Shop for this week's Dinner in Minutes

Aviva Goldfarb, the Chevy Chase co-author of the 2006 "The Six O'Clock Scramble" and tireless spirit behind the SOS online dinner-planning service has followed up with a new cookbook called "SOS! The Six O'Clock Scramble to the Rescue" (St. Martin's). It's organized by season and earth-friendly. Prep and cook times are given, as are nutritional analyses. Lots of family-oriented tips are sprinkled throughout.
