* I've got this book from NetGalley in exchange of an honest review*

Firstly, I have to say, that I didn't expect to like this as much as I did. I was accustomed to a dry and plain recipe+picture books, but this one was totally different. Actually it felt like you were talking with your friend, not reading a book, if you know what I mean. The author chose to speak not only about recipes, but also how her family (she calls it "crew") reacts to what she cooks for them and it was so relatable. All the time I was reading it, I was like "yes, girl, I know what you mean" or "It also happened to me hundred times".
It really can help those who just starts to learn how to cook and even for those who loves spending time in the kitchen. I've learned few things from this book about food and easy ways and tricks how to prepare it quickly.

Do I recommend it ? Yes.
