Synopsis

Me, You and the Kids Too : The Ultimate Time-Saving Cookbook - Every Recipe Feeds the Whole Family by Renee Elliott

Cooking for a family can be a huge challenge that leaves you feeling like you're always making compromises. In Me, You and the Kids Too, Renee Elliott makes this do-able. She shows that you don't have to cook different recipes to please everyone at the table - and that you never have to sacrifice flavour or nutrition to get meals made without stress. Starting with delicious recipes that your family will adore, Renee shows you how to tweak each one so that you can make versions of that meal for your baby. Cook up Herb-Crusted Fish, for example, in just 30 minutes from start to finish. While you're preparing the main dish, you can follow the mini-variation recipes to make a Salmon with Broad Beans & Sweet Potato Puree version for your 6 - 9-month-old or a Herby Salmon with Broad Beans & Sweet Potato Puree for your 9 - 12-month-old. From Roasted Vegetable Lasagne and hearty Chicken Burgers to Scallops with Spicy Black Bean Sauce and Lamb Tagine, all with easy-to-follow variations, these recipes will bring home-cooked food back to your table, for all the family to enjoy. Whether you need a quick breakfast or lunch for everyone, or you want to enjoy an indulgent, romantic dinner with your partner after you've fed your little angels, bathed them and read them their favourite stories - this book shows you how to do it all.
