Recipes to rescue a tired home cook

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published March 19, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.

Food writer Ellise Pierce of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram admits the last thing she wants to do after a long day of testing recipes is cook dinner. So what does a beat food writer eat at the end of the day?

She has some super-easy, go-to meals — avocado smashed on toast with a drizzle of pistachio or hazelnut oil; scrambled eggs and chevre in a tortilla, splashed with hot sauce); a heap of baby spinach or arugula topped with a poached egg and Parmesan — but even these get a bit boring after a while. To keep from falling into a rut, Pierce also opts for dishes that are a little more substantial such as chopped steak, chicken tacos and hearty salads that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less.
