Serving the family quick, easy-to-prepare meals that taste wonderful is the constant challenge for every home cook. That's why the editors of Good Housekeeping have come up with Good Housekeeping's Best One-Dish Meals, a collection of 300 easy, delicious, and family-friendly recipes, all triple-tested in the Good Housekeeping kitchens, and all with complete nutrition information.
If a recipe didn't pass the "great taste" test, it didn't go in the book. And great taste is here: consider Smoked Turkey and Raspberry Salad; Texas-Style Chili; Sesame Noodles and Vegetables; or Apple-Cranberry Pork Chops.
The editors of Good Housekeeping cover all the possibilities when it comes to cooking: soups and salads as main dishes, meatless meals, kid-friendly dishes like macaroni and cheese -- and a whole chapter devoted to main-dish pies and pizza, sure to please any kid, big or small.
Good Housekeeping's Best One-Dish Meals has scores of information boxes throughout the book, along with one hundred color photos. "Special Sections" are included, too; these round out meals, with taste tempters such as Smoked Ham and Cheese Biscuits and Olive-Parmesan Scones in the "Hearty Soups & Stews" chapter, and Hazelnut Shortbread and Jumbo Gingersnaps in the "Quick Desserts" chapter.
With the Good Housekeeping name behind it and the popularity of one-dish meals today, this book is sure to become another Good Housekeeping classic cookbook.
