‘Cooking Kept Me Sane - Simple, easy dishes that won’t drive you crazy!’
The new cookbook from Chef Jackie Valenti has been published by CKMS Productions LLC and is now available for purchase in both print and eBook editions.
According to Chef Jackie, “Growing up on Long Island in a middle class family, my mother cooked and baked every day. I learned from a very young age how to stretch a dollar! My book includes many family recipes as well as my take on classics dishes.
After graduating the Culinary Academy of Long Island and working at wonderful four-star and local restaurants, I began re-creating the same expensive meals for my family and friends at home for a fraction of the cost. ‘Cooking Kept Me Sane’ has been designed so even the most inexperienced cooks will be able to make a delicious meal for their families while staying well within their budget.”
‘Cooking Kept Me Sane’ offers 186 pages filled with photos, ingredients and directions to prepare delicious taste-tempting appetizers, salads, soups, entrees, desserts and much more! There is a bonus ‘Kid Friendly’ section as well. “Knowing many young families whose children are very picky eaters, there are numerous recipes all children love!” said Chef Jackie, “As head cook for a 100-child day care center, every one of the children, as well as some of their parents, would tell me all the time how much they loved my Mac and Cheese or Chicken Fingers and even the Meatloaf!”
