Like an Old Friend in the Kitchen: The Mom 100 Cookbook – Good Cook Doris

I am embarrassed that it has taken so long to write this review. As part of a Boston Brunchers event I received a complimentary copy of The Mom 100 Cookbook by Katie Workman. When I first got the book I thought it was not the book for me – it was for someone who didn’t know their way in the kitchen, couldn’t cook without a recipe or make an easy dinner. I set it aside and left it for a little while.

Then, one night at dinner I started reading it and was impressed with the tips, tricks, and ideas in the introduction section. I decided to pick a few recipes and give them a try. The hubby called out a few page numbers and with a few adjustments for title pages and pictures we were on our way.

Boston Brunchers Mom Blogger Edition (Scollay Square) – umommy

Brunch is my favorite meal, hands down. You gotta love a meal that involves both savory and sweet. Plus an excuse to drink champagne before noon sounds good to me! So it comes to no surprise I jumped at the chance to join the Boston Brunchers for a special Mom brunch with cookbook author Katie Workman at Scollay Square.

Review: The Mom 100 Cookbook – A Boston Mom

I think I’ve posted several times about my lack of cooking skills. Baking and I get along pretty well but other than that I fall extremely short. When I was asked if I was interested in meeting cookbook author, Katie Workman, and reviewing her new cookbook, The Mom 100 Cookbook – I jumped at the chance. I try to cook all the time and a cookbook geared toward moms seemed easy and just what I needed.

Who doesn’t love a good brunch? Review: Scollay Square – A Boston Mom

Who doesn’t love a good brunch? I recently attended a Boston Brunchers event at Scollay Square in Boston. I had never been to this restaurant before but I had heard good things and was excited to try it. This place did not disappoint. The menu was pre-determined but I didn’t mind because I felt they were presenting their best options. I started with the Grilled Parma Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus w/Fresh Mozzarella, Oven Roasted Tomato, and Balsamic Syrup.

The Mom100 Cookbook – Don’t Mind the Mess

Thanks to the Boston Brunchers I got a chance to have a delightful meal with several other parent bloggers and meet Katie Workman, who’s just released the Mom 100 Cookbook. There is so much to like about this cookbook. I know pictures in cookbooks are a big deal for a lot of us. There’s a picture of EVERY recipe in here. And Katie (we’re on a first name basis now) builds the whole book around specific kinds of meals a Mom needs. There are 20 categories of meals, with 5 recipes each. She also gives recommendations for “fork in the road” meals, where you can separate the blander kid-style meal from the more complex adult-style meal. Because who wants to eat boring kids food?
