Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Lazy Genius Way comes a fresh perspective for getting the most out of your kitchen! 

“An empowering, transformative, and slightly sassy guidebook.”—Jenna Fischer, actress, author, and producer/cohost of Office Ladies podcast 

You want your kitchen to be the heartbeat of the home, but you’re overwhelmed and out of breath trying to make it happen. Meals are on a never-ending loop, and you don’t have time to prepare dinner, much less enjoy it. Popular Lazy Genius expert and bestselling author Kendra Adachi is here to help! 

Packed with proven Lazy Genius principles, the book will teach you to: 

  • Name what matters to you in the kitchen—whether that’s flavor, convenience, or something else entirely.
  • Feed your people with efficiency and ease.
  • Apply a simple, actionable five-step process—prioritize, essentialize, organize, personalize, and systemize—to multiple areas of your kitchen, empowering you to enjoy your kitchen the way you’ve always wanted.

You don’t need magical recipes, fancy gadgets, or daunting lists to follow to the letter; you just need a framework that works whether you’re cooking for one or for twenty. 

Straightforward, strategic, soulful, and a little sassy, The Lazy Genius Kitchen will turn your hardest-working room into your favorite one, too. 

*Includes a downloadable PDF of Lazy Genius Kitchen recipes, master lists of ingredients and ingredients combos, Cooking Techniques, and more from the book

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The Lazy Genius Strikes Gold!

I LOVE listening to Kendra read me her newest book! She’s so easy to listen to - and this book is so incredibly helpful for ALL of our kitchens! She doesn’t tell us what to do. She helps us discover what matters and guides us from there! I’ll be listening more than once!

Does not disappoint

I’ve been a raving fan of Kendra’s since the second I heard about her from the Pantsuit Politics ladies years ago, and I love her insight and compassion. I love that she doesn’t teach her way, she helps you think through what will work for you in a generous, clear, and thorough manner. I’ve got both of her books on both audio and in print— her narration is comforting, amusing, and warm, but you need the book for quick reference, because the instructions are invaluable.

The same thing over and over

It just kept going on and on and on and on and on I almost fell asleep I could’ve been an actual “lazy genius” by not reading this book and just cleaning my kitchen

Lazy Genius Kitchen episodes in one place amplified!

I love the Lazy Genius podcast, and still found plenty of ideas in the book. The PDF is going to be very helpful too. The only down side is that it does not have the listed vibes she has readers use to select what’s important to them in various chapters.

Great Book!

Kendra has stuck a great sense of humor and makes the topic of lazy-geniusing your kitchen interesting. She has lots of useful advice.

I love it when the author narrates her own book!!!!!
...especially when the author has a podcast and we are used to hearing her talk... listening to Kendra's ideas in someone else's voice would just be weird! SO, THANK YOU Kendra for narrating the book yourself!!
