Celebrity Picks: Gina Homolka's Favorite Reads of 2018

Chris Schluep on January 14, 2019


If any book is designed to give you more time to read, it's Gina Homolka's Skinnytaste: One and Done, featuring "140 No-Fuss Dinners for Your Instant Pot®, Slow Cooker, Air Fryer, Sheet Pan, Skillet, Dutch Oven, and More." In fact, you may spend more time reading that subtitle than you will cooking. (I'll be here all night, try the chicken.)

We asked the founder of Skinnytaste.com what she read and loved this year, and the best-selling cookbook author recommended three books that have inspired her in different ways.

Scroll down to see some of her favorite reads of 2018, and to learn what her next cookbook is going to be about!
