To launch her own book imprint, Oprah Winfrey is releasing her first cookbook.

Winfrey's "Food, Health and Happiness: 'On Point' Recipes for Great Meals and a Better Life" is scheduled to come out Jan. 3 of next year, Flatiron Books told The Associated Press on Wednesday. Winfrey's imprint, currently unnamed, is part of Flatiron, a division of MacMillan U.S.

"In the past several months on Weight Watchers, I have worked with wonderful chefs to make healthier versions of my favorite meals," Winfrey said in a statement. "When people come to my house for lunch or dinner, the number one thing they ask is, 'How is this so delicious and still healthy?' So I decided to answer that question with recipes everyone can enjoy."

Winfrey isn't entirely new to the cookbook world. Her personal chef, Rosie Daley, published "In the Kitchen with Rosie: Oprah's Favorite Recipes" in 1994. Winfrey contributed an introduction to "The Oprah Magazine Cookbook," which came out in 2008.

In announcing the imprint last year, Winfrey had planned to start with a memoir, "The Life You Want." That book has been postponed to an underdetermined date, according to Flatiron. The imprint is expected to release several nonfiction works per year, all selected by Winfrey.
