Good Enough is the perfect cookbook for anyone whose dishes don’t always turn out perfectly. If we’re honest, there are times that most of us get in a hurry, make a mistake with ingredients, or mess up on timing, so this book is really for everyone. Good Enough is not only a cookbook, but a self-help book that sets out to convince readers that less-than-perfect is good enough and that there is no reason to feel guilt because of it.

Included are helps on organizing, shopping, having a food storage program, feeling less guilt, and other subjects to help make our cooking experience easier and calmer so we don’t feel as stressed. The articles include illustrations which are delightful and colorful, making this a fun book to read, even when not cooking from it.

The best part of the book is the recipes, however, and many are fairly healthy, although there are several mouthwatering desserts that won’t go unnoticed. One of the best things about this cookbook is that there is a beautiful photograph of every recipe, so readers will know how their dishes are supposed to look when finished. Of course, less than perfect is “good enough,” but most of the recipes are quite easy, so most of us will get good to excellent results. The recipes are written in standard form, and are easy to follow.

All told, this cookbook is a bit different, but definitely good for a good read as well as a recipe book. Very fun!
