REVIEW: Jessica Seinfeld's The Can't Cook Book




















“Mmm—it’s good.” “Who ever seasoned this is amazing!” were the reports I got from Our Gluten Free Family on Jessica’s Seinfeld’s chicken wings from her new cookbook, The Can’t Cook Book.

The cookbook is an impressive departure from her first cookbook, Deceptively Delicious. Jessica Seinfeld, most certainly can cook—and teach others how to cook. The book is filled with simple, surprisingly healthy, easy recipes for busy families (and people) who want to get dinner on the table.

This is a great present for...
  • anyone who likes chicken wings!
  • families with kids
  • young adults who are starting out on their own
  • anyone who can or can’t cook—which basically means everyone!
Unlike her first book, the cookbook is actually full of naturally gluten recipes. This is mostly because so many of the recipes are made from whole food ingredients that are fresh and expertly seasoned.

Below I have listed some of the naturally gluten free recipes in the cookbook—just so everyone will know how gluten-free friendly The Can’t Cook Book is. 

There are other recipes (I just got tired of listing them) and also a bunch of pasta recipes which can easily be adapted to be gluten free by using rice or corn pasta.

I regret not buying more signed copies for friends and family when I met Jessica at a book signing last week--and not getting a picture with her that I could post. But here is a photo of her signed copy to me.

To order your own a copy (or a few copies!) go to The Can't Cook Book on Amazon.



And--a picture of the chicken wings I made tonight...

Thanks for the great review. I'm not sure I would have been interested in the book but your review has given me a better understanding and I am looking forward to reading it now.
