Marcie Rothman believes that good, fast and satisfying food can be affordable... even on a pinched budget. If you buy smart, and cook with easy methods, you really can have a great dinner for $5 - no matter what the economy is doing. Marcie has studied with Wolfgang Puck and Ken Hom, and is a longtime member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals.
