"Sarah's recipes are my favorite kind of recipes--wholesome, simple, and most important, strategic. Feeding young kids often requires a bona fide battle plan, and this book outlines that plan deliciously."-- Jenny Rosenstrach, author of Dinner: A Love Story and How to Celebrate Everything "I consider myself pretty adept at cooking wholesome meals, but since I've had kids, I have found it more difficult to make something for dinner that everyone will eat. Sarah's book is filled with ideas that help put a colorful and virtuous meal on the table without complicating things or taking a ton of time. I'll be using this book as a weekly reference."--Sara Forte, author of Sprouted Kitchen and Sprouted Kitchen: Bowl + Spoon "Sarah Waldman's Feeding a Family is filled with recipes for simple, wholesome, and seasonal meals. Maybe more important, it offers a recipe for cultivating a family mealtime tradition where stress and fuss melt away and togetherness takes center stage. Written in a style that's relatable, upbeat, and encouraging, Feeding a Family gives parents of young children pragmatic tips for reclaiming dinnertime, one meal at a time."--Erin Boyle, author of Simple Matters and creator of the blog Reading My Tea Leaves "Sarah Waldman's Feeding a Family manages to be beautifully modern and dreamily old-fashioned in equal measure. It reminds us that taking the time to cook from scratch is one of the most full-hearted ways to care for a family and provides the tools and season-by-season recipes to make it happen. The deliciously homespun desserts alone are worth the price of the book."--Katie Sullivan Morford, author of Rise & Shine
