The Chameleon Cook:
Cooking Well With What You Have
140 pages of adaptable core recipes, frugal cooking information, rules-of-thumb, and guidelines for cooking everyday food with what you have on hand, including how to adapt to cooking without eggs, dairy, sugar (honey instead), or wheat. It also includes an index.
At 5½“x 8½“ it's intended to be easy to fit in any size kitchen. Any level of cook will find it useful, from beginners to old-hat. I recommend it especially for college students, missionaries, newlyweds, or anyone wanting to expand their understanding of how to make a recipe work.
It has a laminated cover for durability, full-color cardstock chapter dividers with photos, and your choice of plastic coil binding or plastic comb binding.
Cost is $14 if purchased through me, $14.95 if bought retail. Copies may be purchased at John and Jennie's Bosch Kitchen Center, Not Just Copies, and the Sandy Bosch Store. You can order by calling (801) 541-6999, leaving a comment on this page, or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
