Read full description of the books:
I have been really fed-up with cookbooks lately - they have these beautiful, lavish recipes... but they all call for half a million fancy ingredients that cost a LOT and are hard to find in a small town with no easy access to gourmet grocery stores. So when I saw this book and read a little about it, I wanted it. "More-with-Less" sounds like code for "Simple" to me.
So I went into this prepared for the simple ingredients and back-to-basics cooking... and that's what I got! I love that most (all?) of the ingredients the recipes call for can be found at my local market or grocery store. And they cook with whole grains and natural ingredients, which is a direction I am moving towards. I just baked the oatmeal muffins, and even though I overworked the dough, they came out really delicious and were as simple as the recipe said they would be, and made only 12 - which is perfect since I cook for just me. All with ingredients I already had! (I do have one note: they are big proponents of dry milk, which I will never get behind. Just move past things like that.)
What I didn't expect was that the greatest value of this book isn't necessarily in the recipes - it's in the philosophy. This COOKbook is actually about 1/4 to 1/3 BOOK, and Mennonite philosophy just oozes out of it. For me, it put a name to the thoughts I was already having about American consumption. It was a little hard to follow and connect-the-dots... but that's good, because it made me truly think about it. It actually made me do a little research on Mennonite beliefs...
I recommend this highly to anyone concerned with food - the world's food resources, eating healthier, saving money on food, the evils of the American food industry, etc. As a Christian, the message of mission and compassion appeals to me, so I can't speak to how non-Christians would take it - but I do think you can get past it.
