    THE BLUE BLOODS COOKBOOK: 120 RECIPES THAT BRING YOUR FAMILY TO THE TABLE Written by Bridget Moyahan and Wendy Howard Goldberg with Chris Peterson 2015; St. Martin's Press (288 Pages) Genre: food, cooking, based on tv show, actress RATING: 3 STARS I am a big fan of Blue Bloods even though I am a season and a half behind (damn PVR!) at the moment.

Who does not like a show starring Tom Selleck and Donnie Whalberg, with cops and mysteries and wholesome family dinners?! I have to say one of my favourite scenes in every episode is when the whole family gets together for Sunday night dinners and bicker. When I was quite young our family did have dinners like this but bigger, louder and with a lot more bickering. When most of got to school age our family drifted away from this, and being an only child dinners were quiet and quick. Part of me still longs for the big family dinners and that is one aspect of the show that appeals to me. I was very excited to see that they were putting out a cookbook! I am so glad I decided to borrow it from the library first as I was quite disappointed. There were some stories from the show in the book but it was more on Bridget and even the recipes had less to do with the show and was again more of Bridget's favourites. The recipes are good comfort food for Sunday dinners but nothing more to them than standard recipes found online. My Novelesque Blog

    A nice cookbook but I didn't think it was anything too special. The recipes are pretty simple and sound good but are pretty common. As a more experienced cook, I found that I already have favorite recipes for most of the dishes in this book. I would recommend this book to more beginner cooks or those looking just for recipes for everyday, common dishes like meatloaf, pot roast and mashed potatoes. I received a copy of this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. A nice cookbook but I didn't think it was anything too special.

    One of the reasons the TV show "Blue Bloods" is so popular is the family ties cemented in each episode with the finale of Sunday dinner. It celebrates the family ties we all long for and seldom find. This cookbook celebrates that series,its cast and the bond. It's put together by ocipesne of the stars, the wife of an executive producer with contributions from cast and crew. Basics offered along with more elaborate recipes. Lavish photos look delicious, I just wish each dish had its own photo.

    If you are familiar with the television show Blue Bloods you are aware that every episode has the family dinner scene. Despite the busy schedules of a trauma nurse, police officers, and other family members, that dinner scene always happens.

Despite the busy schedules of a trauma nurse, police officers, and other family members, that dinner scene always happens. That show anchor led to the creation of the The Blue Bloods Cookbook: 120 Recipes That Will Bring Your Family To The Table by Bridget Moynahan and Wendy Howard Goldberg with the help of Chris Peterson. The book is broken into eight sections covering everything from soups to salads, main dishes, desserts, and more. Each recipe has detailed instructions regarding ingredients and how to make the meal. While there is information on number of services the dish will make, there is a lack of information regarding the dietary and nutritional information. In addition to the 120 recipes and the colorful pictures of completed dishes, there are behind the scenes details of what goes on at the set during filming. Along with details from the set and the recipes shared by cast members, a real highlight of the book is the section titled “Blue Bloods Family Dinner Menu” that starts on page 255. The six pages here suggest meals from appetizers to dessert with the name of the dish and page number listed. While the section references the fact there are holiday meals in the book, there are also plenty of other dishes to occupy your non-holiday cooking and eating. A nine page index brings the nearly 300 page book to a close. Filled with basic and holiday meals along with plenty of neat stuff from behind the scenes of the show, The Blue Bloods Cookbook: 120 Recipes That Will Bring Your Family To The Table is a good one. Despite the obvious lack of important nutritional and dietary information, it does its job of promoting the show and family dinner time very well. No matter your personal preferences, at least some of the 120 recipes included should work for you and your family.

    Whether you enjoy Blue Bloods the television series or not, if you enjoy "traditional American" cooking (read that as meat and potatoes style 1970s style American food) you'll find plenty of good, useful recipes in this collection. There's a bonus in that some of the recipes seem to have been modified to conform to more current acceptable levels of fats, salt and sugar. Oh, and I almost forgot, if you're a fan of the show then you'll also get snippets about characters and backstage happenings fr Whether you enjoy Blue Bloods the television series or not, if you enjoy "traditional American" cooking (read that as meat and potatoes style 1970s style American food) you'll find plenty of good, useful recipes in this collection.

Oh, and I almost forgot, if you're a fan of the show then you'll also get snippets about characters and backstage happenings from the set too. If you're vegan or even vegetarian, you'll be mostly out of luck with the recipes but there are a few included as several of the cast are Veggies. And, since most of my own cooking is vegetarian, there are plenty of recipes that I can convert from this book and make for my family and friends. A particularly delightful find for me was Nikki's Red Velvet Cupcakes with Ermine Frosting on page 225. This recipe for Red Velvet Cupcakes had beets in it rather than red food coloring and was the one recipe that made me really want my own copy of this cookbook.

    I love cookbooks. This one has many recipes that I already cook but there are some variations that I would like to try. The Blue Bloods family meals are just about my favorite thing on television. I love the discussions, the disagreements, the always having each others back of the family. These recipes are staples, the backbone of your cooking repertoire and would be perfect for family gatherings of any type. One of the things they add to many recipes are options for making sandwiches that you c I love cookbooks.

    I thought this was a pretty good cook book. It is perfect for someone who wants a range of recipes. There are plenty of simple things that most people who cook already know how to make (such as meatloaf) but they also have "fancier" things in here too you might not have ever tried before, or maybe you would like to try their variant for a food you like. I also enjoyed the commentary for each recipe and it was interesting to read how some of the meals were invented. Disclaimer: I received the book I thought this was a pretty good cook book.

    Great quality...photos, stories, cooking tips, and ideas of setting the table for your family. However, you will be in the kitchen for some time (which is cool if you don't work 50+ hours a week). I will certainly added a few of these meals for birthdays and other special occasions.

    This will become a staple on your for your go-to cookbooks. Just like the Sunday dinners on the show, you'll be able to easily make your own Reagan feast. Recipes are accurate and easy to follow.

    So far, so good! We've tried their pot roast. It's a very tasty version of the recipe. If the next recipe is as good, I'll move the rating to 5 stars. So far, so good!

    good basic cookbook - lots of simple stuff that appeals to my teen. One exciting find - bacon almond butter toasts for a super easy HdO. Didn't Bridget date Bobby Flay? good basic cookbook - lots of simple stuff that appeals to my teen. One exciting find - bacon almond butter toasts for a super easy HdO.

    Over 100 recipes (of mostly traditional American and Irish American Food) with accompanying photographic illustrations and some brief background info and anecdotes about the stars of the TV show. Probably of interest only to diehard fans of the show.
