No matter how busy you are, Carla Lalli Music believes that delicious food is an essential and attainable part of life, as important as a good night’s sleep or getting dressed in the morning. The key is to have recipes up your sleeve for every situation. Carla knows that 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 organized by needs we all have: quick stovetop suppers and one-pot meals for weeknights, big salads and grain bowls if you want to burn a little cleaner, and lazy lunches and all-day roasts for the weekend.
Readers will know that whatever they choose to cook, the food will be Carla to the core–bold, unique flavors 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 or a shower of Garlic Crunch Crumbs. Through it all, 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.
