The running joke in our house is how stressed I get over cooking. Whereas Scott’s comfortable experimenting with a dish composed of the few ingredients in our fridge (last week’s hard cider turkey legs were a delicious winner), I need to carefully plan everything out.  

Unfortunately, after a long day of work and after-work shenanigans, I don’t have the energy to plan a meal. Plus, I’m too hungry to concentrate. The end result: I convince Scott that we need to dine out or pick up food on our way home.

Don’t get my wrong, I love Cleveland restaurants — which makes it that much harder to eat at home sometimes. However, I’m always trying to find a better balance for me (and my wallet) when it comes to dining in versus out. Sometimes that means planning my meals days in advance instead of scrambling the night of.

That’s why I’m excited to give away a pair of tickets to see Rachael Ray in Cleveland. She’ll be in Rocky River on December 14.to sign and discuss her new book Week in a Day.

The companion book to her cooking show of the same name, Rachael Ray’s Week in a Day features more than two hundred recipes that will help you prepare five nights’ worth of meals in a single day.

Each week has a different theme, such as ‘From a Taco to Morocco’ and ‘A Chicken in Every Pot,’ and recipes include Chicken and Chorizo Spanish Enchiladas, Argentine Chili with Chimichurri, and Zinfully Delicious Short Ribs.

The thrift-hound that I am, I’m most excited about the section “1 Grocery Bag, 3 Meals,” which shows readers how to fit all the groceries you need for three great meals into – you guessed it – a single bag.

    I literally gasped when I saw your giveaway – I’d LOVE to see her!

    My favorite dish to make when I’m busy is Lentil + Rice Nachos/Tacos. Delish!

    I love to make sloppy joes! Normally I have all the ingredients already so one of us just has to stop and pick up the buns. I also keep a jar of Mid’s Meat Sauce around in case of emergency hunger – it’s a great sauce when I don’t have time to make my own and it’s a local company. :)

    My favorite dish to make when I’m busy is baked chicken tenderloins. I simply sprinkle a cookie sheet with grapeseed or olive oil then lay the tenderloins down, sprinkle with oregano, cilantro, cumin,and sea salt, and bake at 350 for 30 min. (My oven is kinda strong..) Then just microwave some steamer bag of veggies and we’re good to go!

    Favorite quick meal is quesadillas…about as easy as making grilled cheese sandwich, possibly easier, and can be healthier if you use cooking spray vs. butter

    My favorite dish to make when I’m busy is tacos, because they can be a catch all for leftovers (chicken, beef, different types of cheese, etc). Yummy!

    I subscribed to your page and I followed you on Facebook. I LOOOOVE Rachel Ray’s food! My favorite is her corned beef with sweet and sour onions and wilted cabbage sammies. I make them for guests ALL the time and get rave reviews.

    A super quick and easy dish when I’m extremely busy is to get a loaf of garlic bread, spread some premade pesto sauce on it and bake it. Then, layer it with basil, fresh mozzerella and tomato. It’s very quick, yummy and filling!
