Short and Simple Family Recipes


Short and Simple Family Recipes Cover




Amy Roloff is well-known to millions of fans from TLC's family-friendly reality TV show, Little People, Big World where audiences have watched her family face obstacles, overcome challenges, and live their lives on camera, as well as watch Amy prepare meals for her family over the past seven years. Amy may be little, but she is making a BIG difference in the world in many ways. Business woman, inspirational speaker, TV star, philanthropist, farm owner, author, and mom are just a few words that describe this one-of-a-kind woman. Amy realized her passion for people and for helping others reach their potential as a kid growing up. Her challenges, experiences as a little person, and successes as a graduate with a BSBA from Central Michigan University in Personnel and Hospitality, an early education teacher, manager of a soccer club, youth team soccer coach, television star, and charity foundation head are some of the ways that she has naturally inspired and touched people lives. She has made a difference and wants to know that others can make a difference too. In preparing the cookbook, TLCs production company filmed her in her kitchen as she tested recipes and worked with the food photographer as he shot pictures of the plated food for the cookbook. The filming continued during a meeting with the publisher as they discussed the forthcoming cookbook with Amy and the food photographer. These four special one-hour programs of Little People, Big World are being aired during 2012 and leading up to the publication of SHORT & SIMPLE FAMILY RECIPES. Besides being a masterful home cook, Amy has made four appearances on Rachael Rays program where they have cooked food together. She has done a number of cooking demonstrations at public events such as The Bite of Oregon. Amy is also a paid public speaker, traveling throughout the country spreading awareness about acceptance and bullying. The Amy Roloff Charity Foundation helps children and families in need, and a portion of the cookbook proceeds will go to her charity. Amy, her husband Matt, and their children live on a farm near Portland, Oregon.
