"From the popular blogger behind Simply Scratch comes a debut cookbook showing how to home-cook absolutely everything from scratch. For Laurie McNamara, growing up on a farm in the country had major perks: her mother cooked with vegetables from the family garden, they collected fresh eggs from the chicken coop, and absolutely everything--from ketchup to casseroles--was made 100 percent from scratch. When she moved away from home, though, McNamara was too busy working full-time and raising two kids to prepare from-scratch meals. Like most Americans, she relied on boxed brownie mix, canned soup, bottled dressings, and frozen dinners to make home cooking quicker and cheaper. But she soon learned that these so-called shortcuts were in fact both more expensive and light-years less healthy than simply making everything herself. Eventually, she'd had enough and vowed to remake her kitchen into a from-scratch kitchen. Now, four years later, McNamara has helped hundreds of thousands of home cooks prepare from-scratch meals with whole food ingredients through her blog, Simply Scratch. McNamara's highly anticipated debut cookbook, Simply Scratch, takes her home-cooking know-how to the nation, with 120 wholesome, mouthwatering recipes along with stunning photography, entertaining anecdotes, and personal musings. This book offers easy recipes for delectable concoctions such as Buckwheat Pancakes and Creamy Roasted Tomato Soup. Simply Scratch will be the must-have bible to cooking beyond the box and can. Featuring everyday ingredients, a down-to-earth approach, and family recipes, Simply Scratch proves cooking from scratch can be affordable, simple, fun, and--of course--absolutely delicious"-- Provided by publisher.

I think maybe it was a clash of personalities or something but I did not enjoy this book. I felt the title was a little misleading in comparison. To most books of the same subject. But I don’t know the author nor do I know any of her other work so maybe I just didn’t get the whole heart of what she was trying to write.
