After losing her job Jennifer spends a year evaluating what is worth while to make at home, and what is better left to the professionals. She includes recipes, which are a bit pedestrian for anyone who already cans, preserves, and generally cook everything from scratch. However, it was an entertaining read and the recipes she included are good solid fare. Her writing is amusing, breezy and thoughtful.

I'm comfortable recommending it to newbies starting to cook more of their own basics, and as a light bit of whimsy for more experienced home cooks.
