It’s true! Food Network Magazine’s new cookbook, Great Easy Meals, is officially a New York Times Best Seller. The new cookbook is packed with 250 simple meals that are perfect for weeknight cooking, including 50 new ten-minute dessert recipes. The book also has dozens of cooking tips from the Food Network Kitchens, menu-planning ideas and looks inside the kitchens of your favorite FN stars. Food Network Magazine featured a few of the super-easy, super-fast desserts in its April issue. Here are a couple of favorites:
To celebrate the launch of its new cookbook, folks from the magazine drove around New York City in a treats truck, handing out sweets as well as copies of the April issue of the mag. Despite it being a rainy day in the city, hundreds of people showed up to the truck for a chance to nibble on some Cheesecake Pops.
And quite unexpectedly, Paula Deen made a special guest appearance at the truck. She was having lunch nearby and wanted to see what the crowds were gathering for. When she found out the reason, she stopped to greet fans and pose for a few photos.
