Mark Bittman cooks the way that he writes: efficiently and straight to the point. His tips are simple and they don't mess around -- and neither do his recipes. The dishes he shared with us this week are the reliable kind, the kind we know will deliver when our day has been long and we just need something good. And they're all made with basic, healthy ingredients. Leave it to Mark to show us that minimalist recipes can often be the most satisfying.
