Cooking in Real Life by Lidey Heuck 

From Lidey: I’m so excited to announce my first cookbook, Cooking in Real Life.  It’s a collection of simple, delicious recipes for all the different reasons we cook – busy weeknights, family holidays, quiet nights in, and every moment in between. I know that for most of us who like to cook, it’s far from the only thing we’re doing each day.  I wrote this book as a companion to a full life – to share recipes that will inspire you to cook more, to enjoy the time you spend in the kitchen, and to create memorable meals with your friends and family. That’s what cooking in real life is all about!
