Ratatouille Subs


Recipe 32 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Wow was this a killer recipe! We just gobbled it right up and I’m trying to figure out when I can make it again!! The veggies in this were so well flavored and came together so deliciously with the buttery bread. It’s truly craveable! I…

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…

Avocado Tartine with Cucumber and Sesame Seeds


Recipe 29 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman I’m back! Sorry for the hiatus but moving kind of puts life on hold until you can push play again. I’m so glad to be back and cooking real food! We lived on a lot of delivery and take out that last 2 weeks before…

Honey and Harissa Farro Salad


Recipe 28 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman This is it people…the very last salad from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook! And it was a really tasty finale.

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…

Sugar Snap Salad with Miso Dressing Recipe Review


Recipe 24 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Rounding the corner this week is salad recipe number 2 and another winner for the Mays. A little more prep on this salad with the chopping and blanching of the peas but if you’ve got time to chop, this guy will hold up well even…

Kale Salad with Cherries and Pecans Review


Recipe 23 from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman Believe it or not I’m actually flying through the salad chapter. I have my 2 salads for this week done which means I have 4 more to go! My husband and I have enjoyed so many of these salads on the side of whatever I…

Iceberg Stack with Blue Cheese and Radishes


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


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…
