Once upon a time there was a girl who spent two hours preparing every meal she served her husband and friends. Apparently, she had all the time in the world — and spent half the day in the kitchen. But, one day, she realized the beauty of easy meals.

And you can, too.

If you haven’t guessed already, that girl was me. I seriously used to spend A LOT OF TIME IN THE KITCHEN. I enjoyed it, but after so many long hauls, that kitchen work lost its luster.

While I still enjoy preparing great food, I’ve found that for everyday cooking, I invest my time better when I prepare easy meals.

Enchiladas, mac and cheese, salads bursting with protein, grilled fish with savory herbs and butters — these are the foods that taste every bite as good as a 3-hour feast but without a lot of hassle. The time savings allows me to enjoy other pursuits. It also makes me less likely to pay for pricier restaurant fare.

If I know that I can make something delicious, quickly and easily, why would I want to do anything else?

  1. I am definitely getting a copy. But can I ask, what is the recipe for that dish at the top of this page with the egg noodles and green beans? It looks amazing! Is that recipe in this book as well?
