Cooking from Scratch as Simply as Possible

The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook is the perfect way to get dinner on the table quickly and easily with recipes for tasty main dishes and flavorful side dishes, plus a sprinkling of sweet treats. The recipes in this book are made from scratch and each chapter conveniently separates them by cook time: 15-25-minute meals, 30-45-minute meals and 5-10-minute prep (meals cook on their own in the slow cooker or oven).

Looking for dinner ideas at the last minute? Your whole family will love Sweet Chipotle Chicken Bites, and they're on the table--start to finish--in barely fifteen minutes. If you have just five minutes now and you need dinner in a couple of hours, prep Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf and dinner will be ready when you are. Want a delicious slow cooker meal you can start now and have ready to eat tonight? Try Slow Cooker Mexican Pulled Pork and pile the juicy pork into sandwiches, burritos or a tempting taco salad. With a few extra minutes but little effort, you can wow your family or guests with Creamy Balsamic Skillet Chicken or Red Chile Beef Enchiladas.

Whatever your occasion, there is a recipe here to help you get a fresh, great-tasting meal on the table in no time. Each entrée provides notes for side dishes as well as tips for adapting the recipe. Many recipes are gluten-free or suggest gluten-free substitutions. With this cookbook, preparing a homemade meal can be simple and stress-free, even on nights when you only have a few minutes to spare in the kitchen.

We really loved this book!
Great book for full time working families that cook every night.
"15–25-minute meals" are absolutely must-try. Recipes we kept after returning this book are all from this section.
Also some recipes come with incorporated side dish recipes, so you don't have to think about what else you should be cooking. Great book for busy families.
