Book Description:

Learn to love your kitchen with this practical guidebook from the New York Times bestselling author of The Lazy Genius Way. Using proven Lazy Genius principles—embracing what matters and ditching what doesn’t—Kendra Adachi helps you feed your people with efficiency and ease. You’ll learn to apply her simple, actionable five-step process—prioritize, essentialize, organize, personalize, and systemize—to multiple areas of your kitchen so you can equip and enjoy it in ways you’ve always wanted, no matter your life stage or skill set.

Do you ever walk into your kitchen and feel the urge to turn around and walk right back out? Maybe you get hives when you hear the phrases “meal planning” and “food prep,” or you feel as though you just cram stuff in cabinets and hope for the best. And if someone asks you to host Thanksgiving at your house? Forget it. This is the book that will change all that, helping you create a kitchen that works for you. 

As you learn to plan, prep, cook, and host like a Lazy Genius, you will find the five Lazy Genius steps become a part of every aspect of your happier, easier kitchen life. They are foundational to finding pain points, naming helpful solutions, and creating a sustainable rhythm in your kitchen. This practical book—loaded with color, illustrations, and actionable help—is where you begin. This is a guidebook, not a cookbook, about kitchen organization, meal planning, grocery shopping, prepping, cooking, and cleaning up. Straightforward, strategic, soulful, and a little sassy, The Lazy Genius Kitchen might just change everything in your hardest-working room.

My Take:

SK Book Review - Lazy Genius Kitchen

Real steps and guidelines to succeed  in the kitchen!

I am a fan of The Lazy Genius Podcast and own (and love) The Lazy Genius book, so it’s no surprise I love this book. One of Kendra’s greatest gifts to us all is giving us outlines, guides, and suggestions on how to make systems work for YOUR own life. You don’t have to do things exactly as she does or your mom does or your college roommate does. Find the way that works best for you. This book will help.

A LOT of Big Sister Energy – in the best way!

The author vows “to be both excessively kind and helpful” and fully delivers as this book is full of gentle suggestions and handy tips to help you do you in the best way possible.
