Read full description of the books:
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Deceptively Delicious, an essential collection of more than 100 simple recipes that will transform even the most kitchenphobic “Can’t Cooks” into “Can Cooks.”
Are you smart enough to dodge a telemarketer yet clueless as to how to chop a clove of garlic? Are you clever enough to forward an e-mail but don’t know the difference between broiling and baking? Ingenious enough to operate a blow-dryer but not sure how to use your blender? If you are basically competent, then Jessica Seinfeld’s The Can’t Cook Book is for you.
If you find cooking scary or stressful or just boring, Jessica has a calm, confidence-building approach to cooking, even for those who’ve never followed a recipe or used an oven. Jessica shows you how to prepare deliciously simple food—from Caesar salad, rice pilaf, and roasted asparagus to lemon salmon, roast chicken, and flourless fudge cake. At the beginning of each dish, she explains up front what the challenge will be, and then shows you exactly how to overcome any hurdles in easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions.
Designed to put the nervous cook at ease, The Can’t Cook Book is perfect for anyone who wants to gain confidence in the kitchen—and, who knows, maybe even master a meal or two.

Read information about the authorJessica Seinfeld (nee Nina Danielle Sklar) is the wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld and author of a cookbook for preparing food for children. She graduated from the University of Vermont, and worked in public relations for Golden Books Entertainment, as well as for Tommy Hilfiger.
In 2007, Seinfeld published the cookbook Deceptively Delicious, which contains strategies and recipes for making healthy food appealing to young children. She was featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and the book reached Number 1 on Amazon.com, Number 2 on the USA Today best-seller list, and Number 1 on the The New York Times Advice, How-To and Miscellaneous list. The book, however, stirred controversy when it was alleged that more than a dozen of the same recipes in Seinfeld's book appeared in another author's cookbook, The Sneaky Chef by Missy Chase Lapine, published earlier that year. The unusual combinations that appear in Lapine's recipes — such as spinach in brownies, avocado in chocolate pudding, and sweet potato in grilled cheese sandwiches — also appear in Seinfeld's book. Lapine had twice unsuccessfully shopped her manuscript to Seinfeld's publisher (HarperCollins) only months before it chose to publish Seinfeld's instead.
In response to the accusations, Seinfeld told The New York Times: "I don’t need to copy someone’s idea. I’ve got enough going on in my life." Her husband, in an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman, called Lapine a "wacko" and said his wife was being "accused of a Watergate-style break-in."
On January 7, 2008, Missy Chase Lapine, author of The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids' Favorite Meals sued Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld for defamation, plagiarism, or copyright and trademark infringement in the Manhattan, U.S. District Court. Richard Menaker, the Seinfelds' counsel, accused Lapine of seeking publicity on Seinfeld's book sales.
