When it comes to the challenges you face every day, getting dinner on the table is always at the top of the list. Not only do you want the meal to be healthy and taste good, but you want it to be fast and simple to prepare. As straightforward as that sounds, somehow-in the midst of a busy life- the task seems nearly impossible. In "Meals Made Easy", the first of a series of "Real Simple" cookbooks, you will find smart and doable dinnertime solutions for every night of the week, no matter how little time (or few ingredients) you have. Even better, these are dishes the whole family will love, yes, including your children. Featuring more than 75 foolproof recipes, all illustrated with large, lush photos, "Meals Made Easy", is custom-made for your life, with chapters dedicated to: dishes that can be prepared and ready in 30 minutes or less; freezer-friendly dinners to make ahead of time and eat whenever; cuisine that calls only for a cutting board, no cooking necessary; meals you can cobble together using the items in your cupboard; and recipes that require just one pot (and blessedly very little cleanup time).
