Format: Paperback
I bought this book based on the reviews- they all seemed positive and encouraging. If you are really clueless in the kitchen, this book will definitely help you. If you know your way around the kitchen and are looking for some fresh, new ideas for healthy meals for your family, avoid this book. The authors' ideas for making a meal healthy most often include adding a carrot or two. Almost every recipe involving ground meat touts adding grated carrot to add extra vitamins and nutrition. Anyone can add carrots to a recipe. I could add shredded carrot to my creme brulee and call it more nutritious, but I doubt it would sell many cookbooks.
I was hoping that this book would help me with creative new ways to present food to my small children in order to get them to try new things, while helping me maintain my modest grocery budget. Most of the suggestions in this book involve a trip to a specialty grocery store, or the organic aisle at my supermarket- either way increasing the money spent on groceries. This book was a huge disappointment to me- I didn't need a book to tell me to avoid fast food. It contains too much common sense, and isn't worth what I paid for it.

I love this book. It's fabulous. The recipes I've tried all turned out great, and I'm looking forward to trying many more! They're interesting, but not exotic ... and NEVER boring or bland. I'd easily serve many of these dishes to company. They make great weeknight meals, and it's perfect for us that they are based on "really great food" but don't require a lot of specialty ingredients. This cookbook is already a favorite and will stay on our shelf for a VERY long time. Kudos to the authors for creating a masterpiece!

These recipes are quick, easy, good, and best of all, a little more adventurous than your normal "family" cookbooks filled with chicken nuggets and pasta. I am not one to plan a week's meals ahead, and I love that I can open this book and find something great to make out of what I have on hand. I've made at least 15 of the recipes and every one was great. The prep time estimates seem to be pretty accurate. Our family in general likes things a little more spicy than most, so some recipes were a little bland but I just add a little more seasoning if that happens. I think they would probably be fine for most people, especially kids.
I think the authors are right on the mark with their advice on kids trying new foods, no "yuck!"s etc. Their philosophy is similar to our own house rules, and as a result my boys (3 and 7) are great eaters. I had the pleasure of meeting the authors at a bookstore signing, and I was very impressed with their knowledge, sensibility, and friendliness!

Easy, healthy and yummy. That pretty much sums up the recipes in this great
book. All kinds of common healthy ingredients are used, stuff I bought in
the past but didn't know how to cook/use, like sweet potatoes and black
beans. Southwest chicken and rice, sweet potato and kale soup, all kinds of
different and interesting recipes that aren't too time-comsuming or
intimidating. Highly recommended!

This cookbook is the best! With 3 teenagers, our schedules are busier than ever. The recipes are quick and easy to prepare, and my kids love them!! The Fiery Steak Fajitas, and Hunan Beef and Broccoli are 2 family favorites. The books tips on stocking a healthy pantry is especially helpful (I only buy omega 3 eggs, now)! This book is so reasonably priced that I've bought many copies...now when friends have us over for dinner I give a copy of the book instead of a bottle of wine. They love it!!!

I love this book! I actually look forward to trying new recipes each week. They are easy to make and use ingredients I usually have on hand. Loved Mexican lasagna and sweet and sour shrimp. I also like having new vegetarian recipes to try for my non-meat-eating friends (pumpkin ravioli, zuke pie). You can only make so many veggie lasagnas!
Healthy, quick, easy-the perfect cookbook for busy people!

What an incredible book! Weiss and Bissex have written a user-friendly guide that every family will love. The recipes are delicious, and even more amazing, easy to prepare. Every recipe I have prepared has been devoured eagerly by each member of my family. What a lifesaver in the kitchen. I used to spend hours making different meals for everyone. Those days are over! These healthy, nutritious meals have gotten our family on the track to eating right. I bring the book with me to the supermarket each week to aid in making the best choices. This book has been the absolute best guide to improving how our family eats!

I bought this book at a Mothers & More cooking demonstration. I loved that the authors were honest about how much time and energy Moms have in the kitchen and were realistic about what could be done with a 2 year old at your feet! My husband has loved every recipe I've tried - tonight was the fish sticks and the maple carrots. I still have many more recipes to try and I look forward to that!
My dad is the cook in our family and he loved the introduction because it doesn't try to have families change everything they do at once (which is unrealistic)..I recommend this book to my friends and other moms!
