For Your Library: The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook

May  4, 2012

Today, we bring you an announcement. (Drumroll, please.) Deb Perelman’s new book, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, is now available for pre-order!

If you’re a follower of her hilarious, recipe-driven blog, (and if you’re not, you should be), you’ll soon be able to keep her recipe collection constantly open for easy reference and inspiration on your counter. Literally, constantly open: her new book has lay-flat binding, which means it will stay open without bags of flour weighing the springy pages down into submission. How genius.

Shop the Story

Her new book is comprised of over 100 recipes for things like buttered popcorn cookies and tomato shortcakes, organized by meal. (Though I’m sure she wouldn’t mind if you ate those cookies for breakfast.) If that doesn’t sell you, almost every recipe is new – so even if you have been an avid reader of her blog, you won’t run into much repetition.

And just so you don’t leave hungry, she ends the announcement with one of her favorite breakfast recipes from the book.  She thinks of everything.

I have a thing for most foods topped with a fried egg, a strange disdain for overly soupy tomato sauce, and I can never make it home without ripping off the end of a newly-bought baguette. I like spoons very much.

Because of this article, I just bought Pillivuyt Patisserie Cake Platter for rumah dijual! We loved it!
