We've all been there. Craving a gooey, cheesy pizza on a Thursday night, until you finally give in and call the local pizza joint for delivery. Mad Hungry Cravings acknowledges that indulging your cravings is a perfectly reasonable thing to do. But going out to a restaurant or ordering take-out isn't the best way to do it.

Mad Hungry Cravings runs contrary to our conventional wisdom about fast food and take-out being fast and easy. Lucinda Scala Quinn asserts that you can make your favorite comfort foods at home, and they will be healthier, tastier, faster, and cheaper than getting the restaurant version. After a few minutes of perusing this cookbook, she'll have you convinced.

This cookbook begins with a section on Scala Quinn's basic philosophy about crave-able foods. Keeping fresh ingredients on hand is half the battle. Start simply. Plan ahead and strategize. Broaden your horizons. These simple gems of advice are oh-so-obvious, yet so challenging to put into action. The author makes you feel like this is really possible, and that basic changes in the way your household operates can facilitate healthier, cheaper eating. She also explains the essential ingredients that make it possible to whip up Latin, American, Mediterranean, and Asian dishes without making special trips to the store. The rest of the cookbook is broken into the following categories:

Breakfast
Soups and Sandwiches
Salads
Noshes and Nibbles
Main Dishes
Noodles, Rice, and Corn
Veggies and Sides
Spirits
Sweets

One of my favorite things about this cookbook is its excellent layout. The design is fun, fresh, and modern, making the cookbook easy to read and very accessible.

I was surprised to see on the cover of Mad Hungry Cravings that it has 173 recipes. It feels like so much more than that! There is a little bit of everything in this book! The book can be summed up in the Mad Hungry Maxims - how and why to cook the food you crave at home - focus on cooking at home instead of take-out.

The book begins with a look at the pantry, or as she calls it the larder. A lot of books begin like this, but this one is set up a bit differently. Your larder is divided into American, Asian, Mediterranean, and Latin. Under each category are the basic ingredients that you need to keep stocked.

I have all of her cookbooks and have made many of her recipes on her blog and show as well. Nothing has ever failed or been a disappointment. What I really love about her style is she proves you can cook healthy meals from scratch even if you are a busy women in a chaotic house, or a college kid, bachelor or single person. Your family can eat meals that don't come from boxes or cans. You wont be disappointed. It's even an excellent book for teens and college kids to get into. She has recipes for foods we like to get from take out and shows you how to make it using the same amount of time it would take to go out and get it, being much healthier for our bodies and pocketbook. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

many tips are presented as well as a nice index of all of the recipes.
i would recommend this book for anyone from a novice cook to an advanced chef.
