I have professional crushes–and they’re always women. Leave the romantic crushes for the men. Professional crushes are women who do what I do, or something I wish I did, in a way that I find so tantalizing that I wish I did it too. Does that make sense? Jessica Seinfeld is one of my professional crushes. And I don’t have many. I’m not that kind of girl.
I was somewhat less interested in Jessica’s first book, Deceptively Delicious, in which she hid fruit and veggie purées in home cooked kids’ food, because I don’t have kids. But her second book, Double Delicious, is for me. Jessica writes healthed-up versions of comfort foods like Macaroni and Cheese, Black Bean Burgers, Shrimp Dumplings, and Sweet and Sour Meatballs. All using whole grains, lots of fruit and vegetables, and low fat dairy here and there. Her children, famed New York nutritionist Joy Bauer, and hilarious comedian husband Jerry all dot the book with their opinions on the different dishes. It’s great…like her website Do It Delicious, where she and friend Ally Wentworth make super easy grown up dishes for anyone who thinks they can’t cook.
I have a copy of the book! Just leave a comment with your favorite childhood comfort food. If you have come up with any ways to make it healthy, leave that too! I’ll choose a comment at random in a week, and the book is yours. Good luck!
