I've been following Jenn Segal's Once Upon a Chef blog for several years now and for almost as long, it has been my go-to site when I'm searching for a new recipe. Not only are the recipes all good, she is wonderfully responsive to any questions. So I was thrilled for her when she announced a cookbook was forthcoming and happy for me when I won a copy on LT. The cookbook is beautiful. Each recipe, and there is a nice variety, includes a photo and some have step-by-step photos, too. There are also tips and comments on the recipes. The recipes themselves are easy to follow, with unfussy ingredients, and every one that I've tried, I've liked. Some of my favorites that I've made, most multiple times, are Spinach and Gruyere Quiche, Black Bean & Corn Salad with Chipotle Honey Vinaigrette, Pasta e Fagioli, Old Fashioned Ginger Spice Cookies (with a black pepper kick!), and the totally irresistible Sweet, Salty, Spicy Pecans. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys cooking and it would make a great gift.

I was very excited to receive this, I'm always looking for new recipes to try out. There was a good mix, including ones my kids loved. The cookbook was easy to use, good instructions with pictures. Whenever I'm looking for a new cookbook pictures are always included in my list of wants, I almost never buy one without them. I really liked the Pro Tips in each section. I will be following her to look for new books in the future!

This was a LibraryThing.com win for me, and I read it the day it arrived in the mail (today!). And I am sure I'll read it many times over again when looking for something simple, attractive, and healthy to make. I know I'll be trying Joanne's Refrigerator Dill Pickles as I'm always on a quest for the perfect dill. Also am intrigued by the Maryland Crab Cakes and Spanakopita Rolls. The dinner rolls and all of the soups sound amazing, as does the Thai Crunch Salad with Peanut dressing. These are things I usually let someone else make for me, but Segal makes them look so easy. I hope to update this review as I try some of the recipes.
