Whether you're a high-powered businesswoman, a health care worker, a teacher, or maybe an out-of-time soccer mom, The Frantic Woman's Guide to Feeding Family and Friends is the very book for you to put good, wholesome and pleasing-to-the-eye meals on the table in little time. And, by the way, save money at the grocery store too.

Mary Jo Rulnick, author of the well-received The Frantic Woman's Guide to Life, has brought her good sense into the kitchen with great ideas to make your life and, as a result, that of those around you, less frantic. She has laid out two 14-day menu plans for each season of the year and developed menus to cope with left-over meats from holiday dinners. The best part for me are grocery lists, placing all the ingredients needed for upcoming meals right before your eyes.

Of course, there are recipes to make these meals easy and timesaving while still retaining flavor and diversity. Throughout the book are tips to make the load even easier, such as Family Fun or Summer Grilling, and including Aunt Mary's Secret. Recipes abound to make use of seasonal foods. It makes sense to utilize fresh ingredients when they are available. Tastes better and costs less in the long run.

The Frantic Woman's Guide to Feeding Family and Friends is a must for the busy woman, and a useful resource even for the not-so-busy woman.
