Late Night Meals for Two

Late Night Meals for Two

Message from the author:

“Both my husband an myself work full time. Every day we eat breakfast, lunch, and a late dinner. We want to eat together but there are inevitably days where we get home as late as 10PM. It’s just not possible to check what’s in the fridge, whip out a cookbook, and cook a bunch of dishes that take well over 30 minutes to prepare at such a late hour. Eating so late at night isn’t good for the waistline either.

The recipes introduced in this book are balanced yet low-calorie, simple to make, and will leave you with a full stomach. All of the recipes are part of my late-night dinner repertoire and I hope they will help you eat delicious, home-cooked meals no matter what time of day it is.”

This cookbook is designed for dual-income families everywhere. Filled with delicious, vegetable-rich, low-calorie recipes that can be made within 15 minutes, Late Night Meals for Two will solve all your after work cooking worries. Author Shirasaka also describes how to take delicious-looking photos with your smartphone so you can share your creations on the net.
