An introduction covering the most basic of basics and dishes such as Tex-Mex Taco Salad might send serious home chefs in search of another book, but this straightforward, convenience- and health-driven volume has more gourmet gusto than readers might expect. And Romanoff, recipe developer for EatingWell magazine, provides recipes that make enough dinner for two people and can be prepared "in 45 minutes or less (under 30 minutes, in some cases)." Each recipe includes information on active time and total time to complete the dish and nutrition data; many have make-ahead instructions. Especially tempting options include Lamb, Fig & Olive Stew; a dressed-up grilled cheese (Grilled Manchego with Spinach and Spicy Plum Chutney); Pomegranate Duck; Coffee Bean & Peppercorn Steak; and quick desserts like Balsamic Vinegar-Spiked Strawberries, and Roasted Grapes. A section on sides such as Quick Cheese Grits and Avocado-Corn Salsa and suggested menus for a variety of occasions—New Year's Eve, a "hot date," pizza night—make planning a healthy meal easy, even when time is limited.

I don't like buying parsley and using a few sprigs. The same goes for dried figs and chicken broth. I guess I would prefer leftovers. Read morePublished 5 months ago by teri swisher
