Now, the secrets to being able to cook quick and nutritious meals in the time it takes for a sitcom plot to be revealed are collected here by mother and son team Nancy Mills and Kevin Mills.

Love these books!   Feb 21, 2007
"Faster! I'm Starving!" is too good! It has enabled me to cook fabulous meals quickly after work each day. The salmon patties are a huge hit with my partner! I couldn't recommend this book more . . .
Easy, Fast & Tastes Delicious!!! Great for a working Mom!!!  Dec 8, 2006
We work 6 days a week full time and have a toddler so we are always looking for easy but delicious & healthy meals. The book was recommended to me and it has saved me time.
Moreover many of the meals we have made are delicous.
My favorite is the Spicy Skirt Steak!!!
WORST BOOK EVER!  Nov 21, 2006
i bought this bought so I could get creative for my kids meals. But the meals in here are gross, I wouldnt even eat them!! This may as well be listed under adult cookbooks, No way would kids eat this stuff. Look elsewhere, I am returning this asap!

Quick and fun!  Sep 28, 2006
Kevin Mills and his mother, Nancy Mills, who wrote "Help! My Apartment Has a Kitchen!" have now come up with another winner, "Faster! I'm Starving!" It's a fun and funny cookbook, well worth reading even if you never use a recipe from it. But you will - use the recipes, that is.

Limited preparation time is required for meals that Mills (the son) says can be finished within the timeframe of a sitcom. They advocate using bags of prewashed lettuce, precut fresh broccoli, cauliflower and other salad bar ingredients, frozen chopped onions, bottles of crushed fresh garlic and the "smaller and thinner" method of cooking (the more surface of a food that is exposed to heat, the faster it cooks).

Stir-frying, high-temperature roasting and gas grilling are some of their favorite methods of cooking, thus there are no stews or roast turkeys in their book. Although this is not a 3-5 ingredient cookbook, the following recipe give you an idea of the humor and simplicity of the recipes.

Black Bean Wraps

Serves: 4 (2 wraps per person)
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 4 minutes
Time-saving tip: Use cilantro-flavored olive oil and skip the cilantro.

Black Bean Wraps may sound like a new-age facial treatment (and if it removed blemishes, I'm sure people would use it, even if it left them smelling like a burrito.) But they're actually quick, homemade soft tacos. The ingredients are flexible, depending on what you have available. But if you serve them without the black beans, the name will be hard to justify.

3 scallions
1 large red bell pepper
½ cup fresh cilantro
2 15-ounce cans black beans
1 15-ounce can whole-kernel corn
1 4-ounce can diced green chiles
3 tablespoons olive or corn oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon black pepper
8 8-inch flour tortillas
Grated cheddar cheese (optional)
Hot pepper sauce or Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce (optional)

Rinse and trim the scallions and cut them into ¼-inch pieces. Rinse the bell pepper, cut it in half, remove and discard the stem and seeds and then cut it into ¼-inch pieces. Rinse and pat dry the cilantro. Cut off and discard the stems and cut the leafy parts into ½-inch pieces. Drain the beans and rinse them under cold running water. Drain the corn and green chiles.

Put the scallions, bell pepper, cilantro, beans, corn and green chiles into a large bowl. Add the oil, vinegar, salt, garlic powder and black pepper and mix well and then set aside.

Remove the tortillas from their package, wrap them in a tea towel or paper towel and microwave on high for 1 minute. Transfer the tortillas to a serving plate. Spoon ½ to 2/3 cup of the bean mixture into the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and hot pepper sauce, if using. Wrap each tortilla, folding it at the bottom so the filling doesn't fall out when it's held upright. Serve immediately.
Basic recipes, same humor, no illustrations  Apr 14, 2006
This is the book to have for more of the tried-and-true simple basics. I am a fan of the first two books, because instructions were always easy to follow and I loved the humor and illustrations. This book has the humor and the recipes are perfect for beginners, but the design has changed. There are no quirky illustrations and the fonts have been updated. Please note that none of the books have photos of the final dish, but many of these recipes are well-known in American cuisine.
