Think “Essential Recipes for Today’s Kitchen.” It’s full of the genuinely useful stuff that we all need in a cookbook: pancakes, beef stew, chicken noodle soup, lasagna, salad dressings, vegetable ideas, after school snacks, apple pie and of course chocolate chip cookies. No foie gras. No fluff. Nothing but today’s flavours. Each recipe covers the basics you need but they also include lots of insight and freestyle suggestions so you can impress yourself in your own kitchen!
