Based on the four seasons of the year, the book provides five days of planned, well-balanced dinners for every week. The recipes are kitchen-tested family favorites with an emphasis on fresh, seasonal foods. Most of the recipes can be prepared in 30 minutes or less. They are presented in such a way that leftovers cam be included in meals planned for later in the week.
Quick tips to save time and expense are also included. Extensive weekly and bulk shopping lists are coded by day to allow for family tastes or the requirements of special diets.
