We’re all time poor and we all need to make better choices about what we put into our bodies. This new compendium of easy and fast recipes from Melissa Joulwan is the tastiest way I’ve seen to get started or continue to be inspired.
Melissa’s conversational, empathetic style was the partner I needed, and her cookbooks treat food like the treasure and pleasure it is. Her recipes aren’t about self-denial or sacrifice. They’re about flavor. They teem with it. They’re meals I want to cook, not as homework, but as hedonism.
I often find the question ‘What do you want for dinner?’ more stressful than actually prepping and cooking the meal, but thanks to Well Fed Weeknights, the what’s-for-dinner game just got crazy fun. You'll be blown away by how many time-saving resources are packed into this cookbook, and the recipes are the perfect balance of joy-in-my-mouth and hey-that-clean-up-went-fast. So feel free to ask me what I want for dinner tonight, because I've got about 34 pages in Weeknights already bookmarked.
I’m head over heels in love with Melissa Joulwan’s Well Fed Weeknights! My spice-loving kitchen sister has created yet another amazing collection of umami-packed meals—and this one is tailor-made for busy folks like me who crave flavorful, nourishing meals whipped up in minutes. Why look anywhere else for culinary inspiration?
