I love, love, love this book. I use it all the time. Most of the meals cost me less the 12$ and I feed a family of 5 three boys under 11. All most everything is kid friendly. I've bought three more and have Had a subscription for years!!!

Awesome recipes. Just need to get past the fact some photos look circa 1990's, but otherwise easy and inexpensive recipes.

Good options and simple recipes. But using a lot of canned/processed foods which is what I am trying to steer clear of lately.
