Written by a gourmet and an I-have-to-cook, this volume introduces a totally new, tastier, and healthier concept of fast food. Old-fashioned home cooking is cleverly updated to fit today's busy schedules, making it possible to enjoy the meals that, in a matter of minutes, once took all day to prepare. There are 260 complete menus--entrees, side dishes, and desserts--and each one is fully described on a two-page spread for quick reference.
Easy-to-follow recipes are followed by weekly ingredient lists that make shopping a snap, a run-down of necessary cooking equipment, and a handy preparation schedule to ensure everything comes to the table on time and at the right temperature.
Perfect for single parents, the cooking partner of a two-income family, or an active, overcommitted, stay-at-home mom, this book brings variety, great taste, and fun back to home-cooked meals.
