101 Simple Busy-Family Recipes for Your Slow Cooker, Sheet Pan, Instant Pot®, and More. This is the cookbook to turn to when all hope of a homemade, wholesome dinner seems lost: when the fridge is empty, when it's already 8pm, when one kid has soccer practice and the other dance, when there's no time for cleanup because homework has to get done. Just like her blog, King's book is tirelessly encouraging and realistic. The recipes feature bright vegetables and affordable pantry ingredients. The book, uniquely arranged by "excuses," includes sidebars with mealtime conversation starters and helpful cooking hints.
