Maureen: This book has been unbelievably great.
Kirstin: It has been great.
Maureen: What did you like best about it?
Maureen: Succienct, but true. It hits our sweet spot: delicious meals that don’t involve multiple bowls, an afternoon in the kitchen or a trip to the supermarket.
Kirstin: And it looks pretty.
Maureen: It almost was like a simpler Diana Henry. Now I understand why she’s written three books like this. This one was terrific, and now I’d like to give the other ones a try, too.
Kirstin: And the timings worked!
Maureen: They did. What else is there to say? We loved it.
Kirstin: Go buy this book if you don’t already have it. And our children should have a copy. It’s fantastic for university people.
Maureen: It’s true. It is great for students. All they have to do is bang the ingredients into a tin.
Kirstin: Even they can handle that.
Maureen: Yes, hopefully they can.
