These brand-new, mouthwatering recipes range from breakfast foods to family-friendly weeknight meals many of which are one-pot or meal-in-one and use budget-friendly proteins.

Recipes from the last edition have been updated based upon reader feedback over the years. 
There's also a new guide to special ingredients and where to find them
