The Six O'Clock Scramble: Quick, Healthy, and Delicious Dinner Recipes for Busy Families

 

by Aviva Goldfarb

Review
The Six O'Clock Scramble
is an excellent cookbook for quick to prepare, healthy family dinners.  Lots of fresh vegetables, but no hard to find ingredients or over-complicated instructions, and most recipes can be prepared in 30 minutes or less. This is also a great cookbook to use to get your kids involved in meal preparation and cooking.  The recipes are extremely varied, and include a good selection of vegetarian meals.  Aviva Goldfarb has organized the recipes by season, so you should have no problem finding any of the fresh ingredients needed for a particular recipe. Nutritional information is provided with all recipes, along with many very useful tips and hints throughout the book.

One of the things that makes this a very user friendly cookbook are the recipe lists.  Recipes are listed by Season at the begining of each section, and all recipes are again listed twice in the back of the book, once by Category and again in Alphabetical order.

I recommend this as an excellent choice for families with children, or for anyone who has to cook everyday for 4 to 10 people.

Book Description
Six o’clock looms, and dinner has to be on the table pronto, the kids don’t care if you’ve just come home from work exhausted and out of ideas or spent the afternoon ferrying them from school to playdate to tae kwon do practice. The Scramble to the rescue! Each weeks worth of recipes is utterly organized, easy-to-prepare and designed to please both adult tastes and finicky children’s palates. Everything is homemade, with a clever reliance on just enough prepared or packaged but never fake foods. Inventive, flavorful, and healthy are Aviva Goldfarbs watchwords; her Scramble recipes include: Recipes that can be prepared in thirty minutes or less. Weekly menus so parents need only shop once a week. One vegetarian main course per week. Meals that kids can help prepare. Fun foods for lunchboxes, after-school snacks, or weekend get-togethers. Complete nutritional information for each recipe. Dinners like honey-glazed salmon, Asian turkey burgers, and Moroccan Chicken that will please the whole family.
