Introducing the lifesaving cookbook for every mother with kids at home—the book that solves the 20 most common cooking dilemmas. Whats your predicament: breakfast on a harried school morning? The Mom 100s got it—Personalized Pizzas are not only fast but are nutritious, and hey, it doesnt get any better than pizza for breakfast. Kids making noise about the same old lunch? The Mom 100s got it—three different Turkey Wraps, plus a Wrap Blueprint delivers enough variety to last for years.

Katie Workman, founding editor in chief of Cookstr.com and mother of two school-age kids, offers recipes, tips, techniques, attitude, and wisdom for staying happy in
the kitchen while proudly keeping it homemade—because homemade not only tastes best, but is also better (and most economical) for you. The Mom 100 is 20 dilemmas every mom faces, with 5 solutions for each: including terrific recipes for the vegetable-averse, the salad-rejector, for the fish-o-phobe, or the overnight vegetarian convert. “Fork-in-the-Road” variations make it easy to adjust a recipe to appeal to different eaters (i.e., the kids who want bland and the adults who dont). “What the Kids Can Do” sidebars suggest ways for kids to help make each dish.

Review:

"For mothers juggling careers and their own personal lives, Workman offers this helpful guide to cooking nutritious meals for the entire family, even with picky young eaters in mind. Workman, founding editor-in-chief of Cookstr.com, presents all this in a witty, accessible cookbook that offers 100 staple recipes ideal for families, including Monday Night Brisket, Broiled Miso Cod Fingers, and Grilled Pizzas. She provides easy alternatives to her basic recipes and includes notes on how children might participate in the cooking process. She suggests ways to introduce new foods, such as with simple chicken fingers: there's a quick preparation, which the next time can be prepared crispier, then topped and baked with mozzarella and marinara for chicken parmigiana. To get kids to try new foods in, say, sautéed spring vegetables-have them help snap off the ends of beans. Workman interjects plenty of humor in her cooking, and that helps elevate this volume above the average cookbook. Photos. "

For many moms coming up with ideas for meals, then cooking them, can be one of the most frustrating things about family life. Even moms who love to cook may not feel there’s enough time to put healthy, tasty food on the table day after day and night after night. The Mom 100 Cookbook: 100 Recipes Every Mom Needs in Her Back Pocket comes to the rescue. Author Katie Workman, founding editor in chief of Cookstr.com, has written a cookbook that can help moms consistently serve food their families will love, and maybe even get their kids to help make it.

The Mom 100 Cookbook is divided into sections that make it easy to find what you’re looking for. And the recipes are presented as solutions to dilemmas. For instance, the chapter titled “Potluck” describes the dilemma as “How’d I get stuck with making the main dish.” I know exactly what that feels like. Usually, when potluck plans are made I feel confident about what I can do in the future, but when the time comes to actually make something, I fall short of ideas. The solutions presented here, recipes with chicken, beef, pork, turkey and rice, all seem easy to make, beautiful to present and satisfying to eat: just what you hope for when you make something for a potluck.

There are 20 chapters in all, covering breakfast, lunch, snacks, soups, salads, main course meats, vegetables, dessert and more. There’s also a great section at the end called “What You May be Looking For” that categorizes the recipes. So if you’re looking for something that can be made in 30 minutes or less, make-ahead dishes, or main courses to impress someone (as well as many other categories) you can quickly find which recipes in the book fit.

I particularly like Workman’s side notes, such as “what the kids can do” and “vegetarian note.” Also, she starts each chapter with notes about what she’s learned along the way that are good overall tips for the types of food she’s cooking.

I tried several recipes in the book and found they were all tasty, easy to prepare and looked nice when I served them. While The Mom 100 Cookbook won’t truly fit into your back pocket, the format it’s in is easy to lay out on a counter without worrying about the pages closing and losing your spot just when you’re following a crucial step�"quite a plus as far as I’m concerned. This is one cookbook that I plan to shelve for easy access and frequent use.

The publisher provided me with a copy of this book to review.
