Even Simplified Pad Thai has more ingredients than a typical quick dish. But this adaptation by Cook's Illustrated editors in The Best 30-Minute Recipe (America's Test Kitchen, 2006) pares the list to essentials - like fish sauce - now widely available in supermarket Asian food aisles. Lime juice and brown sugar sub for the tamarind flavor. As the noodles soak, you can prep other ingredients. Simplified Pad Thai (Makes 4 servings) 8 ounces thick rice stick noodles (fettuccine-width)

Imagine a quick and convenient way to make everything from swordfish steaks to chicken breasts taste flavorful. And, as a bonus, it's relatively low fat. The secret is a marinade called adobo, as essential to Cuban cooking as olive oil is to Greek cooking. Basically it's a mixture of seasonings, garlic and sour orange or lime juice, in which the food is coated rather than soaked. In Steven Raichlen's Miami Spice (Workman Publishing), the author refers to adobo as a "fragrant paste of garlic, salt, cumin, oregano and sour orange or lime juice that is Cuba's national marinade.

Some ingredients are naturally sophisticated, and some aren't. A potato? Certainly enduring and vital, but a basic of the vegetable bin. Then there are leeks - charming and mysterious. Leeks are more popular in Europe than in the United States, and that also gives them cachet. Never mind that green or basic yellow onions are a cheap alternative. They aren't leeks. Leeks are great in soups and stews, but since they are expensive, why hide them? Instead, turn the stalks into an elegant seafood bed. Leeks resemble scallions with middle-age spread, but resist the urge to choose the fattest available because they tend to have woody centers.

Here's my idea of fast food: scallops! These tiny sea-scented bites of pure pleasure go from freezer to the dinner table in just a few minutes. Unlike other speedy dishes, scallops don't exact a high price in excess fat and calories. A whole pound, more than enough lean protein to serve four, weighs in at less than 400 calories, under 100 a serving. Scallops are short work even if you're the kind of cook who keeps everything edible in the freezer and never remembers to defrost until it's time for dinner.

An excerpt from the blog "My Daughter's Kitchen. " I know the last recipe for Thai lettuce cups sent my daughter in search of unfamiliar ingredients, namely lemongrass and fish sauce. So in the interest of thrift, not to mention continuing to expand her horizons, I offer a second recipe to use up those ingredients while they are still fresh: Thai Coconut Chicken Noodle Soup. It seems a perfect restorative for these March days, when the weather can't make up its mind.
