Cooking Out of the Box: The Easy Way to Turn Prepared Convenience Foods Into Delicious Family Meals
Today, sharing the dinner hour is more important than ever for families who prefer the comfort of home cooking to eating out. But those doing the cooking would rather spend time with family than slave over a hot stove for hours.
Award-winning cookbook author Bev Bennett shows readers how to use convenience foods from the grocer's shelves as a base for delicious and easy-to-fix meals. By adding three or four ingredients to a box of Rice-a-Roni, scalloped potatoes, or cornbread mix, families will feel like they are eating sumptuous home-cooked meals that used to take hours to prepare.
