Helping to meet the needs of today's busy home cooks are the latest additions to The Everyday Cookbooks series.
For many of us, weekdays are the most hectic in terms of trying to put dinner on the table. Weekdays are Quick Meals ensures that busy lifestyles are no barrier to hearty and delicious meals each and every day of the week. Sumptuous and savory dishes such as Warm Pecan Chicken Salad, Korean Noodle and Beef Stir-Fry and 30-Minute Chili are all just a half an hour (or less!) away. Mouthwatering recipes for delicious soups, skillet-dishes, stews and stir-fries are included among the 113 featured in Weekdays, and many low-fat favorites like Pasta Twists with Scallops and Leeks round out this most useful volume.
All ten volumes in The Everyday Cookbooks include notes that provide low-fat variations—recipes that are low in fat are marked with a heart—as well as short-cuts and tips on how to make meal-time easier and more fun. Most recipes can be made in 45 minutes or less with readily available ingredients, ensuring that every day is a special day around the family dinner table. All combined, the recipes add up to more than two years of dinnertime and entertaining for each and every night of the week.
