Have you ever wished that there're more than 24 hours a day so that you can have the time to cook healthy meals for yourself or your family instead of eating out all the time?
Is "What's for dinner?" a question that you ask yourself or your partner every single day?
Or perhaps you are really tired of the same old recipes and you are looking to try new things but it's so easy to get lost in the sea of recipes on the internet.
Hi, my name is Sharon Chen, the creator behind StreetSmart Kitchen and a seeker of anything that makes our time in the kitchen short, sweet, and worthwhile.
As a new mom, I realized that finding the time to decide what to cook, go grocery shopping, step into the kitchen, then prep and cook becomes a wild, unrealistic dream. So I started batch cooking a bunch of food over the weekend and quickly warm it up whenever I need to eat during the week. Having food in the fridge puts my mind at ease. So many of us have a busy schedule to keep. This approach can really be life changing.
That's why I developed and hand-picked 18 of my most popular and practical one-dish recipes and compiled them into a cookbook for busy folks like you to download.
Top 18 One-Dish Meals cookbook contains delicious meals that don’t require intense preparation before you put them on the dining table, but they also don’t call for heavily processed foods like condensed soups for the sake of making things quick and easy. It's designed for busy people like you who don't have a lot of time to spent in the kitchen but would like to keep up with a healthy lifestyle, which includes what you eat every day.
Now, let's set the expectations up front. This is not a 15-minute dish cookbook, so I did include recipes that can take up to an hour to make. However, you can pick a recipe, batch cook during the weekend, enjoy it and save the rest for the week. Most of the recipes in the book are freezable. I suggest you freeze the food in single serving portions, so you know exactly how much food you need to defrost and warm up when you are ready to eat.
I also encourage you to read the notes in each recipe for prep-ahead suggestions. You’ll be able to make your delicious and nutritious weekday meals in a breeze.
Here are the 18 delicious one-dish meals included in this cookbook.
All recipes contain easy-to-follow instructions, vibrant photos, and nutrition facts to help reach your nutritional goals.
And this is just the beginning!
My mission is to help you be efficient and smart in the kitchen to build and maintain a healthy eating habit for you and your family. That's why I publish tried and true recipes on this blog, and create practical cooking tips, and how-to guides,... for free!
