I've done some thinking about that. Over the last few weeks I put together a small, very small cookbook for my son with barebones information about how to buy food, what brands are reliable, how to plan a menu and use your time wisely in the kitchen and some actual weekly menus with a handful of recipes. The recipes I included are exactly what I think Oliver is talking about. Simple food with a few ingredients that will sustain life.
I realize that most of you in the blogging world are making gourmet food. But do your children and neighbors know how to scramble an egg? If not, here is a tried and true recipe that I think everyone should have for LIFE. It's the first recipe in the book for my son, it takes 45 seconds to make-- FLUFFY SCRAMBLED EGGS, made in a cast iron skillet.

We all have our "go-to" recipes that pull us through life. I know you have them.
What do you make on a night when you wish you didn't have to cook dinner but everyone is starving and you know you can do better than take-out?
I really want to know.
