Living on Love
Cooking When You're Short on Time and Cash
By Annie Oeth

If you are what you eat,Then I am cheap, fast and easy


"Annie Oeth’s Living On Love is the kind of down-home sass that every kitchen needs. Oeth chats with the reader in a way that feels like a front porch setting and uses cooking as a love language, reaching straight to the heart of the reader. The best part about this book is the lengthy list of recipes that make your stomach growl, but don’t take a bite out of your pocketbook." —Hannah and Caroline Melby of the band, Hanalena, authors of Recipes and Road Stories

Living on Love: Cooking When You're Short on Time and Cash is a cookbook for individuals who neither have an unlimited budget for food nor have the time to prepare and cook elaborate meals for themselves or their family.
Sometimes cooking with love is all about snatch and run.
Other times it requires a certain amount of discreet psychology.
"Cooking like anyone else but you is impossible. If you used recipes by Martha Stewart, you’d be putting your spin, your flavor, on Martha’s “suggestions,” writes Oeth.
"With this in mind, here are my recipes. Put your own spin on them."
Not only does the author provide a tasty assortment of recipes, she offers the cost and prep/cook time for each meal. Most of the meals cost less than $10 and take less than 30 minutes to prepare or cook. Chapter titles include:

It's 5 o’clock Somewhere:
Recipes for Appetizers, Tailgating and the Cocktail Hour
Get Your Southern On:
Cooking Down South
The Crock Pot: Your Secret Weapon
