Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners by Sara Moulton
(Simon & Schuster, 2010, 400 pages)
Oh, how I’ve missed reading about food! I discovered Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners when I realized I was in something of a food rut at home and wanted to find a cookbook that could help guide me out of it. I just don’t have the time to play around in the kitchen like I used to now that I’m constantly keeping an eye on a toddler who has to explore everything.
This cookbook is one I definitely plan on buying and adding to my collection. I really liked Moulton’s writing style. Each recipe had a short introduction and then the recipes themselves were clearly written and easy to follow. There are also tips and tricks interspersed throughout. The nature of the cookbook is to make it easy to put together a good, quality family meal on a weeknight when time is always at a premium. There were a lot of recipes I wanted to try, some with ingredients I might not otherwise gravitate towards.
Lest you doubt, I did read this whole cookbook 🙂 If you’re looking for ways to change up your family’s food repertoire this would be a good place to start – even if you’re something of a cooking novice.
