"Kathy and Caroline reveal the answer to the often-daunting question of 'what's for dinner tonight?' I encourage everyone--whether a novice or seasoned cook--to explore their kaleidoscopic collection of casual recipes that are sure to satisfy any group of friends or hungry family."--Daniel Boulud

"Skillet Lasagna? Cucumber and Watermelon Salad? Yes, please. Find them in this collection of time-honored, proven dishes--from two former editors of Saveur magazine--that will become your own family classics."--Real Simple

"Any book with an entire section devoted to toast for dinner has my immediate respect. Kathy and Caroline have assembled a weeknight arsenal for home cooks that's inspiring, relatable, and infused with a deep understanding of the realities of family life. Keepers epitomizes the way I strive to cook every night."--Merrill Stubbs, co-founder of Food52

"Keepers is one of the smartest cookbooks to come out in recent years. From techniques learned at the International Culinary Center to daily conversations about 'what's for dinner' at Saveur, these two have put together the modern day go-to cookbook. Brennan and Campion hit the nail on the head, speaking in an honest and helpful way while guiding readers through realistic expectations of weeknight planning and cooking. Anyone from those just starting to cook for themselves to newlyweds trying to find their culinary voice to mothers in a food rut will find Keepers a real keeper."--Dorothy Cann Hamilton, Founder & CEO, The International Culinary Center

"Do you need another book claiming to offer quick weeknight dinners? Well, you need this one. Keepers is highly focused--it's dinner and dinner only, and not one of its recipes will set you back more than 45 minutes. At the same time, these two former Saveur editors make no compromises on taste or quality."--NPR, Best Cookbooks of the Year

"I've been flipping through Brennan and Campion's great new not-too-fussy Keepers for out-of-the-box options. Tomato and Zucchini Gratin looks yummy, or--ooh!--Roasted Acorn Squash with Jalapeño-Lime Butter. . . . I might just have to try both."--People

"The best cookbook you've read all year."--Joanna Goddard, Cup of Jo

"Kathy and Caroline have filled Keepers with practical advice on everything from meal planning (when was the last time a cookbook reminded you to breathe?) to shopping with kids (don't worry, it's awful for them, too). They even give suggestions for families at different stages or with kids of different ages. But my favorite section is 'Lifesavers, ' which is filled with versatile sauces--aka flavor bombs--that can be made ahead, kept in the fridge for up to a week, and make almost anything taste better. Genius."--Cool Mom Picks

"Along with pantry-stocking tips, weekly meal-planning guides, and essential tool checklists, they share recipes, which are, with no surprise because of the title of the book, keepers. These recipes are trusted family and personal recipes, infused with years of experience working in the culinary industry--and later the motherhood industry, too. They're not just delicious, but they're also tested and proved to be easy and indispensable dishes for you to add to your recipe box, making them perfect for a weeknight meal."--The Daily Meal
