Cooking at Home -- Anyone Cheat with Prepared Foods?

Kara Elise | Feb 8, 2002 12:55 AM

If so, and I find it a huge help when preparing many courses, what are some of your favorite prepared foods to buy, then maybe doctor up? Or simply prepped raw ingredients -- already washed, chopped, etc.

For ex, in Cleve I found a Lebanese grocer who sold me washed, chopped parsley; another restaurant sold me some veal stock for my osso buco; another some of their fabulous red wine/shallot sauce for my filets. It saved me hours and hours!

Anyone have some good prep secrets?
