What's a Desperation Dinner?

How to feed your family well when your spouse is late, the kids are losing it, and the dog is scratching at the door.

Desperation Dinners Promise:

1. These recipes are not hard.

2. These recipes do not require expensive equipment.

3. These recipes do not lie-every one can be made in 20 minutes, start to finish.

4. Expect to be working, but only for those 20 minutes.

5. These recipes taste good.

"The dinner dilemma is solved! The Desperation ladies deserve to be stove-side in every busy home." -Nathalie Dupree, author of Nathalie Dupree Cooks Quick Meals for Busy Days

Synopsis:

Beverly Mills and Alicia Ross created Desperation Dinners, part cookbook, part survival guide, part culinary revolution, as the answer to every frantic cook's prayers. Developed from "Desperation Dinners," their nationally syndicated column, the cookbook features over 250 recipes and a promise: With no idea what to cook, without having shopped in days, you'll have a tasty, home-cooked meal on the table in 20 minutes flat. By taking brilliant advantage of convenience foods-frozen chicken breasts, washed and cut vegetables, prebaked pizza crusts, salsas, and more-and using easy-to-master techniques (doing different tasks at the same time, "pushing" flavors with bold seasoning), the authors deliver: Barbecued Shrimp on Spicy Rice. Lazy Lo Mein. Pork au Poivre. Lime-Garlic Chicken Saut,. Minute Minestrone. Garlic-Roasted Salmon. Mom's Mini Meat Loaves. Individual Lemon Ginger Trifles. Heavenly Cream Cake.
