Good Cooking Begins at Home . . .

Recently I blogged about Molly Wizenberg, author of A HOMEMADE LIFE, and the pleasure I got our of reading her family stories and trying her recipes. Now JENNIFER FRAZER, a science writer who also loves cooking--or a cook who also loves science--has a terrific blog at http://homecookingwell.wordpress.com/ that she says is "about how your kitchen can enrich your life, your wallet, and your sense of humor."

Jennifer believes "good, home-cooked meals can be much healthier and tastier than what you’ll find in the frozen food aisle, the takeout box, or even many expensive, sit-down restaurants. The very same meal can often be made at home from scratch in 15-30 extra minutes using simple, widely available recipes and ingredients." After eleven years of cooking and experimenting, she wants to share the pleasures of her kitchen: recipes, meal planning, techniques, money-saving shortcuts, and nutrition tips. Frazer sauces her tales with a delightful measure of humor and I wouldn't be at all surprised if, in time, we see a book by her out there titled, as is her blog, HOME COOKING WELL!

The photos alone will have you drooling over your computer, heading for your own kitchen, and ditching the last of the frozen pizza in the trash! Happy eating--

I completely agree that food at home is much healthier. I've read that restaurant meals tend to be generally high-calory. I'll definitely look at this book.
