The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook

My favourite cooking website is, without a doubt, the Smitten Kitchen blog. Deb Perelman’s posts are hilarious and easy to read and she does not take herself too seriously. Just the kind of person I would love to take cooking tips from. You might have noticed that Courtney and I have started linking to Deb’s post lately (and those brownies are really the best ever).

This morning I received the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook in my mailbox and it made my day (is it a sign of the times that a cookbook can make my day?). I have to admit that I am one of those old-fashioned girls who likes to have a book rather than a computer in the kitchen. This is possibly due to the fact that I have a tendency to get flour and butter onto the computer, which is just not a good idea. I cannot wait to try out the recipes and will definitely share my favourites with you!

I’ve just received the American version and it’s a fabulous book. Not just for the recipes (which are all amazing), but the narrative too. A really, lovely read. It was very frustrating to see the UK release delayed, but I would say it will be well worth the wait.
