It is an undeniable truth: Parents Need to Eat Too! Food and parenting writer Debbie Koenig addresses the dilemma faced by so many parents coping with the demands of a new baby by offering simple, healthy, and delicious recipes for moms and dads who are too sleep-deprived, too frazzled, or simply too busy to cook nutritious meals for themselves.

We have only tried a handful of recipes so far, but I have enjoyed them so much I purchased a copy as a shower gift for a friend. I would have even purchased one for a vegetarian friend if I had realized how many recipes would fit her diet because most would.

I enjoy cooking, but with the baby, work, and school finding time to prepare a meal can be difficult. Having recipes that I can work on a little at a time is wonderful. There are a few somewhat obscure items called for in some of the recipes (anchovy paste, jarred piquillo peppers, prepared polenta, etc.) that may be hard to find if you don't live in a major metropolis, but most are shelf stable and available on Amazon. Our favorite so far has been the Sauteed Chicken in a Mushroom Sauce (page 118-119), my husband and I were able to tag-team this recipe easily so I could feed the baby (he likes for cooking to be as simple as possible), we just cooked some wild rice and served it with a salad - bam! an easy & delicious meal in about half an hour. I also love that every recipe has a baby food option, which I truly enjoy using when our baby is old enough to do so.

Bottom line: If you hate cooking, will this book change you? No. If you enjoy cooking but are overwhelmed with your new responsibilities will this book help you feel like you've got things under control? A little bit.

I love this book! It's hands-down my favorite cookbook. I've had it for almost four years now and continue to use it on a weekly basis, if not more. I have several favorite recipes from this book and there are still so many I haven't tried. The author provides just the right balance that all parents need - delicious and nutritious food ideas that are relatively easy to prepare but still interesting enough that you'll want to try them.

This is probably the sixth copy I've purchased - I give it to every friend I know expecting a baby! It's actually great for non-parents too -- anyone who wants to cook at home but doesn't have endless hours to do it.

Thank you, Deborah Koenig, for giving parents everywhere the courage to eat good food too!

There are a lot of "recipes for new parents" cookbooks out there, and most of them end up being some patronizing mix of "throw some cream of something soup over some noodles" and "have you tried a salad?" This book has a wide variety of real food you actually want to eat, with great tips thrown in about how to manage your pantry, organize your routine, etc. I really love it.

This book is a lifesaver. I have zero motivation and time to cook as a new mom and working mother, but this book has simple recipes that taste more complicated than they actually are. Even if you're not a parent, I'm recommending this book to you because it's just good food that's easy and quick to make. Best of all is that it includes a list of pantry recommendations to keep on hand that allow you to make most of the recipes inside. The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't have photos. Publishing world, take note! A recipe book with no photos is no fun at all. I would have never bought this had I picked it up off the shelf. (I bought it because it was recommended to me.) Additionally, if you're breastfeeding, there's a section of recipes that include foods to help boost supply. For those of you with older kids, each recipe has a "Make Baby Food" suggestion at the end that helps you break down the "adult" meal into a kid-friendly version.

This is my new go-to cookbook as a new mom - but I would have loved it before too, just as someone who doesn't enjoy spending all day cooking. We have tried several recipes and loved almost all of them. I love that the author tells you where you can take short cuts (e.g. using some canned/frozen/pre-made ingredients) and where it's worth it to go fresh. She also gives helpful tips about what to keep in the pantry. I feel it usually takes me longer to make most recipes than the cookbook says it will - but these are really do-able in the given time. Great resource!

This cookbook is great! I wish I would have had this when my daughter was born. It is filled with great recipes and helpful information regarding healthy food. She includes things that you would never think about on your own as a new parent. (At least most of us didn't know about this stuff.) It is well organized into sections for specific things that you are trying to accomplish with food. IE foods that are easy to make, things that you can eat with one hand, foods that promote lactation...It's just great! I really love it and will probably give it to every new parent from now on. It is especially great for "foodies". I personally am not an experienced cook, but these recipes are fantasic and I look forward to trying all of them. She also makes this a fun read while you're at it. Seriously-just buy it! Worth every penny!!!

I purchased this book after seeing that 100% of reviews (at the time) were 5 stars. Clearly, it was a book that I needed as a new mother. It has been a good addition to my small cook book collection, and some of the advice is very sound. I have cooked many recipes out of it (but there are still many to go), and it is one of the first books I pull off the shelf when I want to plan the weeks' meals.

Here's why I don't give it 5 stars: the recipes are good, but not amazing. They're solid, parent friendly, not-too-fussy, but more fancy than just opening a few cans and jars dishes, but 5 star worthy? Nope. Also, My husband, who is 6'3' and likes to eat has mentioned that some of the meals that I've made out of this just don't satisfy as much as he would like - they feel like snacks to him.

So, would I recommend this to a friend? Sure. Would I buy it for them as a gift? Maybe. Do I regret buying it? Nope. When I want hands-down-amazing food, will I turn here? Probably not.

Hope that's helpful.
Has some great ideas and I appreciate the suggestions to adapt the recipes for babies as we will be serving table food to our little one. Some of the ingredients are a little too exotic for us and would be probably be difficult for us to locate, but overall the recipes are good.
