    I’m a pretty bad mom. Really. I’m not kidding. How else to explain how I got to have a daughter who’s 24 years old but eats like a 4-year-old? A really picky 4-year-old. I joke with my friends that Laura only eats “blonde food”: macaroni and cheese, garlic bread, spaghetti with Parmesan cheese but absolutely no red sauce, gnocchi in olive oil, various cheeses, bananas, French fries, cheese pizza, most breads, chicken tenders, pasta in Alfredo sauce, cheese quesadilla, fried fish sandwiches, frie I’m a pretty bad mom. Really. I’m not kidding. How else to explain how I got to have a daughter who’s 24 years old but eats like a 4-year-old? A really picky 4-year-old. I joke with my friends that Laura only eats “blonde food”: macaroni and cheese, garlic bread, spaghetti with Parmesan cheese but absolutely no red sauce, gnocchi in olive oil, various cheeses, bananas, French fries, cheese pizza, most breads, chicken tenders, pasta in Alfredo sauce, cheese quesadilla, fried fish sandwiches, fried chicken, sliced turkey sandwiches (no nothing else on the bread but the turkey), corn on the cob. See a pattern there? Yes, she’ll eat tacos (hold the lettuce), watermelon, hotdogs, and — be amazed! — fried okra, but her repertoire is pretty much limited to the white, off-white and yellow. In contrast, author Katie Workman is a good mom. Of course, she worries about sodium and sugar and the rest, but she isn’t a zealot about it. Even better, she has managed by hook and by crook to persuade her two picky-eater sons to expand their horizons a bit and condensed her findings into 100 recipes that are likely to tempt other picky eaters to do likewise. The recipes here are real treasures: Not only do they help you tempt a picky eater to try something new, but most of the recipes contain a so-called “Fork in the Road” in which half of the food is set aside to remain plain and appealing to the picky while half gets jazzed up for the adults (or at least those adults who eat like grownups). What godsend! I wish I had had this book 20 years ago! I would feel a lot less guilt-ridden now. Here’s to hoping that it’s never too late. I persuaded my daughter to try these recipes, and she actually agreed eagerly! What better recommendation is there than that?

    I am trying to up my game in fixing meals and I really like this cookbook. They are down-to-earth simple recipes and the Hot Fudge Sauce, alone was worth the price of the book.

    The homemade granola recipe in this book is delicious! I've already made it twice. (I used dried apricots, apple juice sweetened cranberries, coconut and pecans.) Seemed like a nice, practical cookbook from what I could determine. I only had a two week checkout from the library, and I was out of town for most of it, so I will definitely check it out again to see if there are any other good recipes. It also passed the "must have great photos" test. The homemade granola recipe in this book is delicious! I've already made it twice.

    If you are not a mother (or mom, to use the American parlance) you might be forgiven for ignoring this book when browsing the mass of books in the cookery aisle at a bookstore. That could be a bit of a mistake... Billed as a book featuring a hundred recipes that every mother would need for weekday meals, it is fair to say that the recipes could equally be suitable for everyone else too.

That could be a bit of a mistake... Billed as a book featuring a hundred recipes that every mother would need for weekday meals, it is fair to say that the recipes could equally be suitable for everyone else too. Good, simple, tasty recipes that don't require a lot of planning. What more could you want? As per the book's branding, children and family are in focus, with information looking at family-friendly, stress-reducing matters such as fussy eaters and child-friendly food. It is not so-child-focussed to make a non-parent start to feel nauseous though! Fresh, diverse ingredients stand to the fore here, yet this is not one of those shouty, campaigning books that soon can get on your nerves. Granted, there is a lot of interesting information and background primers concerning the healthy ingredients and how they all 'fit' - but these are easy to skip if required and go straight to the recipes. Recipes are not just split into meals, but also into various situations such as comfort food, mixed company food and (with a groan from every frustrated parent) the bake sale. Navigation is key and you can easily dip in and out of the book by chapter, by side navigation or through the excellent index. Some books were just designed to flick through for additional inspiration. This is one of them. The pictures are practical and powerful without being showy and arty-farty. Straight-to-the-point, practical information is easily accessible, perhaps with a nod to the busy lifestyles parents (and increasingly non-parents invariably have nowadays). Everything about this book screams accessibility. You need not be a kitchen goddess or super mum. Just grab a few minutes of relative peace (or take it to the lavatory and bolt the door whilst you consult matters). Due to the information and great recipes that 'bulge' out of this book it feels like there is a lot more than a hundred recipes. Hopefully it will give you confidence to try cooking, rather than warming up pre-made food, and to encourage your children, your partner or your friends to try something new as well. Not all "food by moms" needs to be a variant on toddler mush or child-friendly something and fries. Here your children (or any dinner guests) can eat like kings and queens and you need not feel like you've been slaving in the kitchen for all of the day. You might even start to enjoy this cooking lark! One word of advice. Some similar books are rather basic with their approach and you might start to think that this book is too fussy and impractical. Keep the faith... get this book... get cooking! The MOM 100 Cookbook, written by Katie Workman and published by Workman Publishing. ISBN 9780761166030, 352 pages. Typical price: GBP7.

    These recipes are sound, but the book wasn't really for me. Basically, it's 100 family-friendly recipes, with variations for picky eaters, etc. The recipes are indeed all family-friendly, but if you're an experienced cook, you probably already know how to make mac-and-cheese, chocolate cake and bruschetta. Some of the things didn't really require a recipe (fruit kabobs?). And the downside of some of these is that they take long - she does highlight those recipes by telling us to make them on a Su These recipes are sound, but the book wasn't really for me.

Some of the things didn't really require a recipe (fruit kabobs?). And the downside of some of these is that they take long - she does highlight those recipes by telling us to make them on a Sunday or prepare in advance, but I don't know if this approach is always practical. So, it's a good cookbook, and I am going to keep some of the recipes (mainly the fish ones) in rotation, but if you're an experienced cook or like to use your crockpot and other time-saving devices, I don't know if this is for you. On the other hand, even if you don't utilize the book a lot, it may be worth checking out of the library just to get more ideas for dinner, even if you use your own recipes.

    I use this cookbook ALL the time. it is nothing fancy; just a lot of basics that work every time, and when I ma low on groceries there is always SOMETHING in this book that I can make, and everything tastes great. it only gets four stars because the author has at least 15-20 "waste of space" recipes, like how to make grilled cheese, how to make a hole in one, or how to make scrambled eggs (DUH!). But her tuna salad sandwich recipe more than makes up for it--my kids wouldn't touch tuna with a ten I use this cookbook ALL the time. it is nothing fancy; just a lot of basics that work every time, and when I ma low on groceries there is always SOMETHING in this book that I can make, and everything tastes great. it only gets four stars because the author has at least 15-20 "waste of space" recipes, like how to make grilled cheese, how to make a hole in one, or how to make scrambled eggs (DUH!).

    As you can tell from our name our cookbook club comes from our local senior center. All of us, except our activity director, is an experienced senior cook. We have been cooking for 50+ years. When we first picked up this book we were not impressed. I mean chocolate covered pretzels how dumb can you be. Then as we poured over the cookbook and thought of our younger selves we NEEDED this book when we were younger. How to feed picky eaters, how to save time, how to cut corners this book has it all.

Our lack of full 5 stars is that the book at times was a bit to wordy and was not 100% correct in measurements of ingredients. This afternoon we enjoyed the maple turkey and bacon, chicken Caesar, and Jack and Charlie's Sub Sandwich lunchbox wraps, the honey hoisin tofu, cheesy chicken enchiladas, cheesy rice with broccoli, the best streusel apple pie ever (that's the name of the recipe not our opinion :-), chocolate peanut butter squares and Aaron E's favorite apple coffee cake.

    Great cookbook. I picked this up from the library on a whim and found a lot of recipes that I liked. In fact I plan the next few weeks of meals around recipes in the book. Some of our favorites were the shrimp scampi, meatloaf, chicken piccata, and beef stew. I found the recipes to be simple no ingredients were too far out there that I couldn't find them at the grocery store and my kids ate almost everything. She even has a nice recipe for pizza English muffins that were a bit. I love the chance Great cookbook. I picked this up from the library on a whim and found a lot of recipes that I liked.

I have to say I think is this is the first book that I actually want to go by after I've had a chance to test it out. It's definitely going on my Christmas list. The only reason I gave it four stars versus five stars it's because my kids truly are picky eaters and it didn't like the recipes quite as much as my husband and I did.

    I am looking for new dishes to introduce to my family and a lot of the recipes in this we have already tried or I don’t make because I know my kids won’t eat it. It is a fun cookbook to look through, and I got a few new ideas, but the search continues for inspiration to feed my picky family!

    For many moms coming up with ideas for meals, then cooking them, can be one of the most frustrating things about family life. Even moms who love to cook may not feel there’s enough time to put healthy, tasty food on the table day after day and night after night. The Mom 100 Cookbook: 100 Recipes Every Mom Needs in Her Back Pocket comes to the rescue. Author Katie Workman, founding editor in chief of Cookstr.com, has written a cookbook that can help moms consistently serve food their families wil For many moms coming up with ideas for meals, then cooking them, can be one of the most frustrating things about family life. Even moms who love to cook may not feel there’s enough time to put healthy, tasty food on the table day after day and night after night. The Mom 100 Cookbook: 100 Recipes Every Mom Needs in Her Back Pocket comes to the rescue. Author Katie Workman, founding editor in chief of Cookstr.com, has written a cookbook that can help moms consistently serve food their families will love, and maybe even get their kids to help make it. The Mom 100 Cookbook is divided into sections that make it easy to find what you’re looking for. And the recipes are presented as solutions to dilemmas. For instance, the chapter titled “Potluck” describes the dilemma as “How’d I get stuck with making the main dish.” I know exactly what that feels like. Usually, when potluck plans are made I feel confident about what I can do in the future, but when the time comes to actually make something, I fall short of ideas. The solutions presented here, recipes with chicken, beef, pork, turkey and rice, all seem easy to make, beautiful to present and satisfying to eat: just what you hope for when you make something for a potluck. There are 20 chapters in all, covering breakfast, lunch, snacks, soups, salads, main course meats, vegetables, dessert and more. There’s also a great section at the end called “What You May be Looking For” that categorizes the recipes. So if you’re looking for something that can be made in 30 minutes or less, make-ahead dishes, or main courses to impress someone (as well as many other categories) you can quickly find which recipes in the book fit. I particularly like Workman’s side notes, such as “what the kids can do” and “vegetarian note.” Also, she starts each chapter with notes about what she’s learned along the way that are good overall tips for the types of food she’s cooking. I tried several recipes in the book and found they were all tasty, easy to prepare and looked nice when I served them. While The Mom 100 Cookbook won’t truly fit into your back pocket, the format it’s in is easy to lay out on a counter without worrying about the pages closing and losing your spot just when you’re following a crucial step—quite a plus as far as I’m concerned. This is one cookbook that I plan to shelve for easy access and frequent use. The publisher provided me with a copy of this book to review.

Every mom wants to feed her children healthy, home-cooked meals, and Workman's book can help with that often-overwhelming process. She starts with basic information, like 5 Basic Tips for Getting Your Kids to Eat More Things, and 17 Amazing Ingredients, olive oil and canned tomatoes among them. Each chapter starts with a dilemma- Enough with the frozen chicken nuggets is one. Then Workman gives a number of solutions to the dilemma in the form of easy to make recipes. Some of the solutions include Roast Chicken Several Ways, Lemon Chicken, Barbequed Chicken, Homemade Chicken Tenders, and Taco Night. The recipes are easy to follow, and on the right margins she includes Cooking Tips (don't be afraid of the broiler), Make Ahead (broil the chicken and make the sauce a day ahead) and What the Kids Can Do (let the kids juice the lemons, combine the ingredients for the sauce, shake it up, and pour over the chicken), all for Lemon Chicken. Another interesting aspect of the book is what she calls A Fork in the Road Recipe. At the end of those recipes is a little box that gives you an alternative way to cook the dish. In the Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas recipe, if your kids don't like things spicy, you can cut back on the chili powder and garlic in the enchilada sauce. You can also use different baking dishes to make the enchiladas; one with enchiladas with the spicier sauce and one with the less spicy sauce. There are so many recipes in this book that I would try, even though my kids are all grown and will eat pretty much anything. Shrimp Risotto, Fork-in-the-Road Chicken Kebabs, and Vegetable Frittata among them. There are lots of photos, and Workman walks you through every recipe step-by-step. It's a terrific resource for those who are intimidated by cooking or think it's too difficult. (You can make nutritious meals for your family, even if you have picky eaters.) It also has appeal to the more experienced cook who is looking for easy, classic recipes. And at $16.95, it is a real bargain.

    Despite having the word "Mom" in the title, this is a really great cookbook. I say that because I'm essentially opposed to the idea of "mom cooking" or "kid food" - its just COOOKING and FOOD. I'm equally (maybe even more so) opposed to those gimmicky Mom cookbooks that advocate cooking and blending up hidden fruits and veggies in "kid food".

Nothing too complex and several very simple (but really good).

    Workman has a sense of humor and has definitely served time as a mom. The dilemmas are real-life issues and the solutions are straight forward (also easy to execute). The "fork in the road", side notes and family commentary all made me laugh out loud. Reads more like a comedy novel then a cookbook which was a plus to me. However, some of the recipes won't work for my picky eaters...I'm trying a few anyway (somebody will eat it right?).

    I loved this book! So many good recipes, with so many good suggestions! This book is very reader friendly, not too fancy, like some cookbooks seem to be, with ingredients you can't easily find. The author understands being a time-constrained mom with hungry,picky kids. I borrowed this one from the library, but I plan on buying my own book soon. I loved this book!

    A good cookbook for busy parents who want to share a variety of nutritious but kid-friendly foods that are straightforward to cook. The one-pot brownies are fantastic (I still want to try them with dark cocoa powder, too!) The lentil and tomato soup is the next on my list to try. Usually I prefer to borrow cookbooks from the library, but I am considering buying this one.

    So many of the recipes in this book look delicious and I can't wait to work my way through them, including shrimp risotto, mexican tortilla casserole, and the brisket recipe. The style of the book is quite humorous and breezy and I like that she imparts tips and tricks without being preachy or annoying and encourages the reader to try something different with a recipe.

    I like the attitude expressed in these recipes: there is always a variation of every recipe to suit personal preference or ingredients on hand. It teaches flexibility and creativity when cooking. Not so fond of the format, which wraps recipes around several pages. I especially dislike the referrals to other pages in the book, to retrieve small bits of knowledge necessary to complete a dish.

    Our favorite recipe is "I am the best mom in the world pancakes." These pancakes are amazing. Every recipe I have tried has been a success and I love that there is a "fork in the road" so that kids options can be divided without making completely separate kids meals. I also like that there are ideas for what your kids can help with along the way. Our favorite recipe is "I am the best mom in the world pancakes." These pancakes are amazing.

    Miso cod fingers.. uh, yeah, my kids will eat that! There are a few good tips in this book, but definitely not what I was hoping for.
