"I loved your home cooking approach. You have great beginner tips and the entire tone of the book sounds like you're actually talking to the reader and trying to be helpful and encouraging. I liked that you intentionally covered a range of cooking techniques. I also really liked how you covered the gamut from planning through cooking and also the importance of serving beautiful food. Your tips and ideas were easy to follow."
