What could be more important to parents than a healthy, well-fed family? As two urban, working moms, Ceri Marsh and Laura Keogh learned quickly how challenging healthy meal-times can be. So they joined forces to create the Sweet Potato Chronicles, a website written for, and by, non-judgemental moms, packed full of nutritious recipes for families.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ideas! I bought this just after it was released and have been really pleased with it! It's full of great information, amusing recipe introductions and beautiful colour photos for almost every recipe. The recipes are generally very easy, quick and healthy. Kale and red pepper, cheesey calzones (p.140), Cocoa Date Bars (p. 140), Wagamama Cookies (p. 122) Sweet Potato Mac n' Cheese (p. 81) with Kale Bread Crumbs (p. 82) and Sweet Potato French toast (p. 17) are my fav's so far! I do agree with the previous reviewer that some items are hard to locate in smaller areas. I found brown rice syrup and agave nectar at the bulk barn and spelt flour is available in grocery stores but it is quite pricey! Overall this book is really great for healthy, easy ideas! My complaints are that I wish there were more grain and side dish recipes (but I do appreciate that many of the dishes are not in need of any additional sides) and I would like to have seen nutritional info.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for families wanting to serve healthy tasty food The Good Stuff Delicious wholesome and healthy recipes Lots of pictures and the photography is marvelous - you will drool (Every recipe looks like you could taste it right on the page) Recipes are organized nicely, easy to read and easy to follow Plenty of variety in types of recipes Love the picture of one of the women cooking and drinking a glass of wine - now that is my kind of mom Never comes off preachy - as often is the case in these type of cookbooks Didn't make it yet (ricotta cheese is insanely pricey in Calgary and we on a tight budge right now) but cannot wait to try Rosalia's Grain Pie - looks seriously yummy and easy to make Appreciated and agree with letting the kids help you cook and bake - both my boys bake with me & 12 yr old already can make basic meals for himself - he makes a mean Egg McMuffin (yeah yeah - this ain't McDonalds but what else are we going to call it - his is healthy though) Chicken Chili Tacos is going to be a regular staple for us - everybody loved it and it was easy to make - corn tortillas were not a hit though (could be the brand but they were not very good and we even grilled them a little on the bbq) - we may just use our regular ancient grain ones Can't wait to share this cookbook with my new friend, Sarah The Not So Good Stuff Some ingredients hard to find in smaller towns - for example went to 6 different stores before I found spelt flour and the stuff cost a mint - would have liked a substitute listed for it (though in many other cases like brown rice syrup they did mention one) Will be hard to get my kids to eat many of the recipes - but am willing to put in the effort (5 yr old ate the tacos but it took me an hour to get him to eat them) Favorite Recipes Corn Pancakes - Pg 66 Maple Corn Bread - Pg113 (Yummy, Yummy!!) Roasted Chickpeas - Pg 129 Chicken Chili Tacos - Pg 149 (So fast & simple to make) Cocoa Date Bars - Pg 125 4 Dewey's We received this from Random House in exchange for an honest review
