I received this cookbook as a gift and was at first skeptical about making any of the recipes. Growing up eating and preferring Asian food, I thought to myself that I wouldn't find aything I would like in this book since it wasn't an Asian cookbook.

My 3 children convinced me to give some of the recipes a try. (Later I found out that my children had an ulterior motive. You see, they were tired of eating Asian food all the time.) They each picked out several recipes and we tried one or two a week. What a pleasant surprise we all soon discovered!

Our family never really liked lasagna since it was always too heavy whenever we ordered it. We also don't eat alot of dairy products. My family loves the 'Chock Full O Veggies Lasagna' with bechmael sauce. It has the right balance of creaminess to it without it being too dense and heavy. Even the grandparents, who would never touch lasagna before, love it too.

Another favorite is the 'Piping Hot Peanut Butter Soup'. The recipe title threw me off at first but my son who loves peanut butter insisted that we try making it. We can't get enough of this soup and you don't even realize there is peanut butter in it. As the recipe says the taste is hard to describe. This soup is truly delicious!

This cookbook includes so many ways to make a meal healthier and the recipes are loaded with lots of vegetables without hiding it. It has given me inspiration to venture outside my normal cooking and we continue to happily try new recipes each week ... and we haven't been disappointed yet. We even bought another copy that my daughter will be taking with her when she's away at college.

I got this book 2 weeks ago, and I've already made several recipes from here! They're healthy, tasty and easy to make. What more is there to say? I have 3 children 6 and under, and they ate everything I made--and they've picked a few more recipes out of the photo section they want to try! If you get this book and haven't checked out their website, blog, and podcast--you must do that immediately. I bring things I make from their first book to events all the time and get tons of complements. These Moms have made our life healthier--they can do it for you too!

No Whine with Dinner (don't you just love that title - it just makes me giggle!) is cookbook number two for the Meal Makeover Moms dietitian duo, Liz Weiss and Janice Bissex. Book one is The Mom's Guide to Meal Makeovers. This book, actually part cookbook and how-to sensible feeding guide for kids, has Janice and Liz's energy written all over it - from the front cover to the back page.

Liz and Janice, who are both moms of school-aged kids, whose joint mission is: to help busy families eat better. In all their efforts, including No Whine with Dinner, they get the time pressures and challenges moms (and dads) today are saddled with to feed kids healthfully day after day. There's no doubt about where this dietitian duo are coming from. They layout their premises upfront: "What we aim to present in No Whine with Dinner a whole new family food dynamic - one that fosters excitement and appreciation for fresh, nutritious food which gives children a choice and a voice in what's for dinner. We don't believe in `kid food'. (Amen, I couldn't agree more! Feeding kids this narrow list of foods we've come to call "kid-friendly foods" simply limits their palate and rich experiences with foods.) The Meal Makeover Moms also don't believe in this stealth health notion (sneaking in vegetables and other healthy ingredients). They prefer "subtle additions" of healthy ingredients. They realize that taste is king for kids (as well as adults).

No Whine with Dinner contains about 150 recipes. The book is divided into a logical flow from Morning Makeovers, to Lunch Box Winners, to Pasta and Pizza Favorites, to Sips and Smoothies and, of course, Dreamy Desserts.

A few new additions in this edition, all of the recipes are kid-tested, mom-approved.

I have been a big fan of the "Moms" since their first book a few years back, so i have been anticipating this followup book and it has not disappointed. I make a lot of meals in the slow-cooker so was happy to see they dedicated a whole chapter to the Crockpot! Particular favorites are the "Mile High Spinach Lasagna" and the beef stew. Hurray for the moms! My kids are even enjoying going through the new cookbook with me.

There are few pictures in this cookbook and even fewer in color. Most are poor quality black and white photos. Nevertheless this cookbook has some great recipes. There's a pantry list and if you have any questions you can contact them at their website (mealmakeovermoms) and they'll get back with you.
The pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes were delicious. I had my doubts about the Peanut Butter Soup but it has become a family favorite. These ladies know what they're doing that's for sure. I loved the Luau Chicken with pineapple and carrots, it was a little bland so I made a salsa of jalapeno, pineapple, cilantro and onion and I rubbed the chicken with mustard first.
Most of their recipes call for using low-fat, low-sodium, whole wheat flour, flaxseed, etc. so you know you're getting nutritionally sound meals.
I wish there had been more serving suggestions or combinations with the other recipes to make complete meals. If you're familiar with Super Suppers Cookbook she has additional serving suggestions on each page that correspond with other recipes in the book. Maybe the next edition of this book, that could be added??
Overall, cookbook delivers on what it says, but the lack of pictures really hurts. The pages are matte so if you get splatters on them, they're staying. I would not give this as a gift, if you need a wedding gift get Betty Crocker Cookbook (Bridal Edition Betty Crocker Books).
