My Mom's a Good Cooker by Gabbie Krivonak

Wednesday, June 4, 2014
I believe working moms can have a career AND cook tasty and nutritious dinners for their families. It used to be routine for families to gather for the evening meal, and eat and talk about the day's affairs. Not so now. I have written this cookbook/guide to try to help change this trend. It contains strategies, tips, techniques and recipes I have used during my time as a working mom trying to put a good hot meal on the table at the end of the day. The benefits of home-cooked dinners are numerous .You, the mom, control the portion size, the fat content, and the salt in these meals. Childhood obesity is, in part, I believe, a result of the demise of the family dinner. This guide starts with the toddler years and progresses to the empty nest. 
I hope as you read this cookbook and guide, you find a way to incorporate the family dinner into your life. The recipes are easy to prepare and the benefits great. I hope your children say to you after one of these dinners, "Mom, you are a good cooker."

She is an avid cook and has taken classes in classical French cooking at L' Academie de Cuisine of Bethesda, Maryland. She is the small business owner of and blogger for My Mom's a Good Cooker, Inc.

Goodreads Summary

This book is great for the mom or cook in the family that is looking to expand their horizons and try out some simple new recipes. It covers anything from making basic marinara sauce from scratch, to full dinners that are easy to prepare, don't take hours of preparation work, and also don't break the bank in the process. The instructions are straight forward and very easy to follow. Practically anyone who can follow directions could open this book and find that it is a great help in the kitchen when cooking for the family.

My personal favorite in the book was the chicken tacos recipe. All of the ingredients were easy to find at the local grocery store and the whole meal came together in well under a half an hour. The family at home loved it too. You should definitely check this book out for your next adventure in the kitchen.
