Ellie Krieger, New York Times best-selling and award-winning author, has written a cookbook devoted to the kind of recipes that her fans have been waiting for—"make-ahead meals." For those who are always short on time when it comes to cooking, her recipes—which include breakfast bakes, soups, salads, casseroles, and more—can all be prepared ahead of time, making putting food on the table that much easier.
