Smitten Kitchen Every Day: Triumphant and Unfussy New Favorites Reviews

  • Julie Ehlers

    I'm a devoted fan of the Smitten Kitchen cooking blog. Every recipe I've tried from the site has been a success (if I do say so myself), and many of them are now in my permanent repertoire. But I wasn't as fond of the first Smitten Kitchen cookbook (imaginatively titled

    I'm a devoted fan of the Smitten Kitchen cooking blog. Every recipe I've tried from the site has been a success (if I do say so myself), and many of them are now in my permanent repertoire. But I wasn't as fond of the first Smitten Kitchen cookbook (imaginatively titled

    ). I see I gave it four stars here on Goodreads, but I'm pretty sure that was due to a combination of the book's physical beauty (Deb Perelman is also an amazing food photographer) and my love for the website. The fact is, I cooked only one recipe from that book (something having to do with black beans), it was nothing special, and I never made it again. Recently I looked through the book again on the theory that I was the problem rather than the book, but nope—I

    didn't find anything else I wanted to make.

    As a result, I didn't exactly rush to the store to purchase Perelman's second cookbook,

    , but when I did finally get a chance to look through it, I saw so many recipes that I wanted to try that I brought it up to the register without a second thought. When I got home I happily read it from cover to cover. Each recipe is delightfully introduced by Perelman (she's a really good writer, and funny), and every single recipe has at least one beautiful color photo (rare for any cookbook!). But beyond that, I have never owned a cookbook with so many recipes I wanted to try. I would say in the entire book there are maybe 10 that don't interest me at all (with the exception of the brief section on appetizers—I have little interest in cooking apps, so that one didn't wow me as much). Everything else I am super excited to make, and shortly I plan to embark on a Smitten Kitchen cooking extravaganza. This book is so beautiful that I'm a little sad to think of it covered in food spatters and such, but this fate seems inevitable. Seriously amazing book.

    Of course, I recognize that if I haven't cooked anything from this yet I can't truly judge the recipes, so perhaps I'll update this review after I've tried a few. But given Deb Perelman's track record on her website, I'm fully convinced this is going to become one of my best-loved and most-used cookbooks very soon.

    So 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!

    Classic 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.

    i'm a big fan of the blog, although i find some of the recipes to be unnecessarily complicated. but i've cooked two meals from this and they were fairly quick, easy, & tasty, and the photography is also beautiful.

    Gave up about half way through. Been a number of years since I followed her blog but saw this book was out and got it from the library.

    I find her recipes to be complicated, and not practical both in the time required, the materials to assemble and their general ease to make. Not just to actually make the recipes but also to read them. One day, Mom and I plan to make her black bread... one day.
