Carol Heding Munson, Author People's Medical Society $14.95 (192p) ISBN 978-1-882606-69-6
Munson offers satisfying stove-top and put-together meals that are strong on nutrition yet easy to fix, and serves them up with nutrition facts and tips on each page. Casseroles and stove-top main dishes include a shortcut Shrimp and Sausage Paella, made with chicken breast and turkey sausage; Speedy Chicken Skillet Dinner with fusilli, mushrooms, precooked chicken and cream of mushroom soup; Rustic Turkey Stew with cubed squash; and Haddock with Potatoes and Carrots, and bread stuffing. Stir-fries are well represented, e.g., Pineapple and Pork with Lime; salads are diverse (Shells and Tuna Salad; Warm Salmon and Red Potato Salad). There are hearty soups to sample (Spicy Chili Bean Soup) and substantial, supper-weight sandwiches (Hickory Barbecued Turkey in a Bun; Pepperoni and Two-Pepper Stromboli, on a rolled pizza-dough crust). A glossary describing ingredients such as garam masala and biryani and the names of many shapes of pasta will be helpful to readers new to the kitchen. (Jan.)
