Cathy Erway did the unthinkable, at least for a New Yorker—she quit restaurants cold turkey for two whole years. And, as the author of the popular blog Not Eating Out in New York can attest, she lived to tell the tale. Her journey from takeout junkie to conscientious eater veers through underground supper clubs, foraging in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, and many, many sessions at that aforementioned stove. Her twenty-four months off the restaurant grid are chronicled here, punctuated by thirty original recipes.

For tasty, simple ways to keep yourself in your kitchen while you’re waiting for Erway’s inspiration to arrive, try a few of our go-to dishes that involve minimal time and maximum yum:

Gnocchetti with Pancetta, Chanterelles, and Mint
Scrummy Warm Arugula Salad
Spanish Tortilla with Manchego, Onions, and Potatoes
