Jenny Rosenstrach, and her husband, Andy, regularly, some might
say pathologically, cook dinner for their family every
night. Even when they work long days. Even when their kids'
schedules pull them in eighteen different directions. They are not
superhuman. They are not from another planet.
With simple strategies and common sense, Jenny figured out how
to break down dinner-the food, the timing, the anxiety, from prep
to cleanup-so that her family could enjoy good food, time to
unwind, and simply be together.
Using the same straight-up, inspiring voice that readers of her
award-winning blog, Dinner: A Love Story, have come to count
on, Jenny never judges and never preaches. Every meal she dishes
up is a real meal, one that has been cooked and eaten and
enjoyed at least a half dozen times by someone in Jenny's house.
With inspiration and game plans for any home cook at any level,
Dinner: A Love Story is as much for the novice who doesn't
know where to start as it is for the gourmand who doesn't know how
to start over when she finds herself feeding an intractable toddler
or for the person who never thought about home-cooked meals until
he or she became a parent. This book is, in fact, for anyone
interested in learning how to make a meal to be shared with
someone they love, and about how so many good, happy
things happen when we do.
