Todd Porter and Diane Cu are photographers who publish the immensely popular food, gardening and lifestyle blog WhiteonRiceCouple.com.

The family that author Tiffany Moen and her husband raise together has always been a creative, spontaneous, make-it-happen group of folks. As the family continued to grow through adoption, Moen had to stretch each dollar to fill stomachs. That meant fresh food made at home; no fast-food fare for this family! Moen found herself improvising when she was missing an ingredient for a recipe or wanted to improve a dish she had tried before. Sometimes, an item on sale at the market inspired her experimentations. Come along with Moen and cruise through these tried-and-true recipes. You’ll discover what the Moen family has enjoyed for years: delicious food, happy palates, and the wish that you had enough for leftovers!
