This is a book that takes into account what every mom knows: family schedules and budgets are incredibly tight; not everyone will be eating together every night; convenience foods cost; and kids are picky eaters. With Cook Once a Week, Theresa Albert-Ratchford, a personal chef, cooking instructor and food columnist, has done the impossible--she's turned dinner-hour insanity into an enjoyable, family-friendly time.
