I’m not talking about (nor is this in any way affiliated with) the popular survival video game–though I suppose the premise is similar. This reminds me of a joke I heard somewhere on social media: Fitbits are like Tamagotcha, except that the stupid little critter you’re trying to keep alive is you. This section is like that. The whole idea is that these are extremely simple recipes meant to keep you from starving or blowing loads of money on pre-made “food” (yep, using the term very broadly here). Honestly, this is primarily intended for my daughters, who are all quickly approaching adulthood. That said, I know that a resource such as this would have been very welcome after starting my family. So if you’re a veteran of the kitchen, this section probably isn’t for you–unless you have some ideas on other simple recipes that you believe should have a home here. In that case, drop them down in the comments below, and I’ll pull out a cot for them.
