The bestselling author and Emmy Award-winning cohost of ABC’s The Chew takes the intimidation out of cooking and shows you how to savor life fully every day with this gorgeous cookbook featuring more than 125 easy, healthy, and delicious timesaving recipes.

For many people, especially those who aren’t quite at home in the kitchen, the idea of cooking a homemade meal can be terrifying, uninspiring, or just feel like a chore. In The Happy Cook, Daphne Oz makes cooking fun and relaxing, and shows anyone—newbie or seasoned expert—how to celebrate every day with delicious meals that are as easy to create as they are to enjoy.

Like cooking with a good friend and a glass of wine, The Happy Cook is filled with friendly advice, expert tips, inspiring ideas, and best of all, 125 simple yet fabulous recipes, all using just a handful of ingredients, that will transform the most nervous or reluctant novice into a happy, confident home cook.

Here are recipes for the whole day and the whole week, from Saturday dinner parties to quick-and-easy weeknight leftovers. With The Happy Cook, eating well is a breeze with delights such as:

  • Breakfast—Crispy-Crunchy Honey-Thyme Granola, Chocolate Almond Breakfast Bars, and Coconut-Mango Pancakes
  • Lunch—Kale and Plum Salad with Miso Vinaigrette, Warm Spring Pea Soup, Seared Garlic-Lime Shrimp Banh Mi and Philly Cheesesteak Quesadillas
  • Dinner—Truffle Salt Roast Chicken with Lentils and Squash, Cashew Soba Noodles with Fried Shallots, Sea Bass Roasted Over Citrus, and Apricot-Rosemary Glazed Lamb Chops
  • Dessert—"Outlaw" Carrot Cake with Brown Sugar Buttercream, Better Brownies, Sour Apple Juice Pops, and Nutty Banana "Ice Cream"

The Happy Cook is all about real-life application—and real-life success. Celebrate every occasion and every meal with mouthwatering, vibrant, easy food. It's not about perfection, as Daphne makes clear. It’s about the confidence to get into the kitchen, have fun, and become a happy cook!

I don't know why Daphne Oz doesn't include nutritional information in her books. Her mother Lisa Oz doesn't either. Anyone watching calories, fat and salt needs this information. I guess they figure their recipes are healthy, but there is always a consequence when too much fat or salt is used by accident. I looked over this book at a Barnes and Noble store but didn't buy it because of this problem.

Just ordered a copy of this cookbook for my sister who is just starting out in a new city and she can't just borrow my cookbooks anymore. She loves the Chew and she loves Daphne, so it was a no-brainer to send her this book. I have my own copy and I love the pictures and the recipes. The first thing I made were the Coconut Mango Pancakes. They were just as good as the recipe for Pound Cake French Toast in another cookbook called Simple, Healthy and Delicious. Who knew? I'd also recommend Chef Jai Scovers' "Conquer Your Kitchen," she also wrote "Simple, Healthy and Delicious." "Conquer Your Kitchen" is a cookbook reference guide. I don't think I have cooked a meal without it since I got it. It even made making pasta that much easier. It is just that good. Buy it or borrow it, but get it. Like her cookbook," Conquer Your Kitchen" is designed to save you time and money in the kitchen.
