Cooking with Jessica

I'm a little obsessed with Jessica Seinfield's new cookbook, Double Delicious, Good Simple Food for Busy, Complicated Lives. Not that my life is that terribly complicated right now, but it is really nice to have some help coming up with dinner ideas. We tried the Sweet Cherry Tomato Pasta recipe over the weekend and everyone loved it. Her website and blog are packed with ideas and ways to help motivate even the laziest cook, like this Well Stocked Kitchen Guide. AND there's a Community section where people can share tips and ask questions. Love this suggestion:

“Check an egg's freshness by placing it in a bowl of water. If the egg lies flat on its side, it's fresh; if it floats, throw it out!”

Enjoy and let me know if you try any recipes!
