Overview

The Busy Mom's Cookbook: 100 Recipes for Quick, Delicious, Home-Cooked Meals by Antonia Lofaso

Bravo’s Top Chef All-Star and Los Angeles executive chef serves up more than 100 quick and easy family recipes that she developed as a hardworking single mom.

America’s 26 million working moms face the challenge of getting a delicious home-cooked dinner on the table. For Antonia Lofaso, the issue hits especially close to home, because she holds down multiple jobs—in the food world, no less. She continues to participate in activities and appearances for Bravo and Top Chef while serving as executive chef of Black Market Liquor Bar. Through it all, she has developed a fantastic repertoire of meals that keep families bonded—quick, nourishing, hearty fare that soothes the soul.

Showcasing Lofaso’s top picks, The Busy Mom’s Cookbook includes breakfast favorites ranging from pancakes to the world’s best blueberry muffins, and easy but satisfying dinners such as Beef Stroganoff with Creamy Pappardelle and Fish Tacos with Corn Tomatillo Salad. She even tackles the brown-bag lunch with choices that the other kids will envy, including BBQ Chicken Pita Pocket and Turkey-and-Swiss Panini.

The Busy Mom’s Cookbook is the first book to bring star-quality culinary expertise to the specific needs of busy parents. Laced with memories and lessons from Lofaso’s own experience as a working mom, this cookbook speaks from the heart with inspiring, real-world wisdom and plenty of lighthearted humor to encourage every reader to savor the rewards of making mealtime memorable.

I am a busy Mom of a toddler and an infant who works full time. I also strive to cook most meals at home and feed my children healthy foods as much as possible. This cookbook is terrific! The recipes are simple and use easy to find ingredients. I don't have to customize much since the recipes keep children in mind and aren't too spicy or exotic. I loved watching Antonia on Top Chef & her cookbook stays true to her dual passions-cooking and being a great mother. Highly recommended!

The eBook doesn't have any pictures. Throughout the book pictures are mentioned so it's kind of disappointing there are none. Other than that, the recipes sound good.
