Sara's Weeknight Meals" producers from left to right: Natalie Gustafson, yours truly, Adrienne Hammel

What if you could prepare a no-fuss meal on a weeknight that gave you a head start on an even quicker meal the next night? The starter recipes on this show help you to do just that.

This kind of utility speaks to my favorite way to cook, which is to open the fridge, pull out the leftovers, add a little of this and a little of that, and then sit down to a delicious new meal as if by magic. (I am not a blank canvass kind of cook. I prefer it when the ingredients guide the way.) You should definitely consider getting into the habit of always cooking more than you can eat in one meal, knowing that you can repurpose the extra food in a later recipe. It makes weeknight cooking so much easier.
