Fast, full-flavored recipes that go beyond the ordinary.
Most quick-recipes collections promise a lot but deliver very little. Bland, uninspired dishes may be fast, but will you make them again? And clever gimmicks sound great, but in reality they rarely make much sense. The team at America's Test Kitchen has created easy-to-make 30-minute recipes that guarantee impressive results from minimal effort. With a little test kitchen know-how (and relentless testing and retesting), we found ways to make naturally fast dishes even faster and traditionally slow-cooker dinners a weeknight option. But one thing we never did settle on were shortcuts that shortchanged flavor. Some compromises simply aren't worth making, and a few extra minutes of cooking translates into time well spent. No matter the path taken, every recipes here is foolproof, full-flavored, and fast. It's time to make weeknight dinner interesting again.
