by Laurie McNamara —

McNamara grew up on a farm in the country where her mother cooked with vegetables from the family garden, fresh eggs from the chicken coop and absolutely everything was made 100 percent from scratch with whole foods.

When she moved away from home, she found herself busy working full time and raising two kids.

Like most Americans, she relied on boxed, canned, bottled and frozen dinners to make home cooking quicker and cheaper.

But she soon learned that these so-called shortcuts were both more expensive and light-years less healthy than simply making everything herself. Eventually, she vowed to remake her kitchen into a from-scratch kitchen.

Now five years later, she has helped hundreds of thousands of home cooks prepare from-scratch meals with whole-food ingredients through her blog “Simply Scratch.”

This cookbook highlights her home cooking know-how with 120 wholesome, tasty recipes, along with stunning photography, entertaining anecdotes and personal musings.

McNamara offers easy recipes for delectable concoctions that use everyday ingredients, and she proves that cooking from scratch can be affordable, simple, fun and absolutely delicious.
