    Dickerman proves that there's more to leftovers than a quick reheat in the microwave. Cooked rice or oatmeal can become a pancake; last night's salmon dinner, when tossed together with some pasta, is a whole new dish; and yesterday's roasted cauliflower, pureed with herbs and garlic, makes a delicious dip. Dickerman provides simple-to-follow directions for dishes using leftovers readers will be well familiar with. Tips for successful first-meal prep, food storage, and reanimating stored food set readers up for the second-meal recipes that follow. A handy chart at the end of the book lists the extra foods by category (e.g. Fruits, Meats) and offers up their second-meal uses and recipes in this book, as well as special care instructions, days to keep, and whether the ingredient can be frozen. This book will appeal directly to those who are mindful of reducing their food waste, but anyone who has ever looked quizzically at a container of leftovers while trying to plan a new meal will find what they're looking for.
