    WOW, A must have for your home!

    This book is fantastic and everyone who enjoys cooking needs to get their hands on this book. What is best made homemade and what is best bought at the store? Well she sums it up in easy to understand writing adding a bit of humor along the way. Currently I have my homemade yogurt draining on the counter. How fun is that? Who knew I could make yogurt and Greek style to boot.

    I will be purchasing a copy or two of this book for family members who love to cook. Homemade is so much better tasting and better for you than many of the store bought fakes(no preservatives). This book will help you decide if it is worth making the items you like from scratch or just buying them in the store. What a wonderful idea for the cook or want-to-be cook in your life. She even adds whether it is cost effective to make the item at home.got to love that.

    This is a book to buy for your home and an extra copy for those you know who are trying to save money or eat less premade items and more homemade. I think this book will save me money and keep us healthier in the long run.thanks Jennifer for this terrific resource. 4 1/2 stars because cooking is not for everyone.

    I loved this book and found it not only easy and enjoyable to read it, but so funny there were times I had to put it down while I got under control enough to continue reading (read the section on goats in the backyard - hysterical). I've been a good home cook for many years and pride myself on being a "from scratch" cook but this book takes it to a new level. Who'd know that peanut butter (and more) is so easy and affordable to make?

    The book is practical, informative and funny - just plain funny. This is a must read for those who like to cook, like to laugh and want to see the practical limitations of cooking.making from scratch.
