Cookbook of the Week
Got 15 minutes to spare? Time enough to prepare a satisfying dinner, according to Sam Gugino, author of Cooking to Beat the Clock: Delicious, Inspired Meals in 15 Minutes. Geared toward today's busy lifestyle, this cookbook unveils the secrets of working efficiently in the kitchen, allowing you to prepare mouth-watering, meal-size entrees in a quarter of an hour--including the time it takes to chop vegetables, peel potatoes and boil water. Cooking to Beat the Clock is divided into sections (meat, poultry, seafood, pasta and grains, vegetarian, and so forth), offering dozens of nutritious recipes to suit every palate. Many of the dishes are elegant enough to appear on a restaurant menu, yet they're all a snap to make at home--and in less time than it takes to have a pizza delivered.
