Mad Hungry Cravings

Your family has a hankering–a yen for chicken tikka masala or queso fundido, for shrimp pad thai or a Philly cheesesteak–and they want it bad. So you decide to eat out at a local ethnic or roadside restaurant, or do take-out. It’s expedient, but is the food really that good? Really really good? Because Lucinda Scala Quinn’s versions of all those dishes families crave will knock your socks off and prove beyond a doubt that the foods you love can be made better, faster, tastier, cheaper, and more healthfully at home.

Lucinda Scala Quinn is all about smart strategies that simplify and make for great taste, so why outsource feeding our families when it takes less time, money, and effort to cook these favorite comfort foods ourselves? And why miss out on the untold gifts of sitting at home with your family around the dining room table? So next time there’s a request for pulled pork or deep-dish pizza or chicken fettuccine Alfredo, or cold soba noodles or fried rice, forget about soggy takeout and overpriced restaurants–just crack open this book and you’ll find simple recipes for all those dishes your family wants to eat, right now.
