I have spoken about my friend Kelsey before (saffron rice recipe & drinking lattes) and have been itching with anticipation for over a year to share news with you! Kesley has been hard at work writing her cookbook ‘The Naptime Chef: Fitting Great Food Into Family Life‘ and it is now published!

When the book arrived at our house, I left it on the counter for one minute while I stirred some sauce. Along came my husband who picked it up and started flipping through it. This man, who is not one that often takes interest in cookbooks, stated ‘I love the photos in this book and hope you will be making me something from Kelsey’s book today. I immediately tweeted Kelsey to tell her.

I was so excited for Kelsey that she told me to go ahead and share a fabulous chewy cookie recipe AND give a copy of her great cookbook away!!

Need.Them.All.Now.

From Kelsey: “I am a home cook who firmly believes that you don’t have to give up being a foodie just because you are a parent. After my daughter was born I quickly learned that it is next to impossible to get anything done when chasing a child around the house. So I developed a new way of cooking my favorite recipes based on the down time that was available to me during the day – her afternoon naptime – and began calling myself The Naptime Chef. By planning well and employing smart prepping techniques I find that our family can always enjoy great meals without compromising quality or taste. I write about capturing this time in my life as I develop a new sensibility about cooking as a parent, and learn how to fit great food into family life. Sometimes I have plenty of time in the kitchen, and sometimes I cook on the fly. But, no matter what, I love feeding my family and the process of creating food we all can enjoy.”

Disclosure: I received a copy of this lovely book for review and then begged to give a copy away because I love the book!

I like to cook larger meals ahead of time and freeze smaller portions. It’s so nice to be able to defrost and heat dinner on a busy night!
