    Fall is just around the corner, which is great news for everyone who loves to cook but couldn’t bear to turn their stoves on during those off-the-charts hot days of summer. We’ve rounded up some of the best new cookbook releases to offer up some much-needed inspiration to stop using your oven for storage and dust off the Instant Pot you bought last December. So get ready to fill your house with yummy smells like braised pork, banana bread, lemony turmeric tea cake, and—of course—pumpkin-spice everything.

    The Pioneer Woman Cooks: The New Frontier: 112 Fantastic Favorites for Everyday Eating, by Ree Drummond
    Bestselling author, Food Network star, busy businesswoman, and butter-loving country gal, Ree Drummond—better known as The Pioneer Woman—has made some time in her crazy schedule to show us just how her cooking has evolved as life on the ranch with her husband and kids continues to change. Packed with 112 all-new recipes, this new cookbook has an awesome mix of traditional and new flavors with hearty comfort food, lighter (but still flavorful!) low-carb recipes, family-friendly dishes, and more. We can’t wait to try out the Instant Pot Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal that just screams “FALL!” for breakfast, Cauliflower Fried Rice to bring for lunch at the office, and Blueberry Ricotta Crostini for next time we want to impress dinner guests.

    Joy of Cooking: 2019 Edition Fully Revised and Updated, by Irma S. Rombauer, Marion Rombauer Becker, Ethan Becker, John Becker, and Megan Scott
    Widely considered the most popular American cookbook, Irma Rombauer’s cooking bible has been continuously in print since 1931. And if your well-worn copy is in tatters, singed from sitting too close to the stove and splattered with bits of dough, oil, and sauces from recipes gone by, you’re in luck! This brand-new edition has been fully revised and expanded by Irma’s great-grandson John Becker and his wife, Megan Scott, retaining the charm and tradition of the original while updating techniques and ingredients and including more than 600 new recipes. Favorites like Banana Bread Cockaigne and Southern Corn Bread remain, while delectable Chana Masala and Beef Rendang join their ranks. And we can’t wait to dig into some of the new veggie recipes like Spicy Chickpea Soup and Caramelized Tamarind Tempeh.

    Rachael Ray 50: Memories and Meals from a Sweet and Savory Life, by Rachael Ray
    In her latest release, which is part memoir and part cookbook, Rachael Ray reflects on how her passion for food formed over the course of the last 50 years. The popular self-taught chef fills her new book with the same energy and joy she infuses into all her culinary endeavors with 25 essays capturing Rachael’s favorite memories and moments and 125 yummy recipes—the ones Rachael holds near and dear to heart and makes in her own home. Beautiful food images, personal photos, and illustrations drawn by Rachael herself round out this inspiring new volume and make it feel like a scrapbook of Rachael’s sweet and savory life so far.

    The Whole30 Friends & Family: 150 Recipes for Every Social Occasion, by Melissa Hartwig Urban
    Tackling Whole30 can be a daunting proposition, especially when there are so many occasions that might tempt you to break your diet—holidays, birthdays, baby showers, dinner parties, brunches and more. For those not in the know, Whole30 is basically a big elimination diet in which you avoid sugar, alcohol, legumes, grains, dairy, and other foods for 30 days to give your body a full reset. But with the help of this new cookbook from Melissa Hartwig Urban, the CEO and founder of Whole30, it can not only be a lot easier but also super-delicious. So whether you’re the host of the next event or just contributing a dish, this cookbook is filled with fun dips, appetizers, entrees, sides, drinks, and more—all Whole30 approved!

    Nothing Fancy: Unfussy Food for Having People Over, by Alison Roman
    Having people over to your house to share some food doesn’t have to be a huge ordeal that involves polishing silver and learning how to sous-vide something (or learning what exactly “sous-vide” means). And it can still be amazing without all the fancy food that requires you to be in the kitchen all day. That’s exactly what Alison Roman, author of Dining In and New York Times columnist, wants people to see with her new cookbook, which is filled with all-new, easy-to-execute recipes for a last-minute weeknight dinner with a coworker or a weekend dinner party with 15 people from the office. So get ready for some fun with DIY martini bars, pots of coconut-braised chicken and chickpeas, pans of lemony turmeric tea cake, and more.

    The Plant Paradox Family Cookbook: 80 One-Pot Recipes to Nourish Your Family Using Your Instant Pot, Slow Cooker, or Sheet Pan, by Steven R. Gundry
    In his groundbreaking 2017 book, The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry educated us about the hidden danger lurking in many people’s diets—a highly toxic, plant-based protein called lectin. But a lot of The Plant Paradox converts were left wondering, “How can I keep this in mind when cooking for my whole family—especially my kids?” Dr. Gundry’s answer to that is his latest release, which reveals the ways in which the program is not only safe for the whole family but is also a great way to set up kids for a lifetime of healthy eating. The new cookbook offers up more than 80 recipes that are a breeze to make thanks to using an Instant Pot, slow cooker, or just a sheet pan.

    Spring Clean Your Diet with These Healthy Yet Decadent Cookbooks 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/do/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Whose idea was it to start all those New Year’s Resolutions in January and February? It’s all very well to decide to turn over a healthier leaf for the new year, but do you know what happens to leaves in winter? They die. Have you looked outside? The weather is sad enough without turning your kitchen into a pathetic, empty shell of its former self. But short of moving the New Year to May, is there anything to be done? Can we, in fact, have our cake and eat it too?

    Enter the healthy-decadents, those rare cookbooks promising healthy ingredients without stealing your will to live. These six cookbooks will bring color back to your kitchen and flavor back to your table–and hopefully will see you through to spring.

    Chez Panisse Cooking, by Paul Bertolli, with Alice Waters
    Chez Panisse Cooking is a classic for a reason. Since its publication in the 1980’s, it’s influenced an entire generation of healthy cooking and continues to demonstrate that health and luxury are not mutually exclusive. Drawn from the kitchens of Chez Panisse, the famous restaurant in Berkeley, California, the recipes here will give you that fine dining feeling. Sign me up for the Seckel Pears Poached in Red Wine with Burnt Caramel.

    Plenty: Vibrant Vegetable Recipes from London’s Ottolenghi, by Yotam Ottolenghi
    This is the cookbook that turned Yotam Ottolenghi into a culinary mega-sensation. Built on innovative vegetarian recipes with a French/Mediterranean twist, Plenty is a beautifully photographed extravaganza of vegetable recipes you’ll actually want to eat. The emphasis here is on the vegetables themselves, so it’s perfect for anyone looking for an excuse to wander picturesquely through their local farmer’s market.

    The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, by Deborah Madison
    The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone was my first introduction to vegetarian cooking, and I must admit my hopes were not high. That all changed with the first recipe—I believe it was a gratin—when I realized vegetables had never tasted so good. Madison is the queen of vegetables for a reason: her approach is thorough, flavor comes before everything, and she’s not afraid of experimentation. A must-have for anyone who insists their health food must also taste good.

    Moosewood Restaurant New Classics: 350 Recipes for Homestyle Favorites and Everyday Feasts, by the Moosewood Collective
    The Moosewood Restaurant is a charming vegetarian restaurant in Ithaca New York, famed for its cooking and its cookbooks. New Classics is an ideal cookbook for someone just getting into the healthy cooking thing—it’s filled with easy, low-key recipes that are high on taste and comfort. My personal favorite is the Instant Tamale Pie, otherwise known as Moosewood’s answer to the Super Bowl Half-Time problem. This is pure deliciousness in a baking dish and you need it in your life immediately.

    Fresh Italian Cooking for the New Generation: 100 Full-Flavored Vegetarian Dishes That Prove You Can Stay Slim While Eating Pasta and Bread, by Alexandra Caspero
    Obviously this list would not complete without some Italian food. Fresh Italian Cooking is a vegetarian take on some of your favorite comfort dishes, but instead of cutting out all the tasty parts (like the pasta), Caspero focuses on adding more vegetables and making them sing. Standout recipes include Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Bow Ties and Zucchini Pasta with Bolognese Sauce.

    The Joy of Vegan Baking: The Compassionate Cooks’ Traditional Treats and Sinful Sweets, by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
    At last, it’s time for dessert! And The Joy of Vegan Baking is here to make sure that being healthy doesn’t mean sacrificing the best part of your meal. Popular with vegans and omnivores alike, this cookbook is more than just a collection of recipes—it’s also an excellent introduction to the concepts behind vegan baking. Now it you’ll excuse me, I’m pretty sure the Strawberry Pie with Chocolate Chunks has my name on it.

    Most of the United States is under a thick layer of snow (even this author, in supposedly sunny Southern California, has had to suffer through interminable weeks of rain), which means two things: (1) if we want to get our springtime freshness, we’ll need to get it in food form because it’s not coming from the weather; and (2) we’re desperately in need of some comfort food. Combine freshness and comfort and you’ll find one of this year’s hottest wellness trends: the bowl. Whether it’s superfoods, vegetarian, or whole-grain, one of these five cookbooks stands ready to inject health, comfort, and a little bit of springtime into your new year.

    Nourishing Superfood Bowls: 75 Healthy and Delicious Gluten-Free Meals to Fuel Your Day, by Lindsay Cotter
    This gluten-free cookbook is packed with healthy, easy, comfort-food type recipes. I’m personally most intrigued by the Nacho Salad Bowl because hello, obviously, but there are recipes to suit every taste, ranging from breakfast to dinner and from paleo to vegan. Nourishing Superfood Bowls is a great all-in-one resource, with 75 recipes that will help you clean up your diet without putting in hours in the kitchen or ignoring your tastebuds.

    The Berkeley Bowl Cookbook: Recipes Inspired by the Extraordinary Produce of California’s Most Iconic Market, by Laura McLively
    This is a cutie: a bowl cookbook focusing on ingredients drawn from the famous Berkeley Bowl Market. With beautiful photographs and innovative recipes, The Berkeley Bowl Cookbook is will enliven your cookbook shelf and your kitchen with recipes like Green Garlic Soup with Lemon Cardamom Yogurt and Stuffed Indian Eggplant. An adventure in wellness trend form, this is the kind of book to help shake off the winter blues.

    Bowl: Vegetarian Recipes for Ramen, Pho, Bibimbap, Dumplings, and Other One-Dish Meals, by Lukas Volger
    Bowl sets itself an ambitious task—vegetarian ramen—and it pays off in this collection of recipes bowl-lovers and vegetarian cooks alike should consider adding to their collections. From ramen, author Lukas Volger moves to pho, dumplings, laksas, burrito bowls, and bibimbap, creating an array of fresh, innovative recipes like Vegetarian Curry Laksa, Spicy Carrot Dumplings, and even a Ratatouille Polenta. A nourishing, comforting way to stave off the cold and feel healthy in the process.

    The Sprouted Kitchen Bowl and Spoon: Simple and Inspired Whole Foods Recipes to Savor and Share, by Sara Forte
    This is the second cookbook from Sara Forte of Sprouted Kitchen, again featuring Forte’s imaginative approach to healthy cooking. Focusing on whole foods, comfort, and simplicity, The Sprouted Kitchen Bowl and Spoon is a cookbook that loves food in all its glory—from the sweetness of roasted pears to the color of a beautiful eggplant. With delicious recipes ranging from breakfast (the Baked Eggs with Barely Creamed Greens and Mustardy Bread Crumbs sounds particularly heavenly) to dessert, there’s more than enough here to keep you inspired through the year.

    Bowls of Plenty: Recipes for Healthy and Delicious Whole-Grain Meals, by Carolynn Carreno
    Carolynn Carreno comes by her bowl credentials honestly: she grew up with a “pseudo-hippie mother” in California and has been cooking whole-grain bowls for fifteen years, as a way to counter-balance the rich foods she ate as a food writer. Bowls of Plenty contains over 75 recipes combining the deliciousness of that gourmet life with the healthiness of the whole-grain bowl, with an emphasis on creative ingredients and an aim to inspire further experimentation at home. Perfect for those looking to hone their healthy cooking skills.

    Have you tried your hand at cooking a healthy bowl at home?

    4 New Books from Women You Want To Be Friends With 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/do/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    Imagine this: you’re invited to a party planned by Reese Witherspoon, in immaculate Southern fashion. Chrissy Teigen brings the food. Busy Philipps brings the laughs, and Eva Chen tells you exactly what color lipstick to wear for your complexion and lets you try on her gorgeous designer heels. Are you imagining? Then you’ve got the essence of this fall’s packed slate of releases from the cool girls of pop culture—four books promising to entertain and inspire while also teaching you how to throw an amazing party of your own.

    Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love, and Baking Biscuits, by Reese Witherspoon
    Inspired by her childhood in the South and by her grandmother Dorothea, this book is a sort of road map of Witherspoon’s favorite things. From fried chicken recipes to tips on entertaining in a BIG way, Whiskey in a Teacup shares little tips to make life more special. Not the entertaining type? It also includes a “fail-proof” guide to getting the perfect Reese Witherspoon hair.

    Cravings: Hungry for More, by Chrissy Teigen
    I loved Cravings, Teigen’s first cookbook. It’s funny and well designed, and the recipes are both interesting and delicious. I also just don’t understand why she won’t magically appear in my kitchen and gossip with me while we cook together. But it seems the closest I’ll get is her sequel cookbook, Cravings: Hungry for More, and it’s a pretty good substitute: it focuses on the recipes she has been relying on since becoming a mom, with more of the great commentary that made Cravings such a delight.

    This Will Only Hurt a Little, by Busy Philipps
    There are a lot of places Busy Philipps might have made you laugh. To name a few: Freaks and Geeks, Cougartown, or Instagram, where she’s something of a sensation. Her autobiography, This Will Only Hurt a Little, will be another one. Tracing her life from Scottsdale, Arizona, to motherhood and Instagram, Philipps’ bracingly honest book takes the reader on a funny, occasionally painful, and ultimately inspirational journey.

    Juno Valentine and the Magical Shoes, by Eva Chen, illustrated by Derek Desierto
    Juno Valentine and the Magical Shoes has perhaps the most adorable premise of all time. Juno Valentine is a little girl who stumbles into an amazing closet, filled with the shoes of amazing women throughout time—think Cleopatra and Serena Williams—that unlock a series of amazing adventures. Written by Eva Chen, former editor-in-chief of Lucky and very fashionable cool girl, this delightful little book is a great gift for a child in your life…or just for yourself.

    The warm days are finally settling in, beckoning worker bees outdoors to enjoy the sun. Incorporating summer flavors into recipes is one of the most enjoyable aspects of this popular season, with fruits, herbs, and vegetables growing in abundance. As good meals are even better when accompanied by tasty drinks, these five books prove to be excellent guides on how to incorporate summer zest into delicious cocktails. Cheers.

    Spritz: Italy’s Most Iconic Aperitivo Cocktail, with Recipes, by Talia Baiocchi and Leslie Pariseau
    Founders of the all-things-cocktails publication, Punch, Talia Baiocchi and Leslie Pariseau bring readers and imbibers a little summer sizzle in their book, Spritz. In Italy, the Spritz is a coveted after work pick-me-up, with a cornucopia of colorful variations. Included in these pages are classic recipes, like the Negroni Sbagliato or the White Spritz. Given the international popularity of the cocktail, mixologists contributed their favorite creations, like the Cold in the Shadows by Pamela Wiznitzer, or the Rome with a View by Tunnel Vision by Alex Day. The cover of this book recalls vintage Italian posters, making it not just a wealth of knowledge but an appealing aesthetic addition to any end table or bookshelf.

    The One-Bottle Cocktail: More than 80 Recipes with Fresh Ingredients and a Single Spirit, by Maggie Hoffman
    Move over, one-pot recipes, and make space for the one-bottle cocktail! All readers need is a single bottle of booze, a few creative ingredients, and this book—then they are good to go. With a conversational tone that evokes the essence of a delightful soiree with old friends, the author presents recipes that are simple enough for newbies trying to recreate fancy drinks at home, while at the same time creative enough for cocktail aficionados to be able to find something new. Feel refreshed in the dog days of summer with a vodka-based Blackberry Cucumber Mule, a citrus and tequila packed Tamarindo Aguas Frescas, and a peach and rum delight aptly called Stones and Leaves.

    Forager’s Cocktails: Botanical Mixology with Fresh, Natural Ingredients, by Amy Zavatto
    Remember being a kid and scrounging around in nature for inspiration? Now imagine doing that as an adult and finding garden ingredients for your favorite drink. Luckily, New York-based food writer, Amy Zavatto, who covers wine, cocktails, and everything in between, shares recipes for those who don’t have time to play outdoors. In her book, Forager’s Cocktails: Botanical Mixology with Fresh, Natural Ingredients, Zavatto imparts her expertise on how to incorporate fresh herbs and foraged fruit into an inebriating glass. The chapters are broken up by season, and summer beverages include crisp takes on classics, like an Orchard Old Fashioned, a Wild Mint Mojito, or a Wild Strawberry Margarita. Fans of Zavatto’s writing should not miss her newest book, Prosecco Made Me Do It.

    The Poptail Manual: Over 90 Delicious Frozen Cocktails, by Kathy Kordalis
    Hot summer days recall nostalgic memories of running around in the sun, getting overheated, then cooling off when your friend’s mom pulled out an assortment of icy, fruity, popsicles. The cold consistency of the flavored, icy shards were a perfect pairing with the hot weather. Grown ups can enjoy this summer memory in a more elegant, libatious fashion by making their own cocktails into popsicles—adorably called “poptails.” The Poptail Manual: Over 90 Delicious Frozen Cocktails is a beautifully illustrated book by Kathy Kordalis, and includes 90 plus recipes for making fun frozen drinks. Poptails like the Olive Martini or the Kamikaze give an added surprise of hiding garnishes in the middle of the ice!

    Eat Your Drink: Culinary Cocktails, by Matthew Biancaniello
    A leader of the “garden-to-glass” movement, Matthew Biancaniello is known in the cocktail world for creating visually stunning and olfactory titillating drinks. In his book, Eat Your Drink: Culinary Cocktails, the infinitely creative mixologist shares his gift for creating memorable aperitifs. With creations that look like a bouquet of colorful flowers or an impressionist still-life painting, the drinks are intoxicatingly beautiful. Keeping with the theme of keeping drinking edible, the chapters are broken up by coursesa—each one with an array of appetizing drinks: start the feast with a Blood Orange Cheese & Cracker, dive into the first course with a Bubbly Mary, enjoy Shiitake as the main course, and complete the meal with a Candy Cap Mushroom Bourbon Ice Cream.

    What are your favorite summer cocktails?
