Homemade-ish is a sassy, no-guilt cookbook, with more than 100 quick-and-easy recipes, that support busy folks wanting to provide healthy home-cooked meals to their family.

Creating and enjoying home-cooked food is time well spent, but sometimes we’re busy—almost too busy—to be bothered with the task of cooking, with the work of it all. How do we reconcile the impact and importance of providing home-cooked meals with the ever-lurking busyness that threatens to send us dashing to our doors to answer the call of our latest food deliveries? What do we do about this?

Meant to be a beacon of comfort, Lauren McDuffie’s Homemade-ish is an invitation to let your hair down and relax a little. No judging. No pretenses. Just simple, unfussy food that you really can throw together in minutes. Offering encouragement from one page to the next, Homemade-ish is here to be a supportive guide, a delicious devotional of sorts, with every recipe a reminder to take it easy on yourself, to keep it real.

With this cookbook, McDuffie shares more than 100 recipes that make use of store-bought shortcuts and quick-fix tricks for breakfasts; appetizers and snacks; soups; salads; pastas, grains, and meatless mains; meats and fish, and desserts. From jazzed-up bagged salads to improved-upon casseroles to faked and fabulous sweets, you can feed your family well, and actually have time to sit down and enjoy the meal together.
