On International Women’s Day, I was thinking about the different types of paid and unpaid work that I do every day—writer, recipe developer, editor, blogger, self-promoter, social media manager, chauffeur, laundress, housekeeper, and family cook are just a few of them. Of all of those jobs, family cook is the one that challenges me most often. Every day I ponder the question of what to make for dinner for my family of picky eaters. Every day, I’m pressed for time to shop for and cook a meal, so I look for shortcuts that will cut down on the time it takes to make something healthy that my family will enjoy.
