Splendid family cookbook

I am impressed with the quality of the recipes in this book and the meals that come from them. I have cooked three things so far, and my husband and I have enjoyed them: Ricotta, Tomato, and Basil Pasta, Grilled Prosciutto and Provolone Sandwiches, and Raisin/Apricot Breakfast. My 6-year old ate the latter with no problems. What I also like about the cookbook and Ponzek's philosophy is get the kids in the kitchen to help; even if they don't eat what they help make (like my son), they are still learning important skills, sharing time with you, and eventually may be persuaded to try one of these high-quality dishes. The meals aren't fussy, but they are easy to do and taste wonderful. I checked this out from the library first, and I have now bought it a week later. Worth every penny. She breaks her recipes up into thoughtful categories that include Breakfast, Breakfast in Bed, Afternoon Snacks, Lazy Winter Weekends, Bake Sales, Dinnertime, etc. Other wonderful-looking recipes include Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa; Easy Apple Pancake (yep, looks easy); Fresh Berry Bismarck (a Dutch Baby); Butternut Squash Gnocchi. Again, your kid may not eat everything, but the experience of making quality meals with you and having exposure to different flavors in simply-made food is worth it.

Awesome as my kids would say!!

This cookbook has great recipes. So far everything I have tried and I have loved and my kids have liked most. The food is not "Kiddie food" like chicken fingers, ordinary mac and cheese etc, but more interesting and my kids have at least tried everything. Also has great illustrations which are important to our family when picking meals!

Recipes for living and for food

In our family, we always believed in the sanctity of "the family hour" - that time of day when food became the bridge by which we passed on our culture and our beliefs. This book presents wonderful, helpful ways of creating that bond again with our grandchildren. Brava, Debra!

A book for the family, delicious ideas and culinary tips you'll refer to again and again.

Really one of the few books that appeal to an entire family. Easy to follow recipes with fantastic color photos. Debra Ponzek melds an impossible marriage; healthy foods and food that kids will actually want to eat. (The grilled vegetable lasagna and croque monsieurs are two of our family favorites, not to mention the desserts). From youngest to oldest, creating time in the kitchen that is fun and delicious for all. High recommendations for this cookbook...........

A MUST HAVE Cookbook !!! - so many amazing recipes !!!

My wife and I recently picked up this cookbook and were amazed at the number of excellent recipes. Most cookbooks I have bought recently have a fraction of the number of recipes that are in "The Family Kitchen" by Debra Ponzek. We especially love the easy directions and stories behind each recipe. Each recipe lists tasks the children can perform which is a great way to keep my kids (wife, grandparents) busy. Buy this book for the excellent selection of recipes and especially the traditional chocolate cake recipe; IT IS WORTH THE INVESTMENT !!!
