Description: Here the harried chef will find a wide assortment of dishes. For those evenings when you are running late and need a recipe that is really a meal-in-one. 

Gourmet Magazine's Individual Cornmeal Pizzette with Gorgonzola, Escarole, and Bell Pepper will surely surpass any pizza you can buy. Or, a warming soup might hit the spot -- White Bean Soup with Prosciutto and Sage or Vegetable and Bacon Chowder would be comforting and satisfying. A light entree salad is always pleasing, and Shrimp, Snow Pea, and Red Pepper Salad in Fresh Ginger Dressing and Spicy Asian Steak Salad are much easier than you would think. 

Or perhaps you just need a quick snack for an unexpected guest. Using staples that you have on hand, you can prepare Coriander Peanut Sauce with Crudites, Spicy Cheddar Puffs, or Bruschetta with Tomato, Anchovy, and Garlic in a snap. 

When there is a bit more time, turn to Gourmet's ten simple menus that provide exceptional meals without a lot of fuss. An Elegant Spring Dinner, featuring succulent Rack of Lamb with Tarragon Lemon Sauce; a Summer Harvest Luncheon, boasting Pasta with Bell Peppers, Goat Cheese, and Basil, and refreshing Zabaglione Mousse; a Lunch before the Game, with sensational Open-Faced Fried Shrimp Sandwiches with Ginger Mayonnaise; a Brunch for a Chilly Weekend, with a hearty Sausage and Grits Frittata and warm Cranberry Pear Cobbler... there are plenty of choices for your year-round needs. Plus, Gourmet's beverage suggestions for each menu will make your meals complete. 

When you are in a pinch, or when you simply want to try out something new, scrumptious, and quick, just turn to the recipe index when serving two, or the index of recipes that can be doubled when serving four. There is even a list of table setting acknowledgments to help you find the items pictured in the photographs.
