These recipes are like something you'd find in your grandmother's top-secret cookbook. They are made from scratch, with all-natural ingredients, no shortcuts, no pre-made mixes, etc. This doesn't make it a super light or particularly "healthy" cookbook, however. When making the apple cake, for instance, I was shocked that it called for two full cups and five tablespoons of sugar (eek)! Yes, I know it's a dessert and these usually have a lot of sugar in them, but I guess I was secretly hoping I could make everything in here and not worry about my kids eating too much of something. On that note, the author does list a few substitutions you can make in the beginning of the book to make the recipes healthier, as well as vegetarian variations throughout the book.

Here is a count of the recipes per category:

17 Breakfast items
11 Salads
13 Sandwiches, Tarts & Pizzas
13 Vegetarian Main Dishes
12 Seafood, Poultry & Meat dishes
8 Cookies
8 Pies and tarts
9 Cakes
5 Puddings and Candy
10 Party Snacks and Drinks

The PROS:
* Recipes are categorized very well.
* Ingredients needed are easy to find and usually inexpensive. They are also REAL ingredients, so you're pretty much making everything from scratch. Nothing with weird chemicals in the label.
* The author includes a clever/funny/witty/entertaining short story before each recipe that gives some history/insight into how she acquired the recipe or how she came up with it.
* Each recipe includes at LEAST one full-page, full-color photograph, and most also have photos of the ingredients or a few of the steps involved.

The CONS:
* The "stories", although enjoyable, are occasionally a bit lengthy.
* Recipe directions are in paragraph form, rather than numbered. This, of course, depends on personal preference. I like to see the steps numbered, which helps me keep track of where I am without having to waste time by re-reading the directions to find my place again.
* Pretty much all of the recipes are split between two pages. By this, I mean the recipe begins on, say, page 2 (on the right hand side), and you have to flip the page over to page 3 (on the left hand side) to see the rest of the directions. Again, this is not a HUGE deal, but it has become inconvenient for me when my hands are covered in flour or whatever and I have to flip the page back and forth. It would have been better if the recipes were each spread over two opposite-facing pages. This way, the book could just stay open the whole time I'm preparing the recipe.

BOTTOM LINE
Are these recipes good? Yes!
Are they easy? Yes, but maybe not for absolute beginners.
Are they quick? No, but that is part of their old-fashioned charm.
Am I glad I bought this and would I recommend it to a friend? Yes and YES! :)

I want to make everything in this book!!! Really, why didn't I think of Cheddar rolls in the same format as cinnamon rolls? Oh, and Scallion Shortbreads with tomato salad - hey, salad and bread in one item? I'll be serving these at a friend's shower I'm hosting. I'm now a complete cooking idiot! My poor husband will be cursing me as he's been on a diet for 30 years and I keep screwing it up for him. Oh, well. So, now I subscribe to Smitten Kitchen and my printer is out of breath as I'm printing everything! (Yes, I'm killing trees because my iPad keeps going to screen saver at the most important part of a recipe!) Thanks, Deb. Loving every bit of it.

Great cookbook. I love a lot of the recipes in this. I only wish I could tap a button and see everyone else's comments on the recipes (can I sub this? what if I leave out that? can I change the flour type or oil type or fruit?) I trust that the things I make out of this cook book will be good and they always are. The recipes are also very accessible for new cooks, which I love.

I've enjoyed reading cookbooks since I was 12 and taught myself to bake using my mother's Betty Crocker Illustrated Cookbook. I've been reading Deb's blog for several years now, and was so happy to hear she had published a book.

The photographs are amazing, crisp and clean and not out of focus (like Pioneer Woman's). Like Deb, I have a tiny kitchen and I liked the peek into her kitchen. Deb is not a blogging juggernaut; she comes across as a good home cook who cooks so she can eat the food she likes.

I have to eat a gluten free diet for health reasons and was pleased to see many of her recipes are either gluten free naturally or can be adapted easily; for instance, her Leek Fritters only call for 1/4 cup of all purpose flour, so substituting a neutral GF flour works perfectly here. I made them the other night and was amazed at how a few simple ingredients made something so addictive. The recipe was also easy to adapt to use different vegetables; I've made them since with cooked asparagus instead of leeks and they turned out wonderfully. They were a tad salty to my taste, but this may have been a difference in salt, so I just dialed the salt down the next time I made them.

So far in the sweets section I've only made the chocolate roll-out cookies, which were easy enough (though the dough was very stiff at first) and got a thumbs-up from my kids. Looking forward to making the granola and the latkes and the lemon bars, just to name a few.

Some people have commented that the layout of the book makes it awkward for cooking. I've noticed that is true on a few recipes, where the ingredients are on a righthand page and then the directions are on the page after that...this was an editing snafu, but is no reflection on the recipes themselves. If anything it will encourage me to gather my ingredients first, as one should, and then proceed with the recipe.

UPDATED 1/11/13--- I made the Whole Lemon Bars and at first was mildly disappointed; for having a whole lemon they didn't have a lemony, puckery "punch"--I thought perhaps too much butter, which muted the lemon. They were delicious, just not quite as lemony as I thought they'd be. But when my husband and sons tasted them they gave them RAVE reviews, my husband saying they had "just the right amount of lemon" and that more would have been overwhelming. My sons agreed with them. I tend to like things very tart and sour, which most people don't, so I will not change anything when I make them again, and I will make them again--my husband said he has never liked a lemon bar before in his life, so Deb must be on to something! The recipe is so freaking easy, too--as long as you have a food processor you can do it all in that and never dirty a mixing bowl. I also adapted them to be gluten free--using an equivalent amount of King Arthur Gluten Free Flour for the crust--and they came out perfectly.

The granola was easy, and as promised, made large chunks of granola. I did not have the coconut or walnuts, so used raw sunflower seeds instead. What a revelation that granola does NOT need tons of butter or oil or sugar to be delicious! And without having to stir it every ten minutes as in most recipes it was so much easier.

I love this cookbook! I really enjoyed Deb's blog and the recipes on it so I decided to purchase her book. The recipes are very contemporary and use fresh ingredients in new ways. You can tell that she has really thought through all the recipes. The directions are straightforward and we have already enjoyed many of them. I loaned the book to another cooking friend and she is ordering one for herself because there are so many recipes that she wants to make. It's amazing that Deb has been able to create all these great recipes in her tiny NY kitchen.
