In HFD’s series Get Cookin’, we share highly-reviewed cookbooks by chefs you know and others you may not.
Deb Perelman is a recipe blogger best known for simple and delicious. “I don’t do truffle oil, Himalayan pink salt at $10 per quarter-ounce or single-origin chocolate that can only be found through Posh Nosh-approved purveyors,” she writes on her popular blog, Smitten Kitchen. Deb affirms this philosophy in Smitten Kitchen Every Day, the second in her SK cookbook series.
But rather than watering down recipes to save a little time, Deb balances ease with the extra steps that take a dish from yum to YUM-O. Recipes range from meatballs marsala with buttered egg noodles to street cart-style chicken and rice to a grandma-style chicken noodle soup. So if you have 30 minutes instead of 20 to whip up a meal, Smitten Kitchen Every Day may be the book for you!
Here’s a recipe to try!
We love a good butter cookie, and Deb’s bakery-style option seems too doable not to try. This recipe includes all the standard ingredients (e.g., butter, sugar, salt, eggs, flour, and vanilla extract) measured, mixed, and baked just right to create the cookie you crave. Think about it: you’re only 60 minutes and a bowl of sprinkles away from the below. [Get Recipe]
