Staff Review: "Well Fed, Flat Broke: Recipes for Modest Budgets and Messy Kitchens" by Emily Wight

★★★★

I enjoyed this cookbook and its approach to eating well on a tight budget. Most of us can relate to the author needing to prepare meals on a budget. This cookbook does a good job of giving you new ideas of what to cook that you can add to your repertoire at home. The layout of the book is easy to follow and pictures help give you an idea of what a dish should look like when finished. As far as I am concerned, the author helps me feel confident that I would be able to make these delicious- looking dishes. You can certainly catch the whimsical spirit of the author in these pages through the fun colors of the recipes and presentations of her dishes. If you are looking for something to help get you out of a rut, or if you think you cannot afford to eat well on a budget, definitely give this cookbook a look!
