Roasted Tomatoes and Cipollini Onions Review


Recipe 47 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman WW Note: This delightful dish is 6 points per 2 slices of bread you enjoy (or do the math for the bread you choose and that will be the basis for your points). If you’re going more carb free then you really only need to…

Heart Stuffed Shells with Lemon Ricotta Bechamel Review


Recipe 42 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman I’m glad to share with you the next recipe in Deb’s Vegetarian Main Dish chapter….because who doesn’t love a stuffed shell pasta! There were lots of ingredients for this recipe but it is a pretty straightforward, non technical dish that is pretty impressive in taste…

Sweet Peas and Shells Alfredo Review


Recipe 40 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Wow, let’s just stop and recognize that I’m 40 recipes in! That’s hard to get my head around. Have I really made that many?? Crazy. I checked today and I’m just a few recipes away from being half way through the cookbook. I also noticed…

Gnocchi in Tomato Broth Review


Recipe 39 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman I am very proud of this little dish! I was really nervous making gnocchi because it seems hard but Deb does a very kind job of encouraging her readers to understand it has been made out to be a tad more complicated then they may…

Eggplant and Three Cheese Calzone Review


Recipe 38 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman This is a wrap on the sandwich, tart and pizza chapter and I’m pretty sad about it!

Butternut Squash and Caramelized Onion Galette Review


Recipe 35 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Apologies for the radio silence. I’ve been slowly recovering with normal cooking since the beginning of the month.

Emmentaler on Rye with Sweet and Sour Red Onions Review


Recipe 31 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman This was a delightfully delicious yet simple sandwich to make. I’m always appreciative of recipes that allow me to cook at my own pace versus be on an quick time table because cooking with a kiddo means there’s no predictability as to when your attention…

Chicken and Egg Salad “Toasts” with Lemon Aioli & Fennel Review


Recipe 30 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Let’s start off by saying this is not a good representation of Deb’s recipe. I failed tragically and what you see here is a fancy chicken salad sandwich…not toast. My husband oohed and ahhhed over it but it really is just a salvage of the…

Roasted Baby Root Salad with Sherry-Shallot Vinaigrette Review


Recipe 27 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Sorry to those subscribers who may have gotten an undone post in their inbox about an hour ago! My slippery fingers got the best of me. You’ll have to wait for the details on that one because I’m not good at going out of order….

Cranberry Bean Salad with Feta and Walnuts Review


Recipe 26 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Okay, I sadly found a salad recipe that I’m not a big fan of, but I’m assuming it’s because I cut a couple corners and didn’t totally stick to the recipe. The recipe of course calls for cranberry beans but I had a hard time…
