Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Parmesan-crusted tilapia with cucumber, tomato, and fennel relish

    • southerncooker on April 26, 2018

      I didn't make the cucumber, tomato, & fennel relish that went with this fish. No salt was called forthe recipe and I thought maybe because of the Parmesan. It does need a bit of salt.

  • Loaded potato salad

    • southerncooker on May 16, 2018

      All the ingredients in a loaded baked potato in potato salad form. Delicious.

  • Cinnamon pecans

    • lhudson on April 09, 2015

      I got this book from the library and this was one of the first recipes I tried. My husband and I realy liked these nuts. I will be adding this recipe to one of my favorites!! Only issue is that I found only about 10 other recipes I wanted to try from the book. Will have to see if I change my mind.

  • Herbed spaghetti squash with crispy pancetta

    • lhudson on April 17, 2015

      Made this squash with chives and basil and it turn out great!! I think spaghetti squash is my favorite vegetable.

  • Burrata with grape tomato and celery salad

    • Ecngreg5 on April 28, 2020

      I really enjoyed this recipe, however it needed more salt. I liked the burrata cheese with the caprese-like salad, but I think I would use less vinegar next time. It could be because I didn’t have any red wine vinegar and used sherry vinegar instead, but overall, it was lovely!

Publishers Text

need to be about hurrying through an assortment of processed products. The midday meal is a fabulous opportunity to enjoy delicious ingredients and flavour - packed dishes and to slow down while you eat (even if just for a few moments). Acclaimed chef Gale Gand shows you how to make it happen - simply and easily, and for a fraction of the price of prepared salads and sandwiches. Gand offers 150 recipes - including plenty of kid-friendly fare (tested and approved by Gand's own children) - along with tons of tips for packing foods to go or turning lunch into a celebration with friends and family. As Gand says, when it comes to entertaining, "lunch is the new dinner." Chapters on soups, pastas, salads, grains, fruits, and more, as well as desserts, drinks, dips, and snacks, provide countless combinations for memorable meals at home or on the go.
