She writes about the challenges of modern family life with wit and good humor, and firmly believes that good food will make any day better.”—Jack Bishop, editorial director of PBS' America's Test Kitchen“Reading Leah Eskin's columns one by one is a pleasure; reading this collection from start to finish is a joy. It's also proof that the sum is much greater than the parts, even when the parts are terrific.
