"What I love about Kelsey's approach to cooking is that she doesn't use her role as a parent as an excuse to compromise the quality or frequency of her cooking. As mothers, Kelsey and I agree that cooking for a family should inspire rather than limit possibilities in the kitchen. In The Naptime Chef, Kelsey takes her favorite recipes, from Four-Bean Chili Mole to Black Bottom Peanut Butter Pie, and tweaks them so that they can be prepared while the baby naps. Baby or not, this book will help anyone who thinks they're too busy to cook to absolutely flourish in the kitchen."
"Great for new parents."

“The Gen X Martha Stewart has a whole book full of delicious, and easy (she makes them during her daughter’s naptime—get it?) recipes that make you feel happy inside.”
"Naptime for baby is often naptime for exhausted parents as well. They may want to reconsider how that time is spent with this smart book. Every one of Banfield's recipes comes with a "Naptime stopwatch" telling you how much time you need to prepare the dish and cook it while your child is sleeping. Founder and editor of The Naptime Chef (thenaptimechef.com), this mom from Fairfield, Conn., proves that you don't have to give up great home cooking after the baby arrives, just shift strategies to keep the flavor but be more efficient."
Kelsey Banfield is the founder and editor of TheNaptimeChef.com, and producer of The Naptime Chef Cooking Show, found online. She writes for various other publications including Babble and New York Family Magazine’s Yummy Delicious blog. She lives in Southern Connecticut with her husband and her daughter, who still takes afternoon naps.
