Jessica Seinfeld Helps Some of the Worst Cooks in America (VIDEO)

Jessica Seinfeld Helps Some of the Worst Cooks in AmericaJessica Seinfeld is the wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld. But she has a career that is separate from her multimillionaire husband. She's the author of 'Double Delicious!' -- a new cookbook inspired by her life as the busy mother of three.

Jessica feels that modern families need quick, simple recipes. She's developed the trick of sneaking healthy ingredients into her meals -- as a way of getting her kids to eat their veggies!

On 'Oprah' (weekdays, syndicated), Oprah Winfrey put Jessica's expertise to the test. Winfrey had Ms. Seinfeld teach some of the "worst cooks in America" to make a meal for themselves. One of the worst cooks: A woman named Darlene, who barely uses her kitchen at all. Instead of making meals, Darlene uses her oven to store jewelery and her crock pot to hold her hair products.

But Jessica was up to the challenge. She nixed the idea of using the crock pot for hair products, and taught Darlene to use the slow-cooker to make a fast, easy lasagna recipe. Jessica even snuck some baby spinach into the dish, as a way of getting Darlene to eat her greens.

Husband Jerry was in the audience and expressed his approval of Jessica's food, via a very "Seinfeld-ian" gesture: a quick, exuberant hand-slap on his chair.
