HASH(0x900721a4) out of 5 stars Great Info for all cooks - new & old 27 Jun. 2012
By Susan Abbott - Published on
Format: Paperback
Eat In Not Out may be simply categorized as a "cookbook" but it more complex while being more basic. As the cover states it is "the Learn-How-to-Cook-Book without the recipes." While that may confuse some potential readers, it is entirely accurate. Well written and concise, this book provides a wealth of information for not only the novice but also the experienced cook. It gives a broad range of suggestions from actually stocking and organizing (or re-organizing) a kitchen to ideas for cooking without recipes or evaluating those a cook might want to try. This book is a goldmine of nuggets of wisdom with a superior body of references both in the chapters and in the bibliography. A refresher course for cooks with experience, a primer for those without. An excellent source book that I wish I had had when I was helping my daughters stock their first kitchens.

HASH(0x8fdafce4) out of 5 stars Great way to cook naturally 17 Nov. 2012
By Kendall, On An Inhale - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was given Eat In Not Out and found it to be a great resource for new cooks and people who want to deepen their understanding on how to cook more comfortably. The format is short chapters ranging from basic nutrition to meal planning and understanding different recipe terms. The tips and tricks are especially helpful to building dishes that are healthy and delicious. I recommend Eat In Not Out to people who want to cook more without being restricted to a recipe. It is an excellent addition to any kitchen!

HASH(0x97f331c8) out of 5 stars Great book for food enthusists 11 Oct. 2012
By jpm - Published on
Format: Paperback
I always enjoy eating good food but just never seemed interested in preparing. Growing up as a family, we had a few simple favorites that we just rotated through each week. I never really learned my way around the kitchen and began to find myself eating far too many frozen meals. That all changed when I picked up Eat In Not Out.

Other cookbooks accumulated over the years seemed too advanced and only served to discourage me while they collected dust in my kitchen. By contrast, Eat In Not Out explains things simply, while at the same time being enjoyable to read. I have learned a thing or two about how to eat healthier since I purchased the book and feel much better about what I am eating. (I think my waistline agrees!)

HASH(0x97ce2b10) out of 5 stars Great Resource 9 Aug. 2013
By New Fan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I read this book in three sittings while on vacation and even took notes! Reading this book felt like having a conversation with a really smart, but dear friend. Her writing style is so friendly and personal, yet it's easy to see that she knows and lives what she's talking about. What I most valued in this book are the examples she brings in of how her own family deals with junk food and healthy cooking. I would have liked to see some her favorite family recipes.

HASH(0x90079a14) out of 5 stars Eat In Not Out 13 Feb. 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a basic primer on cooking. It explains the most basic elements of how to cook. Including how to use measuring spoons and cups. It is great to introduce children to the art or cooking but I think it is too basic for most people
