I appreciate Rose's approach to focus on the foods that you can eat and her ability to boost flavour at the same time. Her food is not anemic. There is always lots of flavour. This is also not one of those "healthy" cookbooks that has regular recipes that just swap out high fat ingredients for low fat and says it is good for you. These recipes truly reflect Rose's out-of-the-box creative thinking and healthful problem solving. Her ideas appear to be endless, considering this is her 18th cookbook!

I also wanted to mention that many family cookbooks are alienating for me. They are so "Mom" focused and forget you can have a family without kids. Rose's book does not focus on the "mommy factor" but is passionate about taking care of your loved ones with good food. That warms my heart. Also, a large portion of the first part of the book is dedicated on educating the reader about food, the importance of eating together and planning ahead... You are getting much more than recipes with this book.

Overall, if you want easy and healthy recipes that may not be gourmet but very flavourful, this is a great cookbook! Every recipe may not have a photo but there are some beautiful food photos in the book. It is rare that I find a cookbook that I feel confident will come up with dinner ideas both me and my husband will like that do not require a ton of work or unusual ingredients. Rose Reisman's Family Favorites Cookbook gives me fast and easy dinner ideas on those nights I am just too tired to think. Thanks Rose!

My husband and I have enjoyed every recipe that we have tried in this book. There is a lot of prep work but that is to be expected when you use fresh ingredients. Rose puts new twists on old favorites and in the process makes them into a healthier version of the originals. Lots of great pictures too.
