Get out of your recipe rut...

...and get excited about dinner again!

I have just what you need

I’ve done the hard work for you. Dinner411: Easy Recipes & Tips to Get You Out of the Dinner Rut is chocked full of recipes that I have personally tested and have deemed “keepers”.

Dinner411 is so much more than just a cook book. It has everything you need to keep you organized and your family satisfied – printables, tips, recipes and step-by-step instructions. 

I’ve put my recipe hoarding skills to use and brought you a collection of easy and delicious recipes that don't use hard-to-find ingredients.  

All of the recipes in Dinner411 have been tested by me to make sure that they:

  • Are easy to make because who’s got time for a 90 minute recipe on a Tuesday?!?
  • Use common ingredients you can easily find at your local grocery store.
  • Taste delicious because there’s nothing worse than trying a new recipe that looks incredible only to find out it tastes like slop.  Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Ready to take control of dinner?  It's less than the cost of a pizza!

Hi!  I'm Christina, the chief-cook-and-bottle-washer behind It Is a Keeper.  

I’m a busy work-at-home mom, wife, blogger, Cub Scout leader and Sunday School teacher. I’m also a self-proclaimed recipe hoarder who reads cook books cover to cover like most people read a juicy novel. 


When I started It Is a Keeper in 2010, I was working full time. At the time, blogging was a hobby. A way for me to do what I love (cooking) and share it with others.

Today, blogging is my job. I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to work from home doing what I love. Some days, it’s crazy busy, like the running-my-dishwasher-three-times-in-a-single-afternoon kind of busy. But most days, I’m able to connect with all kinds of amazing people, swap recipes and hang out in the kitchen.

A little bit about me...
