You don’t have to know how to cook, you just have to love to eat.
Delish.com speaks to food lovers who don’t fancy themselves chefs—and they do it through helpful, shareable recipes that are as fun to watch as they are to make. Now, they’ve crammed all of that insanity and entertainment into their first-ever cookbook. Inside, you’ll find more than 275 recipes and ideas that are meant to be devoured, not perfected—including Quesadilla Cake, Chicken Fried Cauliflower, and Cookie Dough Cheesecake—plus their best tips, tricks, and indispensable advice.
This entertaining cookbook debut by the eponymous food media company celebrates food creativity and simplicity for people who " to eat more than to cook." The book offers dozens of helpful photographs, as well as plenty of useful tips ("Whack Hack! Toast your own hard taco shell"). Classic food staples are reimagined to become ultimate party foods: grilled cheese, for example, is transformed into grilled cheese dippers served with a tomato soup dip, sloppy joes become stuffing for potato skins, and steak frites are recreated into bite-size pieces skewered with toothpicks. The bulk of recipes include carb-heavy delights, such as garlicky shrimp alfredo bake with penne and a bold Tex-Mex dinner of tequila lime chicken tacos, but the editors make sure to suggest tasty healthy alternatives like parmesan garlic carrot fries. Readers will be particularly impressed with the book's creative, sweeter options, namely Shark Attack Jell-o Shots, a Harry Potter inspired butter beer pie, and Boston cream pancakes. With recurring phrases in recipe introductions like "WTF," "#brunchgoals," and "OG Delish," and adorned with quotes from movies like Home Alone, Elf, and Mean Girls, this book is aimed at the millennial audience, but cooks of all ages will undoubtedly be inspired.
