“Sarah’s recipes are my favorite kind of recipes—wholesome, simple, and most important, strategic. Feeding young kids often requires a bona fide battle plan, and this book outlines that plan deliciously.”— Jenny Rosenstrach, author of Dinner: A Love Story and How to Celebrate Everything
“I consider myself pretty adept at cooking wholesome meals, but since I’ve had kids, I have found it more difficult to make something for dinner that everyone will eat. Sarah’s book is filled with ideas that help put a colorful and virtuous meal on the table without complicating things or taking a ton of time. I’ll be using this book as a weekly reference.”—Sara Forte, author of Sprouted Kitchen and Sprouted Kitchen: Bowl + Spoon
“Sarah Waldman’s Feeding a Family is filled with recipes for simple, wholesome, and seasonal meals. Maybe more important, it offers a recipe for cultivating a family mealtime tradition where stress and fuss melt away and togetherness takes center stage. Written in a style that’s relatable, upbeat, and encouraging, Feeding a Family gives parents of young children pragmatic tips for reclaiming dinnertime, one meal at a time.”—Erin Boyle, author of Simple Matters and creator of the blog Reading My Tea Leaves
“Sarah Waldman’s Feeding a Family manages to be beautifully modern and dreamily old-fashioned in equal measure. It reminds us that taking the time to cook from scratch is one of the most full-hearted ways to care for a family and provides the tools and season-by-season recipes to make it happen. The deliciously homespun desserts alone are worth the price of the book.”—Katie Sullivan Morford, author of Rise & Shine

As a health-focused home cook, she develops and offers recipes for simple, whole-food meals appropriate for every member of the family. Her work has been featured in Fine Cooking, Shape, Edible Vineyard, Food52, and The Coastal Table. Sarah lives on Martha’s Vineyard with her husband and two boys. On her blog (SarahWaldman.com) she shares healthy, seasonal recipes that celebrate a family-focused life.

It's a practical, delicious, yet fun cookbook and gave me new ideas for wholesome, healthy meals that aren't compromised in flavor. I think her book is so well-rounded because she has vegan options, vegetarian options, meat lover meals, healthy dessert options, yet she's not afraid to INDULGE too. Which to me, is a more realistic approach to food. Moderation, freedom, having FUN with food (not being afraid of the "bad" stuff), but also valuing food for it's nutrition too.
Other things I loved about this book:
-She gives great pointers on how to build your pantry and meal plan for the week. (She recommends having a couple of easy "pantry" meals each week with 2 or 3 meals that require more effort).
-If your cooking for company, she has laid out complete meal plans already, so you don't even need to think about what kind of side dish and dessert would go great with that main course (she's already done the work for us!).
-For each main course, she gives ideas on how to use leftovers for an easy throw together dinner the next night.
This book inspired me to head back into the kitchen and feed my family seasonal, yet EASY meals. I highly recommend it.
