Good recipe book for families?

I like a physical recipe book to work from - too annoying to keep refreshing a website.

Any recommendations for a good book for family meals?

I have a 2.5yo and 15mo twins. DH and DTs will eat pretty much anything but I suppose I'm a fan of traditional fare.

Oh and I don't have a lot of time so fast dishes are favoured!

DK Feed the Family - look on the Book People as they have in on there for £6 at the moment. Loads of easy recipes with sensible ingredients.

We've loved the baby led weaning cookbook and use it regularly even though dc are now 2 and nearly 5. Great healthy recipes, just have to tweak the quantities sometimes.

I'd take a look at 'Feed the Family.' A friend recommended it to me on Teepee, the recommendations app, a couple of weeks ago and I got it right away. I've used it a few times already - not fancy recipes but the little ones are happy (which means I am too!)

I'll check out Feed the Family thanks!

I've used Jamie Oliver family recipes a few times and they didn't work out/go down as well as I'd hoped. Same with the baby-led weaning recipes.

I do find Annabel Karmel recipes straightforward and they seem to suit our family so I might check our Busy Mum's Cookbook too.

Thanks a million, I seem to spend most of my life wondering about what to cook grin
