Sometimes (a lot of the time, actually) we just need a quick, satisfying weeknight dinner option. The answer is almost always: Tacos! They're easy to pull together, and highly customizable. We serve them with a side of the taqueria-style pickles that we love so much we put a recipe for them in the new edition. #joyofcooking

Joy History Lesson: Did you know John William Becker, Marion Becker's husband, was an editor and contributor to the 1963 and 1975 editions of Joy? His work on Joy is usually a surprise to most people. Marion commented on his work, saying, John has always contributed verve to this undertaking. His constant support and his crisp, creative editing have become an integral part of the book. #joyofcooking
