Readers Love Wildly Affordable Organic
WAO is a regular on Amazon’s list of top 10 organic cookbooks. I spotted it there for 29 months before I quit checking regularly. As I write this, five years after publication, it’s number 4. It frequently makes Amazon’s list of top 10 budget cookbooks too.
I would have given ANYTHING to have had your book in my kitchen when I was raising 2 kids on crappy pay and spurious child support. — Leslie H.
Read the entire thing cover-to-cover in one sitting, very inspiring. I already do many of the things in the book habitually (make my own granola, bread, and yogurt, cook every day, pack lunches…) but she’s got a few tidbits even for crazy people like me. Great book, really loved it. I’m glad someone finally wrote this book! — Megan S.
I love this kind of cooking. Easy to follow menus and delicious. My family has loved everything I’ve made, especially the desserts! Highly recommend!! — Margie F.
