In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, you get to meet Katie Kimball, the author of the new book sensation Better Than A Box! Her book, launched on Tuesday, has already sold 5,000 copies! (At the time of this writing — probably more now.)

Katie and I have been friends for a number of years, though not in person (yet!). Katie teaches more than a few lessons at GNOWFGLINS online classes, always going above and beyond in what she shares and demonstrates.

Today, she’s visiting with me about her multi-year project, the new book Better Than A Box. This book helps beginning and experienced cooks discover how to “reverse engineer” processed food recipes into whole foods family favorites. We talk about what’s in the book, her first “reverse engineered” recipes, and much more!

    I bought and downloaded this book and… WOW!!! I consider myself a very advanced cook. I have become great at throwing thing together from nothing. Still, this e-book is HUGE and chock-full of tons of great advice and recipes (and I haven’t even read it all yet!)

    Thanks for sharing this great resource!
