In Laura Lea Goldberg’s new cookbook, The Laura Lea Balanced Cookbook, the rubber of old-fashioned home-cooking meets the road of new food. With over 120 approachable, comforting, make-ahead recipes, this first cookbook from the creator of the popular “balanced” reaffirms that balance is possible: you can find the joy, relaxation, and healing of cooking for yourself, family, and friends during these frenetic times.
All of the recipes are simple, familiar, and no-fuss. The majority of the recipes come together in thirty minutes or less and all are appealing to kids alike, can be modified for picky eaters, or can be proudly served at a dinner party. The food isn’t dogmatic: a little of everything is used and flexibility is the key. With a focus on quality and moderation, the aspects don’t hit you over the head. They just make you feel good.
