When I worked at Cookie, I was lucky enough to be surrounded by moms who (collectively) knew the answers to everything. Really everything! From Should I send my late-birthday kid to kindergarten or not? to What should I wear to a summer afternoon wedding? to Is Coraline too old for my six-year-old? But the real bonus was that two of them, editor-in-chief Pilar and executive editor Alanna, above, were astonishing cooks who loved nothing more than talking about food — particularly the kinds of food that their kids loved to wolf down. We spent our last year at Cookie compiling all our notes into a book and the result is something we promise is going to change the way you feel about cooking for your kids. It’s called Time For Dinner: Strategies, recipes, and inspiration for every night of the week (Chronicle) and will be out in September 2010. If you happen to be press and you’re interested in getting on the review copy list, you can email David_Hawk@chroniclebooks.com.

Time for Dinner is filled with more than 200 recipes–everything from customizable lasagnas to sushi hand rolls that look like ice cream cones–that will inspire your family dinner. (Victoria Granof developed the recipes and Marcus Nilsson shot the gorgeous photos.) You’ll also learn how to:

  • Make one meal that everyone in the family wants to eat
  • Break out of your rut
  • Keep the kids distracted while you cook
  • Plan and prep so you’re not scrambling for ideas every night
  • Master a few basic techniques you can fall back on
  • Reclaim dinner so you can start enjoying meals again!

    This looks like a great cookbook. I have been looking around the web to see if I can locate some recipes from the book, or the table of contents, but haven’t found anything so far. Could you post some examples of recipe titles? I would like to get an idea of the contents before I buy. thanks.
