Cook the Book: 'The Food You Crave'


Like just about everyone else, the folks at Serious Eats world headquarters invariably end up eating way too much during the holidays. So like lemmings we all end up in the same place in the new year, watching our weight and wanting to take off a few pounds (or more).

That's why we were thrilled when we received a copy of The Food You Crave, by the Food Network's Ellie Krieger, in the mail. Unlike many other healthy, light cookbooks, Krieger's book actually has lots of dishes that sound great and normal. You don't find too many healthy cookbooks with recipes for a meatball and pepper hero. So we figured a great way to start the new year's Cook the Book columns is with The Food You Crave.

We have five copies of the timely book to give away. Just comment on this post telling us what healthy food you crave. You have until next Monday, January 7, at 3 p.m. ET to enter. Standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
