Celebrity chefs? Immersion blenders? Who needs ’em?!?

Every page features their simple, no-frills recipes for pot roast, meat loaf, dumplings, corn bread, fried chicken, bundt cake, and other old-time favorites—along with gorgeous photography of the chefs and generous portions of kitchen table wisdom.

Tell me where the heck margarine comes from, and then maybe I’ll eat it!”) So ditch the food processor, stop wasting money on overpriced organic frozen dinners, and start enjoying the classic dishes that our aunties and grandmothers have made for generations!

Meet the Author

Meg Favreau is a writer, comedian, food enthusiast, and one-time eating-contest winner living in Los Angeles. Her work has appeared on sites including the Huffington Post, McSweeney’s, and the Smart Set, and she serves as senior editor of the frugal-living and personal-finance site Wise Bread. Meg dedicates this book to her grandmother, whose pie-making skills remain unrivaled, and her mother, who once said, “I want the dedication in your first book to be ‘To my mother, who always believed in me.’” (It’s true.)

Michael E. Reali is a fervent photographer, intermittent painter, incidental mosaicist, desultory traveler, casual gourmand, and practiced chef who once spent a night trapped on a mountainside in Greece with a bull. A native of Philadelphia, his work can be seen on murals throughout the city as well as in the book Old Man Drinks, an assignment that landed him much acclaim and a stint at Betty Ford. 

Mr. Reali possesses a degree in fine art as well as an extra bit of pancreas, making him a curiosity of modern medicine. All of Mr. Reali’s proceeds from this book will go to his favorite charity: The Feed Mike Reali Fund.
