Do you find you are serving the same old meals week in, week out? Do you catch yourself staring at the contents of your fridge hoping for inspiration? Do you long for some original ideas to help you cook quick, healthy and tasty meals for the whole family? If so, help is at the hand from bestselling author and leading authority on feeding children, Annabel Karmel.
Favorite Family Meals is packed with more than 150 delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes that will appeal to the whole family, including brain-boosting breakfasts; “healthy junk food” like burgers, pizzas, and chicken nuggets; wholesome muffins; fabulous desserts; fish dishes that will tempt even the most finicky eaters; and dishes that children will enjoy preparing themselves (like animal-shaped cheese bread). Every recipe has been taste-tested by a panel of children, because it’s not enough to prepare healthy foods for kids—they have to want to eat them, too. Filled with dozens of essential time-saving tips for shopping, stocking, freezing, and planning ahead, four weekly menu plans, lunch box suggestions, ideas for spectacular party foods and sensible snacks, and inspiring color photographs, busy parents will wonder how they ever managed without Favorite Family Meals.
Deliciously quirky, this latest offering from popular British cookbook author Karmel serves up something for everyone: vegetarians, dieters, carb-cravers, sweet-toothers and everyone in-between will find a delicious new recipe to try. With an eye toward healthy eating, Karmel includes informational sidebars alongside the recipes ("Vitamins A, C and E are known as antioxidants. They are thought to help protect against free radicals, destructive molecules that damage cells and DNA."), which range from basic pasta dishes and salads to more involved fare like Honey and Soy Salmon with Sesame or Nasi Goreng. In addition to the recipes, Karmel includes her personal notes on each dish, adding a dash of spice to accompany the bright how-to and finished dish photographs. "Yvonne is a very good friend of mine who lives in Cape Town. I used to teach her daughter to play the harp and whenever I gave concerts Yvonne would present me with a cookbook instead of a bouquet of flowers." Family chefs looking for healthy new ideas to mix up the dinnertime routine will find plenty of ideas here.
