As an everyday home cook who also has a successful YouTube channel, Carla Lalli Music, understands there are many barriers to getting a good dinner on the table. And she also knows that those barriers can be overcome by some thoughtful inspiration.
This collection of 100 recipes is organized to offer paths around common kitchen problems. For instance, Stovetop Suppers require little prep and minimal washing up. Dishes from Burning Clean emphasize healthy meals when you may have overindulged the night before. And for weekends when you have more time—and a few more mouths to feed with the presence of friends and extended family—there are chapters such as S is for Sunday Soup, Stew, & Sauce.
Among her ideas: herbed rice with shrimpy-kimchi tomato sauce; gingery ground beef with lime and herbs; spicy cucumber and watermelon salad with pan-fried peanuts; spaghetti with melted cauliflower sauce; split pea soup with mustard-chile sizzle.
Lots of smart and fun prospects here.
