I'm tired of doing math when I cook for TH and myself, this was just the book we need! It included some "classic" recipes like meatloaf which was "batch cooking" most recipes were not. If you enjoy spending time in your kitchen and don't have a crowd to cook for, check this book out today.

I found this to be a very pleasing and accessible cookbook – and I fear cookbooks, so that’s saying something. Witty and engaging, with recipes that are easy to follow – more than anything else I really appreciate the thought that goes into how to plan for your leftovers to become something completely different.
