Star of the Food Network’s Quick Fix Meals with Robin Miller and author of Robin to the Rescue , Miller offers an organized, simple approach to dinner for the time challenged. She provides a year’s worth of weeknight flavorful, healthful and varied meals that make the most out of seasonal produce. Each chapter includes a prep list of steps that can be done in advance, and throughout Miller offers time-saving tips, such as cooking extra chicken breasts now for a second meal later in the week. Recipes have prep and cook times listed and most double easily and freeze well. When appropriate, she offers suggestions for morphing one meal into another: grilled steak with shiitake mushrooms, wilted arugula and shaved parmesan can be served the following night as beef and noodles in whiskey cream sauce. Miller also includes suggestions for quick side dishes and desserts, including cumin-roasted Yukon Gold potatoes, buttermilk onion rings and banana-blueberry fool with honey-roasted peanuts. With today’s busy lifestyles in mind, Miller offers cooks a wealth of options for making appealing, healthy meals, even on hectic weeknights. (July)
