This book is great! I loved "The Family Dinner Book". This is a great follow up. The breakfast recipes alone are worth buying the book for. Lots of great ideas for busy families who want to eat healthy. All of the recipes have fresh ingredients - and not too many ingredients! I love the purple "k's" throughout the book that signify that the recipe includes ways for kids to help.

I checked this out from the library mostly because I wanted some healthy recipes that I could con my kids into eating. Here's the rub, I have two picky eaters, but both go different ways. I have one who has always been borderline vegetarian, she consumes very little meat, but likes seafood. The other hates seafood, raw tomatoes (but will eat them cooked, weirdo) and anything that "looks too healthy." No, I'm not quite sure what that means, that's just what I'm told. They're teenagers by the way. Luckily, both are usually willing to try anything once, they may not finish it, but at least they know if they like it or not.

The teenage boy (or man child) is big into sports, weight lifting, running, challenge courses and so forth. He tries to pack a lot of protein into his diet, but he's getting bored with things.

Teenage girl, not really a problem eater, she usually eats whatever I make, but she's kind of bored with things too. She's into some sports, loves swimming, but she's not after any nutritional goals like her brother is.

My needs for both are to make sure whatever they're eating is healthy, that they are both getting what they need from their food, and to not have boring or "weird looking" food options.

This book was fantastic for our needs. Both know how to cook, both have taken this and made things on their own from it, and both have liked them. I've tried several of the things they've made and, though I'll never admit it to them, they've probably made it better than I would have. All of us have tweaked some things, more herbs and spices here, swap out for something else there, but all have been good and the kids have insisted I buy this book and that we try anything else like it.

I love all the simple recipes in this book! Each one that I have attempted has turned out beautifully without fail. The recipes are truly inspiring and they are teaching my family to incorporate more vegetables and healthy grains into our diet. Simple, tasty and incredibly good indeed.

I heard Laurie David on NPR talk about Family Cooks and the movement to be more mindful about what we put in our mouths. Dr Robert Lustig recently opened my eyes to what evil lies in all the sugar we eat and I have tried to minimize the many forms of sugar in our diets. And now I have my new favorite Family Cooks cookbook with easy to understand nutrition facts and amazingly easy recipes (with delish photos!). My college age children are all over it and I'm sharing Family Cook among our friends and family network. High praise.

Great book for newlyweds starting out. Wish I had it years ago to set me on the path to healthier cooking for my family.

I tend to have an addiction to accumulating cookbooks and using them once or twice, but this one has earned its place at the top of the stack. I've been so happy with the recipes I've made so far. Laurie David has approached the cookbook with a well-rounded view of what mealtime can be.

I often struggle to balance interesting recipes, healthy ingredients, time, and energy. I have found that The Family Cooks does this for me in a way that fits my lifestyle perfectly.

The pictures are beautiful, the tips are useful, and the food is really good.
