<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • It’s not entertaining. It’s having people over. The social media star, <i>New York Times </i>columnist, and author of <i>Dining In</i> helps you nail dinner with unfussy food, unstuffy vibes, and the permission to be imperfect. <br />  <br /> NAMED ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR BY <i>THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW </i>AND NPR<i> </i>• A <i>PEOPLE</i> 2019 FOOD FAVORITE<br /><br />“<i>Nothing Fancy</i> delivers what those of hoping to up our dinner party game are looking for: It’s utterly current and distinctly <i>doable</i>.”—<i>Eater</i></b><br />  <br /> An unexpected weeknight meal with a neighbor or a weekend dinner party with fifteen of your closest friends—either way and everywhere in between, having people over is supposed to be fun, not stressful. This abundant collection of all-new recipes—heavy on the easy-to-execute vegetables and versatile grains, paying lots of close attention to crunchy, salty snacks, and with love for all the meats—is for gatherings big and small, any day of the week. <br />  <br /> Alison Roman will give you the food your people want (think DIY martini bar, platters of tomatoes, pots of coconut-braised chicken and chickpeas, pans of lemony turmeric tea cake) plus the tips, sass, and confidence to pull it all off. With <i>Nothing Fancy</i>, any night of the week is worth celebrating.<br /><br /><b>Praise for </b><i><b>Nothing Fancy</b></i><br /><br />“[<i>Nothing Fancy</i>] is full of the sort of recipes that sound so good, one contemplates switching off any and all phones, calling in sick, and cooking through the bulk of them.”<b>—<i>Food52</i></b><br />  <br /> “[<i>Nothing Fancy</i>] exemplifies that classic Roman approach to cooking: well-known ingredients rearranged in interesting and compelling ways for young home cooks who want food that looks (and photographs) as good as it tastes.”<b>—<i>Grub Street</i></b><br />  <br /> “The recipes will provide well for friendly dinner parties, while still being straightforward enough to cook quickly on a midweek evening after work.”<b>—<i>Vogue</i></b><br />  <br /> “Roman's recipes are elegant but straightforward, impressive but actionable, with an emphasis on easy vegetables (like peppers with yuzu), homespun desserts (like blackberry and cornmeal cake), and show-stopping entrees (like lamb chops for the table).”<b>—<i>Esquire</i></b>

<b>#1 <i>New York Times</i> Bestseller, first in the bestselling series</b><br /><br />Thug Kitchen started their wildly popular website to inspire people to eat some goddamn vegetables and adopt a healthier lifestyle. Beloved by Gwyneth Paltrow ('This might be my favorite thing ever') and with half a million Facebook fans and counting, Thug Kitchen wants to show everyone how to take charge of their plates and cook up some real f*cking food.<br /><br />Yeah, plenty of blogs and cookbooks preach about how to eat more kale, why ginger fights inflammation, and how to cook with microgreens and nettles. But they are dull or pretentious as hell—and most people can't afford the hype.<br /><br />Thug Kitchen lives in the real world. In their first cookbook, they're throwing down more than 100 recipes for their best-loved meals, snacks and sides for beginning cooks to home chefs. (Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos? Pumpkin Chili? Grilled Peach Salsa? Believe that sh*t.) Plus they're going to arm you with all the info and techniques you need to shop on a budget and go and kick a bunch of ass on your own.<br /><br />This book is an invitation to everyone who wants to do better to elevate their kitchen game. No more ketchup and pizza counting as vegetables. No more drive-thru lines. No more avoiding the produce corner of the supermarket. Sh*t is about to get real.<br /><br />Can't get enough?

<b>This <i>New York Times</i> bestselling cookbook from Danielle Walker presents 125 recipes for grain-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free comfort food dishes for holidays and special occasions.</b><br /> <br /><b>NAMED ONE OF THE FIVE BEST GLUTEN-FREE COOKBOOKS OF ALL TIME BY <i>MINDBODYGREEN</i></b><br /><br />When people adopt a new diet for health or personal reasons, they worry most about the parties, holidays, and events with strong food traditions, fearing their fond memories will be lost along with the newly eliminated food groups. After suffering for years with a debilitating autoimmune disease and missing many of these special occasions herself, Danielle Walker has revived the joy that cooking for holidays can bring in <i>Danielle Walker's Against All Grain Celebrations</i>, a collection of recipes and menus for twelve special occasions throughout the year. <br /> <br />Featuring a variety of birthday cakes, finger foods to serve at a baby or bridal shower, and re-creations of backyard barbecue standards like peach cobbler and corn bread, Danielle includes all of the classics. There’s a full Thanksgiving spread—complete with turkey and stuffing, creamy green bean casserole, and pies—and menus for Christmas dinner; a New Year's Eve cocktail party and Easter brunch are covered, along with suggestions for beverages and cocktails and the all-important desserts. Recipes can be mixed and matched among the various occasions, and many of the dishes are simple enough for everyday cooking. Stunning full-color photographs of every dish make browsing the pages as delightful as cooking the recipes, and beautiful party images provide approachable and creative entertaining ideas. <br /> <br />Making recipes using unfamiliar ingredients can cause anxiety, and while trying a new menu on a regular weeknight leaves some room for error, the meal simply cannot fail when you have a table full of guests celebrating a special occasion. Danielle has transformed her most cherished family traditions into trustworthy recipes you can feel confident serving, whether you’re hosting a special guest with food allergies, or cooking for a crowd of regular grain-eaters.
