With The Yummy Mummy Kitchen: 100 Effortless and Irresistible Recipes to Nourish Your Family with Style and Grace, Marina Delio provides a collection of easy-to-make, wholesome, and mostly meatless recipes, as well as inspirational advice from her grandmother, the original “Yummy Mummy.”
Delio, founder of the popular blog Yummy Mummy Kitchen, demonstrates that it is possible for women to put deceptively simple and delicious dishes on the table for their families, while holding on to their own style and grace, even in the most unglamorous of times.
This gorgeous cookbook, with gorgeous color photographs, recipes for every meal of the day, and lifestyle tips, proves that meal preparation can be easy and stress-free.
The first sentence of this book by Yummy Mummy Kitchen blogger Delio I m not the Yummy Mummy is reassuring. This isn t about an author extolling her own supermom-as-superchef credentials. The title of her blog and book, she explains, are inspired by her British grandmother, whom she calls the original Yummy Mummy. And the book is inspiring, not intimidating. It s filled with terrific and accessible (mostly meatless, with a few exceptions) recipes, along with real-mom advice from the author (who admits that pouring a small glass of wine makes dinner prep more fun, and that her standing Friday afternoon play date/cocktail hour with girlfriends helps her to be a better mom) and her grandmother. The recipes range from snacks (such as kid-friendly Cheesy Broccoli Brown Rice Poppers and Grape and Rosemary Flatbread) to entrees (such as Grilled Eggplant Stuffed with Spinach and Cheese, Rice Noodles Primavera with Tofu and Peanut Sauce, Halibut with Blood Orange Salsa, and Crispy Baked Fish and Chips ). There are also breakfast foods, like Apple Oat Muffins, and simple desserts, like Salted Brown Butter Cookies and Apricot Almond Crumble Bars. It s true that the dreamy color photos make the book feel aspirational, but the easy recipes and helpful features (like seasonal weekly menus, complete with shopping lists) make this volume a useful resource for busy families.

Original, fresh, quick - love it!
Only one caveat: the photos in this e-book are distorted. Cookbooks are best in hard copy anyway.
Great book, but the pictures...
Love, love, love this book, but some of the beautiful pictures are distorted. I hope there will be a fix for this soon.
