Description: Most of us don't have the time and energy after a long day to spend an hour preparing dinner, but a satisfying meal is a pleasure that's a shame to miss. 

Cooking to Beat the Clock has the answer. Sam Gugino offers dozens of recipes that let you put a casually elegant dinner on the table in fifteen minutes, from the time the ingredients are laid out on the counter to the time you sit down to eat. Those fifteen minutes even include the time it takes to chop vegetables, peel potatoes, and boil water. But the author's amazingly quick and wonderfully appetizing recipes are only part of the equation.

Gugino's innovative quick cooking techniques have won him a James Beard Award nomination and the gratitude of thousands of harried, hungry folks. His real secrets are teaching how to work efficiently in the kitchen and showing how to stock the pantry with the essentials that make fast meals possible. In Cooking to Beat the Clock, he explains how to get organized the minute you walk in the door, so dinner happens quickly and painlessly. His brilliant time-saving tips drastically cut the preparation time for a delicious meal-sized entree. 

Cooking to Beat the Clock gives you a whole new way of thinking about cooking. It's amazing but true, dinner can be ready in fifteen minutes, start to finish!
