One of the most important aspects of summer is reconnecting with family, so Oprah's determined to bring back the family meal. "Dinner has become something a lot of families just pop in the microwave and wolf down while watching TV," she says. "I think we can all do better than that."
From cocktails to cobblers, chicken to chutney, the O, The Oprah Magazine Cookbook features 175 recipes from more than 60 famous chefs, including Ina Garten, Bobby Flay, Colin Cowie and Art Smith. "There are all of the favorite things I love to eat in this cookbook," Oprah says.
Oprah's favorite summer cocktail, the Pomegranate Daiquiri, comes straight from the pages of the O Cookbook. "There's a little taste of summer in every sip," she says.
