Here’s what the publisher says about the Cookbook:
THE MOM 100 COOKBOOK delivers solutions to the 20 most common cooking dilemmas that every modern mom faces, providing recipes and tips for parents who are so baffled by their kids ™ food preferences that mealtime has become a minefield. Katie shows moms how to crack open the door for the salad rejecter and how to make an enticing entrÃ©e with whatever's in the fridge. Her recipes include brilliant shortcuts, such as a four-ingredient casserole perfect for family and company, and cooking flank steak in the broiler ”so quick and simple! And with Katie's straightforward approach to tackling everyday cooking dilemmas, it also makes for a candid read, with wise tips, personal anecdotes, and wry one-liners sprinkled throughout.
Because Katie knows what it's like to be a mom in the kitchen, her recipes also include special Fork in the Road suggestions (which lets you make one basic dish while still catering to different tastes,) as well as Make Ahead sidebars (recipes you can prepare in advance and store in the fridge or freezer for a quick, tasty, and healthy meal during the hectic week) and What the Kids Can Do sidebars (so instead of them getting in your way, you can include the kids in cooking dinner!)
Each of the 100 recipes is complemented by mouthwatering color photographs taken by Todd Coleman, executive food editor of Saveur magazine. The result is an attractive, easy to understand, indispensible resource that every mom will be grateful for every day of the week. Just one glance at this beautiful book, and I ™m sure you will agree with Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis, and Ina Garten ”who are among her biggest fans!
