Who doesn’t want to eat cheaper? And who doesn’t want to
eat better? And who wouldn’t like to sit down to a dinner
of Salmon Pasta with Tomatoes and Dill, or Pan-Fried Pork
Chops with Pepper Medley, or Enchanting Enchiladas, or
Moroccan Meatballs over Couscous—and know that any one of
these meals (for four) costs less than $2 a serving?
In their two previous cookbooks, Desperation Dinners! and
Desperation Entertaining!—together with over 330,000 copies
in print— Beverly Mills and Alicia Ross showed us how to
save time in the kitchen without ever sacrificing flavor.
Now the Desperate duo turns to the universally appealing
idea of saving money, too. Cheap. Fast. Good! is not a
penny-pinching cookbook—it’s a “get smart” cookbook. It’s
about planning smart, shopping smart, cooking smart, and,
not coincidentally, about eating smart. The work of two
brilliant problem solvers, it presents 275 delicious
recipes that are thrifty, quick to prepare, and
intrinsically family-friendly and healthy, too: Barbecued
Chicken and Black Bean Burritos, Sweet Onion Chowder, Bayou
Stew, Ham and Asparagus Crostini, Basic Beef Brisket,
Perfect Spinach Pesto Pizza, Gayle’s Country-Style Steak,
Souped-Up Chicken Stroganoff. Recipes are filled with
techniques for pushing flavor, substituting ingredients,
and using what’s in the refrigerator or pantry already, and
every chapter includes strategies for running a kitchen
more economically—The When, Where, and How of Shopping, The
Miracle of Menu Planning, Making Your Own Convenience
Items, Cutting Up a Roasted Chicken, and more.
