In Episode 308, I prepare double dinners that appear in entirely different roles on consecutive evenings.
My easy strategy for quick meals in Episode 308 of Sara’s Weeknight Meals…
is to cook once, eat twice. Spicy Roast Pork is a simple and delicious meal any night, but a visit with my brother to a Vietnamese food joint inspired me to turn that pork into delectable pork Banh Mi Sandwiches later in the week. Sautéed Duck Breasts one night become delicious Peking Duck Wraps the next. Magic! You will find the recipes right here! more »

In Episode 306, I make three Julia-inspired recipes.
Remembering Julia: I met Julia Child in 1979 when I managed to wrangle myself a behind-the-scenes job on her public television show, “Julia Child and More Company.” We taped that show three days a week for three months, and during that time I got to know Julia and her team well.
At the very beginning, I was prepared to sit at the foot of a master and do whatever I was told. But that wasn’t Julia’s way. She wanted the… more »
