Getting a wholesome, homemade meal on the table after a busy day can be easy, and Diane Phillips shows you how in You've Got It Made. This book features 150 recipes that can be prepped and assembled ahead of time, refrigerated or frozen, and baked right before serving. Dishes include everything from appetizers to entrees to desserts, with casseroles, quiches, gratins, pasta and grain dishes, potpies, breads, fruit cobblers, cookies, and more. Recipes include Prosciutto Palmiers, Honey-Teriyaki Chicken Wings, Asian Braised Short Ribs, Pork Osso Buco with Parmesan Polenta, Tuscan Stuffed Chicken Breasts, Old-Fashioned Mac and Cheese with Variations, Seafood Florentine, Bananas Foster French Toast, and Chocolate Lava Cakes. For each recipe, Phillips gives you tips on do-ahead preparation and how best to freeze/refrigerate your meals, and her thorough introduction covers all the basics of making food in advance, including ingredients, equipment, food safety, and technique.
