Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Roast one chicken and you'll have a delicious Sunday supper. Roast two, and you'll be all set to whip up a sesame-chicken salad or biscuit-topped chicken pie after work on Monday. Using a little planning and ingenuity, Cooking for the Week takes the "But-Mom-I'm-starving!" panic out of weeknight cooking. Authors Diane Morgan, Dan Taggart, and Kathleen Taggart create an easy-to-follow blueprint for weekend dinners that can fill the fridge with a week's worth of creative meals.

Thirteen weekend menus offer recipes that will feed four hungry people and provide enough leftovers to build three or four more appetizing and varied weekday dinners. While you'll find familiar favorites here, Cooking for the Week also goes around the world for great ideas, from Mexican-style shredded duck tacos and chicken quesadillas to Thai lamb curry, Asian noodle bowls, and Italian pizza, pasta, and frittatas. Add in a dozen delectable desserts (including a killer chocolate cheesecake and an all-American strawberry shortcake), and you might never need that pizza-delivery guy again.

Review:

"Leftovers by any other name can still taste as good, if not better. In this book, the culinary team of Morgan, Taggart and Taggart...map out a week's worth of meals (including sides and desserts) that busy cooks can make ahead of time during the weekend. Illustrated with tantalizing photographs." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Smart cooks know that leftovers are a good thing. An empty refrigerator dooms the cook to a tiresome trip to the store, the agony of starting from scratch for each meal, or worse: night after night of soulless, expensive take-out. But with a little planning ahead, a hearty weekend meal can provide several delicious meals throughout the week. In Cooking for the Week, weekend dinners are designed to provide plenty of leftovers, which are then used in clever weekday recipes. And these weekday meals are no dried-out rehash: leftovers are creatively transformed into stir-fries, salads, soups, pastas, fajitas, sandwiches, and other delectable reincarnations. Each weekend menu is tied to three or four weekday dishes, so planning a week's worth of family meals is easier than anyone ever imagined. Cooking for the Week gives you a plan that makes it possible to eat well, feed the family, and spend weekday evenings relaxing instead of running around. Now that?s a great idea!
