The Dinner Plan : Simple Weeknight Recipes and Strategies for Every Schedule Hardback


Between juggling school, work, mismatched schedules, and often bare refrigerators, there are all sorts of situations that make weeknight cooking a universally challenging-and frustrating-experience.

Dinner Plans offers five meal strategies-Make-Ahead, Staggered, One-Dish, Extra-Fast, and Pantry-that will make weeknight dinners effortless.

Each of the 135 recipes, from main dishes to sides to salads and "lifesaver" condiments, provide lots of practical Monday through Friday options whether time is super-tight, the fridge is empty, or everyone is coming home at a different time. And all of the recipes are "keepers"-brag-worthy, reliable, crowd-pleasing preparations that you'll confidently turn to again and again.

Shrimp Scampi, Sheet-Pan Chicken Fajitas, Zucchini and Parmesan Frittata, Foolproof Carbonara, and Mexican Skillet Lasagna are just a few examples of go-to recipes that will earn their place in any busy cook's repertoire. Rounded out with plenty of tips and a bonus section on healthful snacks, Dinner Plans is every home cook's indispensable weeknight dinner guide.
