Pull up a Chair by Tiffani Thiessen

Tiffani Thiessen began her career with acting roles on shows like Saved by the Bell and Beverly Hills 90210. But her more recent pursuits—and a passion for food—has led her to hosting her own Cooking Channel series, Dinner at Tiffani’s. On the show, Thiessen embraces her love of cooking and hosting social gatherings, sharing her favorite recipes to serve to friends and family.

And now, Thiessen’s fans don’t need to tune it at a certain time to collect her favorite recipes. Instead, they can pick up her cookbook, Pull Up a Chair, and have an entire collection of Thiessen’s meals right at their fingertips. And Pull Up a Chair aims to capture the actress’ hospitality as much as her Cooking Channel series does—making this a great cookbook for those with bigger families or who love having guests over.

Pull Up a Chair offers a total of 125 recipes intended to satisfy the full range of eaters. So, even if your family members are picky eaters or your guests have particular preferences, you can find something for them in Thiessen’s book. In addition to catering to all types of eaters, the cookbook also includes a variety of meal types.

And while Thiessen makes sure to include basic meals, like Brady’s Favorite Short Rib Enchiladas or Stuffed French Toast, she also features treats and desserts for special occasions, like Boozy Date Milkshakes or Mom’s Cream Cheese Pie.

Though Thiessen’s Pull Up a Chair isn’t a weight-loss eating guide, it focuses on the ways in which food brings human beings together. Cooks looking for balance in their lives — and ideas for group-friendly meals — should definitely give the book a try.
