"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."-- Provided by publisher.

Loved this cookbook!  I have added it to my list of cookbooks to buy so that I'm not constantly hogging ELPL's copy.  I appreciate that she gives practical tips as to how to stock your pantry and refrigerator so that at a moments notice you can feed anyone, including three hungry male teenagers.  Her personal anecdotes and humor about food and cooking (her rant about the size of muffins is spot on) made me laugh.  I made her Italian Vinaigrette and Oatmeal Raspberry Smoothie and both were excellent.  This cookbook has healthy, flavorful veggie side dishes as well as heavenly-Oh-My-Gosh-we-can-only-eat-this-once-a-year-it has-so-many-calories splurge dishes.

If you check this out and like it try another title by Scala Quinn, Mad hungry: feeding men and boys: recipes, strategies and survival techniques.

Yummy!! The recipes and the pictures are inspiring. What I loved is that the recipes range from pretty complex to as simple as Upgraded Ramen Noodles. I saved quite a few recipes to try.
