How many times have we thought to ourselves, I'd love to cook a great meal, but who has the time? Laura Karr understands this universal dilemma and has discovered a great way to cook up our favorite dishes in half the time, and often for half the price, using the convenience of foods from cans and jars.
Reminding us that canned food is nutritious, preservative-free, and available year round, Karr shares over 175 of her coveted family recipes, including Curried Chicken and Artichoke Salad, Fettuccine with Pumpkin Cream Sauce, and Turkey Tetrazzini -- all delicious and all prepared quickly, with the flip of a lid!
Laura Karr learned the basics of cooking by helping her family cater weddings. Her skills were further advanced when her grandmother accepted a position as head chef at a Northern California college. After completing her B.A., Laura pursued her love of writing through her work at several magazines and ad agencies. Now she combines her two passions in her first book. She lives in Lakewood, California.
