Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Aunt Patty's coffee cake

    • spharo00 on March 09, 2012

      This is my favorite coffee cake. It is always moist and the chocolate-coffee swirl in the middle is so delicious!

  • Bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich, New York City deli style

    • spharo00 on May 26, 2012

      My favorite way to eat this is with cheddar cheese and a blueberry bagel. So yummy!

  • Baked chicken with honey-whole-grain mustard glaze

    • Cheri on March 25, 2013

      These were simple and quite good. Used whole grain mustard with sweetness coming from a hit of maple syrup and touch of honey for the glaze. I'll bet if you had extra, these would also make nice cold picnic food.

  • Caramelized cauliflower (fancy)

    • spharo00 on January 27, 2013

      I love roasted cauliflower and the addition of capers was really a surprising change from the norm. It was salty and briny and I love the way the capers sort of pop in your mouth. I left out the golden raisins and parsley because I didn't have any, but the dish was just fine without them.

  • Chicken enchiladas salsa verde

    • bigwerk on June 12, 2011

      We use premade Salsa Verde and add sauteed onion and peppers to the filling

  • Chicken Parmesan

    • Kfaber on September 14, 2014

      Very good recipe for chicken Parmesan- sauce is amazingly good. Quite a lot of prep work and clean up though, so best for Sunday night dinner.

  • Chicken soup and rice

    • bigwerk on June 01, 2011

      kids don't like the rice, prefer noodles

  • Creamed spinach

    • Cheri on March 23, 2013


  • Creamy spiced oatmeal

    • spharo00 on March 31, 2012

      The spices were really fragrant and gave the oatmeal a kind of chai taste. It did not make 4 servings, more like 2, unless you served the oatmeal with other dishes. I topped mine with toasted almonds, maple syrup, and a splash of cream.

  • Fat girl red rice

    • bigwerk on June 01, 2011

      added diced carrots

    • bigwerk on June 01, 2011

      added diced onion and carrot

  • German apple cake

    • Kfaber on September 06, 2013

      Made this with peaches instead of apples. So easy to make and delicious.

  • Lentil vegetable soup

    • susankay on May 18, 2013

      It is wonderful as is, but the croutons make it eye-rolling excellent!

  • Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

    • bigwerk on June 22, 2011

      these are outstanding simple cookies. Would not change a thing except we used chocolate chunks as we prefer big chunks of choc in our cookies.

  • Steak pizzaiola

    • marym on May 15, 2011

      This steak pizzaiola is a home run!

  • Tangy sweet salmon and rice salad

    • Kfaber on August 25, 2013

      The best summer salad- awesome flavors!

  • Tessy's banana bread

    • ComeUndone on August 24, 2010

      Love the spicy sweet topping. Added in a handful of toasted walnuts too. Good recipe because it only uses 1 banana.http://www.flickr.com/photos/wscwong/4920259283/

    • bigwerk on June 04, 2011

      added mixed spice and 1/4 cup LSA to the bread - love this recipe

    • spharo00 on June 13, 2012

      This bread is very moist, definitely more of a cake than a bread. The added spices really take this over the top and make it something special, without covering up the true banana flavor. This will be my go-to banana bread recipe from now on.

  • Thai-style fried rice

    • Kfaber on February 15, 2016

      Super easy and fast recipe. Substituted broccoli for bok choy

Publishers Text

Civilize the wild beasts in your life, one meal at a time.

Four hungry brothers. Three ravenous sons. A husband who loves to eat. Lucinda Scala Quinn has spent much of her life feeding the men and boys in her life and teaching them how to feed themselves. Now Scala Quinn—chef, television personality, and Martha Stewart Omnimedia's resident food guru—shares winning strategies for how to sate the seemingly insatiable, trade food for talk, and get men to manage in the kitchen.

She provides recipes for single-skillet meals and dinners that yield fabulous leftovers and that are a cinch to stretch for extra guests. Her grab-and-run breakfast will help kids start the day right, and her healthful drinks make it easier for guys to say no to soda. Scala Quinn's recipes are easy to prepare, affordable, and so good that even the most finicky eater will want to dig in.

Along with her cooking techniques and survival strategies ("Never be caught without bacon"), Quinn muses about life in a predominantly male household and provides empowering advice to feed guys' spirits as well as fill their bellies. With her help, homemade meals become second nature, nourishing both diner and cook.
