The subtitle of Taste of Home's 100 Family Meals is Bring the Family Back to the Dinner Table. With that name it is easy to see that the goal of this cookbook is to help get families eating together. Within the beginning pages are different ways to have fun while spending time in the kitchen and around the dinner table. One of the ideas is called "Table Talk" - fun questions to ask to get conversation flowing. There are also suggestions on how to make mealtime part of your family time You'll see how it can be possible to commit to making 100 sit-down meals in a year to enjoy with your family. 100 Family Meals contains 100 main dishes, with 183 other recipes to round out the meals.

There are nine chapters filled with recipes. Beefy Favorites, Simple Sides, and Sweet Surprises are a few of the chapter titles. Each one ends with a Meal Planner that includes 4 complete meals - an entree, side, and dessert, along with the ingredients list. Scattered throughout are little banners that say Slow Cooker, Eat Smart, Goes Great With, 5 Ingredients, or Fast Fix along with recipes. I think this makes finding the kind of recipe you want even easier.

My husband's family sat down together for dinner every night when he was growing up, as did my family. We continued that tradition when we married and had children. Even though our family is already committed to sitting down together for dinner, I really enjoy this cookbook. It is set up in a way that is appealing with its design and colorful photos. I have made more than 20 recipes from 100 Family Meals. They were easy to put together and the end result was a great tasting dish or treat. I recommend this cookbook to anyone looking to find some great recipes. I think it will be inspiring for those who are looking to find a way to create enjoyable meals eaten with family around the table. l was provided a complimentary review copy of this book.

The PB&J Pork Sandwiches recipe sounded so interesting I had to try it. I figured it was either really good tasting or not, nothing in between. I pretty much followed the recipe except I used regular chicken broth and mustard. Everyone at the table liked the Thai-inspired flavor of these sandwiches. The recipe suggests serving with coleslaw. I didn't have any but I can see how it would go well with the PB&J Pork Sandwiches.
