The stories in this book help us to share our experience as busy moms, with lots more than cooking on our plates. I appreciated the suggestions for more than the usual kid-friendly macaroni and cheese or pizza that the kids prefer, and added new dishes to my repertoire. The format of the book is wonderful, with laminated large pages that make it easy to prop the recipes on the counter while cooking with baby in hand. Try the Tortilla Soup--it's an instant hit with both adults and tots,tasty and healthy. The accompanying stories with each recipe gave me insight into the lives of other busy moms(and dads). Cook a little, laugh a little with this wonderful book.
