Take It Easy from (@whatsgabycookin)

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for this book to be in the world. Book #4!! This is seriously a dream come true and it’s all thanks to you guys! You make my job so fun and I am so excited to be able to share even more recipes with you!

Take It Easy // 100+ Recipes for Zero Stress Deliciousness is officially out as of today! You can find it pretty much anywhere books are sold! Call your local book sellers, put one on hold and then scoot on over to snag it!

Here are of my fav places to buy books if you’re ordering online:

Book Tour:

It’s starting. If you don’t see your city on the list, just leave a comment below with where you’re located and I’ll do my best to make it happen! All the details and RSVP links for the Crate&Barrel signing can be found here! A few events are still coming together but I’ll update you guys here and on social media as soon as we get more dates + details. 


And a few FAQ’s:

Yes, some of the crew is coming with me! Thomas will be west coast! Matt is for sure coming to Texas!! Fingers crossed we can get Adam to Costa Mesa! My parents will be in Seattle too! And there will be a few surprised guests along the way too.

Ticket price: this covers the cost of the book. If you already pre-ordered 10,000 billion copies of the book because obviously you want to gift them to every single person that lives near you, you can bring them no problem and I will sign every single one!

Will there be food / drink at the signings: working on some fun surprises for each city! 

Tell me more about the Chicago dinner: it’s an entire WGC meal (from the book) with wine at Table by Crate!! Book your tables with you friends, parents, significant others etc! Just come hang and have an incredible meal with me! 

Any other questions, shout them out below and I’ll answer right away!

Okay – want even more info:

Here’s a little except about the book: In her new book, Gaby Dalkin returns with her signature approach: Enjoy your life by eating the food you love. But this time around, she also emphasizes a no-fuss attitude. What’s Gaby Cooking: Take It Easy offers 100 new delicious and stress-free recipes, suited for any and all occasions.
Everything we cook right now—whether it’s for a potluck picnic with friends or a solo night in binge-watching reality TV—needs to be crazy simple, easily pulled together from those lasting pantry items, still shockingly delicious at room temperature, and not requiring that one random ingredient you drove 45 minutes to get and will never use again. We want food that tastes like it took hours to prepare but doesn’t actually require anything too exact. Give us the forgiving recipes: Out of shallots? Try an onion. The more fail-proof, the better. If this low-maintenance approach sounds like your kinda thing, Dalkin has got your back. With 100 easy ideas for dishes to serve wherever you go (or don’t go!), make-ahead dressings and sauces for lazy last-minute dinners, and of course—give the people what they want!—big, crunchy, fresh salads and rich, chocolatey, you’re-in-sweatpants-anyway desserts, Take It Easy is Dalkin’s first book bringing her tasty, crowd-pleasing concepts to quicker, simpler meals.   

I wrote this book for many reasons but 2 big ones.

One – you guys. You guys make my job so much fun! I love seeing my recipes in your kitchen with your spin! Getting your messages on social and emails about how you’ve started cooking more with my recipes and don’t feel as intimidated in the kitchen literally make my YEAR! I love each and every one of you and am so thankful for you.

And two….because how often do you buy a book and only cook a few recipes out of it? Me – all the time. I always want to write books that you guys are able to use OVER AND OVER AND OVER again. Every recipe in the book is fantastic and I know you’re going to love it!

Okay!! I think that’s just about it. GAME on. I CANNOT WAIT to meet you guys in real life. I can’t wait to see what you guys make. ALL MY LOVE! XOXO


  1. We bought tickets for your previous tour that was cancelled due to Covid. We were never offered a refund. Any chance you’ll come to Utah since it was cancelled previously and can previous tickets be honored? Thanks!

    1. Hey Greg!! The tickets for the last tour just covered the book or a set of spices – they should have been sent to your home after tour was canceled! lMK if not and I can see if they can still honor that delivery!

  2. SO EXCITED to see Atlanta is on your book tour list!!! My cookbook club can’t wait to meet you!!! We love all your cookbooks and I’m sure we will love this one too!!!

  3. OMG, is this real life? I’ll see you in Chicago for dinner! I am beyond excited. Preordered, obviously because I’m a WGC fan for life.

  4. Just snagged tickets to the dinner in Chicago and I’m already nervous/anxious about getting a spot at the retreat! Any more details you can provide? Will we be able to book single rooms, should we find a roommate in advance, etc.?

  5. I can’t wait to get my book! It’s set to be delivered the day after my birthday! It would be awesome if you would be able to come through St. Louis for the tour.

  6. I second some other readers’ requests—can you squeeze Boston in? And it’s a pretty awesome place to eat. Amazing spots on all sides of the river. Please come!

  7. Soooooooi Happy you have chosen to go with
    Crate and Barrel!! Love them. Williams-Sonoma has gone down hill big time. I no longer have interest in them! Crate and Barrel is where it’s at!!

  8. I preordered 2 months ago. Can’t wait! Love your videos and your adorable family.
    Come to Houston please!!!

  9. Would love if you came to South Florida. I’m in Fort Lauderdale but anywhere in South Florida would be amazing!!

  10. Please come to Palm Desert , Palm Springs or La Quinta. Aren’t your parents in Palm Springs? Would love to purchase signed books for Christmas presents and meet you. PLEASE ❤️

  11. I realize we don’t have a Crate and Barrel sadly, but I know you do come to my beautiful town of Santa Barbara!! We would love you to do a book signing here… maybe William Sonoma!!
