    Back to Basics. I love this cookbook because most of the recipes in it are easy and delicious. I have made quite a few recipes from this book and they have all been hits with my husband and friends. Oh and most of them are healthy or you can modify to be healthy.

    "A bunch of my favorite recipes are one dish, two ways. Like this pasta with peas recipe—after I I make the basic version, I throw in lemon zest, chopped arugula, and fried prosciutto to make it adult. It's especially important in our house because my husband and I are big foodies and my kids are picky."
