I love this book. Not only are the recipes simple, but they also come out tasting great. I appreciate a book that is down to earth in its recipes and that uses ingredients I actually have. I am not gourmet -- I just like to eat well. This book really makes simple recipes easy to find. I think it's a "must" for every kitchen.

This is my all-time favorite cookbook. More With Less promotes healthy, environmentally-conscious eating. Lots of great recipes for using up leftovers or odds and ends. This was the only cookbook I used when I was a poor graduate student living alone - lots of inexpensive, easy to make, delicious, one-dish meals. Plenty of kid friendly recipes. Many of the ingredients called for are items that you're likely to have in your pantry.

My copy of this cookbook is tattered from 25 years of use, and I wouldn't give it up. It is still the cookbook I turn to often when looking for economical, socially responsible meals. Great reference for those beginning to cook with less animal protein, but not a vegetarian cookbook by any means. There are directions for simple things like cooking dried beans (something my mother never did, and so I didn't know how to start). Also, great suggestions for using leftovers and substituting with locally available ingredients. I also enjoy the vignettes sprinkled throughout the book on the origins of some of the recipes. This cookbook emphasizes community of family and friends around the table. A wonderful resource that can add to any cookbook collection!
