Smitten Kitchen Every Day: Triumphant and Unfussy New Favorites Reviews

    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 The Smitten Kit...

    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 j...

    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. ...

    Not really any recipes that appealed to me & definitely none that could be useful as an add on to my day to day meals. Just too over the top for my tastes. ...

    Lovely photographs accompany each recipe - which is strictly essential for me as a very visual person - along with a brief description of how Perelman came to try it, recreate it, or some other personal note. Usually these anecdotes and cook's notes are easily skipped over, but I found...

    This cookbook is a winner for sure. I enjoy Perelman's anecdotes about cooking and eating, and her photography is killer. But for a cookbook to get my approval, the recipes have to be solid. We have cooked and enjoyed many from this book already, and will return again and again to thes...

    PROS: - pictures of every recipe - for the same reason i've loved her blog for the last 8 years i've been a reader - i feel like i'm reading recipes written by a friend, i love the narration in her recipe intros - pictures of every recipe!!!! - lots of cool vegetarian mains - wo...

    Oh yeah. I was leaning toward buying this one without looking at it first, because Smitten Kitchen, but then once I started drooling over the photos and descriptions I knew it had to be part of my collection. Then, to my amazement, I discovered that I'd made one of these recipes (choco...

    I think this is a great book; I marked several recipes to try in the weeks to come, including a mouthwatering artichoke parmesan galette, a carrot miso dressing I hope is like the one I loved in Seattle, and a potato-asparagus salad with gribiche. I don't know that I will seek to buy a...

    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. ...

    Um, awesome. With simple, but nicely elevated meals, I can cook to please all the fussy folks in my life, but still have the flavor I crave. And I just tried out three recipes this week. All winners. As usual. Thanks, Deb. ...

    oh so awesome, easy, and inspiring. I love Smitten Kitchen! ...

    I love her blog, but I can't imagine making these recipes for "every day." ...

    Love her recipes and am signed up for her email newsletter. She is one of my top go to chefs. ...

    I checked out Smitten Kitchen Every Day from our wonderful King County Library System. I confess I have never read (watched??) The Smitten Kitchen, but my dear sister is a fan so I expected to love this book. I did not. I feel Smitten Kitchen Every Day is just too pretentious by ha...

    A beautiful book with some delicious looking recipes. Just...if I'm being honest...though it was subtitled "unfussy new favourites", I personally need a cookbook that's a little more simple/unfussy. ...

    I got this from the library twice, and now it's time to send it back and buy my own copy. I was disappointed by Perelman's first cookbook despite absolutely loving her Smitten Kitchen blog, but this cookbook was a much better fit for both my own and my family's eating habits. We're veg...

    I won a print copy of this book from a Goodreads Giveaway This cook book is awesome, my mother loved it too :D We cooked today two recipes, very easy to follow and also the ingredients easy to find. One of the things that I really it about the book is that in the beggining of each ...

    Majority of recipes are delicious and worth the effort to make, though I?m not sure they?re truly ?every day? meals. I have one young child and it was a challenge to prep some of these dishes around his nap/eating/play schedule. ...

    I loved her first cookbook, and now I have picked several recipes to try in this new cookbook, though most are of the unhealthy variety I would have to say. But sometimes special occasions demand throwing caution to the wind! A fun cookbook to read and look at, for sure! ...

    I love Deb Perelman's voice and writing, and this was a lovely cookbook to read--each recipe intro is funny and warm, and the photos are beautiful. When it comes right down to it, though, there's only a few recipes I really want to try. ...

    Very simple but versatile dishes. Especially, the salads are amazing! ...

    Every recipe I've made from this cookbook has been stellar. The tomato soup and spaghetti pangrattato are my two favourites so far. 5/5 ...

    Some really good takeaway recipes here. ...

    Only a handful of recipes in this one excite me... I love her blog though and it?s still a beautiful cookbook - every recipe has a photo! ...

    I checked out Smitten Kitchen Every Day from our wonderful King County Library System. I confess I have never read (watched??) The Smitten Kitchen, but my dear sister is a fan so I expected to love this book. I did not. I feel Smitten Kitchen Every Day is just too pretentious by ha...

    A beautiful book with some delicious looking recipes. Just...if I'm being honest...though it was subtitled "unfussy new favourites", I personally need a cookbook that's a little more simple/unfussy. ...

    I got this from the library twice, and now it's time to send it back and buy my own copy. I was disappointed by Perelman's first cookbook despite absolutely loving her Smitten Kitchen blog, but this cookbook was a much better fit for both my own and my family's eating habits. We're veg...

    I won a print copy of this book from a Goodreads Giveaway This cook book is awesome, my mother loved it too :D We cooked today two recipes, very easy to follow and also the ingredients easy to find. One of the things that I really it about the book is that in the beggining of each ...

    Majority of recipes are delicious and worth the effort to make, though I?m not sure they?re truly ?every day? meals. I have one young child and it was a challenge to prep some of these dishes around his nap/eating/play schedule. ...

    I loved her first cookbook, and now I have picked several recipes to try in this new cookbook, though most are of the unhealthy variety I would have to say. But sometimes special occasions demand throwing caution to the wind! A fun cookbook to read and look at, for sure! ...

    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 The Smitten Kit...

    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 j...

    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. ...

    Not really any recipes that appealed to me & definitely none that could be useful as an add on to my day to day meals. Just too over the top for my tastes. ...

    Lovely photographs accompany each recipe - which is strictly essential for me as a very visual person - along with a brief description of how Perelman came to try it, recreate it, or some other personal note. Usually these anecdotes and cook's notes are easily skipped over, but I found...

    This cookbook is a winner for sure. I enjoy Perelman's anecdotes about cooking and eating, and her photography is killer. But for a cookbook to get my approval, the recipes have to be solid. We have cooked and enjoyed many from this book already, and will return again and again to thes...

    PROS: - pictures of every recipe - for the same reason i've loved her blog for the last 8 years i've been a reader - i feel like i'm reading recipes written by a friend, i love the narration in her recipe intros - pictures of every recipe!!!! - lots of cool vegetarian mains - wo...

    Oh yeah. I was leaning toward buying this one without looking at it first, because Smitten Kitchen, but then once I started drooling over the photos and descriptions I knew it had to be part of my collection. Then, to my amazement, I discovered that I'd made one of these recipes (choco...

    I think this is a great book; I marked several recipes to try in the weeks to come, including a mouthwatering artichoke parmesan galette, a carrot miso dressing I hope is like the one I loved in Seattle, and a potato-asparagus salad with gribiche. I don't know that I will seek to buy a...

    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. ...

    Um, awesome. With simple, but nicely elevated meals, I can cook to please all the fussy folks in my life, but still have the flavor I crave. And I just tried out three recipes this week. All winners. As usual. Thanks, Deb. ...

    oh so awesome, easy, and inspiring. I love Smitten Kitchen! ...

    Every recipe I've made from this cookbook has been stellar. The tomato soup and spaghetti pangrattato are my two favourites so far. 5/5 ...

    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 The Smitten Kit...

    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 j...

    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. ...

    Not really any recipes that appealed to me & definitely none that could be useful as an add on to my day to day meals. Just too over the top for my tastes. ...

    Lovely photographs accompany each recipe - which is strictly essential for me as a very visual person - along with a brief description of how Perelman came to try it, recreate it, or some other personal note. Usually these anecdotes and cook's notes are easily skipped over, but I found...

    This cookbook is a winner for sure. I enjoy Perelman's anecdotes about cooking and eating, and her photography is killer. But for a cookbook to get my approval, the recipes have to be solid. We have cooked and enjoyed many from this book already, and will return again and again to thes...

    PROS: - pictures of every recipe - for the same reason i've loved her blog for the last 8 years i've been a reader - i feel like i'm reading recipes written by a friend, i love the narration in her recipe intros - pictures of every recipe!!!! - lots of cool vegetarian mains - wo...

    Oh yeah. I was leaning toward buying this one without looking at it first, because Smitten Kitchen, but then once I started drooling over the photos and descriptions I knew it had to be part of my collection. Then, to my amazement, I discovered that I'd made one of these recipes (choco...

    I think this is a great book; I marked several recipes to try in the weeks to come, including a mouthwatering artichoke parmesan galette, a carrot miso dressing I hope is like the one I loved in Seattle, and a potato-asparagus salad with gribiche. I don't know that I will seek to buy a...

    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. ...

    Um, awesome. With simple, but nicely elevated meals, I can cook to please all the fussy folks in my life, but still have the flavor I crave. And I just tried out three recipes this week. All winners. As usual. Thanks, Deb. ...

    oh so awesome, easy, and inspiring. I love Smitten Kitchen! ...

    I love her blog, but I can't imagine making these recipes for "every day." ...

    Love her recipes and am signed up for her email newsletter. She is one of my top go to chefs. ...

    I checked out Smitten Kitchen Every Day from our wonderful King County Library System. I confess I have never read (watched??) The Smitten Kitchen, but my dear sister is a fan so I expected to love this book. I did not. I feel Smitten Kitchen Every Day is just too pretentious by ha...

    A beautiful book with some delicious looking recipes. Just...if I'm being honest...though it was subtitled "unfussy new favourites", I personally need a cookbook that's a little more simple/unfussy. ...

    I got this from the library twice, and now it's time to send it back and buy my own copy. I was disappointed by Perelman's first cookbook despite absolutely loving her Smitten Kitchen blog, but this cookbook was a much better fit for both my own and my family's eating habits. We're veg...

    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 The Smitten Kit...

    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 j...

    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. ...

    Not really any recipes that appealed to me & definitely none that could be useful as an add on to my day to day meals. Just too over the top for my tastes. ...

    Lovely photographs accompany each recipe - which is strictly essential for me as a very visual person - along with a brief description of how Perelman came to try it, recreate it, or some other personal note. Usually these anecdotes and cook's notes are easily skipped over, but I found...

    This cookbook is a winner for sure. I enjoy Perelman's anecdotes about cooking and eating, and her photography is killer. But for a cookbook to get my approval, the recipes have to be solid. We have cooked and enjoyed many from this book already, and will return again and again to thes...

    PROS: - pictures of every recipe - for the same reason i've loved her blog for the last 8 years i've been a reader - i feel like i'm reading recipes written by a friend, i love the narration in her recipe intros - pictures of every recipe!!!! - lots of cool vegetarian mains - wo...

    Oh yeah. I was leaning toward buying this one without looking at it first, because Smitten Kitchen, but then once I started drooling over the photos and descriptions I knew it had to be part of my collection. Then, to my amazement, I discovered that I'd made one of these recipes (choco...

    I think this is a great book; I marked several recipes to try in the weeks to come, including a mouthwatering artichoke parmesan galette, a carrot miso dressing I hope is like the one I loved in Seattle, and a potato-asparagus salad with gribiche. I don't know that I will seek to buy a...

    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. ...

    Um, awesome. With simple, but nicely elevated meals, I can cook to please all the fussy folks in my life, but still have the flavor I crave. And I just tried out three recipes this week. All winners. As usual. Thanks, Deb. ...

    oh so awesome, easy, and inspiring. I love Smitten Kitchen! ...

    I love her blog, but I can't imagine making these recipes for "every day." ...

    Love her recipes and am signed up for her email newsletter. She is one of my top go to chefs. ...

    I checked out Smitten Kitchen Every Day from our wonderful King County Library System. I confess I have never read (watched??) The Smitten Kitchen, but my dear sister is a fan so I expected to love this book. I did not. I feel Smitten Kitchen Every Day is just too pretentious by ha...

    A beautiful book with some delicious looking recipes. Just...if I'm being honest...though it was subtitled "unfussy new favourites", I personally need a cookbook that's a little more simple/unfussy. ...

    I got this from the library twice, and now it's time to send it back and buy my own copy. I was disappointed by Perelman's first cookbook despite absolutely loving her Smitten Kitchen blog, but this cookbook was a much better fit for both my own and my family's eating habits. We're veg...

    I won a print copy of this book from a Goodreads Giveaway This cook book is awesome, my mother loved it too :D We cooked today two recipes, very easy to follow and also the ingredients easy to find. One of the things that I really it about the book is that in the beggining of each ...

    Majority of recipes are delicious and worth the effort to make, though I?m not sure they?re truly ?every day? meals. I have one young child and it was a challenge to prep some of these dishes around his nap/eating/play schedule. ...

    I loved her first cookbook, and now I have picked several recipes to try in this new cookbook, though most are of the unhealthy variety I would have to say. But sometimes special occasions demand throwing caution to the wind! A fun cookbook to read and look at, for sure! ...

    I love Deb Perelman's voice and writing, and this was a lovely cookbook to read--each recipe intro is funny and warm, and the photos are beautiful. When it comes right down to it, though, there's only a few recipes I really want to try. ...

    Very simple but versatile dishes. Especially, the salads are amazing! ...

    Every recipe I've made from this cookbook has been stellar. The tomato soup and spaghetti pangrattato are my two favourites so far. 5/5 ...

    Some really good takeaway recipes here. ...

    Only a handful of recipes in this one excite me... I love her blog though and it?s still a beautiful cookbook - every recipe has a photo! ...

    This cookbook has lots of different recipes that look amazing. I like that there is a picture of every recipe!! ...

    I want to make so many things! ...
