A New York Times Best Seller

"This is the kind of book you could easily cook out of for a month straight without tiring of it. You could also simply sit down and read it cover-to-cover, thanks to Perelman's honest, funny, and at times charmingly self-deprecating personal anecdotes that introduce each recipe. Where Perelman really shines is in coaxing big flavors out of minimal ingredients. . . . As with her first book, she shot all the photos herself in her own home kitchen, further adding to that sense of aspirational approachability. And really, that's the Smitten Kitchen magic: recipes that are ingeniously creative but so accessible that they leave you thinking, 'Why the hell didn't I think of that?'" --Eater

"Equal parts tongue-in-cheek commentary and measuring instructions, Perelman's style is relatable and fun. Her self-deprecating jokes are enough to make any novice cook feel comforted, and her well-thought-out recipe caveats will impress the most experienced baker. Perelman fills her latest cookbook with pages and pages of 'real recipes for real people, ' as it says on the inside cover. I trust her to give me a great recipe for just about anything, and when a friend gives me a rave review, I tell them, 'Deb hasn't let me down yet.'" --Gabriela Saldivia, NPR

"No one delivers recipes inspired by equal parts curiosity and appetite quite like Smitten Kitchen's Deb Perelman, and [here] she celebrates the 'unfussy but triumphant' recipes that make her . . . really excited to cook and eat. Try getting through the book without flagging the Jam-Bellied Scones, Bacony Baked Pintos with the Works, and Lemon Meringue Pie Smash, and we'll be amazed." --Epicurious

"[The] Smitten Kitchen blog has won fans and followers with its spot-on recipe curation and Perelman's winning prose--she makes you feel like you're her friend. This book is a collection of recipes that, she writes, 'don't just fit into our lives, they make us happy.' Readers can reclaim joy in the kitchen, too, with cauliflower wedge salad, mini-matzo ball soup, tomato and gigante bean bake." --The Boston Globe

"Deb Perelman, the beloved food blogger and author, finally returns with her second book, five years in the making. Taking the name of her popular blog, the book is so much more: Of the cookbook's 115 recipes, 101 are brand new. Each recipe is accompanied by a photograph shot by Deb (as she's simply known to her many followers), herself. . . . It's no wonder this lovely new book took half a decade." --Chicago Tribune

"A tremendously appealing collection of recipes whose headnotes strike chord after rousing chord. Yes, of course I want those Pizza Beans and Pretzel Linzer Cookies. And why have I never heard of Jam-Bellied Bran Scones before--or had the sense to put jam in the belly of any baked good at all?" --Kristen Miglore, Food52

"Filled with fun and easy--but delicious and totally Instagramable--recipes that will have you actually looking forward to hitting the kitchen at the end of a long work day." --Bustle
