Cooking Light returns with a new cookbook featuring 5-ingredient, 15-minute recipes for busy home cooks who still want to eat right with "Cooking Light: Fresh Food Fast 24/7."
With 280 recipes, there is sure to be something to please even the pickiest palate and will feed family, friends and just yourself!
The book opens up with a new feature, "Market to Meal Planners" a section of 10 shopping lists that are four nine recipes, including three dinners. The recipes use common ingredients, so you don't have to buy a specific ingredient for just one meal.
There are also recipes that feature "Feed Four for $10 or Less" - recipes that intend to help stretch your budget. "To-Go Tips" offer portable dishes that will stay tasty and "Switch It Up" lets you convert a recipe into a sandwich, salad or more!
The book divides into recipe chapters, "Breakfasts to Go," "Weekend Breakfasts & Brunches," "Portable Lunches," "At Home Lunches," "Snacks," "Cocktail Hour," "Weeknight Dinners," "Weekend Suppers" and Desserts."
Don't grab a donut on your way to work, instead, try recipes in "Breakfasts to Go" like Cinnamon-Raisin Waffle Sandwich, Cappuccino-Chocolate Chip Muffins, Sausage Drop Scones and more.
Take your time with "Weekend Breakfasts & Brunches" like Cast-Iron Breakfast Pizza, Buttermilk Pancakes with Caramelized Bananas, Cheese Blintzes, Mediterranean Hash Brown Cakes and more.

Even though it was mentioned in the breakfast foods, I made "Breakfast Egg Salad Sandwiches" for dinner one night. This ramped up egg salad gets extra flavor out of shredded sharp cheddar cheese and bacon. It was very easy to prepare one night after work, with very little prep work. And best of all, it made enough for sandwiches for the girls and myself and even extra for family and friends to try later! It made for a great cool sandwich on a warm evening.
"Cooking Light: Fresh Food Fast 24/7" is published by Oxmoor House. It is $24.95.
