Overview

Cooking for a family can be a huge challenge that leaves you feeling like you're always making compromises. In Me, You and the Kids Too, Renee Elliott makes this do-able. She shows that you don't have to cook different recipes to please everyone at the table - and that you never have to sacrifice flavour or nutrition to get meals made without stress. Starting with delicious recipes that your family will adore, Renee shows you how to tweak each one so that you can make versions of that meal for your baby. Cook up Herb-Crusted Fish, for example, in just 30 minutes from start to finish. While you're preparing the main dish, you can follow the mini-variation recipes to make a Salmon with Broad Beans & Sweet Potato Puree version for your 6 - 9-month-old or a Herby Salmon with Broad Beans & Sweet Potato Puree for your 9 - 12-month-old. From Roasted Vegetable Lasagne and hearty Chicken Burgers to Lamb Tagine and Scallops with Spicy Black Bean Sauce, all with easy-to-follow variations, these recipes will bring home-cooked food back to your table, for all the family to enjoy. Whether you need a quick breakfast or lunch for everyone, or you want to enjoy an indulgent, romantic dinner with your partner after you've fed your little angels, bathed them and read them their favourite stories - this book shows you how to do it all.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Elliott, founder of the largest organic supermarket in the UK and author of Healthy Eating for Your Baby and Toddler, has developed a cookbook that offers over 85 recipes to tempt kids and adults, with mouthwatering pictures to entice the wee ones that can't yet read, and practical variations for infants up to one-year-old. Elliott notes that in addition to the obvious health benefits, her recipes will encourage children to be "adventurous" eaters, something many parental cooks will likely welcome. Recipes are divided into sections—the basics, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and "baked treats"—and feature sardine fish cakes, sweet potato brownies, lamb tagine, a stir-fry of marinated tofu, plum oatmeal bread, and many more. In addition to the delicious dishes, Elliot explains her foodie philosophy; offers a glossary of "Wonderfoods," such as avocados, kuzu, and kefir; and gives instructions on how to store and freeze foods (especially handy advice for parents with a big litter and a busy schedule). Elliott's background in organic food and motherhood (charming doodles by her kids pepper the volume) make this guide an invaluable resource for parents seeking alternatives to short-order cooking and boring baby food.
