I hope my kids never have a chance to read Emily Franklin’s book, Too Many Cooks. The reason why: this book makes my sad attempts at cooking even more pathetic than they already are.
Pre-kids, the author was a professional chef and foodie. Her book chronicles her life in the kitchen, cooking for a family of six, over the course of a year. She shares over 100 yummy recipes along with everyday life family stories.
I hesitate to call it a “cookbook” because it’s not that. It’s basically a year-long story about a Mom who happens to have a cooking background, having fun in the kitchen testing different foods and recipes on her family as she multi-tasks everyday at just being a Mom. She shares plenty of fun antidotes along the way that any Mom can appreciate.
It’s a fun read I think everyone can relate to (whether or cook or not) with a variety of recipes like good old corn pudding to Egg Nog Pancakes and Kahlua Sauce. (yum!)
