Four hungry brothers. Three ravenous sons. A husband who loves to eat. Lucinda Scala Quinn has spent much of her life feeding the men and boys in her life and teaching them how to feed themselves. Now Scala Quinn — chef, television personality, and Martha Stewart Omnimedia’s resident food guru — shares winning strategies for how to sate the seemingly insatiable, trade food for talk, and get men to manage in the kitchen.
She provides recipes for single-skillet meals and dinners that yield fabulous leftovers and that are a cinch to stretch for extra guests. Her grab-and-run breakfast will help kids start the day right, and her healthful drinks make it easier for guys to say no to soda. Scala Quinn’s recipes are easy to prepare, affordable, and so good that even the most finicky eater will want to dig in.
Along with her cooking techniques and survival strategies (“Never be caught without bacon”), Quinn muses about life in a predominantly male household and provides empowering advice to feed guys’ spirits as well as fill their bellies. With her help, homemade meals become second nature, nourishing both diner and cook.
Most of the time with cooking and eating, the rules are clear.
