"The holidays stress people out so much. I suggest you keep it simple and try to have as much fun as you can." ~Giada De Laurentiis
A few recipes take a little longer than the usual Cook It Quick recipes. However, as you can make them ahead, you can choose a time to make them preparation time when you schedule is less busy.
Check our tips on Holiday Food Preparation, Food Safety and Healthy Eating. You'll find:
- Food substitutions
- How to send food to people in the military
- Much more!
Cook It Quick's Goal
Our goal is to make you "hungry for healthy food" by offering tips and delicious, quick-to-prepare, inexpensive recipes.
Preparing these recipes and using the tips will help you increase consumption of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. At the same time, you will reduce sodium, solid fats, and calories. Food safety tips are included.
