The Mumsnet family cookbook - for parents, by parents
You've woken up with bed-head, there's breakfast to be made, children to be taken to school, lunches to be packed and jobs to go to. You all get home, a playmate comes over at the last minute, your plans fall by the wayside, everyone's clamouring for food. It can be hard feeding a family, and it can be even harder to come up with new, healthy and exciting ideas that will inspire you, let alone your children.
But there's no reason to fret. Top Bananas! brings you a collection of 120 tasty and hassle-free recipes - recommended, tweaked, tried and tested by real-life mums. Without sermonising, it provides heaps of helpful advice and nutritional information, and the top ten recipes in these twelve categories: Breakfast, Packed Lunch, Soup, Fast Food, Sunday Lunch, Veggies, Slow Cooking, One Pot Wonders, Cooking with Children, Party Food, Pudding and Baking. Suitable for children and grown-ups alike, the recipes include: one-pot lentil chicken, speedy noodle soup, beef stifado, kid-friendly curry, rock and sausage rolls, the jammiest of tarts, ice cream cone cakes and great balls of broccoli (a sure-fire way to get your kids eating greens).
With a sprinkling of wit, a foreword from Mumsnet founder Justine Roberts, and beautiful colour photography throughout, this sassy book will add excitement and fun to family cooking - and you'll never be stuck for ideas again.
