Introduction

Her life's a mess. And so is her kitchen.

Divorced, heartbroken and living in a lonely New York apartment with a tiny kitchen, Rachel Goldman realizes she doesn't even know how to cook the simplest meal for herself. Can learning to fry an egg help her understand where her life went wrong? She dives into the culinary basics. Then she launches a blog to vent her misery about life, love and her goal of an unburnt casserole. To her amazement, the blog's a hit. She becomes a minor celebrity. Next, a sexy Spaniard enters her life. Will her souffles stop falling? Will she finally forget about the husband she still loves? And how can she explain to her readers that she still hasn't learned how to cook up a happy life from scratch?

The Wall Street Journal named Melissa Ford one of the country's top ten "mommy bloggers" for her acclaimed commentary on infertility at her blog, Stirrip Queens. She lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband and son. Life From Scratch is her debut novel.

All journeys worthy of anything begin with wine and end with a meal. Life From Scratch does just that, adding heart and laughter to the recipe. ¬¬-Stephanie Klein, author of Straight Up And Dirty and Moose: A Memoir of Fat Camp

The book was ok, an easy, quick read but not one of the best we have read this year.

If this were a sort story it might have been better. The ending didn't really decide anything.
