Nice meeting you.
