I don't know about y'all, but just thinking about Thanksgiving makes me hungry. Turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes... I could go on and on and on. And with turkey day just around the corner, (11 days but who's counting?) I've been thinking not only about food, but about cooking (something I love to do). And there are a few cookbooks that I've already snatched up or plan to buy that all have a theme that, as a pregnant woman about to pop, is more than appealing, it's a must: healthy, quick and easy.




Jessica Seinfeld's latest cookbook, Double Delicious!: Good, Simple Food for Busy, Complicated Lives captured my attention because I'm the cook in the house. (As much as I love my hubby, we'd be eating chicken for dinner seven nights a week if I left it up to him)  So, because Double Delicious focuses on healthy recipes for the entire family (while still using the "power of purees" to make everything healthier like she did in her last cookbook, New York Times bestseller, Deceptively Delicious) I'm in!  From an apple crumble to a chocolate peanut butter pie! Did I mention these are healthy recipes? Yum....I can't wait to try out this book and see how the family responds!

Love the Jessica Seinfield cookbook...saw her make several of these recipes on Oprah the other day and they looked yummy....Oprah loves them and so does her husband Jerry...I like the way she sneaks vegetables into foods and makes them delicious too!!
