Summary "For Laurie McNamara, growing up on a farm in the country had major perks: her mother cooked with vegetables bursting with flavor from the family garden, she and her family collected fresh eggs from the chicken coop, and absolutely everything--from ketchup to casseroles--was made 100 percent from scratch, with whole foods. When Laurie became a working mother raising two children, though, she found herself too busy to prepare the from-scratch meals her mother had made. Like most Americans, she relied on boxed pancake mix, canned soup, bottled dressings, and frozen dinners to make cooking for her family quicker and cheaper. But she soon learned that these so-called shortcuts were, in fact, both more expensive and light-years less healthy than simply making everything herself. Laurie vowed to remake her family kitchen into a from-scratch kitchen and to start cooking with whole-food ingredients. The result? Her family saved money, and mealtimes became more fun and delicious. Laurie has now helped hundreds of thousands of home cooks prepare from-scratch meals with the simple tips and foolproof recipes on her blog, Simply Scratch."--Dust jacket flap.
