Feeding Your Monday Blues


Published:

It's Monday. You couldn't possibly be crabby, right? Well, if you are—or if you're regularly cooking for a picky eater who makes every day just a tad crabby—this cookbook may help: The Crabby Cook Cookbook features "135 almost-effortless recipes plus survival tips." This includes Richard Gere's Pot Pie (you know you're intrigued!), Bruschetta with Somebody-Else's-Garden Tomatoes, and Home Run Chicken (because we all need that go-to dish).

Ruth Reichl even put her stamp of approval on the cover: "This book is too much fun. You stand in the kitchen laughing when you should be cooking. These recipes aren't just easy, they're really good. I'll gladly eat at Jessica Harper's house any night of the week."

Tell us about your favorite easy, go-to meal in the comments section below and one randomly selected winner will get this copy.
