Publisher's Description

Have a fridge full of staples, a family of finicky mouths to feed, and only a few minutes to get something on the table? If this sounds all too familiar, chances are you'll find dinner and more in this can-do approach to mealtime. The Busy Family's Survival Cookbook is designed with the modern-day family in mind-too busy, with not nearly enough time to eat together-and makes delicious meals come together in a snap. With a focus on accessible recipes with only a few simple ingredients, this guide takes the humble pantry staple and transforms it in minutes into delicious restaurant-quality dishes.

The more-than 125 recipes are organized, not by course or time of day, but by the way people really cook: categories like pasta, vegetable dishes, salads, chicken, slow-cooking, fish, and more make the dinner dilemma easy. Try Butternut Squash and Pear Soup, Bronzino Veracruz, Baked Wild Mushroom Risotto, Roasted Chicken Enchiladas, and Meatloaf Burgers. This revolutionary approach will change the way you see dinnertime.

Ponzek emphasizes using the best ingredients in straightforward ways, often with enough of a twist to keep things interesting…evening meals for families, couples, and singles don’t have to be something microwaved. Any level of home cook, from novice to professional, can relax and execute these 125 recipes, which are full of goodnesses and local seasonal ingredients."

“If you get the dinnertime blues, there’s good news, and it’s all spelled out in The Dinnertime Survival Cookbook (Running Press, $22, 256 pages, ISBN 9780762444755), Debra Ponzek’s collection of accessible recipes and tips for taking the blahs, boredom, bother and quotidian quandaries out of getting a good dinner on the table every night.”

Everybody Eats
