Overview

Introducing the lifesaving cookbook for every mother with kids at home—the book that solves the 20 most common cooking 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.

Publishers Weekly
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. (Apr.)
