    Award-winning food blogger Deb Perelman shares her fun & fabulous food and photos in "The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook". Using her natural cooking intuition, ceaseless curiosity, and expansive imagination, the author has created a wonderfully inviting culinary world in the space of her tiny kitchen. Sharing food preparation tips, and stories and photos for each recipe, Deb Perelman adds her own flair to user-friendly ingredients. While I found much to enjoy in each chapter of the book, the "Breakfast" chapter stood out for me above all the rest. I enjoy big weekend breakfast/brunches, and sometimes "breakfast for supper" just really hits the spot. Recipes like "Peach and Sour Cream Pancakes", "Maple Bacon Biscuits", "New York Breakfast Casserole", and "Cheddar Swirl Breakfast Buns" are too good to limit to a morning meal. Other favorites include: "Iceberg Stack with Blue Cheese and Radishes"; "Butternut Squash and Caramelized Onion Galette"; "Pork Chops with Cider, Horseradish, and Dill"; "Tomato-Glazed Meatloaves with Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes"; "Buttered Popcorn Cookies"; and "Deepest Dish Apple Pie". As you turn the pages of this tasty tome, you can't help but join in Deb Perelman's love of life and joy of cooking great food--and that is a very good thing indeed.

    I am giving this cookbook 5 stars not only because it was an excellent cookbook with easy directions and colorfully detailed pictures, but because it made me want to attempt to bake again! I will admit right now that although I do enjoy cooking, a baker I am not, and it is only once a year that I will attempt to bake even a dozen cookies. This book, however, changed all of that.

    I am giving this cookbook 5 stars not only because it was an excellent cookbook with easy directions and colorfully detailed pictures, but because it made me want to attempt to bake again! I will admit right now that although I do enjoy cooking, a baker I am not, and it is only once a year that I will attempt to bake even a dozen cookies. This book, however, changed all of that.

    I first requested this book (I must mention that I received this wonderful cookbook through a goodreads giveaways contest) after spending months salivating over Mrs. Perelman's recipes featured in her blog. I was interested not only because her food looked good and tasty, but also because I noticed quite a few Russian influences in her cooking (I believe her husband is Russian). This caught my attention and once I received her book and started out testing her recipes, I became an instant fan of hers.

    One thing that I love about this cookbook is the sheer number of beautiful photographs of food; I love being able to see what the recipe looks like before I decide to make it myself. Almost every recipe in this book has a picture of it - just looking at them make extremely hungry.

    As I mentioned before, I despise baking, but after looking at all those scrumptious pictures, I decided to try a couple of recipes - with very good results! The Cranberry Crumb Bars were very easy to make and were a huge hit at my house, perfect for a holidays dessert. Another recipe that was absolutely fabulous was the Gooey Cinnamon Squares; they were a bit time-consuming, but the results were fantastic, my husband at ALL of them in one day. Because of this, I am now more confident in my baking skills and will soon tackle the Golden Sheet Cake with Berry Buttercream recipe.

    I want to cook like 90% of the things in here. Since some of the recipes are also on her blog I can tell you that the salted brown butter rice crispy treats are to die for and the mushroom bourguignon is good, probably even delicious if you love mushrooms (I do not). For recipes that are totally new, I tried making the swiss chard and white bean pot pies (sans pancetta) last night and they were fabulous. And I am dying to make the apple cider caramels.

    This is currently becoming one of my favorite cookbooks that I own. Everything I have tried (which is a lot) from this cookbook has been fantastic and solid and quite delicious. Her little "stories" before each recipe are entertaining and a joy to read. The pictures are perfect, and each recipe is written well, tested, and easy to follow. A great, great book.

    Yes, this counts as reading, because each recipe is preceded by Deb's lovable writing about her life, her family, and her food. And because the introduction and end material are Deb all over: funny, self-deprecating, full of excitement and good cheer, and more than anything encouraging for anyone who wants to cook but is afraid that time or energy or skill or knowledge will keep them from being able to.

    And also because I curled up and spent a good hour paging slowly through it, reading every wor
