Six o'clock looms, and dinner has to be on the table pronto-the kids don't care if you've just come home from work exhausted and out of ideas or spent the afternoon ferrying them from school to playdate to tae kwon do practice. The Scramble to the rescue! Each week's worth of recipes is utterly organized, easy-to-prepare and designed to please both adult tastes and finicky children's palates. Everything is homemade, with a clever reliance on just enough prepared or packaged-but never fake-foods. Inventive, flavorful, and healthy are Aviva Goldfarb's watchwords; her Scramble recipes include:
Recipes that can be prepared in thirty minutes or less
Weekly menus so parents need only shop once a week
One vegetarian main course per week
Meals that kids can help prepare
Fun foods for lunchboxes, after-school snacks, or weekend get-togethers
Complete nutritional information for each recipe
Dinners like honey-glazed salmon, Asian turkey burgers, and Moroccan Chicken that will please the whole family.
