Family Cookbook by Caroline Bretherton ($35, DK) is a compilation of more than 700 family-friendly recipes that cover just about everything. Chapters include: Babies and Toddlers, Family Meals, Easy Entertaining, Food to Go, Baking and Cooking with Kids.
There’s advice on many things, such as how to organize and store food in the refrigerator (Page 234), how to stretch a meal for an unexpected guest or two (p. 292) and being smart with leftovers (p. 322). Plus, each recipe comes with a color photo of the finished dish.
Bretherton said, “As well as offering fresh ideas for family meals alongside some tried-and-trusted favorites, this book aims to make this process more streamlined so that your time in the kitchen is spent wisely, producing, where possible, one meal for all and making good use of leftovers, as well as batching and freezing and preparing ahead.”
