Reviews

Seinfeld, mother of three and wife of comedian Jerry, devised an elegant plan: puree fruits and vegetables and incorporate them into kid friendly dishes like Mac & Cheese (cauliflower or beans); Chicken Nuggets (broccoli); Chocolate Cake (beets). The recipes blend nutrition into a meal and harmony into mealtime. Seinfeld writes that mealtime should be about "happiness and conversation" not about "power struggles and strife," and her plan diminishes nagging. Although her program is easy, Seinfeld is honest about the need for shortcuts and offers some good ones. The nutritional breakdown of each vegetable/fruit featured in the recipes is valuable. While some parts smack of self-promotion (she encourages parents to share her recipes with other parents), Seinfeld does supplement her recipes with sound tips for learning to say no to junk when kids ask, encouraging conversation, getting children to participate in prep and cleaning, and developing age-appropriate eating habits.

"Just when you'd abandoned all hope of ever convincing your kids to eat their carrots, here comes Jessica Seinfeld." -- Redbook Magazine
"Seinfeld's recipes were written with determined simplicity." -- Cookie magazine
"An elegant plan.... The recipes blend nutrition into a meal and harmony into mealtime." -- Publishers Weekly

No, daddy dudes, it's not all about you-it's also about the kids you feed, and who better to tell you what to do than the wife of millionaire comedian Jerry Seinfeld? Mrs. Seinfeld relies on purees of vegetables and fruits to make up a base or a nutritional additive in her recipes (ergo, the "deceptively delicious" factor of the title). Pureed carrot provides fiber and beta carotene; beet puree in the breading of homemade chicken nuggets adds antioxidants, potassium, and folic acid. Seinfeld's easy, homespun style combines well with recipes that are, generally, pretty easy (e.g., Grilled Cheese with Sweet Potato Puree). One huge dude factor and a plus: the book is spiral bound, which makes it easy to flip open on the kitchen counter. In closing, I only have one question: With all that money, why is our authoress cooking? Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
