Carla Lalli Music—the James Beard Award-winning author of the bestselling Where Cooking Begins and the host of “Carla’s Cooking Show” on Patreon—believes that no matter how busy you are, delicious food is an essential and attainable part of every day. She knows that the most successful home cooks choose dishes they actually have time to make, with ingredients already on hand, and have recipes up their sleeve for every situation.

In That Sounds So Good: 100 Real-Life Recipes for Every Day of the Week, Music organizes recipes by occasions we all experience: weeknight chapters offer quick stovetop suppers, one-pot meals, and dinner salads; while weekend chapters feature lazy lunches, simmering stews, and long roasts.

Bold, unique flavors, straightforward methods, and swap-friendly ingredients are present in dishes like fat noodles with crushed herb sauce, alongside techniques like finishing dishes with an all-purpose spicy creamy sauce or a shower of garlic crunch crumbs. Through it all, Music shares strategies that keep cooking efficient and quick, like what to make ahead and how to use up all those wilted greens in the fridge.

Known for anchoring the hit YouTube series “Back to Back Chef,” Music has also appeared in many other recipe videos for Bon Appétit. In conversation with Hetty McKinnon, bestselling cookbook author and regular recipe contributor to New York Times Cooking, Bon Appetit, Epicurious, and more. She is the editor and publisher of multicultural food journal Peddler and host of the magazine’s podcast “The House Specials.”
