The Mom 100 Cookbook: 100 Recipes Every Mom Needs in Her Back Pocket


Lets’ face it; parenthood changes things, not least of all cooking responsibilities. Once you’re charged with the care and feeding of little ones three times a day, plus snacks, and are at the mercy of their whims and (always changing) taste preferences. Even experienced cooks face new challenges on a daily basis. Author Katie Workman has experienced this herself, and wrote a cookbook with moms in mind. The Mom 100 Cookbook: 100 Recipes Every Mom Needs in Her Back Pocket solves the 20 most common cooking dilemmas, from solutions for breakfast on harried mornings to fast and nutritious school lunches, with tips for picky eaters – a challenge for most parents.

Katie Workman, founding editor of and mother of two offers recipes, tips, techniques, attitude, and wisdom for staying happy in the kitchen while proudly keeping it homemade. Her book addresses 20 dilemmas every mom faces, with 5 solutions for each: including recipes and advice for the vegetable-averse, the salad-rejector, for the fish-o-phobe, or the overnight vegetarian convert. “Fork-in-the-Road” variations make it easy to adjust a recipe to appeal to different eaters (i.e., the kids who want bland and the adults who don’t), and “What the Kids Can Do” sidebars suggest ways for kids to help make each dish. It’s brilliant – a must-have for any mom.
