100 dependable recipes including no-fuss weeknight dinners plus leisurely weekend meals to look forward to, from the bestselling author of Once Upon a Chef.
Years before she started her popular Once Upon a Chef blog, back when she became a new mom, Jennifer Segal kept a recipe binder divided into two sections: Weeknight and Weekend. This is how she thought about what to cook for dinner, and, fifteen years later, it still is.
In this versatile collection, you’ll find seventy recipes for fast and easy weeknight meals, like Sesame-Ginger Meatballs and Pecorino-Crusted Chicken with Rosemary, and thirty recipes for slow, soothing weekend cooking, whether that’s company-friendly Sear-Roasted Beef Tenderloin with Horseradish Cream Sauce or lazy Sunday morning Popovers with Salted Maple Butter. You’ll also find Jenn’s favorite desserts, like Cherry Ricotta Cake and Triple Chocolate Cheesecake, that are easy enough for the weeknight rush and luscious enough for weekend rest and celebration.
Featuring seventy all-new dishes plus thirty fan favorites from her popular blog, Once Upon a Chef, each recipe is tested and retested multiple times in Jenn’s home kitchen to ensure they are reliable, delicious, and sure to please every night of the week.
