Bonus recipe: Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Olive oil

Rub cut sides of spaghetti squash with olive oil, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Place cut side down in baking dish, with enough water to rise up sides 1/2″ of dish. Cover with foil and seal tightly. Cook for 45 minutes or until tender.

We’d Rather Be Writing: 88 Authors Share Timesaving Dinner Recipes and Other Tips is exactly what it sounds like. 

Lois Winston, one of my co-authors in the Happy Homicides: Thirteen Cozy Holiday Mysteries anthology, has edited a collection of dinner recipes and tips for cooking, household, writing, and organization. 

My recipe for Chicken and Noodles is included, as well as some of my tips. I sent out the recipe for the noodles portion of this recipe in the October 1 newsletter. If you don’t subscribe to it, message me and I’ll send it to you.

The price is a very affordable and giftable $.99, with all proceeds being donated to No Kid Hungry. I love that the profits from a cooking book go to an organization whose goal is to end childhood hunger. It’s available for presale now, and will be available October 30 in both ebook and print formats.

All of the recipes were submitted with the understanding that they be fast and easy to prepare. I have a collection of recipes that I can have on the table within 30 minutes of walking through the door. 

I’d love to hear what your fast and easy recipes are!
