Has there been / will there be a Mumsnet Cook Book ?

Can't find trace of one, but I think it'd be a really useful idea.

Finding good recipes for babies / toddlers is a bit of a 'mare. It seems that the only ones around line Annabel Karmel's pockets. I've tried a couple of her books but find them a bit, well, pants really (sorry, Annabel!).

What about a Mumsnet book containing favourite recipes from mumsnetters ? With as many freezer-friendly options as poss ! I, for one, would buy it.

Great idea. Would make a lovely present too.

Annabel seems to be a bit 'pizza faces' and cakes shaped like trains.

Oh I'd buy it too!! And I'd love to contribute a few recipes to it.

Yes it's a really good idea - real recipes from real mums - not a grated nutmeg in site We have suggested it to Cassells our publishers in the past - we should definitely have another go at it, so many thanks for the timely reminder. In the meantime shall we get tech to set up a recipe topic on chat so we can get going?

A very good idea. I want to put in my order now.
A real book from real mums.

Take two fishfingers, add peas and mashed potato. Repeat each day until your children leave home.

lol, wilbur

But surely if you are having fishfingers, the best way would be to wrap in two slices of white, buttered bread and add ketchup

That's only when I'm making dinner for dh and me, as a treat.

I'd buy it too! I'd like a section in it of meals that are good for kids that can be jazzed up a bit for grown ups too. There was a thread about this a long time ago wasn't there?

LadyCodworth Wed 18-Feb-04 18:39:26

yes But I wont buy it if its all organic schmanic with butternut squash.

I think there should be sections called
"BUt I dont like Beans" - cue recipes on beans.....
Or ways to disguise egg. (dark sunglasses)
Or differnt breakfasts

I want butternut squash AND fishfinger sandwiches

bundle Wed 18-Feb-04 18:45:51

..but not together

tech (MNHQ) Wed 18-Feb-04 21:53:15

We've added the recipes topic.....

I would buy this too - especially if it had anecdotes, advice etc on how to get kids stuff - like Coddy suggests
