Where's supper? When do we eat? If your family is sick of takeout and pizza delivery and would much prefer Sloppy Joes, a Taco Skillet Dinner, or home-baked Crescent Dogs (Pillsbury's all-time most popular recipe), you're going to love the 30-minute meals in this Pillsbury cookbook.
Here are 230 easy menus featuring main dishes that can be prepared in less than a half hour. The emphasis is on speed and convenience, using the microwave, precut vegetables from the salad bar, and other shortcuts to beat the clock. There are lots of variations on skillet dinners (a staple of my own childhood), plenty of pasta dishes, and a section on vegetarian dishes, too.
Chapters on beef, pork and lamb, chicken, turkey, and fish and shellfish provide the majority of recipes, along with some quick and simple side dishes. Each recipe includes detailed nutritional information as well as special symbols to denote a Kid-Pleasing Recipe or a 20-Minutes-or-Less Recipe. A helpful sidebar next to each recipe suggests a complete menu, along with thoughts and timing suggestions for pulling it all together. (Ginger Curwen)
