Overview

Dinner with kids shouldn’t be a battleground. And it shouldn’t make a martyr out of the parent whose job it is to get it on the table fast, fresh and hot every day at 6 PM. Aviva Goldfarb’s cheerful Scramble system takes the hassle and worry out of mealtime. Her users and readers rely on her grocery lists, weekly meal plans and recipes not just for the healthy dinners themselves but for taking the stress out of dinnertime. She wants families to actually enjoy their dinners together! Now, with SOS! The Six O'Clock Scramble to the Rescue, Goldfarb is taking an extra of-the-moment stress away from meal planning for busy families: concern about the environment, about the cost of shipping out-of-season food halfway around the world, about packaging, about additives and preservatives.

In SOS! The Six O'Clock Scramble to the Rescue, readers will get a full year of weekly meals that:

—help readers eat seasonally without missing their favorite foods

—move toward a slightly more vegetarian menu for health and a lighter environmental footprint

—reveal when organic matters (and when it doesn’t)

—save money through easy, efficient planning, bulk buying, freezing and storing, and avoiding waste

—pack the power of achievable ethnic meals, such as Easy Cheesy Tex Mex Scramble and Greek Pasta Salad

—make grocery trips count

    Great recipes - poor print quality

    I have the other Six O'Clock Scramble cookbook and I LOVE it! I usually go for the cookbooks with pictures, but even without any, this collection is awesome. I am not a big cook and I needed some ideas to help feed my newly expanded family (we adopted two kids) meals that were healthy and that we could all eat. I refuse to get caught up in the "short-order cook" trap with my kids. This book fit the bill pefectly, so much so that I ordered this copy for my friend for Christmas. Many recipes are similar, with a few updates and additions for the Eco-conscious, but I was highly disappointed in the quality of the print. It looks like it was copied on a 1980s photocopier that was about out of ink. I have requested Barnes & Noble to order a new one to my local store so I could compare if I got a fluke one, but I have yet to see it arrive (2 weeks later and now late for Christmas gift). Don't buy online, but be sure you can see it so you can actually be sure to be able to read it!

    Love this Cookbook!

    My husband and I have enjoyed all of the recipes we have tried from this book! We are looking forward to trying many more. I actually did a full review of it on my blog at http://wifemomandmore.wordpress.com/2010/05/08/sos-the-six-oclock-scramble-to-the-rescue-book-review/

    SOS To The Rescue

    This is by far the best "cook" book I have used in my many years of preparing food for my family. It is such a useful, and in this economy a must have book for any family; large or small. Once I saw how great SOS is I ordered more copies for my grown children who have families. You will not be disappointed. Buy this book.

    Delicious, family-friendly AND healthy

    Looking for easy, delicious, and healthy recipes? I highly recommend this cookbook! It's by far the best I've family-friendly AND healthy cookbook I've seen. My husband is the family cook, and he loves making her recipes because they are easy and always well-received by the kids--a hard feat.
