Read Scratch: Home Cooking for Everyone Made Simple, Fun, and Totally Delicious Online Free - Maria Rodale was raised on real food. She doesn’t think of eating homemade, from scratch meals as part of a trend or movement; it has always been her life. Raised in a family of farmers, bakers, chefs, gardeners, and publishers, Maria is used to growing, cooking, reading and writing about, and eating organic, delicious food. And now, for the first time ever, she’s sharing her tried-and-true family recipes.
Scratch is full of comfort food recipes that aren’t focused on any one healthy trend, but are instead innately healthy, because Maria inspires you to return to your kitchen and cook with real, organic food. Recipes like Pasta Fagiole, Maria’s Fried Chicken, and Lamb & Barley Soup will be crowd pleasers for sure, but Maria throws in some unique-to-the-family recipes that are going to delight as well, such as her Pennsylvania Dutch Dandelion Salad with Bacon Dressing, Ardie’s Pasties, and Homemade Hoppin’ John (a black-eyed pea stew made with smoked turkey or ham).
Besides sharing her family’s favorite recipes, Maria’s book also gives you a peek into her life as a Rodale, with personal family portraits and stories. With this cookbook, you can eat like the Rodale family every night of the week with delicious food to make at home, from scratch. Naturally healthy, bacon included.

A fellow librarian flagged this one for me when she saw it in a book order because she knew that some new dietary restrictions were making dinner time a challenge in my house and that meals made from scratch were less likely to cause problems for me. I am so thankful that she sent this book my wa...

When I first heard about this cookbook I didn't even realize the author was related to J.I. Rodale - one of the pioneers of organic farming. The author is J.I.'s granddaughter and she grew up on the first official organic farm eating high quality food made from scratch. Even after she became a si...

"Real food". Like today there are 8 billion ghosts living on mana.
Anyway, the book is just a scam. Home cooking as in Cordon Bleu is way too complicated for Maria Rodale so is not really home cooking. Made simple? These are simple recipes. Nothing in here is made simple. Fun? This sure is a stran...

Very good homecooking recipe collection. There could have been fewer recipes that differed in only one ingredient from another but overall a nice primer for those who want to cook from scratch at home more and develop a solid kitchen repertoire.

I love studying/reading cookbooks; I normally borrow them from the library write down what sounds good and return. But I will be buying this cookbook. Too many to copy. The simplicity of the recipes; allowing the food and cook to really do the "talking" without all the bells and whistles is beaut...

I'm adding a cookbook to my overall challenge this year, even though I was trying to avoid anything other than "real" adult reads. That said, I've added this because I believe it is an honest work of non-fiction. Maria Rodale provides insight into a lifestyle we should all embrace - organic livin...

Organic made Easy
I am an avid foodie and cook. And I love cooking...A LOT. I always thought "organic" meant "difficult" or too much trouble to bother. This book lured me in because the title is "Scratch" which interests me and is how I try to cook the majority of the time. I was reminded of Mark...

Awesome book! I'm a super picky eater and an inexperienced cook, to say the least, but I found several easy, delicious recopies in this book. I love the simple approach to wholesome, organic food. Can't wait to try more of these recopies.
