Workman (editor in chief, presents her top 100 recipes moms can turn to for feeding the family—she claims that in most houses, "the mom is the cook." With a lighthearted tone, this cookbook is a welcome resource for the possibly harried parent. "Fork in the Road" notes include ideas for "picky palates," and there are also tips like using no-boil lasagna noodles, making things ahead, and involving kids in the process. The nice stockpile of recipes features standards like macaroni and cheese, meatloaf, and lasagna, along with such dishes as Chickpea Poppers and Broiled Miso Cod Fingers. Workman also advocates for a well-stocked pantry to help out in a pinch.
VERDICT This solid source of recipe ideas is good for anyone cooking for a family. For a more health-conscious perspective, try Beth Bader and Ali Benjamin's The Cleaner Plate Club: More Than 100 Recipes for Real Food Your Kids Will Love. [Twenty-city tour.]
