Review

"I believe family meals are one of the most important traditions you can pass along to your children. As a chef, and devoted father, I applaud Amanda's insight and dedication to her passion - One Family One Meal. Her thoughtful inclusion of the entire family in not only the meal itself, but preparation of the meal is so valuable and truly brings the joys of family, cooking and eating full circle." Michael Mina, Chef, Restaurateur and Author of MICHAEL MINA: The Cookbook, father of 2

"Amanda's passion for feeding children well is unparalleled. She believes that giving kids real food - and making food a centerpiece of family life - is an enriching experience for kids and parents alike. One Family One Meal is timely, and the tools Amanda masterfully provides are both handy and creative."—Kirsten Tobey, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer, Revolution Foods, mother of 2

"The greatest joy of cooking is gathering around the table and sharing a home-cooked meal with your family and loved ones. I love Amanda's motto of One Family One Meal, because as a chef and parent myself, that's what I believe in, and Amanda has definitely mastered mealtime with modern food for the modern family in this cookbook! Her recipes are simple and delicious, without sacrificing flavor or fun, and most importantly, they're healthy and nutritious for the whole family."—Todd English, James Beard Award-Winning Chef, Restaurateur and Author of Cooking in Everyday English, father of 3

As a working mom to two kids, ages 6 and 3, I need help with making dinnertime run smoothly and offering meals that we all will eat, which are cheap, healthy, wholesome, fun, and varied. I subscribe to Amanda's online menu planner, One Family One Meal, and so I pre-ordered my copy of Real Family Food a while back. When it arrived two days ago I was so excited.

First, this book is good looking. Beautiful photos grace every page. The table of contents isn't made up of a list of words; it is four pages of little photos so the kids can pick out what they feel like!

Here is what happened:
My kids poured over the book when I showed it to them. Then my 6 year old son asked how he could mark the pages. I offered him strips of torn notebook paper. He marked so many pages that he kept running out of paper! That night, we read the book like a bedtime story. His jaw dropped when he saw the peanut butter panini with chocolate drizzle!

So last night, we made the Strawberry Agua Fresca drink and BBQ chicken sandwiches and coleslaw for dinner. The kids helped me every step of the way. In the middle of the preparations, my son exclaimed, "We can throw away ever other cooking book!" !!!!! And also, "I'm getting very worked up over this!" He was so excited that he decided he needed to run in the backyard to pick flowers for the table! Holy cow! Last night's dinner was one of the most excited and fun meals our family has ever shared. I am thrilled.

Today, he was already looking through the pictures again and tearing slips of paper!

Frankly, this is the best family cookbook I have ever seen. Others tend to be filled with fast, but rather unpalatable offerings more geared for kids than foodie parents. This strikes a nice balance.
I love this book.

I have triplet 6-yr-old boys who are NOT the best eaters...I also love to cook...my pantry is full of cookbooks. I have followed the author's website at One Family, One Meal for a year and have really appreciated her approach and enjoyed using recipes from the site. Needless to say I was thrilled when this cookbook became available! The pictures make the food come to life and are especially exciting for my kids. They have sat at the table 'reading' the cookbook and picking out recipes from the day it arrived. In fact, the cookbook sits in the middle of our table when I'm not using it in the kitchen! Last week alone my kids ate Indian-inspired food (the chicken mango wraps), Italian food (the turkey lasagna), Thai food (the Thai chicken bowl) and I used her delicious lime vinaigrette to marinate chicken for fajitas. I NEVER would have imagined my kids eating that kind of variety in a single week. This book is a savior to me and to my kids and it is so well priced! The satisfaction I get from being able to make yummy homemade meals my whole family will eat is priceless. Everyone with children under the age of 18 should have a copy of this book and use it regularly!!

Bought this as a resource for both a healthier lifestyle and in hope of transitioning our baby to HEALTHY table food instead of junk. Guess what? Every recipe is delicious and a hit. Our daughter, now 17 months, enjoys the pizza with grilled onions on it and the pasta with fast tomato sauce. The pumpkin muffins are divine and a wholesome family fave (toss in some shredded carrots and no one notices!). Cannot recommend this highly enough. Every recipe is yummy. I work full time and these are easy enough to make on a weeknight in 30 to 45 min. and know you're nourishing your family.

I do not cook very often--my husband is the chef in our home. But I was off work this summer and decided to start making dinner a few nights each week. I read some excellent reviews of this cook book and decided to try it--since I also want to cook healthy and somewhat quick meals. I have already tried about 5 recipes out of this book and each one has been a great success! They all use fresh, simple ingredients and tasted absolutely delicious. The only downside is that now my husband expects me to cook more often.

Such a user friendly book from the clear organized way recipes are laid out, obvious labeling so you know what diet each recipe is appropriate for, mouth watering photos and most importantly food the family can prepare and eat together. Amanda Haas is a genius giving families an easy way to combat picky eaters, cook healthy and simply eat a delicious meal!

Wow! As a kitchen challenged, single dad, it is not always easy to find recipes for healthy food that are also easy to make. This book nails it! My daughter wants the meatballs every night. Even better, she is now into doing the prep with me! By the way the author's website is very informative too!

This cookbook is unbelievable. I can't find a recipe in it that my family doesn't like, literally. Sounds like an exaggeration but thus far I really can't find one they don't want me to make again. I guess there is the dessert my 12 yr old daughter made (gluten free s'mores) that we all pleaded with her not to make too often because my husband and I ate way too many of them.

I own more gluten free cookbooks than I'd care to admit. Ditto for online gluten-free recipe subscriptions. I never end up making most recipes again because they either have tons of ingredients or my kids don't like them. During the past 2 weeks I've probably cooked more from this one book than all of my other books and blogs in the past year! There are so many delicious and easy recipes that everyone in my family can eat. I can't believe this cookbook wasn't written specifically for gluten free or dairy free families, but I know it wasn't because as my kids say... it tastes like "normal" food!
