Simple, smart, stress-free cookingand#160;to haveand#160;dinner ready when you are

Better Homes and Gardens Make-Ahead Meals is a must-have recipe collection for anyone looking to get homemade dishes on the table with ease. Filled with over 150 recipes and 100 gorgeous photos, plus tips and tricks for quick food prep and complete meals, this book makes planning dinner a breeze.

Make-ahead cooking isnandrsquo;t about stocking the freezer with pre-made meals that donandrsquo;t keep well. This book shows cooks how to plan and prep prior to serving, through techniques like freezing carefully to preserve freshness, creating refrigerator casseroles, or using a slow cooker in the morning for dinner that night. Make-ahead cooking also saves money. For time-strapped families, these strategies can be the difference between a home-cooked meal and spending money on packaged meals or ordering in.

Review:

"Garten offers smart solutions with over 75 recipes for make-in-advance dishes. Recipes are suited for both family weeknight fare meal planning and for special occasions. There are cocktails, from margaritas to martinis, and plenty of platters and soups for starters, including a wild mushroom and farro soup and walnut roquefort — topped warm fig and arugula salad. For lunch, ham and leek empanadas can be filled, wrapped, and kept up to three days in the fridge and three months in the freezer before baking. Garten provides lots of casseroles, hearty grain and vegetable sides, and desserts. She also guides cooks through a complete make-ahead Thanksgiving feast. Recipe sidebars show make-ahead information for packing and storage and the number of days ahead the dish can be prepared before cooking or serving. Recipes are designed both as dishes for immediate consumption or make-ahead meals. Garten provides 10 make-ahead tips for parties, and there are essays on baking, presentation, and proper freezing methods, along with sample make-ahead menus for entertaining. A secret kitchen sidekick, the Barefoot Contessa quells the last-minute fears of those who entertain. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
