Wild Mushrooms Tart Review


Recipe 34 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman I’m not a fan of mushrooms so I was less then excited for this recipe but knew it would probably be a little better then I expected it to be. And I’m glad to say that it was. My feelings for mushrooms haven’t changed but…

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.

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…

Broccoli Slaw Review


Recipe 25 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman And we continue to move along with 4 salads and counting. I was able to get my goal of 2 salads done again this week so if I have my act together we’ll be closing this chapter on salads next week! I’m ready for pizza!!…

Iceberg Stack with Blue Cheese and Radishes Review


Recipe 21 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman This was one of the easiest recipes she’s given me so far and I love a good wedge salad. I think the best I’ve had had candied nuts on it which takes a wedge salad to a whole new level. I miss Johnny Carinos!! The…

Zucchini Ribbons with Almond Pesto Review


Recipe 19 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Yum guys! This recipe is yum. 10 points and all the stars…you’ve got to try this one if you don’t have a nut or almond allergy! The recipe was only a little time consuming with peeling the zucchini into ribbons but other then that the…

Vinegar Slaw with Cucumbers and Dill


Recipe 18 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Okay, folks I’m back at it. February has been a blur and I can’t believe we’re in March this week. I have been wanting to make this slaw to kick off the salad chapter for so long. But I knew we wouldn’t really eat it…
