Antonia on KTLA5 with Quick & Easy Dinner Recipes for Busy Parents

On Thursday, September 5th 2013, Chef Antonia met live with KTLA5 to discuss quick and easy lunch and dinner recipes for busy parents. The Busy Mom’s Cookbook has 100 delicious and easy recipes and is now available in Paperback.

Top takeaways:

  • Interactive lunches are a fun idea – kids love to put things together (great way to encourage them to eat healthy food)
  • Kids are more adventurous with food when they can build it themselves
  • Dinner idea: Fish tacos are easy to make and take about 15 minutes
  • Fluffer Nutter Sandwich is “Crazy Good” –
