    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 ...

    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 ea...

    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 a...

    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...

    I don't think I had ever read a cookbook cover-to-cover before this one, but Deb Perelman's book is as addictive as her blog. I want to make EVERYTHING but so far have only made the 'sweet peas and shells alfredo,' which were easy and delicious. This is really everything a good cookboo...

    Completely drool-worthy. Good clear instructions. Wonderful large color photos. Off to make beer braised short ribs right this second. Don't try and stop me. ...

    I love this cookbook and read it like a novel in one evening. I love the little blurbs at the beginning of each recipe and the photography is gorgeous. ...

    I have been following the smitten kitchen blog for years and have made several of Deb Perelman's recipes, a few of which have become staples in our house?mushroom bourguignon, roast chicken with dijon sauce, lemony zucchini goat cheese pizza?and I can't wait to dig in to even more ...

    So many great recipes in this book! And bizarrely, the ones that caught my eye were all savories, and mostly salads, at that. The chocolate brioche pretzels look amazing, though. Wonderfully put together with a great blend of pictures and recipes and a little blurb of text for each ...

    What a gorgeous book from one of my favorite bloggers (who also happens to be one of my favorite sources for awesome recipes)! I was thrilled when I heard that she would be putting out a cookbook, and this truly lived up to my expectations. There are photos and notes and chatty introdu...

    I won this cookbook as a Goodreads giveaway and I was so excited! I follow Deb's blog, The Smitten Kitchen and to have all of her best recipes at my fingertips is just amazing. I cannot wait to make all of her scrumptious creations, especially the hazelnut crepe cake! Definitely not a ...

    I had been anxiously awaiting this, and Deb Perelman did not disappoint. I read (devoured?) the recipes cover to cover, and could hardly keep myself from pulling out every pot and pan in the kitchen to try them all immediately. As expected, gorgeous photographs and clear, encouraging d...

    The "Smitten Kitchen" blog was mentioned in passing in an article I read somewhere online. I checked it out half out of curiosity, half out of an aquisitive desire for a larger stock of relatively simple recipes. I was impressed enough with what I saw to buy this, the author's first co...

    What a lovely cookbook, full of delicious recipes that for the most part, aren't too daunting. There are headnotes and color photos for every recipe, and the book is divided into several sections - including two for mains, meat and veggie - and she has some great info at the start of t...

    This is a Goodreads First Reads review. This is a great collection of recipes brought together with a warm sense of humor. The recipes are well laid out and the ingredients list shows the measurements in both imperial and metric, something that is not often done. Her goal is just to...

    I'm in love with this cookbook! Deb's recipes aren't so advanced to be intimidating to a new cook, like me, but are complex enough so that I'm learning something new with each one. There's a really great array of main dishes (vegetarian and not), appetizers, sweets, breakfasts, sandwic...

    I love this cookbook. A good variety of classics, variations on classics, and interesting new ideas. Ranges in level of difficulty - this is not geared for people who never cook, but they could figure it out if they needed to - and for those of us who cook often, it's not oversimplifie...

    There is nothing in here that I don't want to eat. Deb Perelman has even talked me into the recipes I was initially unsure of. She is such an engaging writer! I can't wait to get cracking on some of these delicious dishes post-Thanksgiving. ...

    Recipes sometimes complicated, sometimes simple, all delicious. ...

    Why yes, I did basically read this cover to cover. Can't wait to make so many of these recipes! ...

    Deb's blog is lovely, as are all of the recipes I've tried - not one bad apple in the pile! This cookbook looks like one delight after another, and I can't wait to get started. ...

    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 ...

    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 a...

    What a lovely cookbook, full of delicious recipes that for the most part, aren't too daunting. There are headnotes and color photos for every recipe, and the book is divided into several sections - including two for mains, meat and veggie - and she has some great info at the start of t...

    This is a Goodreads First Reads review. This is a great collection of recipes brought together with a warm sense of humor. The recipes are well laid out and the ingredients list shows the measurements in both imperial and metric, something that is not often done. Her goal is just to...

    I'm in love with this cookbook! Deb's recipes aren't so advanced to be intimidating to a new cook, like me, but are complex enough so that I'm learning something new with each one. There's a really great array of main dishes (vegetarian and not), appetizers, sweets, breakfasts, sandwic...

    I love this cookbook. A good variety of classics, variations on classics, and interesting new ideas. Ranges in level of difficulty - this is not geared for people who never cook, but they could figure it out if they needed to - and for those of us who cook often, it's not oversimplifie...

    I am a baker at Zomick's bakery and must give this cookbook 5 star. That is not because I found recipes I could prepare, but gave me an interesting idea for some old traditional challah recipes I could restructure. If you are into cooking get this one and you'll have plenty of interest...

    I have never been so entertained by a cookbook! Not only do I want to cook 90% of Deb's recipes (popcorn cookies? I am so there), but her wit, charm, and humor come through every recipe description. I plan to be a dedicated blog follower after working my way through her recipes! ...

    Beautiful book from one of the world's most popular food bloggers. Stunning photography and 100 innovative yet comforting dishes. See my full review here - http://livinginthekitchenwithpuppies.... ...

    There is nothing in here that I don't want to eat. Deb Perelman has even talked me into the recipes I was initially unsure of. She is such an engaging writer! I can't wait to get cracking on some of these delicious dishes post-Thanksgiving. ...

    Recipes sometimes complicated, sometimes simple, all delicious. ...

    Why yes, I did basically read this cover to cover. Can't wait to make so many of these recipes! ...

    Deb's blog is lovely, as are all of the recipes I've tried - not one bad apple in the pile! This cookbook looks like one delight after another, and I can't wait to get started. ...

    Love this cookbook. I want to make the emmentaler on rye with sweet and sour red onions right now! It looks like French onion soup in sandwich form! ...

    I wasn't impressed with the cookbook. I've used recipes from her website that have made their way into the family favorites rotation, so I had high hopes for the book. Not so much ...

    Love this! This book makes me laugh, makes me want to cook and makes me happy. Beautiful photography and great writing. So glad I'll be meeting the author at a signing event later this month! ...

    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 ...

    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 ea...

    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 a...

    I won this cookbook as a Goodreads giveaway and I was so excited! I follow Deb's blog, The Smitten Kitchen and to have all of her best recipes at my fingertips is just amazing. I cannot wait to make all of her scrumptious creations, especially the hazelnut crepe cake! Definitely not a ...

    I had been anxiously awaiting this, and Deb Perelman did not disappoint. I read (devoured?) the recipes cover to cover, and could hardly keep myself from pulling out every pot and pan in the kitchen to try them all immediately. As expected, gorgeous photographs and clear, encouraging d...

    Deb Perelman is the creator of The Smitten Kitchen, a fabulous blog on food and her cooking shenanigans in New York City. This blog (and now book are fabulous if you like pictures of different steps during food prep. Like The Pioneer Woman, Perelman is also a photographer. The pictures...

    What a lovely cookbook, full of delicious recipes that for the most part, aren't too daunting. There are headnotes and color photos for every recipe, and the book is divided into several sections - including two for mains, meat and veggie - and she has some great info at the start of t...

    This is a Goodreads First Reads review. This is a great collection of recipes brought together with a warm sense of humor. The recipes are well laid out and the ingredients list shows the measurements in both imperial and metric, something that is not often done. Her goal is just to...

    I'm in love with this cookbook! Deb's recipes aren't so advanced to be intimidating to a new cook, like me, but are complex enough so that I'm learning something new with each one. There's a really great array of main dishes (vegetarian and not), appetizers, sweets, breakfasts, sandwic...

    I love this cookbook. A good variety of classics, variations on classics, and interesting new ideas. Ranges in level of difficulty - this is not geared for people who never cook, but they could figure it out if they needed to - and for those of us who cook often, it's not oversimplifie...

    I am a baker at Zomick's bakery and must give this cookbook 5 star. That is not because I found recipes I could prepare, but gave me an interesting idea for some old traditional challah recipes I could restructure. If you are into cooking get this one and you'll have plenty of interest...

    I have never been so entertained by a cookbook! Not only do I want to cook 90% of Deb's recipes (popcorn cookies? I am so there), but her wit, charm, and humor come through every recipe description. I plan to be a dedicated blog follower after working my way through her recipes! ...

    Beautiful book from one of the world's most popular food bloggers. Stunning photography and 100 innovative yet comforting dishes. See my full review here - http://livinginthekitchenwithpuppies.... ...

    There is nothing in here that I don't want to eat. Deb Perelman has even talked me into the recipes I was initially unsure of. She is such an engaging writer! I can't wait to get cracking on some of these delicious dishes post-Thanksgiving. ...

    Recipes sometimes complicated, sometimes simple, all delicious. ...

    Why yes, I did basically read this cover to cover. Can't wait to make so many of these recipes! ...

    Deb's blog is lovely, as are all of the recipes I've tried - not one bad apple in the pile! This cookbook looks like one delight after another, and I can't wait to get started. ...

    Love this cookbook. I want to make the emmentaler on rye with sweet and sour red onions right now! It looks like French onion soup in sandwich form! ...

    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 ...

    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 ea...

    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 a...

    I don't think I had ever read a cookbook cover-to-cover before this one, but Deb Perelman's book is as addictive as her blog. I want to make EVERYTHING but so far have only made the 'sweet peas and shells alfredo,' which were easy and delicious. This is really everything a good cookboo...

    Completely drool-worthy. Good clear instructions. Wonderful large color photos. Off to make beer braised short ribs right this second. Don't try and stop me. ...

    I love this cookbook and read it like a novel in one evening. I love the little blurbs at the beginning of each recipe and the photography is gorgeous. ...

    I have been following the smitten kitchen blog for years and have made several of Deb Perelman's recipes, a few of which have become staples in our house?mushroom bourguignon, roast chicken with dijon sauce, lemony zucchini goat cheese pizza?and I can't wait to dig in to even more ...

    So many great recipes in this book! And bizarrely, the ones that caught my eye were all savories, and mostly salads, at that. The chocolate brioche pretzels look amazing, though. Wonderfully put together with a great blend of pictures and recipes and a little blurb of text for each ...

    What a gorgeous book from one of my favorite bloggers (who also happens to be one of my favorite sources for awesome recipes)! I was thrilled when I heard that she would be putting out a cookbook, and this truly lived up to my expectations. There are photos and notes and chatty introdu...

    I won this cookbook as a Goodreads giveaway and I was so excited! I follow Deb's blog, The Smitten Kitchen and to have all of her best recipes at my fingertips is just amazing. I cannot wait to make all of her scrumptious creations, especially the hazelnut crepe cake! Definitely not a ...
