Sensible Cooking for Kids (and Moms!)

Finicky eaters, take notice: Chef Missy Chase Lapine is changing the way parents approach family meals--and getting kids to eat their veggies. In her New York Times best selling cookbook, The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids' Favorite Meals (Running Press, 2007), Chef Lapine dishes out creative ways to give recipes a nutritional boost, without sacrificing taste or fun. The Sneaky Chef was a quick sensation, becoming a New York Times bestseller in less than a month. Chef Lapine regularly appears on popular programs like The Today Show.

More Sneaky Recipes of Macho Proportion

While moms everywhere applaud her sensible recipe solutions for kids, Chef Lapine knows that children aren't the only ones making poor food decisions. The Sneaky Chef: How to Cheat on your Husband in the Kitchen (Running Press, 2008) is Chef Lapine's answer to women desperate to trade in their husbands' bacon cheeseburgers for healthier fare. Featuring recipes like "Love Me Tenderloin," "Barbell Burgers," and "Macho Meatballs," this second sneaky cookbook proves that "rabbit food" can be hearty and delicious.
