Smitten Kitchen Every Day, by Deb Perelman

Staff Pick

Deb Perelman is a self-taught cook who's familiar with tiny kitchens, picky kids, and weeknight dinners in a pinch—and after more than 15 years of running her Smitten Kitchen blog, she’s a master at writing unfussy, delicious classics. At the same time, her recipes are far from ordinary, frequently putting a new (i.e., tastier) spin on familiar favorites. She's superb at sneaking vegetables into usually indulgent foods to up the nutritional value and give them even more flavor than they had before. This cookbook is great for anyone trying to cook at home more often, for a recent grad or newlyweds in search of foolproof recipes, or just for anyone who doesn't know what to make for dinner tonight.

The Weekday Vegetarians, by Jenny Rosenstrach

Staff Pick

Whether your vegetarian kids are in town or you're looking to reduce your carbon footprint, Jenny Rosenstrach has something for everyone! This cookbook is perfect for those looking to eat less meat without sacrificing quick, tasty, satisfying weeknight meals. Instead of vegetarian meals trying to convince you they "really taste like beef," Rosenstrach offers veggie- and bean-forward dishes to change the way you think about dinner. Rosenstrach's recipes are simple and frequently rely on pantry staples, making them accessible for those less comfortable in the kitchen. Some cookbooks are beautiful and stay on the shelf or the coffee table for browsing, while others are quickly grease-splattered and never leave the kitchen; The Weekday Vegetarians undoubtedly fits in the latter category. The Crunchy-Cheesy Bean Bake is on regular rotation in my kitchen!
