Not everyone has a book full of family recipes with a story to tell, but food columnist Leah Eskin does. Her collection Slices of Life: A Food Writer Cooks through Many a Conundrum ($20) features over two hundred recipes and accompanying quick-to-read true life stories and applications for each dish. The recipes are simple go-to standards that anyone should have on hand, so don't expect anything too fancy. But hey - sometimes you just need a molten chocolate cake, not something to get you Michelin stars.
Full disclosure: Outblush received a review copy of this book.
