Staff Picks

Has mid-week mealtime become overwhelming? 
Are you short on time but don’t want fast food?
Do you want your family to eat more nutritious food?

The library has an array of cookbooks that focus on recipes with minimal preparation and healthy ingredients. All include photos, hints, and nutritional information.  Give these a try:
Cooking Light Fresh Food Fast 24/7 from the editors of Cooking Light magazine
Everyday Food:  Fresh Flavor Fast:  250 Easy, Delicious Recipes for Any Time of Day from the kitchens of Martha Stewart Living
Fabulicious!  Fast and Fit: Teresa’s Low-Fat, Super-Easy Italian Recipes by Teresa Giudice

And for a personal hint that I learned from my grandmother:  keep a few staple ingredients on hand and you’re always only ten minutes away from dinner.  I like to keep grilled chicken breasts in the freezer and pasta and seasoned diced tomatoes in the pantry.

Happy Cooking!
