The book is cleverly constructed and brimming with cooking tips, ways to get kids involved in meal prep and “fork in the road” recipes that offer alternative ways to ramp up the flavor of recipes for adults. Each of the 100 crowd-pleasing recipes yields family-sized batches and serving suggestions for embellishing leftovers for another day — a strategy for saving time and sanity in the kitchen.

Fudgy One-Pot Brownies

Skip the double boilers, chopping chocolate and general kitchen mess. One pot and 15 minutes of hands-on time is all you need.

Moist Banana Muffins

Use up dark bananas in this muffin recipe no one can resist. Be sure not to overbeat.

Macaroni and Cheese

Kids and adults alike will welcome this ultimate comfort food made with all natural ingredients.

Teriyaki Chicken and Beef Skewers

Kids love Asian flavors and eating anything on a stick. This recipe is a win-win.

Taco Night

Katie defines festive taco night as the perfect dinner to counterbalance a cranky day. Ground chicken or turkey is a good alternative to beef.

Japanese Restaurant Salad

This salad is a perfect accompaniment to any Asian dish. The thick dressing makes a great topping for steamed or roasted veggies.
