This review is from: The Mom 100 Cookbook: 100 Recipes Every Mom Needs in Her Back Pocket (Paperback)
I read good things about this new cookbook in a magazine and then online here at Amazon. This weekend we had 9 for dinner and I made the Lamb Chops with Lemony White Beans and Spinach from the chapter titled "mixed company dinners". The meal was FANTASTIC and very easy to prepare!! My guests were super impressed and the 3 kids present all ate their lamb and sampled the beans (a friend contributed a pasta salad side which the kids preferred - oh well). For dessert, I made the Gingersnaps cookie recipe and followed the author's instructions for homemade ice cream sandwiches. We ate these outside with paper towels before the end of the evening. The ice cream sandwiches were amazing!
My only concern is the proofing/editing of the book... the Gingersnaps cookie recipe calls for 1 egg, but the recipe instructions refer to "eggs" plural... this is sloppy editing... I've found this issue before in a Martha Stewart cookbook I own and like very much... it's annoying to wonder "did I need more eggs? or is this an error in the directions?".. in this case, I suspect it was 1 egg needed because the cookies tasted great.
I look forward to trying more recipes - thanks to the other Amazon reviews for recommending the book.
