Probably when most people spy a book like Jeanne Kelley’s Salad for Dinner at the bookstore or in their library they pick it up and think Mmmm, this looks nice and healthy. Or: I could afford to shake up the Romaine routine. My first thought? A veritable treasure trove of potentially deconstructable dinners. True, I can look at almost any meal and envision how it can break down into child-friendly, nothing-touching, no-green-speck meals to please the sauce-o-thropes at the table.

Grilled Ribeye Steak with Onion-Blue Cheese Sauce Good grief. Help me. Help me now. This was delicious. Good steaks do not need sauce. But they’re every bit as delicious with a good sauce as they are on their own.

I found this veggie burger recipe just by chance, as I am not vegetarian (even if I admit I’ve been eating always less meat). I found the recipe interesting and decided to try it. It is that kind of recipe that the only idea makes you feel good and in shape. Only healthy ingredients that together are really tasty. I changed one ingredient of the recipe: I used brown rice instead of sunflower seeds. Not because I have anything against sunflower seeds – just because the ones I found were not unshelled, and after 45 minutes unshelling them, I got only a tablespoon…and the recipe asked for a cup!
