Colon writes a charming, uplifting story of getting her mojo back after losing her dream job at a famous magazine. The book is part celebration of family and part cookbook as the author finds strength in her own family's struggles through the Great Depression. She learns about these when she unearths a folder of family recipes in her efforts to economize. When an author opts for reading his or her own material, it's always a gamble. In this case, one can hear that this material might have been better served by a professional actor’s ability to bring out the humor and quiet drama in this appealing little book.
