Description

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.show more

Review quote

"This is the kind of book you could easily cook out of for a month straight without tiring of it. You could also simply sit down and read it cover-to-cover, thanks to Perelman's honest, funny, and at times charmingly self-deprecating personal anecdotes that introduce each recipe. Where Perelman really shines is in coaxing big flavors out of minimal ingredients. The irresistible sauce for her miso-maple baby back ribs, for instance, contains just three ingredients and is dead-simple to put together. As with her first book, she shot all the photos herself in her own home kitchen, further adding to that sense of aspirational approachability. And really, that's the Smitten Kitchen magic: recipes that are ingeniously creative but so accessible that they leave you thinking, 'Why the hell didn't I think of that?'" --Eater "No one delivers recipes inspired by equal parts curiosity and appetite quite like Smitten Kitchen's Deb Perelman, and in this follow-up to her wildly popular The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, she celebrates the 'unfussy but triumphant' recipes that make her . . . really excited to cook and eat. Try getting through the book without flagging the Jam-Bellied Scones, Bacony Baked Pintos with the Works, and Lemon Meringue Pie Smash, and we'll be amazed." --Epicurious "Perelman leads by example to show that cooking for your family doesn't have to be stressful or agonizing, especially when it includes jam-filled scones, sheet pan meals and sandwiches that boldly declare themselves dinner." --Tasting Table "A joyous cookbook, filled with delectable, creative possibilities for every meal. . . . Perelman's latest is packed with tempting, well-written recipes that promise delicious meals for the whole family." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Perelman manages to improve upon her wonderful first cookbook, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, in her second. . . . These recipes are meant to minimize home cooks' strife and maximize the enjoyment they can share with appreciative others. . . . This is one to enjoy cover to cover." --Booklist (starred review) "Whether you're seeking an indulgent, impromptu breakfast, a speedy dinner culled from pantry staples and canned goods, or a bake sale best seller, you'll find something to love." --Library Journal (starred review) Praise for Deb Perelman and The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook A New York Times Best Seller - Winner of the IACP's Julia Child First Book Award - One of Cooking Light magazine's Top 100 Cookbooks of the Last 25 Years "Prepare to be seduced." --Rene Lynch, Los Angeles Times "The kind of soulful, simple food that I love to eat." --Danny Meyer "Innovative, creative, and effortlessly funny." --Cooking Light "Nothing short of stunning . . . The bar for cookbooks has officially been set." --Ree Drummond, author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks "Like a conversation with a witty friend who can recommend the perfect nosh for any occasion." --Katie Arnold-Ratliff, O, The Oprah Magazine "Utterly scrumptious. It's the kind of food you want to eat at home every weekend." --Yotam Ottolenghi "Showstopping." --Jenny Rosenstrach, author of Dinner: A Love Storyshow more
