NCIS: Hawai’i star Vanessa Lachey is showing off her cooking skills in new photos. The actress, who plays the boss Jane Tennant on the brand new NCIS spinoff, posted the photos as a part of a promotion for her upcoming book, Life From Scratch which comes out soon.

In the Instagram post, Lachey goes into detail about her new book and her scrumptious cooking. The NC IS: Hawai’i star seems excited for the release.

“TWO WEEKS until #LifeFromScratchBook is out in the world! This is my Chicken Adobo. It’s the recipe that started it ALL. But this book is more than just recipes… it’s family traditions, memorable holidays, and all of the ways I’ve stumbled thru life to get here. Here’s to creating your own Beautiful “life from scratch”… with lots of Love, laughs & FOOD!” she wrote.

The chicken looks absolutely wonderful.

The NCIS: Hawai’i actress seems to have a lot on her plate. Seriously, bad puns aside, becoming the lead in a major franchise series and releasing your own book in the same year has to be a ton of work, but lots of fans are excited to see all Life From Scratch has to offer.
