In a society where everyone seeks to be special and pride themselves on their differences, there is one common bond that unites us all: basicness. And while some people are more basic than others, Joey relishes in life’s most simple pleasures like jumping in a pile of leaves, imbibing bottomless mimosas, lighting a farmers market-scented Yankee Candle, and eating avocado toast on flaxseed-heavy bread.

Whether you’re an awful cook, a recent grad, or someone who just simply enjoys their basic meals, “Basic Bitchen” will arm you with over 100 tried-and-true recipes that are not only delicious, but also super easy to make. Plus, many basic bitch dishes capitalize on health trends and superfoods, so they ultimately make you feel good, too. Recipes include:

– Mom’s Definitely-Not-Sicilian Sicilian Caesar Salad
– “I Could Eat This, Like, Every Day” Sushi Rolls
– A Deeply Personal Cauliflower Pizza
– Way Too Easy (If You Know What I Mean) One-Sheet Pan Dinners
– Antidepressant Red Velvet Cake Pops

You’ll also learn some things along the way, like pantry necessities, tips and tricks while cooking, and the kitchen tools that are essential for any chef.

“Basic Bitchen” is now available, so order your copy online. We can already smell the pumpkin spice lattes.
