From the authors of the bestselling cookbook How to Feed a Family and the bloggers behind The Sweet Potato Chronicles comes the cookbook that will help parents navigate the perils of the busy school year, one meal (and snack) at a time.
If there's one calendar-packed time that can break a parent's spirit over and over again, it's the school year. For families, these months are about way more than just packing lunch boxes or making sure that the math homework gets done and the library books aren't returned late. They're about trying to shoehorn a healthy dinner into tight schedules that go in multiple directions; getting everyone fed before the school bus arrives; energizing kids for morning soccer practice and figuring out dinner when you get home after the dance recital. Throw in busy working parents with their own deadlines, or a babysitter canceling at the last minute, and before you know it, you're cruising the fast-food drive-thru more often than you'd like to admit.      Enter Laura Keogh and Ceri Marsh, your fearless leaders in this quest for survival. Their new book, The School Year Survival Cookbook, is a beautiful, fail-proof guide that addresses every major food dilemma parents face during the nearly 200 days of the school year, with 110 recipes and road-tested, effective strategies that will keep families on track even during the most chaotic weeks. Become a lunch ninja who packs school lunches the pickiest kid will love; master the art of the meal prep to save your sanity; put three essential recipes in your back pocket--The Transformers--and bring them out all week, cleverly revamped into new dishes; fuel your active kids so that their brains and bodies are fed. Do all of that with this cookbook, and feed your family healthy, delicious, inventive meals, like Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Burritos and Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies that start the day off right; Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches, Broccoli and Cheese Patties, and soups that promise that lunchboxes will come home empty; Parent of the Year-worthy dinners like Baked Fried Chicken, Herb Short Ribs, and Rigatoni with Spring Onions and Peas; and, bar-none snacks and treats, like Brownie Bites, Hawaiian Pizza Muffins, and a blueberry grunt that wil become your family's favorite dessert.      From strategic dinners that become school lunches to double-duty baking that puts the "fast" in breakfast, and step-by-step guides on how to give your boring leftovers one last tasty hurrah, along with Laura and Ceri's signature style and humor, The School Year Survival Cookbook is an indispensable guide for every parent, kitchen, and family.
