“Fitting real food and real cooking into really busy lives is no simple task. Most families struggle with this daily, too often giving up in the face of sometimes overwhelming frustrations and setbacks. But there is great value in finding balance between the chaos of modern family life and an appreciation of honest food cooked at home. It doesn’t require much time or energy. It just takes mindfulness.”

J. M. is the author of several cookbooks, including High Flavor, Low Labor. He will lead discussion on Wednesday night on preparing good, healthy food on a tight budget of time and money. He will also address how to engage your children in cooking and getting them out of the “McDonlad’s trap.”
