Today on the Living Backstory, we're happy to have Emily Scott, pastor of St. Lydia's — a dinner church in Brooklyn (www.stlydias.org) — as well as Everyday Food alum and St. Lydia's parishioner Heather Young. The church integrates a sit-down dinner into its service, and Heather has cooked more than a few Everyday Food recipes for the meal, feeding 30 people with different diets on a humble budget and with an hour or less of prep time.
This is the blog Heather wrote on "How to Make Cooking a Big Meal No Biggie": http://everydayfoodblog.marthastewart.com/2012/09/how-to-make-cooking-a-big-meal-no-biggie.html
And these are a few more of her favorite fast, easy, inexpensive Everyday Food recipes — perfect for the busy days leading up to Christmas and New Year's:
Pappardelle with Caramelized Onions and Parmesan
Spinach with Orzo and Feta
Penne with Two Tomatoes and Mozzarella
Baked Eggs in Tomato Parmesan-Sauce

Happy Holidays everyone.
