Jessica Seinfeld Wants to Help You Cook Dinner

Jessica Seinfeld

Jessica Seinfeld and Oprah

Jessica Seinfeld, wife of Jerry Seinfeld, made a name for herself in her own right as the author of “Deceptively Delicious.”

Now she’s got a new book, “Double Delicious! Good, Simple Food for Busy, Complicated Lives” and she appeared on “The Oprah Show” today to promote it.

The focus of the first book seemed to be all about hiding vegetables and other healthy things in sweet treats so kids would eat them. I happen to think that’s a really bad idea. Even my 8-year-old daughter Jesse said so the other day when the subject came up.

“If you hide broccoli in brownies, kids will never know if they like broccoli,” Jesse said. “You’re just tricking them into eating it.” I couldn’t have said it better myself (of course, Jesse doesn’t eat broccoli anyway).

In her new book, Jessica Seinfeld is trying to teach parents that making a healthy home cooked meal doesn’t have to be time-consuming or challenging. For instance, crock pots can be a real time saver for busy working parents.

“People are working double what they used to do in this country, and lives have gotten more complicated,” Jessica told Oprah. “Food is something that’s suffered in this country.”

To test out her theory, “The Oprah Show” challenged Jessica Seinfeld to help out some of the worst cooks in America. She taught them how to cook easy and nutritious meals for their family. But there’s no guarantee they’ll use what they learned once they return home.

Seinfeld also provided advice for making the right choices when grocery shopping (for instance, don’t go food shopping when you’re hungry!).
