Carla believes that delicious food is an essential and attainable part of life, no matter how busy you are. The key is to have recipes up your sleeve for every situation. The most successful home cooks choose dishes they actually have time to make, based on what they already have on hand. So, the recipes in That Sounds So Good are organised by needs we all have: quick stovetop suppers and one-pot meals for weeknights, big salads, grain bowls, lazy lunches and all-day roasts for the weekend. Whatever you choose to cook, the food will be Carla to the core – bold, unique flavours with straightforward methods and swap-friendly ingredients. There are dishes like Fat Noodles with Crushed Herb Sauce, and techniques like finishing dishes with an all-purpose Spicy Creamy Sauce (after the kids have taken their share) or a shower of Garlic Crunch Crumbs.
Throughout this book, Carla shares strategies that keep cooking efficient and quick, like what to make ahead and how to use up all those wilted greens in the depths of the fridge. Perfect for a busy family.
