Company-pleasing meals and tips ? Potluck and take-to-a-friend dishes ? Family prayers and Scriptures

Here’s help to prepare family meals that are mom-tested, kid-approved . . . and way beyond boxed macaroni and cheese -- Publisher

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book! I have *thee* fussiest 2 year-old eater on the planet. We've had an occupational therapist and a nutritionist working with us on my daughter's eating for close to a year. When she finally started eating, I got this book so I could try new things for her. Tonight I made the Chicken and Stuffing recipe which was very easy to make (and inexpensive), but it looked so complicated on my daughter's plate I said, "She'll never eat it.." But tonight was the very first night she nearly cleaned her plate! My husband and I kept saying, "Slow down." I have tried a few of the recipes from this book, and my husband says the reason my daughter likes them is because they are flavorful. So many kiddy cookbooks are lacking in flavor, which is very important to my daughter.

And we like them too!

The definite pros of this cookbook are:

1) the ingredients are easy to find - most of them are probably already in your kitchen.

2) it's very practical!

3) the recipes share a lot of common ingredients and they're inexpensive, so you don't end up spending a fortune at the grocery store.

4) the recipes are EASY (almost impossible to mess up) and very convenient for the busy mom or dad.

5) they are flavorful!

Also, the book is filled with little suggestions and stories, which I find annoying in some books, but I found extremely clever, helpful and endearing in this book. A lot of writers try writing their cookbooks in that familiar "passing on recipes from a friend to a friend" format, which usually feels very contrived to me. I thought this book, however, succeeded in doing that.

I've had my fair share of disappointments with cookbooks, but not with this one.

Format: Paperback
This collection of recipes, assembled by the MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) from it's member's best-loved recipes was an answer to prayer for me! I found this little book after a long, frustrating and almost fruitless search for a family-oriented cookbook that didn't send me to the grocery store every time I opened it. My family has liked everything I have tried from this cookbook, it's all been ultra-easy to make, and the shopping is a breeze. The book is also full of little anecdotes, hints, suggestions, tips, and get-the-kids-in-the-kitchen activities which make this book a delight to read.

But this review isn't without it's criticisms--I must say that one of my fellow reviewers is right--it does have quite a bit of butter in it, and admittedly, it's got its share of canned biscuits recipes (but boy, they are soooooo good!) but not enough to dismiss it outright by any means. After reading and reveiwing scores of "family" cookbooks, I found that for your family's menu, you really can't get it all in one cookbook--sometimes you're going to want to fall into the First Rule of Really Really Good Food and make a real crowd pleaser. (What's the First Rule of Really Really Good Food? You know it: The More Fat It Has In It The Better It Taste, n'est pas?) And of course, a lot of the time you're going to need help making it healthier, and then in some cases, there's the budget to consider.

So with that in mind, don't expect this little book that's written primarily for quick and easy eats to have it all. If you need food that's healthy, I recommend Better Homes and Garden's Kid Favorites Made Healthy. But for myself, I find that sometimes I do want to spoil my family and make something easy and quick.

I just received this book and though the recipes are original and fairly simple, I am disappointed in the amount of fat in them. Most recipes have a generous amount of butter in them. I like the section on appetizers and snacks.This book has something for everyone, including a vegetarian section, but I would really like to see these recipes tailored to cut out some of the saturated fats and include some whole grains. White flour and sugar are also common ingredients.

I flipped through a copy of this book at one of my MOPS meetings, and went right out and bought it. That night I decided to "doggie-ear" the corners of the pages of the recipes I would like to try! There were only about 10 recipes I didn't!! Everything I have made from this book has been what my husband calls a "keeper". There are also practical solutions on how your child can help you prepare meals, and what to do about picky eaters, etc. I HIGHLY recommend this cookbook.

Many cookbooks are tempting to read but impractical to cook from every day. This one on the other hand is full of fast, easy, and delicious recipies that are great for kids and adults. I have never made anything from this book that didn't dissapear at the table; the microwave carmel corn is especially good. This is an outstanding book to get for your self or to give as a gift to any mom or dad.

All I have to say is I love this book! It is so easy to follow and the ingredients in every recipie are so practical. Most cook books have 5o ingredients and are so complicated. This one is simple, to the point and great for kids and adults alike. And most of the recipies take less than an hour!!
