My Cookbook

There is no need to try purchasing my cookbook, which is likely out of print by now. I am posting almost all of the recipes from the book here on the website. It was always a dream of mine to publish a cookbook.  When it finally came out in 2006 I donated 100% of my profits to City of Hope for breast cancer research. I just wanted to share my recipes. In 2013, the publisher, John Wiley & Sons, was kind enough to let me share all of the recipes in the book here on my website. But it’s been over ten years and during that time I have become a better, more efficient cook. I make those same recipes but today they are simpler and easier. So there is no need to purchase the book. All of the best recipes from the book are here – exactly the way I make them today.

If you’re curious, the book is available as a free download. Just click here.

    Can I substitute ground chicken for ground beef in your meatloaf recipe?

    I was just reading through your cookbook, and wanted to tell you I LOVE the note at the beginning about your photography! I love the notes about the props, lighting, and “table cloths”. Everything you write is so real and charming. I read through every photo caption in the book. My favorite is the Beets in the spider bowl! Love the web reflection on the tablecloth! I also liked the phrase “cacophony of colors” on the Rainbow Fried Rice. And the rainbow of plates for the parsnip Spice Cake is so creative! Beautiful! I enjoyed reading your photography notes very much. Do you still do all your own photography? Would love to read a blog post about how your photo style has evolved over the years.

    Hi Jenny. I wanted to thank you for the free download of your cookbook, although I gladly would have paid for it in gratitude for the awesome recipes and videos I’ve been able to enjoy here and on YT. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your love of cooking. Your yellow cake, ribs, and bread recipes have been enjoyed many times over by my household.

    Also, in case it helps someone else, I was unable to download the cookbook (I’m on a laptop) using Firefox, Chrome, or Opera but was able to download when I switched to the Internet Explorer web browser.

      Thank you, this is good to know. It may be the lap top because I tested it on my desktop and it worked using Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.

    Question
    Jenny, what internal temp do you use for doneness in whole wheat bread?
    Just took it out of the oven and can hardly wait to slice. How long should I Wait?
    Thanks, Dottie

    I came across your meatloaf recipe which sounds great and will make for my husband. Listening to you, I liked your presentation and pleasant personality. Much to my surprise, when I went to read about you, it was like finding an old friend. I remember watching your show and always enjoying it. So nice to see that you are still well and have such a good heart to donate your recipe book profits. I will be back to use many of your recipes. Know that I am one who immensely enjoyed your show – God bless you🤗
