In Search of Cookbooks and Recipes for Busy Moms

In Search of Cookbooks and Recipes for Busy Moms 1I like cooking and I like "eating in." I actually prefer it to going out to restaurants. It's just generally healthier, less expensive, and more delicious.

That said, I have a one-year-old who either wants to be held or entertained - and doesn't appreciate her mama cooking for more than 20 minutes at a time. If she does decide to entertain herself, she almost always wants to set up camp right around the oven or under the stove, which is not at all safe.

For these reasons, I find myself returning to my five favorite recipes every single week: (1) chicken enchiladas, (2) angel hair pasta with tomatoes, basil, and avocado, (3) beef stew, (4) bean and cheese burritos, and (5) soup and biscuits.

These recipes are great, but I need a wider selection to choose from. The catch? I need recipes that can be prepared and cooked in 20 minutes or less (emphasizing the word, less).

Please share cookbook titles or full recipes that meet that criteria. I'm planning to expand my cookbook library within the next month.

  1. Hi,

    May I suggest, instead of cookbooks you consider menu planning services. For a low fee you'll get your pre done menu, recipes, and shopping lists in your email ebox every week. Just look it over, print out the shopping list and your ready to go to the grocery store! And yes, since they are made by busy moms, for busy moms, the recipes are usually "quick-and-easy" Here's my review of my favorite meal planning services
