Food, Fast (But Not Fast Food)

We've all fallen into the fast-food trap. Especially with small apartment kitchens, it's easy to be tempted by a quick bite. But as the The Washington Post recently pointed out, is it really quicker? The Post followed one mother's plight to keep her son and his friends from squandering their pocket money - and appetites - on fast food. She set out to prove that it's just as easy to turn out tasty classics at home. The verdict of the 8-person panel of judges (7 teenage boys and one girl)? They're lovin' it.

How did she do it?
