This is my favorite new cookbook! It's a great combination of weeknight-friendly and impressive. Plus Deb Perelman is utterly likable and a joy to read. I've found several recipes that will be forever repeats, plus there is a whole section called "The Party Cake Builder" that walks you through how to construct the perfect cake/s for any occasion and scale, simply. Plenty of vegetarian and meat options, and filled with great ideas I would never think of on my own. I honestly now do the great majority of my weekly meal planning with Smitten Kitchen!
