I have a confession to make: cooking is not my strong suit. When I'm called upon to whip up something delicious, after momentary panic, I go to my favorite foodie blog, Smitten Kitchen.
So, you can only imagine my excitement when I discovered Deb Perelman, the self-taught cook/photographer/culinary genius behind the blog, is coming out with a cookbook in October. Included are recipes you can't find on the website along with introductions detailing their humble beginnings and evolution and mouthwatering photography.
Though it won't be on shelves until the fall, it's available for pre-sale here. It'd make such a great bridal shower or bridesmaid gift. Put your trust in Deb: For your first date-night in, one of her masterpieces won't let you down.
