Measure, Mix & Marinate not only offers me new recipes to try for dinner, but gives me ingredients to apply to my life! I can’t say enough good things about this book!
Disclosure: I received this book to review through iRead Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
As a wife, mom and former corporate go-getter, Cheryl knows firsthand the frustration of trying to do it all and feeling that none of it is good enough. As the world slowed down for a global pandemic, Cheryl inspected her own life and who she wanted to become—who she needed to become—to serve at her highest level. Much of this discovery occurred in the kitchen during playful evenings side-by-side with her sons, husband, and mother. Their time together led Cheryl to realize that how you measure your priorities, mix them in with your life experiences, and marinate on and adjust to the results determines the direction of your life.
Measure, Mix and Marinate not only offers up 9 new recipes for you (and or your family to try) but it offers amazing little tips and tidbits (ingredients) to apply to your every day life.
I read through the book in four reads – 25% each night – as it was a short read, but I feel like I need to go back and just do one little section each night and highlight the ‘ingredients’ that really speak to me. There were a lot of great quotes and tips that really resonated with me and where I am in my personal life.
As I got towards the end of Measure, Mix and Marinate, I found myself highlighting more sections that I wanted to remember for myself and apply in my every day life. It was then that I realized there were so many more great things in the beginning of the book that I did not highlight, but really should have. Now that I have read the book for the story, I am going to go through each little section per night and highlight the areas that speak to me so that I can then “marinate” on them a little more than I did when just reading.
I am not typically one that is really into “personal development” type reads, but am trying to do read more of them to achieve my dreams and become a better person. If you are seeking a personal development book to read next, I highly recommend Measure, Mix and Marinate. It is short, to the point, and has great bits in there that can be applied. I feel like this book was provided to me just as I needed it in my life.
