    Great resource for creative, healthy, and tasty meals

    So far I have tried several of the recipes in the book and they are all excellent. Not only that, but the recipes are easy to follow and the directions are pretty specific. Some of the recipes are even easy enough to have kids help out, or for new cooks just starting out. There are also some harder-to-cook dishes that allow you to practice your skills, and are great to serve to others when you want to impress!

    The best part, however, is that none of the ingredients are particularly hard to find, unlike some cookbooks that ask you to hunt down some rare ingredient that costs a fortune, but there is a great variety of different vegetables and grains so that there's bound to be something new for you to try.

    I also recommend Jamie at Home (shown at left) if you like to garden or are just curious about what to grow in your new garden. The recipes are of a similar difficulty level and are great for using up lots of one kind of vegetable when it's abundant in your garden or at the farmer's market.

    Practical gourmet

    This is not your traditional cookbook, you will not find a list of ingredients paired with bake times. Instead Jamie shares his recipe suggestions while speaking out on nutrition. He will also give alternatives for ingredients, which makes cooking his recipes affordable.

    The dishes are affordable, healthy, and pretty easy to prepare. Three thumbs up from the Chef, the vegetarian, and the third grader.
