Every recipe in this superb collection has been specially adapted and time for advance preparation. When the Working Wife transforms herself into the Cook she spends only a few minutes in the kitchen to provide the finishing touches. Dinner then cooks itself while she relaxes or talks to her husband, or plays with the children, or serves the canapés.
The dishes offered here would be a delight to cook even if she had all the time in the world, just as they are a delight to any diner who is lucky enough to be served them. The recipes cover such delectable main dishes as Duck with Apricots, Veal Cordon Bleu, Tongue with Piquant Sauce, Boeuf Bourguignon, Cannelloni with Chees Sauce, Lobster Tails Fra Diavolo, and Baked Salmon Casserole.
