Triumphant and Unfussy New Favorites: A Cookbook
Borrow Borrow
NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLERFrom the best-selling author of The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook—this everyday cookbook is “filled with fun and easy ... recipes that will have you actually looking forward to hitting the kitchen at the end of a long work day” (Bustle).
A happy discovery in the kitchen has the ability to completely change the course of your day. Whether we’re cooking for ourselves, for a date night in, for a Sunday supper with friends, or for family on a busy weeknight, we all want recipes that are unfussy to make with triumphant results.
Deb Perelman, award-winning blogger, thinks that cooking should be an escape from drudgery. Smitten Kitchen Every Day: Triumphant and Unfussy New Favorites presents more than one hundred impossible-to-resist recipes—almost all of them brand-new, plus a few favorites from her website—that will make you want to stop what you’re doing right now and cook. These are real recipes for real people—people with busy lives who don’t want to sacrifice flavor or quality to eat meals they’re really excited about.
You’ll want to put these recipes in your Forever Files: Sticky Toffee Waffles (sticky toffee pudding you can eat for breakfast), Everything Drop Biscuits with Cream Cheese, and Magical Two-Ingredient Oat Brittle (a happy accident). There’s a (hopelessly, unapologetically inauthentic) Kale Caesar with Broken Eggs and Crushed Croutons, a Mango Apple Ceviche with Sunflower Seeds, and a Grandma-Style Chicken Noodle Soup that fixes everything. You can make Leek, Feta, and Greens Spiral Pie, crunchy Brussels and Three Cheese Pasta Bake that tastes better with brussels sprouts than without, Beefsteak Skirt Steak Salad, and Bacony Baked Pintos with the Works (as in, giant bowls of beans that you can dip into like nachos).
And, of course, no meal is complete without cake (and cookies and pies and puddings): Chocolate Peanut Butter Icebox Cake (the icebox cake to end all icebox cakes), Pretzel Linzers with Salted Caramel, Strawberry Cloud Cookies, Bake Sale Winning-est Gooey Oat Bars, as well as the ultimate Party Cake Builder—four one-bowl cakes for all occasions with mix-and-match frostings (bonus: less time spent doing dishes means everybody wins).
Written with Deb’s trademark humor and gorgeously illustrated with her own photographs, Smitten Kitchen Every Day is filled with what are sure to be your new favorite things to cook.

Excerpts-
  • From the book against drudgery

    (or, hooray for breakfast, dinner, and cake)

    One of the delights of life is eating with friends; second to that is talking about eating. And, for an unsurpassed double whammy, there is talking about eating while you are eating with friends. People who like to cook like to talk about food. Plain old cooks (as opposed to geniuses in fancy restaurants) tend to be friendly. After all, without one cook giving another cook a tip or two, human life might have died out a long time ago. —laurie colwin, Home Cooking

    We home cooks have never gathered in force to speak out in defense of home cooking. So the image of cookery as drudgery lives on. —marion cunningham, Lost Recipes

    This isn’t the cookbook I had expected to write.

    When The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook headed to the printer in 2012, we were a family of three. Our two-year-old was eating table food, but in a dabbling way. Mostly, I cooked the food that I was excited to eat and little about having a kid changed how I went about it. In the years since, we’ve added another delicious little human to our family and while most people will tell you that going from 0 kids to 1 is the big adjustment, in the kitchen, the shift from 1 to 2 was more dramatic. All of a sudden, it wasn’t just us plus an extra half-portion stripped of offending chile peppers or with some couscous on the side to bait a suspicious toddler to the table. Quickly, half our family (ahem, the noisier half) needed square meals at predictable times and I, well . . . ​I began to understand why not everyone jumps with joy when it’s time to make dinner.

    On any given night, most of us have countless really excellent reasons not to cook—be it picky kids, spouses, or roommates, or the extinction of a 9-to-5 workday that might actually get you home in time to assemble dinner for yourself, your friends, or your family. Even the people who are ostensibly cheering for you to cook can do more harm than good, be they restaurant chefs who forget you may not have a line of prep cooks at your disposal, recipe writers who alienate the budget-conscious by insisting on the “best” olive oil, or home-cooking advocates who tell you the very best thing you can do for your health/your children’s IQ/the economy/environment/nothing short of this earth (oh, the pressure!) is cook dinner every night—people who have clearly not spent a lot of time in the chaos of most households at Hangry O’Clock. (Roughly, 30 minutes after pizza would have been there already, at least around here.)

    I began to wonder if it was time to write about the realities and practicalities of cooking. You know:

    •How to Keep the Joy in Cooking

    •42-ish Minute Meals (But You’ll Have to Rush)

    •Things to Make with Broccoli and/or Sweet Potatoes, the Only Vegetables Everyone Agrees on This Week

    •Just Kidding, the Baby Ate Blueberries for Dinner Again

    There was only one problem: I didn’t want to write this book at all. And so I did not. I continued sharing new recipes a couple times a week on my website, Smitten Kitchen. I launched a newsletter. I worked with people to usher the technology behind my site into its second decade of web life. I started working with the Food Network on a digital series. I spent a lot of time around the table with friends and family and couldn’t help but notice that what was regularly taking place—telling stories, workshopping silly armchair philosophies, cracking up over the baby’s antics—barely resembled the compromised, plodding...

    Starred review from August 7, 2017
    Blogger and cookbook author Perelman (The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook) found she had to modify her approach to mealtime to accommodate a young, hungry family. This cookbook is her attempt to inspire herself and others to take a relaxed yet celebratory approach to feeding our families. The result is a joyous cookbook filled with delectable, creative possibilities for every meal. Main-dish recipes include miso maple ribs with roasted scallions; chicken and rice, street-cart style; and meatballs marsala with egg noodles. Even salads, the afterthought of many a meal, are given some sparkle with options such as a smashed cucumber salad with salted peanuts and wasabi peas and a Sushi Takeout Cobb Salad finished with the carrot-based dressing made famous in American sushi restaurants. Vegetarians and omnivores alike will be tempted by the vegetable-centric main dishes Perelman offers, which include a Parmesan Dutch Baby (pancake) with creamed mushrooms, dry-rub sweet potato steaks with green bean slaw, and an artichoke and Parmesan galette. Desserts are Perelman’s forte and her recipes include a chocolate pecan slab pie, a chocolate peanut butter ice box cake, and a brilliant primer for creating party cakes for any occasion. Perelman’s latest is packed with tempting, well-written recipes that promise delicious meals for the whole family. Agent: Alison Fargis, Stonesong.

    Starred review from August 1, 2017
    Little food blog that could (and did), The Smitten Kitchen has been delighting a faithful and growing audience for more than 10 years, and author Perelman manages to improve upon her wonderful first cookbook, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook (2012), in her second. After having a second child, Perelman began to understand why not everyone jumps with joy when it's time to make dinner. Thus, these recipes are meant to minimize home cooks' strife and maximize the enjoyment they can share with appreciative others. In her introduction and the narrative lead-ins for each recipe, Perelman showcases her fine, friendly writing; her approach to perfecting and inventing foolproof recipes; and her self-effacing charm (no, the recipe she found online for smeteneh kuchen was not a shout-out to her, embarrassingly enough, but a great cake results). Some 100+ recipes for all the day's meals include salads, soups, main dishes that are more vegetarian than not, and plenty of treats. Measurements in both weight and volume and a guide to mixing and matching elements for a quickly made special-occasion cake are especially useful. With Perelman's signature photos, this is one to enjoy cover to cover.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
