    When a super-speed reader doesn't have a car for a month due to a predatory car insurance industry, you can get a LOT of reading done!!

    I received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do .

    Delight your family's palate with a rainbow of delicious, plant-based dishes!

    I enjoyed the seasonal aspect of this plant-based cookbook, and loved the fact that a professional photo accompanied every recipe (other than the staples at the end). The author is likeable and chatty, and she gives a little blurb about each recipe.

    As a mother of young kids, Moreno focuses on healthy but approachable foods that kids are likely to enjoy. That said, these are definitely better suited to young kids who have grown up eating this way or who are too young to know better. That

    Originally published on my blog Nonstop Reader.

    The Colorful Family Table is a cookbook and plant-based tutorial with family friendly (and colorful) recipes by Ilene Godofsky Moreno. Due out 3rd Dec 2019 from BenBella books, it's 256 pages and will be available in ebook and paperback formats.

    These recipes are arranged around (mostly) locally available seasonal ingredients. As such, with variations in growing and crop maturation differences, some adjustments for locally available produce will

    I really liked this cookbook. I liked it enough that I ordered her cookbook The Colorful Kitchen.

    I tried a variety of her recipes and was pleased.

    1. Ingredients: Many of her recipes have a lot of ingredients, but she almost never includes anything that would not be in a well stocked vegan pantry or fridge. Basic grains, beans, nuts, fruits, and veggies are included in the recipes. Most of the time, I have the ingredients.

    2. Ease of preparation. Really easy. A few minutes of prep time, and I am

    Wow, I was so impressed with this cook book! I found it really easy to follow and loved the bright, vibrant food photographs. The ingredients used were readily available and easy to get hold of – which is often a problem with some recipe books I find, which include a variety of weird and wonderful ingredients.. I found the recipes were also really family friendly which was great to see. I found quite a few I know the boys will enjoy.

    One of the other great features for me was the seasonal

    Moreno’s life has a lot to do with food as she is a health coach, recipe developer, food blogger, and food photographer. In this cookbook, she shares her ideas for healthy eating with each recipe -- recipes that are beautifully illustrated with her own photographs in such a way to make you race into the kitchen to try them yourself.
    I like balance in my diet, and I often eat a little of everything. Moreno’s recipes are vegan friendly,

    Happy pub day to this cookbook!

    If anyone knows me, they know I hate vegetables. That being said - I know I need to start liking more vegetables. This book is the way to it!!

    This book is organized by season and which recipes are great for that season. I love the classic recipes with a new take on them (like cauli-broc tater tots!)

    I made the smoky Brussels chips (and I HATE Brussels sprouts) and they were delicious. The author claimed that she had her picky toddler chanting "more Brussels!" &

    Blogger and healthy eating guru Ilene Godofsky Moreno returns with her new book The Colorful Family Table. This cookbook is full of healthy vegetarian/plant-based recipes for the whole family. She has some good options that will appeal to the young and old palates in the family. Since she is catering to a younger demographic the ingredients and spices are very basic. She says that she has left the recipes a lot more kid friendly when it comes to flavors and spices but I wish the recipes had ...more

    I loved reading The Colorful Family Table! Everyone, no matter their tastes or cooking style, will find lots of great recipes and advice within the book. I truly found it hard to quit reading despite having to go to sleep! The book's recipes are sorted out by seasons which is excellent in helping identify fresh in-season meal ingredients! The introduction section is a must-read providing a large amount of knowledge! The recipe photos are vivid and the recipes are perfectly explained! The ...more

    I received a digital Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I loved this! I have an entire house full of picky and stubborn eaters, and being able to discover delicious foods that we all can enjoy was "perfect". I'm not a chef. As a matter of fact, I'm not even the cook in the family, so I appreciated that these were all simple recipes that I could cook, and spend a lot of time in the kitchen! If you are looking for kid-friendly recipes, and have
