The Mom 100 Cookbook by Katie Workman: Katie Workman’s fun and irreverent voice is a delight as she takes us through 100 familiar and foolproof meals. She integrates ideas on “What the Kids Can Do”, so you can get little hands involved in meal prep. She also offers “Fork in the Road” sidebars, offering suggestions on how to keep dishes simple for kids, and how to build on those dishes for more grown-up tastes. Her “Make Ahead” and “Cooking Tips” create a resource that you will turn to again and again. Recipes run the gamut from snacks to soups to meals. I love her recipe for House Pumpkin Seeds (p. 40) – a great snack that is customizable to personal tastes. This book deserves a place in every busy mom’s kitchen.
