"Cookbook author, nutritionist and Food Network Quick Fix Meals host Robin Miller's mission is to help busy cooks get meals on the table. Her new book, Robin to the Rescue: Quick & Simple Ideas for Delicious Home Cooking, offers not only recipes but strategies to streamline your weeknight dinner routine."--Star-Telegram (Fort Worth, TX)
"Miller writes from experience as a busy mom, author and Food Network star. She has served up an essential guide for getting weeknight meals to the table quickly -- no fuss, no stress -- in this manual. Each recipe includes prep time, active cooking time and "walk away time" -- the food cooks without supervision while you spend time with your kids or do other things. Especially helpful are added tips following each recipe: Make a Meal Kit, start meal when you have time, package it and complete closer to serving time; Bank a Batch, double the recipe and store in refrigerator or freezer -- eliminating prep time when serving at a later date; Morph It, turn leftovers into delicious new dishes; and Have It Your Way, take recipes you love andswitch some of the ingredients for a new slant. Some recipes call for five ingredients or less -- and almost all ingredients and directions are on one page. Miller also shows how to switch some chicken/meat recipes to vegetarian dishes. Trained as a nutritionist, she emphasizes healthful eating (lots of fresh veggies and fruits) but her bottom line is serving delicious and flavorful food " --El Paso Times (TX)

One thing I will say of Robins recipes is if it doesn't turn out exactly how you think it should, try it again and add something else or try a different cooking method. For Example: The first thing I made was the spicy chicken meatballs with tomato and lime dipping sauce. I made them exactly as the recipe says to but I found that I didn't have enough room in my pan to make all the meatballs and it would have taken too long to make them all up in batches. So instead I put the rest of them in a 375 oven for 20 minutes, flipping once, and they turned out great! I've made adjustments to other recipes in the book and they've turned out perfectly! Don't be afraid to make it your own and change the recipes a bit!
