The Skinnytaste Cookbook: Cover Designs (Help Me Choose!)

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

After a year of recipe testing, manuscript writing, editing, photo shoots, and everything else that goes into writing a cookbook (and let me tell ya, there is a lot!), I’m SO excited to share three cover designs that (fingers-crossed!) I hope you like as much as I do. But I need your help—I can’t decide which one I like best, so I thought it would be fun to let YOU decide!

The Skinnytaste Cookbook Cover Designs

The design team at Clarkson Potter worked really hard to come up with a cover that would stand out on the shelves. We narrowed it down to three, all photographed by the very talented Penny De Los Santos.

The three recipes pictured on these covers are:

A) Cheesy Baked Penne with Eggplant
B) Buttermilk Oven “Fried” Chicken
C) Kiss My (Shrimp and) Grits

Please help me choose by telling me which you like best: A, B or C in your comments (please don’t email me)!

And if you haven’t already done so, be sure to sign up for The Skinnytaste Cookbook newsletter. That way you’ll be the first to receive recipes, special offers, and lots more about the book!

  1. Cheesy baked eggplant with penne.

  2. I love your recipes! Ive lost 40 lbs with your recipes and weight watchers…(and Im vegetarian! I just substitute vegetarian options for the meat) but the cookbooks, B catches my eye first and gives the impression of traditional simple comfort food with its layout and contrast…I’m a busy person and want simple and fast……A implies that you can eat light and still have pasta(generally a ” no no” in diet world) but it does imply more complicated as well but I think the pasta doesn’t look very appealing in this photo. C looks exotic and freshbut makes me think complicated and time consuming.
