The host of the Food Network's Quick Fix Meals has gathered 200 recipes and a host of tips for time-pressed home cooks who want healthy, tasty weekday meals with minimal prep time. Her solution: a strategic approach by way of shopping in bulk, cooking large batches and storing them until it's time for a quick thaw, and being flexible about what's for dinner. Key concepts include Make It a Meal Kit (chop vegetables, marinate meat and freeze until it's time to cook and serve) and Bank a Batch (double recipes, use the extra later). Miller also recommends slow-cooking and getting creative with substitutions. The nutritionist and author of six cookbooks provides recipes for soups, starters, salad, poultry, meats, fish and dessert. There's a healthy emphasis on flavor and variety—and plenty of vegetables and fruit. In each section, Miller assesses various foods' Quick-Fix-ability and shares favorite entrée-and-side-dish combinations. The index allows for searching by main ingredient, marinade, technique and more. It's a well-rounded resource for super-busy sorts who are organized enough to plan, shop and prepare meals in advance.

Time saving strategies

Here's a new entry in that ever-growing, fast-fresh-easy-efficient cookbook category. Robin to the Rescue: Quick & Simple Ideas for Delicious Home Cooking serves up a variety of strategies for getting a delectable dinner on the table with as little hassle as possible. Robin Miller, Food Network host, cookbook author and nutritionist, knows that every day is busy in a different way, so she offers alternative prep options you can use to customize your meal planning. Each of these 200 recipes has a quick-fix feature—usually two or more—to expedite and jazz it up. The "Make It a Meal Kit" strategy tells you how to partially prep meals in advance when you have some extra time. You can make the three components of Chicken with Pistachio-Parsley Pesto in advance, store them in the fridge, then simply pop them in the microwave. "Bank a Batch" advises you to double the recipe and store the extra in the freezer for next week. "Morph It" transforms extras (intentional or otherwise) into distinctive new meals—just double that pesto, serve it over shrimp and rice, and presto! "Have It Your Way" plays with ingredients, swapping tofu for shrimp, shrimp for chicken, chicken for salmon, salmon for flounder, snow peas for broccoli. Solid savvy for savory suppers.
