    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

    Interesting enough collection of recipes. Some recipes however, have some weird ingredients, like coconut sugar, and bonito flakes. Also, one recipe really confuses me as it is called "Cheesy Butternut Squash and Mushroom Casserole" yet there are not mushrooms in it?

    Feeding a Family: A Year of Simple and Healthy Dinners by Sarah Waldman is one of the more commonsense "healthy" inspired cookbooks I've read. The author does use ingredients some would associate with the newer health food ideas i.e. coconut sugar, and there are a lot of vegetable/vegetarian-type recipes found throughout her cookbook. You also find recipes using animal-based proteins too.

    I like how the author included money-saving tips and how to stock a pantry. I also liked her commonsense appr

    Feeding a Family: A Year of Simple and Healthy Dinners by Sarah Waldman is one of the more commonsense "healthy" inspired cookbooks I've read. The author does use ingredients some would associate with the newer health food ideas i.e. coconut sugar, and there are a lot of vegetable/vegetarian-type recipes found throughout her cookbook. You also find recipes using animal-based proteins too.

    I like how the author included money-saving tips and how to stock a pantry. I also liked her commonsense approach to picky eaters. An approach my parents took with me when I was a child and taught me to appreciate a wide variety of foods.

    I did find one recipe that was missing a key ingredient as the Cheesy Butternut Squash and Mushroom Casserole was missing the mushrooms. As the book I was reviewing is a galley proof, I am sure this is an editorial error that will hopefully be corrected when the final book is published.

    Some of the recipes you'll find in her cookbook include:

    German Apple Pancake with Sharp Cheddar

    Baked Apple Cider Doughnuts

    Chicken Thighs with Barley, Chard, and Mushrooms

    Cinnamon and Sugar Crispy Chickpeas

    Skillet Spinach Pie

    Recommend.

    A beautiful cookbook that you'll actually use! The recipes are approachable and exciting. Love that the recipes are for a complete meal so you don't have to think about finding 3 recipes to create a full dinner. Loved the suggestions for tailoring elements to kids and babies so parents aren't cooking separate meals for little ones. So many things I want to make! Would be a great gift for young families .

    Disclaimer: I am by no means a good cook. I am actually a novice when it comes to cooking.

    This cookbook has some really interesting and yummy looking recipes. A lot of which is over my head in terms of skill level required. (That or I was just intimidated by the instructions.) Still, I was able to find a couple recipes that I look forward to trying.

    I have been a fan of Sarah's food and blog for years and I am so happy to now own this beautiful hard copy collection of her recipes. Everything is seasonal, simple, and always delicious- totally doable even for the busiest mothers of young children. What I love best about her recipes is the fact that they are healthful but not restrictive. They make me feel GOOD about feeding myself and my family instead of sad that I'm missing out.

    This lovely book, by way of Sarah's food and Elizabeth Cecil's

    This lovely book, by way of Sarah's food and Elizabeth Cecil's beautiful photographs, takes you through a year of eating on the dreamland of Martha's Vineyard. It is just as wonderful to page through it as it is to taste the goodies within it!

    Some favorite highlights include: Leek, Potato, and Feta Galette; Slow Cooker Indian Butter Chicken; German Apple Pancake with Sharp Cheddar; Kale and Sweet Potato Tacos with Black Beans; Cod Cakes with Poached Eggs; and the countless fresh and different snacks, smoothies, and desserts! Yum!

I'm so happy to have a cookbook in my kitchen that i can grab, find a recipe and most likely have most of what I need already. I've already made the butter chicken 2 times! Its sooooo good and my 5 and 7 year olds love it too! WIN! I highly recommend this book to everyone. Simple cooking at its yummiest.

    I don't know why I didn't like this book but something about it just didn't ring true for me.
