Family Kitchen

tanaramsay.jpgMost of us have heard of Gordon Ramsay — the all swearing, all dancing super-chef who spends his life cooking impossibly complicated recipes. Now his wife, Tana Ramsay, has published a cook book, Tana Ramsay’s Family Kitchen .

Her philosophy is that it is important to cook wholesome tasty food for the family while leaving time to play and communicate with everyone. It is my favourite new cookbook! I really like the way it has been split up between categories like “trying new tastes” and “cooking for the cupboard”. I really recommend it!

Available through Amazon UK or US .

I have this book too and love it! Even my husband uses it (to cook oatmeal with blueberries, to give you an idea on his culinary skills)!

Ohhh… I should get this cookbook.
But unfortunately, all my cookbooks are collecting dust these days. Even my new Ottolenghi cookbook…. I’ve only just admired the photos. I need more time in my day (and a nanny)!!! 🙂

Funny, I was just in Books for Cooks this morning, desperate for inspiration for family meals, and saw this book. She has at least one or two others. I had a squirmy one year old with me who was less than interested in cookbooks so I couldn’t do much more than a quick browse. BFC’s has a rather large family cooking section. If I have to make chicken or pasta one more time I’m going to scream. I bought sushi for lunch today! I need inspiration-what are everyone’s favorite family meals???!!!!!!

Have you tried poached fish (salmon, sole, tilapia, etc) in orange juice? My kids love it. Make your own pizza is big at our house as are turkey meatballs and steak.

Or couscous with dried apricots, toasted almonds, feta, spring onion and coriander. Mix with some orange juice, cinnamon and olive oil. Twenty minutes!

My kids love couscous but clean up is a bit of a time killer after dinner! I like the apricots/almond thing, will try it. We often do broiled (grilled in the uk) salmon in soy sauce and that is probably my kids favorite meal!

Things have gotten so bad in our house, I actually fed my boys scrambled eggs and toast last night for dinner. I have no inspiration. At least you all are cooking dinner for dinner instead of breakfast for dinner!

My son loves my version of chicken teriyaki: get chicken breast, cut it in strips and marinate it in teriyaki sauce for sometime (from 5 minutes till a few hours depending on when I remember) an then stir fry it!
