Deb Perelman, award-winning blogger and New York Times best-selling author of The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, understands that a happy discovery in the kitchen has the ability to completely change the course of your day. Whether we’re cooking for ourselves, for a date night in, for a Sunday supper with friends, or for family on a busy weeknight, we all want recipes that are unfussy to make with triumphant results. Deb thinks that cooking should be an escape from drudgery. Smitten Kitchen Every Day: Triumphant and Unfussy New Favorites presents more than one hundred impossible-to-resist recipes—almost all of them brand-new, plus a few favorites from her website—that will make you want to stop what you’re doing right now and cook. These are real recipes for real people—people with busy lives who don’t want to sacrifice flavor or quality to eat meals they’re really excited about.You’ll want to put these recipes in your Forever Files: Sticky Toffee Waffles (sticky toffee pudding you can eat for breakfast), Everything Drop Biscuits with Cream Cheese, and Magical Two-Ingredient Oat Brittle (a happy accident). There’s a (hopelessly, unapologetically inauthentic) Kale Caesar with Broken Eggs and Crushed Croutons, a Mango Apple Ceviche with Sunflower Seeds, and a Grandma-Style Chicken Noodle Soup that fixes everything. You can make Leek, Feta, and Greens Spiral Pie, crunchy Brussels and Three Cheese Pasta Bake that tastes better with brussels sprouts than without, Beefsteak Skirt Steak Salad, and Bacony Baked Pintos with the Works (as in, giant bowls of beans that you can dip into like nachos). And, of course, no meal is complete without cake (and cookies and pies and puddings): Chocolate Peanut Butter Icebox Cake (the icebox cake to end all icebox cakes), Pretzel Linzers with Salted Caramel, Strawberry Cloud Cookies, Bake Sale Winning-est Gooey Oat Bars, as well as the ultimate Party Cake Builder—four one-bowl cakes for all occasions with mix-and-match frostings (bonus: less time spent doing dishes means everybody wins).Written with Deb’s trademark humor and gorgeously illustrated with her own photographs, Smitten Kitchen Every Day is filled with what are sure to be your new favorite things to cook.
Smitten Kitchen Every Day Review
- January 1, 1970Laura McLoughlinSo I've only had this cookbook for about 3 days and I've only made one of the recipes (Wild Mushroom Shepherd's Pie) but it was super delicious! Really just about everything in here looks amazing and I can't wait to try some more recipes!
- January 1, 1970Gretchen AliceClassic Smitten Kitchen. I read through all of Deb's recipe intros and as always, they were warm and funny and insightful. I'm gonna start cooking my way through this weekend, starting with the blueberry muffins.
- January 1, 1970LisaI really enjoyed the first Smitten Kitchen, the food looked and sounded totally scrumptious. This book was no exception. There were tons of pictures, that I love. Everything Looked very eatable. The recipes are great, but the ingredients list is very dense. Some of the recipes have pages of ingredients and instructions. That to me would seem daunting, I don't know if I would even attempt to make it if I saw that much that I would have to involve myself with. With that being said I think that I w I really enjoyed the first Smitten Kitchen, the food looked and sounded totally scrumptious. This book was no exception.

- January 1, 1970Michelle JenkinsFive years in the making, Smitten Kitchen Everyday is a gorgeous book that delivers some novel twists: the fattoush turns into a seasonally inspired fall-touch; the breakfast Dutch Baby pancake goes savory with parmesan and mushrooms. Based on the two dishes I’ve made so far, the pizza beans and the fall-toush, the recipes are easy to follow and live up to the “every day” moniker. I can’t wait to dig in to the book in earnest.

- January 1, 1970JacquelineAs usual, I enjoyed the rhetoric and banter by the author - most of the time I can follow her thoughts which I enjoy. She did a good job explaining each recipe.I did enjoy several recipes but there were many I wouldn't even consider making. All in all, its a great cookbook.more
