About the Author

Caroline Chambers grew up in the kitchen on her mom's hip, learning how to cook in their Winston-Salem, North Carolina, home. Her professional food career began in her early twenties when she worked as a chef and caterer. After a stint in a professional test kitchen, Caro struck out on her own as a freelancer, developing recipes for a host of publications as well as brands such as Boursin Cheese and Kim Crawford Wine, and in 2018, she published her first cookbook, Just Married. In 2020--at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic--Caro began sharing her recipes and connecting with home cooks on Instagram (@carochambers), and launched her newsletter, What to Cook When You Don't Feel Like Cooking, which flew to the top of the Substack charts; her podcast, So Into That, followed in 2023. Caro lives in Carmel Valley, California, with her husband, George, and their three young sons, Mattis, Calum, and Cashel--one of whom can almost always be found in the kitchen on her hip. When she doesn't feel like cooking, Caro's go-to meal is Veggie Peanut Noods (page 52).


"As a mom of three boys, Caro knows what both parents and kids crave, and my own two picky children magically devour every recipe of hers. This cookbook feels like chatting with your wise and funny friend who always gives you something good to eat and a little too much to drink. It is a how-did-we-live-without-it gift for us all, and I can't wait to happily dog-ear and smudge it up."--Joanna Goddard, founder of Cup of Jo

"Nobody understands the reality of needing to cook when you might not feel like it more than Caroline Chambers. From time to energy to a mostly empty fridge, this book--rather rudely, as I'll now need to come up with new excuses--covers every angle to find a delicious and doable solution."--Deb Perelman, New York Times bestselling author of Smitten Kitchen Keepers

"I've always been a cook who celebrates imperfection, and I think Caro might be my kitchen soulmate! She wants you to know how to do your thing with her recipes, no matter what ingredients you have on hand or how much time (or energy) you have to cook them. In her world, it's impossible to make a mistake. This is Live, Laugh, Love cooking at its finest!"--Dan "Grossy" Pelosi, New York Times bestselling author of Let's Eat

"I wish I could say I'm shocked by the fact that I flipped through the recipes in this book and thought, Yeah I'd make that. And that, too. And oh, I have everything I need at home for that, and omg my kids will love me if I make that for them. But as a longtime fan of Caroline Chambers, I am extremely (luckily) familiar with her genius knack for knowing exactly what the busy modern cook needs. This collection of keepers is going on the most reachable shelf in my kitchen. --Jenny Rosenstrach, New York Times bestselling author of Dinner: A Love Story

"If you're anything like me (and the rest of this country), inspiration doesn't strike every night when it comes time to cook dinner. Not to fear, friends: Caroline has us covered. This beautiful and very accessible cookbook has a little something for everyone, from one-pot meals to 15-minute dinners. You'll be armed with new staples you and your friends and family will enjoy." --Gaby Dalkin, New York Times bestselling author of What's Gaby Cooking: Take It Easy
