I was over the moon when Cooking Light asked me to write a cookbook for busy parents. I’m pretty darn proud of the finished product, Dinnertime Survival Guide, which officially launched this week. I set out to write a cookbook I’d want to read myself–one that was easy to scan, that had a line-up of recipes that sounded yummy to all of us, and that took into account the stress, time-crunch, and chaos that can be family dinner. A photo with every recipe was a must too.
I spent many months cooking and trying out the recipes for my family. My boys rated each one with a thumbs-up, thumbs-down, or thumbs-in-the-middle.
We all had our favorites. I loved Salmon Cakes with Lemony Garlic Sauce. My husband still swoons over the Maple-Mustard Glazed Chicken every time I make it. Henry was a huge fan of the Easy Garlic Fries, crispy baked fries tossed in a garlicky butter sauce. And Sam, the toughest customer at my table, now happily eats fish thanks to the T-Riffic Tilapia Tacos. For more details on what’s inside, read “A Peek Inside My New Cookbook!”
As soon as the books were delivered to my doorstep, one immediately became my kitchen copy. It’s already got the requisite drips and spills on its pages, like any well-loved cookbook should have. Now I want to share it with YOU.
