I think I have the same problems with this cookbook as many others have. It's one thing to "hide" veggie purees into main entrees for toddlers who are just starting to eat whole foods, but at this point I'm not really interested in hiding healthy and tasty veggies from my preschooler who is almost four years old. So I haven't actually made any of the recipes yet from this book, but I've copied about 6 of them which I'm interest in trying like Cinnamon-Maple Quinoa and Orzo Risotto with Chicken I think I have the same problems with this cookbook as many others have.
But for the most part I am not super excited about using purees anymore I want my child to recognize foods in their whole form, learn how to prepare and cook them with me, and learn to enjoy them, or at least try them at minimum. TCL Call : Drop in the bucket. Apr 17, Briel rated it it was amazing.
Just like her initial cookbook Deceptively Delicious , this cookbook is most beneficial to a specific audience: parents whose small children refuse to put anything even remotely healthy in their mouths. I immediately bought these two cookbooks and went to work - pureeing and cooking up a storm. The additional w Just like her initial cookbook Deceptively Delicious , this cookbook is most beneficial to a specific audience: parents whose small children refuse to put anything even remotely healthy in their mouths.
The additional work and it is work of pureeing vegetables is worth it since my kids are eating it. Biggest surprise: my husband and I are actually enjoying the food too!
The only fail so far has been eggs with cauliflower in my opinion, the taste of cauliflower is hard to hide. Jan 12, Joi Grady rated it liked it. So, lie to them. Dec 26, Hazel Leu rated it it was amazing. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here.

Double Delicious! - AbeBooks - Jessica Seinfeld:
Found this at my local library, and glad I did! This cookbook includes simple, healthy, family friendly meals that I actually will cook! I enjoyed Jessica's "Kitchen Cabinet" comments, food facts, and stories found with each recipe. Most recipes include a full page photo of each dish, which is always nice when your doing a quick flip-through for meal ideas. I liked this cookbook so much I'm planning to b Found this at my local library, and glad I did! I liked this cookbook so much I'm planning to buy my own copy for my kitchen very soon!
May 05, Jenette rated it it was amazing. Absolutely love the upgrades in this book! I've been doing the figures and writing them in under each recipe in her previous book. Nutritional ticker strip is an extremely valuable time saver for a person like me who has to keep track of those numbers! Delicious recipes, good variety and selection. Another fantastic winner for my pantry shelf! Mar 03, Rachel rated it really liked it Shelves: cookbooks. This is a follow-up to her first cookbook, Deceptively Delicious.
Basically it's all recipes that incorporate vegetable purees. I don't really have a problem getting my kids to eat veggies, but I could use more veggies myself! I haven't tried any of the breakfast or dessert recipes from this book, but there are some great main dish ideas and I plan to make more of them. This book is definitely worth a look because it has some great ideas.

Dec 21, Linda rated it really liked it Shelves: cooking. I'm really excited about this book. I love the premise of putting various pureed veggies into everyday recipes. I think it will be a great way to up the healthy factor.
I'm sure I won't make every recipe; some don't appeal to me. But looking forward to trying them out. And I like the idea of prepping the purees early and freezing them so you have them on hand. And I love the design of the book, the spiral binding, the little notes throughout. It's a fun cookbook! Oct 10, Mary Chambers rated it it was amazing. Jessica has alot of good ideas for preparing more nutrtious foods for the family. She also gives great instructions for preparing, pureeing and preserving vegetables. I would especially recommend this book to any parent of 'picky' or "finicky" or even regular eaters.
I checked this book out at the library.

Oct 26, Jess rated it really liked it. I liked this book better than the first book she wrote. Its very practical. My super picky eater will eat most of the foods. The recipies are clear enough for my husband to follow and things can be made ahead. Dec 30, Rachel Seiders rated it it was amazing. This a great cookbook! Finding ways to slip in healthy foods can be hard. Not so much for my daughter but for my husband it is a challenge. These recipes are easy to follow and are made with things that most people already have in there cubbords.

What more could a busy person ask for? Aug 16, Megan rated it really liked it. I think this one might be even better than Deceptively Delicious which is the one I have. There are a lot more grown up ideas and meals in here. I have got to start puree-ing some vegetables around here! Jan 27, Adriane rated it it was ok. So far I've tried 5 recipes or so and they've all been awesome. I've never had that many successes in a row out of one cookbook.
