Rush Hour Meals: Recipes for the Entire Family

Rose Reisman admits that she was motivated to write Rush Hour Meals for a very personal reason. She has two new identical granddaughters and her daughter recently returned to work full time. Her daughter and son-in-law are committed to eating well, but running a household with two babies can be difficult. Enter the 115 recipes in Reisman’s latest cookbook (19 and counting!), most which can be made in just 30 minutes.

Reisman is a registered nutritional consultant and an adjunct professor in the department of health at York University in Toronto so in addition to prep and cook times, nutritional details are featured for every dish. There are dairy-free, gluten-free and vegetarian options, and also ideas to make each recipe more kid friendly. One of Reisman’s favourite recipes is the gnocchi with squash, kale and Parmesan -- it’s included here along with more dishes that are just right for fall.
