S7 E4: Double Down

Double Down

Sara has got nearly a week's full of meals with the simplest idea — cook once, eat twice. Day one starts with a spicy roast pork that's easy and delicious. Day two, that pork is transformed into a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich. On day three, dinner is Peruvian baked chicken thighs that are transformed on day four into chicken and tomatillo salsa nachos. On Ask Sara, Sara answers a viewer's question on the best way to get kids involved in the kitchen. Recipes: Spicy roast pork; My banh mi; Peruvian baked chicken thighs; Chicken and tomatillo salsa nachos.

Sunday Comfort Meals

Why rush? Sunday meals are all about comfort, familiar dishes made with love and eaten with family and friends. On top of the list is Roast Chicken Stuffed with Zucchini and Cheese to keep it moist and flavorful. Deviled Bones sounds gothic, but it's meaty, tender short ribs coated with a kick of mustard for heat. Odd Lots Mac and Cheese is a winner with the whole family, and the best part - any leftover cheese will do! And Sara's Creamsicle Dessert will bring back comforting memories of the ice cream truck in summer.

His Agnello Scottadito with Heirloom Tomato Salad mixes tender lamb with the freshness of a homegrown tomato salad. And of course, there's pasta. This has Pesto, String Beans and Potatoes. Bellissimo!
