Cooking Beyond Measure: How to Eat Well without Formal Recipes helps everyday cooks bring fresh, seasonal produce and wild fish to the center of the plate. The focus is weekday cooking, health, affordability, and ease. The invitation is light-hearted-'paprika with its come hither red sass.' The message empowering-'why let elite cooking authorities have all the fun?' Historian turned cookbook author, Ms. Johnson was impressed when she learned that Americans didn't even have measuring cups 100 years ago. She believes that cooking like our great greats will bring truly delicious, affordable food back to our tables. She thinks formal recipes with measurements and step-by-step rote directions-the small chemistry experiment approach to cooking-are a key reason we schlep off to the land of crinkly packages. The first in Johnson's measurefree cookbook trilogy, Cooking Beyond Measure includes technique and theory for novice and seasoned cooks alike. It has engaging breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipe notes designed to empower busy people who want to eat more reasonably priced, great tasting, farm-to-table food.

CURVE YOUR APPETITE. Dumping the fake stuff and relishing real food will make you feel better, help you drop pounds, and most importantly, take all the fear out of what you eat. Does that sound too good to be true? It isn’t—despite the fact that lately we’ve given up ripe vegetables for the canned stuff; tossed out sweet, tart orange juice for pasteurized concentrate; traded fresh fish for boil-in-a-bag dinners; and replaced real desserts with supersweet snacks that make us feel ridiculously overfed but definitely disappointed. The result? Most of us are overweight or obese—or heading that way; more and more of us suffer from diabetes, clogged arteries, and even bad knees. We eat too much of the fake stuff, yet we’re still hungry. And not satisfied. Who hasn’t tried to change all that? Who hasn’t walked into a supermarket and thought, I’m going to eat better from now on? So you load your cart with whole-grain crackers, fish fillets, and asparagus.
