Healthy cooking often requires many steps and a reliance on daily visits to farmers markets, but Kriegers new collection makes truly nourishing food more accessible to the average household. As the title suggests, all of these recipes can be made ahead, and Krieger includes freezing, storage, and reheating directions for convenience. Trendy superfoods such as chia seeds and farro make appearances, but the majority of recipes hew to more mainstream flavors and ingredients: herbed ham and cheese bread pudding; grilled steak and broccoli salad; and almond-crusted chicken tenders with apricot-mustard dipping sauce. In addition to casseroles and stews, Krieger includes prebaked flat bread and pre-simmered bouillabaisse broth. This well-crafted book provides solid inspiration for better eating. Photos.
