The Mom 100 Cookbook
Introducing the lifesaving cookbook for every mother with kids at home—The Mom 100 Cookbook: 100 Recipes Every Mom Needs in Her Back Pocket—the book that solves the 20 most common cooking-for-kids dilemmas. What’s your predicament: breakfast on a harried school morning? The Mom 100’s got it—Personalized Pizzas are not only fast but are nutritious, and hey, it doesn’t get any better than pizza for breakfast. Kids making noise about the same old lunch? The Mom 100’s 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 don’t). “What the Kids Can Do” sidebars suggest ways for kids to help make each dish.
Cooks&Books&Recipes Editors’ Notes:
If you’re cooking for kids, this is your go-to cookbook. Each chapter addresses a common dilemma: Breakfast is “Getting the kids fed and out the door”; Main Dish Meat is “The kids can’t get beyond hamburgers and hot dogs”; Bake Sale is “You signed me up to bake what?”; Fish and Seafood is “Just eat the damn fish.” (That last one is my favorite.) The “Fork-in-the-Road” variations and “What the Kids Can Do” suggestions are brilliant peace-keeping strategies.
If you’re not cooking for kids, this is still a go-to cookbook. I’ll publicly state a dirty little secret: many (many) adults are picky eaters too. In addition, older adults have some of the same food restrictions as kids (e.g., dishes can’t be too spicy). This cookbook helps with non-kid dilemmas as well: the Appetizers chapter is “Offering the requisite dinner party predinner nibble”; Weekend Brunches is “A relaxing brunch that you have to cook”‘; Mixed Company Dinners is “Did I really invite all those people over for dinner on Saturday night?”
With kids or without, you can “find happiness in the kitchen” with the help of The Mom 100 Cookbook.
