Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn

Spelndid Table Big Ups MH

Thanks to respected colleague Lynn Rossetta Kasper for suggesting Mad Hungry to John in Nashville whose trying to juggle a tough work schedule with creating healthy home cooked meals

Lynne Rossetto Kasper: The Splendid Table
Roast vegetables for supper or take-to-work lunches

Dear Lynne: My wife and I never have the same schedule two weeks in a row, and we work different shifts. Where can we find recipes that we can cook en masse, freeze and heat up as needed? We want to be able to have good meals at home, as well as take our own lunches to work to save money and eat better.

Thank you so much.
John

Dear John: Soups, stews and braises usually freeze beautifully, so you've got a raft of possibilities. To eat healthier, stay with recipes using meat as a flavoring rather than the main ingredient. Ones without meat that, instead, capitalize on whole grains and beans are even better.

Some authors who focus on little or no meat and write good-tasting, sound recipes are Deborah Madison ("Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" and other titles) and Louisa Shafia ("Lucid Food"). For real-life practical cooking when you are hungry and have little time, look at "Mad Hungry" by Lucinda Scala Quinn.
