Praise for Food Swings

"It's a lot easier to make healthy choices when the meals are both good for you and crazy good at the same time. Jessica Seinfeld's new book, Food Swings, has that nailed, packed as it is with simple recipes that are kind to your body, crowd-pleasingly delicious (quit the side-eye, picky fourth grader), even gluten-free. Dinner victory, all around." -- Redbook

"Seinfeld has assembled 125 recipes that allow readers to eat as healthfully or indulgently as their mood dictates. . . . Readers can have their cake and quinoa, too, with Seinfeld's latest, which strikes an effective balance between two popular eating styles." -- Library Journal

"Jessica Seinfeld gets it, even down to the one-liners. With three cookbooks under her apron, Seinfeld takes a cue or two from her husband, Jerry, targeting both the devil and the damsel in her 125 recipes. She's eminently practical, very straightforward, and keeps her dishes in line with our modern proclivities: quick, healthy with an occasional sinfulness, convenient for the beginner as well as for the experienced home chef." -- Booklist

"In a friendly voice Seinfeld encourages readers to take her approach to what she calls 'food swings' and eat without guilt. Or, she concedes, to eat with less guilt. . . . However you divide up the recipes, this is a great day-to-day cookbook with tasty-looking recipes that are approachable and simple to prepare." -- Publishers Weekly

Booklist Review: "Jessica Seinfeld gets it, even down to the one-liners. With three cookbooks under her apron, Seinfeld takes a cue or two from her husband, Jerry, targeting both the devil and the damsel in her 125 recipes. She's eminently practical (I never throw out spotty brown bananas). Very straightforward (Teaching me how to cook was one of the smartest things my mother ever did). And keeps her dishes in line with our modern proclivities: quick, healthy with an occasional sinfulness, convenient for the beginner as well as for the experienced home chef. If virtuous, the dishes are marked as vegan, dairy-free, or gluten-free. All include great photographs, easy instructions, and hints on technique (e.g., how to zest citrus or cook brown rice). Almost more important are her confessions that, yes, food can be a temptation and she shares some of her strategies to duck the devil. Dishes from chard-wrapped cod and roasted plums with honey and pistachios to chicken Parmesan to chocolate-fudge cake that can appeal to a variety of tastes.--Jacobs, Barbara Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In a friendly voice Seinfeld encourages readers to take her approach to what she calls "food swings" and eat without guilt. Or, she concedes, to eat with less guilt. The book is divided into the virtuous recipes, which appear to be nutrient rich and lower in fat and calories, and the vice recipes, which focus on flavor and indulgence. Seinfeld explains her food-swings concept as an honest approach to eating. Readers will find oven-baked fried chicken under virtue and, no surprise, fried chicken listed under vice. Seinfeld manages to make chicken for dinner seem exciting again, with subtle tweaks to classic recipes, including peach and sriracha chicken over coconut rice and orange chicken with rosemary. The virtuous recipes are the stars, of which a variety of quick but innovative breakfasts will stand out to those bored of yogurt parfaits. Seinfeld and her cocreator Sara Quessenberry layer flavors creatively, which makes the virtuous recipes truly appealing. The virtuous desserts tempt with their vicelike allure, including Seinfeld's family-movie-night treat that she makes "when I want my family to like me": chocolate-popcorn almond clusters. Vice desserts are, not surprisingly, equally desirable, such as Seinfeld's lemon-macaroon pie. However you divide up the recipes, this is a great day-to-day cookbook with tasty-looking recipes that are approachable and simple to prepare. Agent: Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, WME.
