Meals for the Family: The Supper Club by Susie CoverPeople
(Image credit: Apartment Therapy) We are big believers in eating together as a family and feeding our children wholesome, not-dumbed-down food. But good intentions can easily get sidetracked when there’s a toddler underfoot or a picky six-year-old who will. not. touch. the. kale. Susie Cover has vast experience cooking meals that everyone (everyone!) will like, and this book offers more than 100 recipes that aim to please.

Parents Need to Eat Too by Debbie KoenigPeople
Are you a new parent, or know someone who is about to be? With the arrival of a new baby, food and cooking become a rather different set of challenges — snatched in between sleepless nights and the blissful absorption into every aspect of this new being’s life. But once the friendly meals and Taco Boxes stop coming, you do need to feed yourself in the middle of this new family landscape, and that’s where Debbie Koenig’s smart new book can help.

Dinner: A Love Story by Jenny RosenstrachPeople
Ordinarily, if another parent tells me they put a homecooked meal on the family table every night of the week I’m rolling my eyes in my head thinking they’re either lying or bragging. (Frankly, bragging is worse.) But when Jenny Rosenstrach, whose blog I’ve been reading religiously for the past two years, says it and documents how she does it in a cookbook, I’m all ears.

Best Lunch Box Ever by Katie Sullivan MorfordPeople
Katie Morford is a food writer, a registered dietician and a mother of three children. These qualifications show in her book. I’ve read lunch box books before that made me balk. The recipes were complicated, or I found myself thinking, “Sure, my kids will eat this in theory, but at the lunch table under the watchful eyes of their peers? Not so much.” Katie gets it. Her ideas are simple, healthy and varied enough to appeal to any child. Think you know it all?

Special Project: The Kid Gets in on The Kitchn CureKitchen
Day 7 Task: Special project I didn’t mean for it to happen. I was feeling guilty, because my special project wasn’t all that special, or difficult. I needed to deal with the cookbook situation. I have a thing for random cookbooks and that thing is getting ugly. And the spaces behind the cookbooks were getting really ugly, so it had to be done. But then something amazing happened: My youngest son got totally into the Cure, and I don’t mean the band.

Weelicious Lunches by Catherine McCordPeople
More than anything else, I think parents need ideas for what to put in their kids’ lunches. Heck, it’s hard enough coming up with interesting things to eat ourselves — doing this for small humans with their very own and very loud opinions is an even greater challenge. Help is here! It comes in the form of Catherine McCord’s latest book of kid-approved foods, Weelicious Lunches. Lunchtime? Game on.

Where Did You Get That Recipe? And How Do You Keep Yours Organized?Kitchen
If you are like me, you have recipes written on scraps of paper, loosely filed somewhere near your actual cookbooks. Or maybe you’re more organized. Any way you store them, those recipes are often family favorites. Mine came from a variety of sources and I need to organize them. My split pea soup recipe and a delicious slow cooker recipe for peanut butter chicken came from an online parenting community I used to frequent when my now 15-year-old son was a baby.

Picture Cook: See. Make. Eat. This Book Is Helping Me Cook More With My DaughterSkills
Cookbook: Picture: Cook. See. Make. Eat. by Katie Shelly Price: $14 Overall Impression: An unusual, quirky book, with adorable illustrations, and solid, well tested recipes. Though this book is marketed as a general cookbook, I found that it was perfect for cooking with children, even very young ones. I love and adore my daughter. However, trying to cook with her, especially when I am in a hurry, can be a challenge.

5 Books That Fueled My Childhood Love for FoodPeople
I spent the better part of my formative years with my nose in a book, and in my case, many of them had some relation to food or cooking. My mother was the book buyer for my parents’ toy store (yes, I grew up in a toy store!), and she had a knack for picking out the best titles to spark my imagination. Here are five of my childhood favorites, all of which may inspire little ones to get curious in the kitchen!

100 Days of Real Food Makes Healthy Eating as a Family Feel Approachable and DoableSkills
Cookbook: 100 Days of Real Food by Lisa Leake Overall Impression: A well-researched book with a lot of information on eating healthy food with a focus on kid-friendly recipes. All of us always want to eat better food and live healthier lifestyles. However, when life gets maniacally busy — with school, work, and life — it is almost too easy to turn to convenience food, even though we all know that healthy, home-cooked food is best.

Recipe: Romaine and Celery Salad with Buttermilk Ranch DressingRecipes
There’s a reason why a packet of ranch seasoning is the secret to so many crazy-delicious recipes, from chicken marinade and yogurt dip to potato salad and popcorn seasoning (yeah, you should try it).

Homestyle Stew Recipe: Doro We’t and Spiced ButterRecipes
Marcus Samuelsson’s book New American Table is an explosion of love and praise for all the many immigrant cuisines that melt together to make American food so glorious. And yet the recipe in his book that we were most drawn to was Doro We’t, the classic Ethiopian stew. But maybe this just reinforces his premise: we all bring our own histories to the table, and this is part of his, and his wife’s.If you haven’t had this dish before, then you’re in for a treat.

Recipe: Creamy Spring Vegetable Gratin with Grana PadanoRecipes
Here’s one last dinner recipe to close out the week. This is from my book, Not Your Mother’s Casseroles, and it really expresses the way I like to make vegetable casseroles. I find that many casseroles and gratins smother the vegetables with dairy, grains, and other peripheral ingredients. But I want to taste the vegetables — especially when, like here, they are fresh and springlike — leeks, fennel, potatoes, onion, garlic.
