Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Smoky cheese grits with summer succotash

    • acfrey on September 03, 2011

      Easy flavorful way to use summer vegetables. Great vegetarian option for main dish.

  • Creamy garlic dressing two ways: rich and slim

    • kari500 on June 12, 2016

      This is a really good, easy dressing. Likely to have all ingredients around. Made the rich way and loved it; will try the slim way too.

  • Buffalo rice

    • Kfaber on October 17, 2013

      Very tasty! Might go a tiny bit lighter on the blue cheese next time

  • Asian chicken salad with carrot ginger sauce

    • Toppermom on September 13, 2012

      pg 122. I made this last night. Really enjoyed the flavors. My husband said he didn't expect to like it but really enjoyed it. An easy and light dinner for a busy week night. The dressing is really good.

  • Turkish poached eggs with yogurt and sage oil

    • cellenly on April 21, 2020

      All the people in the family who liked tzatziki loved it, and those who didn't hated it. The yogurt/garlic sauce had that tzatziki feel to it. Didn't have sage so substituted basil and mint, and it was good.

  • Broccoli or broccoli raab pesto

    • hbakke on March 25, 2021

      Page 18. This has a prominent broccoli flavor and makes a very dry, paste-like pesto. I would recommend adding more oil.

  • Turkey meatballs with broccoli pesto and orzo

    • hbakke on March 25, 2021

      Page 185. This was alright. It may have been the prosciutto I used, but the meatballs were very salty. I did like the idea of the meatballs and the texture was great, but if I made this again I would decrease the salt in the meatballs and use a traditional pesto. The broccoli pesto was a bit too sulfur smelling to me. Just kind of weird.

Publishers Text

Sara Moulton may be a professional chef and television personality, but she’s also a working mother who has to get dinner on the table for her husband and kids every night. In Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners, she shares more than two hundred new family-tested, family-pleasing recipes. Whether you’re new to the kitchen or just looking for a way to spice up your recipe repertoire, Sara’s carefully tested recipes are a great place to start.

Chicken Saltimbocca with Artichoke Sauce is a welcome change of pace, while Oven-Fried Fish Sticks are a lighter update of a kid-friendly classic. If you’re looking to experiment with new ingredients and cuisines without venturing beyond your local grocery, the Korean-inspired Clay Pot Vegetable Stew and Sara’s take on Vietnamese Bahn Mi make it easy to try global flavors.

For a quick, pulled-from-the-pantry meal, try Polenta Lasagna or BLT and Egg Pie. Shake things up and serve appetizers like Pork Sliders, Asian Style, and Manchego-Stuffed Figs Wrapped in Bacon for dinner, or declare Sandwich Night and serve Picadillo Sloppy Joes. If you have a vegetarian in the family or you’re just trying to economize, flip to the chapter on vegetarian mains for recipes for delicious and nutritious fare like Tortilla Pizza or Rustic Potato and Greens Pie. For dessert there’s Butterscotch Pudding Cake, Warm Chocolate Cheesecake, and much more. And finally, on Sunday, when you have a little more time to cook, there is a chapter for comfort food that will cure the end-of-the-weekend blues and get the week started right.

Perhaps most important to the overscheduled home cook, Sara’s recipes help you cook smarter, faster, and cleaner. Each recipe lists cooking and preparation times, and easy-to-follow instructions streamline the process by integrating prep and cleanup into each step. Sidebars on shopping, storing, preparing, and serving share the tips Sara has collected over many years of answering questions from home cooks across the country. Creative, crowd-pleasing, and fuss free, the recipes in Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners make family dinner a pleasure for everyone.
