Should be a staple in every parents kitchen!

Dads are good cookers too! My wife purchased this book because she liked the title. My oldest daughter always tells me that I am a "good cooker". The book is full of wonderful healthy recipes that are perfect for moms and/or dads who enjoy cooking but have limited prep time because of work life commitments. The book has tons of full colored pictures and easy to follow recipes. I am sorry that we didn't spring for the hard cover. My wife really enjoyed the "mom cooker tips" that the book has scattered throughout. Easy to follow and includes recipes not easily found by just searching around the Internet.

Gabbie Krivonak believes that moms can have a career and provide delicious and nutritious meals for their children. She believes in family dinners and finds they are an opportunity to for families to talk over the day and while doing that, encourage good nutrition. She begins with teaching you strategies and techniques for planning out your meals, making them fun, and sharing simple cooking tips. Then she gives you an assortment of homemade recipes for sauces and dressings for a variety of foods.

The rest of the cookbook is broken down into stages of life, including The Toddler Years, The Elementary School Years, The Teenage Years, and finally, recipes for the Empty Nesters. I found this way of breaking up the recipes unique. I remember certain recipes that I wanted to make would not be something my toddlers would have eaten, so I either had to make two meals or just forget about making it. As you move through the stages, the recipes become more varied. You will find breakfast food, salads, and main dish recipes as part of every stage.

For most of the recipes, Krivonak shares some family history about the recipe and several of the recipes have photos. I wish all of the recipes had photos with them as I appreciate seeing the finished product. The recipes are full of regular ingredients you can find at your local grocery store or in your pantry. They are easily understood and simple to prepare. I feel I can't give a proper cookbook review without trying out a recipe. I chose to try out the Hungarian Goulash from The Elementary School Years Chapter. There are several recipes I am looking forward to trying out and if they are all as good as the goulash, then I won't have any complaints from our family.
