    I read this mostly for her philosophy on how to approach minimalist cooking. Now to hope it inspires my approach to the kitchen!

    Interesting opening about minimalist philosophy. Nice ideas on cutting down on what you have in the kitchen, but the recipe section was lacking.

    A good reminder for mentally checking your perceptions of your own expectations versus the reality of your availability or ability in the kitchen.
