The Best Don’t Cookbook [QUICK + EASY]

The Postmates Don’t Cookbook is the world’s first cookbook that in now way requires any cooking. At all. Whatsoever. Ever.

Every family is different when it comes to food, and my family has our own tradition—we’re Don’t Cooks.

That’s right, I come from a long line of dinner-ordering-kitchen-skippers. It all started with my great-great-grandmother. One morning, she knew that she wanted a delicious breakfast, but she also knew she in no way wanted to make it. Or wanted anyone else, for that matter. She decided that a clean kitchen was a happy kitchen.

From that day forward, the Don’t Cooking started and never really stopped. My grandmother was a Don’t Cook, my mom was a Don’t Cook, and I won’t even touch a cutting board. So whether you have Don’t Cooking in your blood or you just want to get started now, read on for exactly what you need to know.

Why is this cookbook the easiest ever?

The Don’t Cookbook is the easiest cookbook ever because, well, it involves no cooking. If you’re looking for an easy cookbook, this might honestly be too easy. Close the pantry, turn off the oven, put away the plates. Because tonight, you’re not cooking. And tomorrow, you’re not cooking. And next month? Well, you get the idea.

Who said that cookbooks need to teach you how to cook?

The person who said that cookbooks need to teach you how to cook was very old school and we no longer follow their ideas. Instead, now cookbooks show you pretty pictures and inspire you. Oh, you don’t like being inspired? Then the Don’t Cookbook might not be for you.

*NOTE: We’re not sure who invented cookbooks, okay? But we do know that Postmates invented Don’t Cookbooks.

What should I do if my dog eats the Don’t Cookbook?

If your dog ate your Don’t Cookbook then you are an overachiever because guess what? That’s one more meal you don’t have to cook.

Can you freeze the Don’t Cookbook?
