Are there favorites in your recipe card box that are collecting dust because all the processed ingredients make you squirm?
Do you miss the comfort food casseroles that use cream of chicken soup because you refuse to buy those cans anymore?
If you wish you could cook from scratch without finding all new recipes, you need Better Than a Box.
If your family complains that they miss their old favorites now that you're trying to eat less processed foods, I can help.
The goal of Better Than a Box is to teach you to reverse engineer the processed parts of any recipe and create delicious real food renditions. You'll gain confidence in the kitchen, finding the courage to toss in a little of this and a little of that, even if you've always been a “measure to the correct 1/8 teaspoon” sort of chef before.
Better Than a Box is so much more than a recipe book; it's a way of cooking. From habits and routines to make sure you always have certain things on hand, to tips for saving dishes as you cook up a storm, and even “recipes” you will be able to cook by heart, this book will help you have the real food lifestyle you want without compromising the food your family loves.
Your kitchen life will be transformed.
