I have now tried several of the recipes from this book and they have been very good, however, I think some of these "recipes" are just too simple (lots of opening cans and mixing them together). If you have no idea how to cook, this is a great starting point with some really good ideas, but if you are an experienced cook, love all fresh ingredients and don't mind the challenge of cooking from scratch it might not be what you're looking for. If you want to try some of her recipes before buying, try something from her blog--she's got some great ones. The good news is that the recipes in the book are all new and not available on the blog, so at least if you buy the book you're getting something new that isn't available elsewhere. These recipes have also been great for my teenage daughter who is learning to cook. Well worth the money.

I wanted to let you know you can easily find recipes inside this kindle edition cookbook. Under Contents, just click on what section you want to view, then it takes you to that section where the recipes are listed, click on the recipe you wish to view and wah-lah! It is easy to navigate. I only wish there were more pictures.

I am a BIG fan of the picky-palate site and I cook primarily with her recipes since they always turn out fantastic and end up being staple meals that my family requests over and over.

When I cook with Jenny's recipes I never feel like I am wasting my time or money. Shopping for ingredients is easy (hit up Trader Joes and Costco for almost everything you need). She provides a "Pantry Must-Have" list in the beginning which makes whipping up her recipes mid-week even easier.

What most impressed me about the book is that it did not end up being a bunch of recipes that I have already seen over the years on her site (unlike some other bloggers). There are a tiny handful of items in the book from her site, but they are the seriously delicious ones.

I pre-ordered the book and spent the past weekend cooking up a storm around here: Oven baked BBQ Chicken (on the cover), Weeknight Mashed Potatoes, Apple pie and Buttermilk Pancakes. The "Momma's Homemade Mozz.-Stuffed Meatballs - these freeze well- (pg99)" and "Green Chili Chicken and Lime soup (pg145) are to die for.

Excited to tell everyone I know about this recipe book and I wish Jenny Flake all the best!

Picky Palate is a fantastic blog I have been following, and I am equally thrilled with Jenny Flake's new bound cookbook that arrived at my home this past week. What a great one it is! We are parenting a young family of picky eaters, and the Picky Palate cookbook has so many great ideas to satisfy both parents (adventurous eaters!) and kids (selective and strong-willed!) alike. The well-photographed recipes call for common, easy-to-stock ingredients--a balanced mix of healthy and wholesome and tasty--to make the meals special yet easy, & worthy of gathering for family dinners. It was my birthday present to myself, and our family is glad to have it!

The Picky Palate Cookbook is filled with easy-to-follow recipes for the home cook whether you have picky eaters at home, or you just appreciate great tasting food! The book is filled with many stunning photos that will make your mouth water just looking at them! There are recipes in this book that I know I will make year after year.

Looking forward to this book since announced : ) I Love it! The book is fabulous, best cookbook I can see people who have no idea how to cook being able to use this book and follow the easy instructions to impress your family. The day it arrived I made the Sweet and Smoky Pork Tenderloin everyone LOVED IT! Last night we made as a family the Butter and Herb Whole Roasted Chicken and vegetables, the Creamy Mashed Potatoes and we also made her homemade ranch dressing which was perfect and all super quick & easy to make! They all really LOVED the Potatoes so much so that my son was talking about them on the way to school. He was talking about left overs for tonight and that daddy would probably like the roasted potatoes from the chicken more.....I know he was saying that so he could have all of the mashed LOL! There are so many easy great recipes, I can't wait to make many more! I always say if I get one good recipe for my family from a book then it is worth it. Well, day 2 and we already found 4!!! I also love Jenny Flake's food Blog I have made lots of recipes from online but I really like to have a book in my hands. Trust me I have over 50 cookbooks and you can't go wrong with Picky Palate. Did I tell you that I LOVE IT!!!!

Very few cookbooks contain a variety of foods my family will actually EAT. I'm happy to say that this book covers all bases!!

Not only is it full of beautiful photos and spiral bound so it lays FLAT, but it covers an array of recipes from quick breads, to dinners, to desserts. There are beef, chicken, fish, and no meat options to suit any palate, and the recipes are simple enough for busy weeknights.

I have enjoyed Jenny's blog for years and I am happy to say that this cookbook does NOT disappoint!! It will have a permanent space on my kitchen counter for years to come.

The Picky Palate Cookbook, like the website, provides great recipes and meal ideas for busy moms who are faced with the dilemma of what to feed their picky little eaters. This cookbook provides delicious choices based on family preferences for healthy, home-cooked meals. It is a must-have cookbook for every family!!!
