I hope you are prepared for me to rant and rave about how simply amazing this cookbook is!! At first glance it really doesn’t look too terribly exciting – but these are not your average “weeknight meals”. I absolutely loved how simple yet sophisticated these recipes are. Each meal I made was wholesome and delicious and left my family happy. This book is filled with kid friendly meal ideas that you parents will also enjoy. I found these recipes to be straightforward and honest – when they say “fast” they mean it!! I also really appreciated that they weren’t too labour intensive and the ingredients were not hard to locate. This book should be in every mom’s repertoire. I find my self going back to this book night after night when I don’t know what to cook.
