9781416542766: The Dinner Fix: Cooking for the Rushed

50 FAST, DELICIOUS, and COMPLETE DINNERS

Everyone knows that time equals money, and no one knows it more than those responsible for feeding a busy family. Sandi Richard is North America's foremost meal planner, and it's no wonder: She is passionate about getting families back to the dinner table. She should know; she raised seven children of her own.
She and her husband, Ron, put everything on the line 10 years ago to share Sandi's passion. They took all of their own experience feeding a family and combined it with a 5-year study of meals from other busy families. Then they self-published Sandi's first meal-planning book. Released in 1999, it was followed by two more books in the Cooking for the Rushed series.
The reaction was immediate, strong, and grateful. Here was a savvy, funny, organized, experienced voice to provide a simplified weekly meal plan. She provided grocery lists, prep times, and cooking times as well. With Sandi Richard by your side, you'll never find yourself in that dreaded spot: It s 5 p.m., and you have no idea what to feed your family for dinner.

The Dinner Fix is Sandi's latest contribution to the happiness and health of families everywhere. The book boasts 10 weeks of balanced recipes and meal plans that include grocery and equipment lists. In addition, color-coded recipes help you match each meal to your life each night from hectic weeknights to days when there is extra time to devote to cooking and eating. Each meal has its own photograph (a helpful preparation tool) and nutritional information, from the amount of fiber to diabetic food exchanges.

Bring Sandi Richard into your kitchen so you can spend less time in it, turning the stress of making dinner into a deeply delicious event each day for you and your family. (The Dinner Fix and The Family Dinner Fix are the same book. The Dinner Fix revised version is the most recent printing.)

Review:

THE DINNER FIX is not just another recipe book; it's the perfect guide for busy parents to plan, prepare, and cook healthy, delicious meals for the entire family. --Dr. David C. W. Lau, MD, PhD, FRCPC, Professor of Medicine, University of Calgary, and president, Obesity Canada

Food Network Canada star Sandi Richard presents a wealth of quick, family-pleasing recipes for harried cooks in a compilation that redefines ;user friendly.;...Richard's time-conscious approach begs comparison to megastar (and fellow Food Network personality) Rachael Ray. --Publisher's Weekly

I'm not one to sit down and send emails like this, however, I feel a strong urge to let you know how much your cookbooks have changed my life (yes, it would seem a cookbook can do that). My name is Nicole. I am a 30 year old wife and mother of two young boys. After the birth of my second son, it seemed my cooking inspiration went out the door along with my skinny pants. Even though I enjoy cooking, with a new baby and a picky eating preschooler, I now had very little time to spend in the kitchen and could never seem to come up with a creative answer for the question 'What's for dinner?' besides fish sticks or shake n' bake chicken. I needed quick meals that were healthy, tasted great, appealed to both my 2-year old and my husband & I, and didn't require 2 hours to prepare or packing up the kids for multiple trips to the grocery store. I was desperate to find something that inspired me but everywhere I looked, I found nothing that seemed to help.

I guess I had no idea how much stress mealtimes were generating. Both me and my husband are strong believers in the family mealtime, but mealtimes seemed to be turning into something far from enjoyable now that we added kids to our mix. Then one day, in a book store, I picked up your latest Dinner Fix cookbook because I saw a few recipes and pictures that caught my eye. That evening I started reading and I am forever changed. I absolutely love this book. I can't believe how happy, inspired, and at peace this book has made me. I no longer struggle wondering what's for dinner, my husband loves coming home to see what's being cooked up and my toddler is even trying things I never dreamed he would. In addition, the meal planning approach has impacted my sanity at the grocery store, and on the financial front. Since I only buy what I know I'll be cooking, we waste so much less and eat out much less often. And it feels so good offering meals t hat I know are healthy.

I can't stop talking about your cookbook to my friends and family and have bought several copies for a few of my friends in the same boat that I was in. Your recipes are wonderful, and I love how you make the most amazing meals so simple to create.

Please keep up the fabulous work. I can't begin to express my gratitude for the help you've provided me and my family through your books. --Nicole Lechelt
