Much more than a cookbook, this time-management course for the kitchen is full of no-nonsense solutions for today's busy home manager, who often has too much to do, too little time, and a minimum of square feet to do it in. With a three-step plan that includes streamlining the kitchen, organizing cupboards, and developing systems to manage food-related chores, she offers a simple approach that shows how everything fits together.
Nearly 600 recipes, including basics like roast chicken and spaghetti with meat sauce, take advantage of foods easily found in most supermarkets. There are recipes for comfort foods like chicken soup and macaroni and cheese, as well as for grandmother's favorites, including fried chicken and mashed potatoes.
In addition to the easy-to-prepare recipes, Brown suggests dozens of simple menus, and puts an impressive collection of kitchen reference material at the reader's fingertips. She tells you how to stock your pantry and how to select everything from apples to zucchini. She even provides charts so you know the safest way to store food.
