This book is great for families, and or people who are not college students. No matter how 'simple' the recipes were I found the amount of ingredients needed for things to be excessive, I have a student budget and can't afford to buy +10 different spices and only use them once or twice. I also don't have the space for everything.

I love this cookbook! I have tried many of the recipes and they have all been great. Bright flavours with simple, frugal ingredients that you have around the house. Its not complicated stuff, but it gave me some great ideas to liven up weekly meals! There are a couple (Nasi Goreng especially) that are now staples in my house.

I adore this book and have had a lot of fun cooking my way through it this month. Never has frugality been this much fun or delicious. And by the way, I am no cooking newbie.

This is a cookbook for hipsters and other people who don't really know how to cook. Instead, check out the classic More with Less Cookbook by Janzen, or anything by James Barber

The Dutch meatballs are amazing. Worth it for those alone.

I love Emily Wight's philosophy on cooking for a family - pragmatic, frugal and delicious! Emily is a local Vancouver author and blogger.
