Item Description...
Once known as the Queen-of-Incapable Cooking, Brook has been spotted securing saram wrap with sailor knots, baking a cherry pie without pitting the cherries and coloring unboiled Easter eggs. Frustrated with the lack of a family dinner hour in her home (her husband had opted for large lunches at work(, she set out to create a cooking system (much to her husband's dismay) that would allow her to put great meals on the table quickly.

A CEO, mom, wife, daughter, volunteer, church-goer, author and speaker, Brook's time is at a premium.
Her hunt for the perfect dinner focused on recipes that met the following five Rush Hour Rules...

-All ingredients are pronounceable through the phonetic use of the English language.
-Each ingredient can be found in the market without engaging in a full-scale scavenger hunt.
-No list of ingredients shall be longer than the instructions.
-Each recipe has to be durable enough to survive the Queen-of-Incapable-Cooking.
-The Rush Hour Cook's finicky child will eat it-or some portion of it.

The result? Brook created weekly menus that fed her family while eliciting compliments! Now she brings her Weekly Wonder Menus to you, complete with grocery lists, so you can also implement this simple cooking solution in your chaotic kitchen!

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I like it!  Aug 21, 2006
I really like the shopping lists. It is nice knowing that after I have been to the store I can prepare a week's worth of menus and I never have to say, "oops, I'm out of..."
That part is great. So far, my husband and the rest of my family are really enjoying the recipes.
Cookbooks with Personality  Jan 23, 2006
Brook Noel is delightfully funny and her cookbooks are a result of all the years where she was learning to cook and accomplished tasks with amusing results, like the time she baked a cherry pie without pitting the cherries. Not unlike one of my aunts who made a cherry pie without straining the cherries from a can but can make the best lasagna in the world.

So, everyone has their strengths and Brook Noel is especially good at creating recipes for cooks who don't have a lot of time to spend cooking, but want to get dinner on the table and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment from making a meal at home. After all, you have marathons to run, yoga classes to attend and scrapbooking parties to go to, not to mention decorating, gardening and reading your favorite books and a list of other favorite hobbies and activities.

Weekly Wonders is filled with recipes, weekly menus and grocery lists. If you want to make cooking part of your life, Brook Noel will show you how to get dinner on the table fast and it will also taste delicious. This will encourage family time and give your family a moment to reconnect in a busy world.

Some of the delicious ideas include:

Making your own salad dressings - Buttermilk, Italian, Garlic and more...

Delicious Marinades using fresh herbs - Rosemary-Basil, Red Wine Marinade with Garlic

Making homemade pancakes ahead of time and freezing them. I will admit to doing this and tossing them in the toaster.

Making your own cinnamon applesauce - something I also learned recently and love using Braeburn apples.

Recipes that are easy to adapt to your tastes: Chocolate Banana Smoothie - you could substitute soy butter for the peanut butter. When making the Orange Juice Smoothie, you can also use any fruit you prefer.

Delicious Recipes:

Lasagna Rolls
Rosemary Broccoli
Beef Enchilada Casserole
Tuscan-Style Pork Roast

Ever wondered how long buttermilk lasts or when you should toss the leftover salad dressings? A list of freezer and refrigerator storage dates makes this book even more useful. Recipes like the one for Balsamic Vinaigrette encourages you to learn the basics but also experiment and add your own herbs and spices. Weekly Wonders is a book filled with realistic recipes for cooks who love cooking, but just don't have a lot of time.

Book Noel is an amazing creative force for good in the world, I'm reading all her books.

~The Rebecca Review
I am REALLY cooking!!! And I actually sort of LIKE it!  Oct 16, 2005
Okay. I have been with my husband for almost 6 years. And during that time, I think I have probably cooked around 40 meals not using a box or frozen prepared item. And I was in complete agony from the moment I attempted to pick a dish to cook, all the way through to washing the dishes. Then, last week my Weekly Wonders book showed up!!!

First off, I thought I hated to cook and thought I would until the day I die. There were always too many expensive wierd ingredients to come up with, the instructions were often too legnthy or cumbersome, I had to spend a LOT of time flipping through pages to write out grocery lists and I would invariably leave something off, or not buy enough, etc. I have TONS of cookbooks, but would pick just a recipe or two to try, then be sick of the whole deal.

This book is different. It's a lifesaver with the grocery lists. I wish there were more books on the market in this format. Because of my aversion to the flipping missing ingredient gathering in individual recipes, I have been sticking to the lists and cooking the entire weekly menus. Some of it did not sound appetizing, but I did it anyway and I am discovering we actually LIKE this food! Not all of it. But we have a pact to eat everything in the name of variety. There is a lot of fresh produce and meat involved in these recipes and so each meal has been an adventure. Quick to cook. Simple steps. Fast. Fairly Tasty. And for crying out loud, I actually have exactly what I need to cook these recipes with, no more and no less! No emergency trips to the grocery store right in the middle of rush hour for one stinking missing item! YAY!

No more going into shock and then a coma with the question "What are we having for dinner?" I know every night before bed what tomorrow's dinner will be! No more chopping for hours and eating at 10 pm! No more boxed frozen crap! No more emergency runs to a burger joint! The number to the pizza place has been removed from speed-dial and it's completely okay!!!

I am so excited to be finally cooking food on a daily basis. I feel like I have reached a semblance of "normal". And my husband is so pleased! Thank GOD for this book! And you too, NOEL. Please make a volume 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6!!!! I WOULD buy them! This is likely to be a Christmas present for all the girls in my family.
No more guessing what to make  May 23, 2005
The best part about this book is that I can just take the shopping list and not have to think about what I'm going to make for the week. Since the menus are so kid-friendly, my picky family isn't groaning about what I'm cooking anymore.
Woo HOO!! Hat's off to Brook Noel  May 22, 2005
This is the most incredible book. I felt like Brook was in my kitchen and knew what a real family would eat--and how much a time the average person has! I am so pleased with this cookbook and it has made my life easier in many ways. Hat's off to Brook Noel!
