My Cookbooks

The greatest thrill of my life is to be welcomed into your kitchens by way of my recipes. I love seeing your photos and fielding your questions too so please tag #dinneruncomplicated or #uncomplicatedcookbook.

An Uncomplicated Holiday is a curated collection of my eight best traditional, uncomplicated holiday recipes. Designed to make this year's feast the best (and easiest) one ever, it's also packed full of simple swaps to accommodate food allergies and diet choices, tons of bonus recipes (including my famous Turkey Pot Pie) so that you'll even have amazing leftovers, the work-back schedule that lets you prep a classic holiday dinner over three days (in bite-size chunks) and then effortlessly bring it all together.

 

You also get an incredible vegetarian main course (that's so good everyone will want some), and my best entertaining secrets (from decades of hosting) so that every party you host is stress-free and joyful. Click here to check it out.

 

Dinner, Uncomplicated: Fixing a Delicious Meal Every Night of the Week is focused on making dinner easier, faster and less stressful. It’s a deep-dive into how–and why–making dinner can be the highlight of your day.

 

These 90 recipes follow my uncomplicated philosophy: Easy to shop for (and they don’t break the bank!) easy to prep (no fancy skills or equipment required) and easy to clean up (does anyone actually like doing dishes??). Best of all they are incredibly delicious–like everyone wants the recipe delicious!

 

My first book*, Uncomplicated: Taking the Stress Out of Home Cooking, set out to prove that cooking doesn’t have to be difficult to be delicious. *IMPORTANT NOTE: As of 2021, this book is out of print. I am heartbroken; but this was the publisher's decision. There are still a few individual copies in some independent bookstores. 

Every one of my recipes is tested using a rigorous process so you know it will work just as it should. Plus I share how to skip or combine steps, to invite the kids in, to host a dinner party without anxiety, and to remember that food should bring joy.
