I recently received an email from a reader frustrated because she wanted more “actual recipes.”
My first reaction was to get defensive.
Do you ever do that?
As a people pleaser with perfectionist tendencies, it’s usually my first line of response.
Sad but true.
But then I got centered and took several deep, soothing, calming breaths, which was just what I needed so see things from her point of view.
Because I’ve been busy for the past several years providing “actual recipes” on the blog and eCookbooks filled with “actual recipes” – I forget that everyday hundreds of NEW people visit Simple Nourished Living and sign up for my emails and they have no way of knowing this!
Which is the point of today’s post; To provide you with links to all my recipes and a recipe for Chicken Salad with Apples & Cranberries – one of the most popular recipes on the blog.
