What's for dinner, Mom?

Sounds familiar, doesn't it? I used to ask my own mother that question, and now it's my turn to answer it. The thing is, I do not always have a ready answer, and most of the time I cast a sheepish glance at the dining table often helplessly and mutter something like, 'let's see...' or 'pass me my phone please, we're ordering food' or worse, 'get dressed; we're going out for dinner.'

What's for Dinner, Mom? has definitely better answers. This printed book presents bulk cooking: the secret to a successful kitchen career. Author Lorrie Flem shows you examples to follow, explains methods you can adapt and plans you can execute to help you produce nutritious meals for your family at regular intervals without losing your sanity or feeling tethered to a rope due to time constraints.

Biblical references and quotes on food injected into the contents of this book triggered nostalgia for home.  The Homemaking Tips from the 1800s appealed to the history lover in me. You will love finding how to involve your children as you work your way around cooking and dining.  The multi-tasking tips are apt for busy moms. I chuckled when I got to this part of the book thinking how at my international business communication job I could multi-task in three languages, but do not know how to multi-task at home. This book has given me ideas how to domesticate such skill.

Now the recipes. They're the yummy stuff in the book and you've been waiting to hear from that, haven't you? I guarantee they are easy with ingredients you do not have to look further for than your nearest grocery. I am excited to try the 'stretchers.' You will know what I'm talking about and more by getting this spiral-bound book in your hands.

  2. I can cook but I'm not really good at it. If it's not too salty, it's almost tasteless. Haha!

    When I got here in Singapore, I sometimes have to cook for myself and for my Dad and my step mommy. I don't cook very often though. Usually it's my Tita (step mom) who cooks for us but sometimes I just feel like cooking for them. So a good recipe book would really help me a lot. :)

  5. With cookbooks I usually just stare at the pics and drool. The title echoes a lot of people's (including me) question during dinnertime.
