Many recipes claim to be quick and easy, but few live up to expectations.

With the craziness of the holiday season, I’ve been wanting – and needing – quick-to-pull-together lunches. Given the choice, I prefer not to have cold lunches so sandwiches or salads are out. In the end, I usually have leftovers or cook something easy.

When Stephanie Stiavetti sent me her just-released cookbook co-authored with Garrett McCord, "Melt – The Art of Macaroni and Cheese" (Little, Brown & Company, November 2013), I was blown away by the gorgeous photography and creative mac and cheese combinations.


While flipping through the book, I came across a recipe that called for soba noodles, Brussels sprouts and Parmesan. It sounds like an odd combo, but if you’re an eclectic cook like me, you probably have these ingredients sitting right in your pantry. The recipe was oh-so brief and simple; I was sold!
