Jessica Seinfeld is concocting new cookbooks that will satisfy your desire for something delicious — and although Jerry Seinfeld is her husband, there’s nothing sarcastic about her concoctions, reported ABC News.
Thus far, Jessica has authored three cookbooks that explore the art of succeeding in the kitchen. One, called Deceptively Delicious, helped parents hide good-for-you ingredients such as veggies in food to persuade children to eat their vitamins without protest.
The other was targeted at those who feel that their attempts at cooking inevitably lead to disasters, such as overcooked okra and puckered pancakes, aptly titled The Can’t Cook Book: Recipes for the Absolutely Terrified.
Now, Jessica is penning another cookbook as well as a book of observations and essays. Both will be published by Ballantine Books.
However, Jessica’s career as an author has not been without controversy. She previously fought and won when another author, Missy Chase Lapine, claimed that Seinfeld’s Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food involved plagiarism, reported CNN.
Lapine authored The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals. However, after a bitter battle, Jessica was left unscathed.
The Sneaky Chef book came out six months prior to Deceptively Delicious. Lapine argued that Seinfeld’s cookbook liberally helped itself to her trademark and copyright, but the judge concluded that Jessica’s concoctions was sufficiently different.
As for the motivation to create her cookbook encouraging parents to make healthy food, Jessica is the mom of three children herself, reported Do It Delicious.
The key to her recipes lies in pureeing the vegetables so that they can’t be seen or tasted. For example, she puts cauliflower in macaroni and cheese, and spinach in brownies. In addition, Jessica offers suggestions for taking purchased store foods and doctoring them up to make them healthier.
As for her other book, Recipes for the Absolutely Terrified, those who find most cooking Web sites and recipe books overwhelming can feel relaxed and even have fun learning to cook.
“Our focus is to give you the simplest (yet most delicious) meals that any beginner can tackle with ease. No surprises … except for your own success!” says Jessica.
As for the future of cookbooks catering to kids? As the Inqusitr reported, although Dr. Seuss died in 1991, the legacy of his love for Green Eggs And Ham lives on as everyone from hockey players to toddlers celebrate his birthday each year.
