Lookin’ Good

November 28th, 2012 · 295 Comments · Uncategorized

As excited as I was by the arrival of my Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, I immediately handed it over to Abby. “Pick what looks good,” I told her. The book was written by Deb Perelman, grande dame of food bloggers, Olympian baker, DALS honorary guest, and shutterbug extraordinaire. This last part of her bio was crucial for me. If I’ve learned anything from this whole cooking-for-kids thing, it’s that the easiest way to convince someone under four feet tall that something is delicious is to show them a photograph of that something looking delicious. And when there are pages and pages of photographs showing things like Tomato Shortcakes with Whipped Goat Cheese and Balsamic and Beer-braised Short Ribs with Parsnip Puree and Apple Cider Caramels? Well, I know I’ve hit the jackpot. Almost an hour after giving Abby the book — an hour filled with ohmygodMOMs and wows – she handed it back to me the way you see above. It shouldn’t have come as too much of a surprise that the pages she tagged were Gooey Cinnamon Squares and Chocolate Raspberry Rugelach and Peach Dumplings With Bourbon and Hard Sauce and Deepest Dish Apple Pie. Perelman’s famous for her baked goods, each one of which just feels definitive — either the only one you’ll ever need or the only one that actually exists in the world (Buttered Popcorn Cookies!). Her recipes are not always easy, but they deliver in a big showstopping way, which is why she’s my go-to for holiday entertaining. As she says in the introduction,  ”I don’t really care if a meal is going to take more than thirty minutes to cook or if I’ll have to chop three different vegetables. All I need to know is that a soup that may take a little longer and may be a little more involved will actually taste better than what I’m used to.”

Of all recipes tagged with Abby’s post-its, naturally, I honed in on what looks the most manageable for a weeknight dinner. It’s pork, it’s apples, and you know it’s going to be good. Deb was nice enough to let us run it below.

PS: I’m giving away one free copy of The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook to a commenter selected at random. Winner announced Thursday morning (and must live in the 48 contiguous states). Good luck!

Update: Megan (#26) is the lucky winner. Thanks everyone and look out for some more giveaways as we head into the holidays.

Pork Chops with Cider, Horseradish, and Dill
From The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, by Deb Perelman
Serves 2 to 4 

glaze
1/2 cup (120 ml) cider vinegar
1/2 cup (120 ml) hard or pressed apple cider
2 tablespoons (30 grams) freshly grated horseradish
1/2 teaspoon salt
pinch of cayenne pepper

chops
4 bone-in loin pork chops, 1/2 inch thick (1 1/2 pounds/680 grams total), room temperature
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

Whisk the glaze ingredients together in a small dish, and set aside.

Trim any excess fat around chops until it is but a thin ribbon, no more than 1/8 inch thick. Pat chops dry with a paper towel, and generously season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a heavy 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the oil starts to smoke. Add the pork chops to the skillet, and cook them until they are well browned, about 3 minutes. Turn the chops, and cook 1 minute longer; then transfer chops to a plate and pour off any fat in skillet.

Pour glaze mixture into the emptied skillet. Bring it to a simmer, and cook until mixture thickens enough so your spatula leaves a trail when scraped across the pan, about 2 to 4 minutes. Return the chops and any accumulated juices from their plate to skillet; turn to coat both sides with glaze. Cook them over medium heat in the glaze until the center of the chops registers 140°F on an instant-read thermometer, about 5 minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste. Transfer the chops to a serving platter and pour the glaze from the pan over them. Sprinkle with dill, and eat immediately.

  • 2 Karin // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:19 am

    Mmmm. Pork chops. Haven’t had those in forever!

  • 3 Lori H // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:22 am

    I love Smitten Kitchen, the blog, so I know this cookbook will be fabulous!

  • 4 Mandy // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:24 am

    Yay! This is on my Amazon wishlist right now. Deb is one of the few bloggers (along with you guys) who we know we can trust.

  • 5 Lisa // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:40 am

    For days when I have a few extra minutes for making a fancy dinner, I’d love this cookbook!

  • 6 Katrina // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:48 am

    I’ve been eyeing that cookbook! Would love to win. :) Thanks for the opportunity!

  • 7 Anna // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:51 am

    Blessings!

  • 8 judy // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:52 am

    I’ve been reading Debs blog for many years. Her recipes definitely deliver . And I too think her photos are amazing. Thanks for the pork recipe.

  • 9 Shirley Boulay // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:52 am

    Yours is a warm and generous post. Perhaps you might consider sharing your views on the new Gather Journal as well? It’s a very different model for food writing, and somewhat off putting because of it’s price, but includes some good ideas and wonderful photographs.

  • 10 The Lazy Fair // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:57 am

    Gonna buy this anyway, but would love an extra copy to give to my sister-in-law for the holidays!

  • 11 Mary // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:59 am

    I love how all the food blog world is connected! The pork chops look amazing and I can’t wait to see that cookbook in person, one way or another.

  • 12 Lesley // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:03 am

    I’ve always loved the Smitten Kitchen too! I definitely plan on buying your cookbook for myself, but the SK cookbook would be a nice treat as well!

  • 13 Barb in Phx // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:07 am

    DALS and Smitten are the first two food blogs I check when I open Google Reader. You and Deb have introduced our family to new flavors and given us some great kitchen adventures. We would put her book to good use alongside yours.

  • 14 Deonne // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:10 am

    I love the Smitten Kitchen blog and can’t wait to look through the cookbook! Thanks for the giveaway!

  • 15 Sonja // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:10 am

    This one’s on my wishlist. Smitten Kitchen is one of the first places I go when I’m looking for a recipe. (Of course, DALS is another!)

  • 16 Liz // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:13 am

    I am going to see Deb speak tonight in Brookline (she’s following in your footsteps!), so this post is good timing :) I am glad you gave this recipe a test run – now I will be more likely to make it.

  • 17 Jessica // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:21 am

    I would love to try this cookbook out! It’s on my Christmas wish list!

  • 18 Danielle // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:21 am

    Both the book and the pork chops look amazing!

  • 19 Carly // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:21 am

    Wonderful! I was so excited when I first saw this cookbook, and I’m hoping that it enters our house this Christmas.

  • 20 Kristin // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:27 am

    All I have to say is yum.

  • 21 Clare // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:29 am

    I love Smitten Kitchen! Deb’s is definitely one of my go-to blogs for dessert recipes (and adorable toddler pictures). Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  • 22 Lourdes // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:29 am

    Would love a copy of the book. Looks yummy.

  • 23 Kelli // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:31 am

    Thank you so much for offering a free copy! I’m a huge fan of both yours and Deb’s. Her blog was my gateway into discovering so many wonderful cooking blogs and I’m happy to see you’re both receiving much success with your books. You deserve it!

  • 24 Chris // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:36 am

    Looks really good and easy to make!

  • 25 Lauren // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:36 am

    I love Smitten Kitchen! Thanks for sharing this recipe! Yum! Is it officially Abby approved?

  • 26 meghan // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:36 am

    I always forget how quick pork chops are to cook until I cook them and wonder why I don’t do it more often. Would love to have the SK cookbook!

  • 27 Allison // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:40 am

    I have been drooling at her photos for over a year now! I would love this book!

  • 28 Rebecca // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:42 am

    My two go-to websites when I’m out of dinner ideas are yours and Smitten Kitchen!

  • 29 TaraO // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:44 am

    I’ve picked up a few new cookbooks this year(including DALS, of course!) and Smitten Kitchen would be a great addition to my collection.

  • 30 Laura @ Chaotic Domestic // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:45 am

    The pork chops look delicious… and I think the horseradish, cider, and dill sounds like an interesting and wonderful combination! Would love to try this recipe, and anything else in the book!

  • 31 ruth // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:49 am

    this is the first thing we made in our house from her book! can’t wait to make everything else!!!

  • 35 Lucy F // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:00 am

    I would love a copy of Smitten Kitchen! I’m almost done with your book, and I love it!! I’ve already made several things, and they were a big hit!

  • 36 erinn johnson // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:04 am

    I am a huge Smitten Kitchen fan. I have made tons and tons from her blog.

    Having no power and then heat for almost a week in the aftermath of the storm we spent tons of time at the bookstore keeping warm and killing time. I got to look through the book at length. I have the book on my wish list. I have been dying to try the popcorn cookies.

    Thanks for the chance.

  • 37 Elizabeth Lee // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:05 am

    How lovely! x

  • 38 Julie C // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:05 am

    Yum, those sound delish. DALS vinegar-y pork chops have made it into our rotation so I will give these a try, too.

  • 39 katya // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:09 am

    i already have a copy but would love an extra to give away for xmas!

  • 40 Leslie // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:13 am

    I’ve already put so many cookbooks on my Christmas wish list this year, I’m going to buy this one for my mom. She will do it proud. I can’t wait to see it in person!

  • 41 Catherine // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:13 am

    This book is on my Christmas list! Love her website.

  • 42 Robin (noteverstill) // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:15 am

    I love Deb’s blog so much – I’d love to win her book!

  • 43 Kayla // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:16 am

    All my cookbooks look like that when I first bring them home!

  • 44 nina // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:16 am

    I would love smitten kitchen’s new book! I did get Sam Sifton’s Thanksgiving at your suggestion and love it dearly. Thank you.

  • 45 Debbie // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:16 am

    What a great idea–can’t wait to give Deb’s cookbook to my kids to choose from!

  • 46 Nancy // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:17 am

    Love DALS. Love Smitten Kitchen. Thanks for the give away opportunity.

  • 47 cck // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:17 am

    Smitten Kitchen was my first ever food blog – and because of Deb I’ve found so many more glorious resources!

  • 48 Mindy // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:20 am

    The cookbook looks beautiful!

  • 49 Aliso // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:23 am

    Looking good, indeed! Would love to have this book, I know it would energize a long winter of cooking for my family.

  • 50 Jen // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:27 am

    I would love this cookbook and you’ve inspired me to hand a cookbook to my son and do the same thing that you’ve done with your daughter! This is one benefit of a hard copy book that browsing recipes on the web can’t do quite as well. He could leave a browser window open for me, but I don’t think it has the same effect as a post-it on a physical page in a book.

  • 51 Rebecca // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:35 am

    Can’t wait to see the popcorn cookie recipe!

  • 52 Bea // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:39 am

    Thank you for offering this giveaway! I love your blog Jenny. Your cookbook is my go to cookbook. I plan to make the Meixcan Chocolate cookies for my annual family cookie bake. You rank right up there with my other favorite, Ina Garten. Thanks!

  • 53 Jenny Myers // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:40 am

    Maybe my kids would eat more than five things…

  • 54 Heather // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:41 am

    I love the SK blog. I am so excited that Deb finished her book! I am hoping to get it for Christmas – I bought 2 for Christmas presents but want “Santa” to gift me my own copy. Maybe this will be my early Christmas gift!

  • 55 Erica // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:41 am

    The chicken with grapes and olives (I know you don’t like them) is the best weeknight dinner. You must try it!

  • 56 Shanna // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:48 am

    Having your kid pick out recipes from a new, beautiful cookbook = brilliant! Filing that one away for my someday-with-kids files!

  • 57 Amber H. // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:49 am

    ooh, I would LOVE to win this cookbook! It’s on my Christmas list either way…

  • 58 Christy // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:49 am

    I’m a huge fan of Smitten Kitchen, and the recipe you featured, (pork, cider, dill, horseradish? Yes, please!) sounds amazing!

  • 61 Suzannah // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:56 am

    I’ve put myself on cookbook buying hiatus until after Christmas, this would be awesome :)

  • 62 Sara // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:57 am

  • 68 Caroline // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:00 am

    WOW. Those chops are going on my next meal plan. Thanks for the opportunity to check out the whole cookbook!

  • 71 Nina // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:07 am

    yes please!

  • 72 Jennifer read // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:07 am

    I asked for this for Christmas and it has taken all my will power not to order it before then. I did the cinnamon French toast off her blog and it was amazing and easy. My three year old twins loved it.

  • 73 Kate // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:08 am

    Such a fan of her blog! My beloved is the same way, needs to see pictures to think about food : )

  • 74 Jen // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:08 am

    Yay! I love her blog, and I’d love to have her cookbook!

  • 75 mek // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:09 am

    One of the Christmas gifts I am most looking forward to giving to my girl is a cookbook wrapped with post-it notes so she can do this very thing!

  • 76 T. // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:13 am

    I love Smitten Kitchen!

  • 77 Terri Wright // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:13 am

    Pick me! I’m dying to get a copy of her book!

  • 79 Libby // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:16 am

    What I love about Smitten Kitchen (and your recipes as well) is that the recipies are always delicious and perfectly attainable! They never (or very rarely) contain an ingredient that I can’t access in my small town and I’m never faced with a technique that I’m not confident that I could master (or wing–at best).

  • 80 Brea // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:19 am

    This cookbook is on my wishlist!

  • 81 Ed // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:23 am

    Impressive photos, and enticing, too! You both know how to narrate a recipe post so well.

  • 85 Kara // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:28 am

    I’ve been giving Deb’s cookbook (and yours, of course!) as gifts for the past few months and have yet to buy Deb’s for myself. Her apple cake is one of my very favorites ever.

    You and SmittenKitchen are the only two foodblogs I follow! Of course except for mine…but I’ve never told anyone it exists and hope no one finds it. But at least it’s a repository of my favorite recipes.

    I’d love a copy of the book!

  • 124 Elizabeth // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    Oh, pick me! Pick me!

  • 125 jess // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    I found my favorite muffin recipe at Smitten Kitchen, I would love this book!

    I would love to have this book in my kitchen. Just looking at her photos on her blog gives me the incentive to cook or bake that particular meal or dessert.

  • 127 Jennifer // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    That cookbook is on my Christmas wish list.

  • 128 Grace // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    I love the pork chop recipe that you’ve chosen to highlight — easy enough for dinner tonight! And what a great idea to have the kids pick what they want to eat.
    Crossing my fingers that I’ll win.

  • 129 Jenny Greene // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    Would love to try out this cookbook!

    I would LOVE to have a copy of The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook!

  • 134 Susan // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    You and Deb are my favorite food blogs to follow! I would love to win a cookbook!

  • 135 Erika Q. // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    Those chops do sound delicious. Might be my dinner today – thanks!

  • 136 Christine // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    I have this book on my Christmas wish list – I’ll be buying it in the new year if I’m not lucky enough to find a copy under the tree!

  • 137 magpie // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    those apple cider caramels are the bomb. seriously one of the best things i have ever made, ever.

  • 138 Liz // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Would love to dig into Deb’s new cookbook!

  • 139 Helen // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    That looks delicious! :)

  • 140 Kristina // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    Smitten Kitchen is on my Christmas list…don’t know if I can wait that long.

  • 141 becky // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:30 pm

    what a great giveaway. i’m always looking for some new kitchen inspiration! happy holidays!

  • 142 Wendy // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    Wow! This is now on my menu for next week! And this cookbook has been on my wishlist…pick me, pick me!!!

  • 143 Ivy // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    Yummy!

  • 144 Jennifer // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    Gosh, I love Smitten Kitchen. Great description of Deb’s cooking style too.

  • 145 Megan // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    I soooo want this cookbook! I have been awaiting it’s arrival since its early days. So exciting!!!

  • 146 Catherine // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    I love SMITTEN KITCHEN…would love a copy of her new cookbook!!

  • 147 Laura M. // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    Such a great idea, having your daughter pick recipes!

  • 148 philosophotarian // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    I love when my favorite food blogs collide! I usually plan my menus around the Smitten Kitchen archives.

  • 149 Janet // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    Would love to add this “must have” to my carefully curated collection of cookbooks!

  • 150 Rachel // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    Ooooh! I LOVE Smitten Kitchen and would love a copy of the cookbook. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • 151 Amy // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    Yes please! Deb’s photography is amazing.

  • 152 Kim // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    Love Smitten Kitchen and I pre-ordered the book from Amazon. Unfortunately, it arrived simultaneously with Sandy. For the time being we have place to cook due to storm damage, but I will use Abby’s method to mark my favorites in anticipation of the unveiling of our brand spanking new kitchen! The pork chops look like a keeper, for sure.

  • 153 jen h. // Nov 28, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    well, i was hoping that my husband would get the the new smitten cookbook for christmas (since he so thoughtfully surprised me with the DALS book last month- for no reason!) but if you pick me to receive your giveaway copy…he’ll just have to get me something else….. ;)

  • 154 Sandy // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    No surprise really that both your websites are bookmarked next to each other then. We have had DALS for about 4 months and only made a few dishes so far, but it is so inspiring!

  • 155 Jennifer // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:03 pm

    Oooh, I would love this book! DALS and Smitten Kitchen are the two food blogs that I can’t live without!

  • 156 emmycooks // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    Hey, that looks a lot like MY copy of the Smitten Kitchen cookbook! :)

  • 157 Neela // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    I was at the bookstore looking for a cookbook to give as a bridal shower present. That is when I saw your book and Smitten Kitchen. After perusing many cookbooks for my young friend I had to get something for myself. I whittled all the the books down to yours and Smitten Kitchen. Something about yours just called to me so I went with that one.

    I just finished your book. I read it cover to cover like a novel. I can’t wait to start cooking your tasty recipes. And it would be so awesome to get Smitten Kitchen.

  • 158 Meagan B // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    Two of my favorite blogs! Pick me pick me!

  • 159 Heather // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    I’ve definitely found that with Smitten Kitchen recipes the extra time and involvement is pretty much always worth it (I’m a legend in certain circles for making homemade oreos, and by certain circles, I pretty much just mean my boyfriend. and a couple of my co-workers), and this book and yours are the only things I’ve managed to think of for my christmas list :)

  • 160 Susan // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    Looks yummy!

  • 161 Jen W. // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    This book is definitely on my wish list. I made the apple cider caramels as a Thanksgiving hostess gift, and they were a big hit.

  • 162 Katie Brunkhorst // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    When going through a cookbook myself, many times the pictures dictate what I try first as well!

  • 163 Jennifer W // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Those look delish. Deb is here in Boston tonight and I’m home sick with a cold! I’m so sad I’ll miss meeting her. Think she could be convinced to drop by and make me some soup?

  • 164 Kelsi // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Looks delicious – cider and pork are perfect together.
    I’ve asked Santa for the cookbook already but afraid he might not deliver. Pick me!

  • 165 Ines // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:46 pm

    Thank you Jenny for introducing me to Smitten Kitchen! I learned about Deb here first and am so happy to visit both of your sites. I am inspired in so many ways by both of you as a working parent trying to make the dinner thing happen.

  • 166 Lela // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:47 pm

    I love her blog! Would love the cookbook.

  • 167 Jenn Warren // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    I’m on the list at the library for it.

  • 168 AC // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:50 pm

    I’ve been coveting this book since before it came out but just can’t buy things for myself right now. I LOVE smitten kitchen.

  • 169 Kate // Nov 28, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    Ok, I’d been resisting getting Deb’s book, but that was before I knew about the Buttered Popcorn Cookies. Now I need it!

  • 170 Fracine // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    pick me! :)

  • 171 cs white // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    What a brilliant idea to have the kidlet pick something out to eat! Why haven’t I thought of that before?

  • 172 Elizabeth M // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    I’ve had great success with recipes from Smitten Kitchen. Thanks for the chance to win her cookbook!

  • 173 Alaina Mc // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:22 pm

    Looks great!

  • 174 Katie // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:28 pm

    Jenny, I was just given your cookbook and wow! It is changing our family in a great way…and I haven’t cooked one of your recipes! I have read about the Smitten Kitchen and it is in my wish list!

  • 175 gayle p. // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    mmm.. this sound delicious – i love your cookbook, (even sent it off last week as a baby shower gift!) and Deb’s book is on my wish list!

  • 176 Sarah // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:36 pm

    My two favorite food bloggers, together in one post! Yay! Would love a copy!

  • 177 Eileen // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:37 pm

    Wait, popcorn COOKIES? I’m definitely going to have to get my hands on this one. :) Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  • 178 brookstar // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:39 pm

    Popcorn cookies? Whoa…what…?

  • 179 jen // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    oh my goodness that looks good…i was hoping to see this under my tree this year and maybe let my family listen to all my ohmygoodnesses while i flag pages in the next room! would love a copy of this!

  • 180 Mary in NY // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    Thanks I would love this cookbook, love both your site and Deb’s. Mary

  • 181 meaghan // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    I somehow randomly have all of these ingredients in my fridge right now (minus the dill – but a quick stop at the Grand Central Market will fix that). Guess I know what my family will be having for dinner tonight!

  • 182 Christina // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    I’m dying to get this book. Her Seven Layer Cookies (aka, rainbow cookies) are the absolute best!

  • 183 Lisa // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    This looks great. And I love Deb’s blog. Haven’t bought her cook book yet though.

  • 184 Krista // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    DALS and Smitten Kitchen are both on my Christmas wish list! Great post today.

  • 185 Dana // Nov 28, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    I actually bought DALS when I went into the store to get Deb’s book (it wasn’t out yet!) I feel so awesome that I found your cooking and we have Deb to thank!

    :)

  • 186 Marla // Nov 28, 2012 at 4:24 pm

  • 189 Zoe // Nov 28, 2012 at 4:43 pm

    Smitten Kitchen is my other go to site for recipes. I have never had any of her recipes turn out anything but wonderful – would love to have her book!

  • 190 Madeline // Nov 28, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    Love Smitten Kitchen and can’t wait to check out her cookbook (or win one!).

  • 191 Tara // Nov 28, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    I’ve been waiting for this book to be purchased by my local library, but winning a copy would be even better!

  • 192 mandy // Nov 28, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    i made this recipe last night for dinner – it came together so quickly and went so well with some roasted brussel sprouts. the book will definitely get a lot of use in my kitchen!

  • 193 Colleen // Nov 28, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    I have tried several recipes from her website and they are always delicious!

  • 194 Mary // Nov 28, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    I want this book so bad, but we’re on a spending hiatus. Fingers crossed!

  • 195 Victoria // Nov 28, 2012 at 4:57 pm

  • 199 wmbg // Nov 28, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    p.s. i’d skip the dill but all of the other ingredients sound like great additions to the simple porkchop.

  • 200 Blair // Nov 28, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    What a coincidence – I have porkchops defrosting right this minute. I think it’s a sign that I need to use this recipe. And I love Smitten Kitchen! Fingers crossed!

    Would love to win it. My daughter has asked for YOUR book for Christmas..:) I think Santa will comply

  • 212 Katastic // Nov 28, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    I’m drooling just looking at the recipes in this book. It looks like a home run! I just added this to my Christmas list….I’m very selective about my cook books and this one looks like a game changer! Thanks DAL for introducing Katastic and smitten.:)

  • 213 The Modern Gal // Nov 28, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    It sounds like Abby and I have kindred tastes!

  • 214 sandi // Nov 28, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    i would love to win this! those easy go to meals are great once in a while, but my family does appreciate the time that goes into a well prepared dinner. the middle child loves to bookmark recipes too… she just finished making pot pie crusts from scratch for dinner tonight.

  • 215 laura // Nov 28, 2012 at 6:25 pm

    Sounds fabulous. I love the addition of horseradish!

  • 216 Angela // Nov 28, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    I love your blog a great mix of my favorites food, books, etc… . I’ve never been disappointed by recipes here or on Smitten Kitchen. Favorites from the SK blog are the strawberry summer cake ( I’ve made it w/ many different fruits, the latest version being apples and fresh cranberries. I use all white whole wheat flour.)and blueberry yogurt multigrain pancakes. Thank you.

  • 224 Missy // Nov 28, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    Oh what a dream, like a library checkout without the fees. I love book giveaways. I gained the most respect for her after she made the homemade goldfish cracker recipe:) My girls love them.

  • 225 Ellie // Nov 28, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    DALS and SK are my go-to sites for inspiration!

  • 230 Angie @ Just Like The Number // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:02 pm

    Deb’s recipe for pickled red onions pretty much changed my life. I make them year round and they make everything taste better. I’m so glad she has a book!

  • 231 Nicole // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    I was just looking at purchasing this book last night!

    I’ve been eyeing this in the stores.

  • 236 jen // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    One of your blogs led me to the other (I can’t remember anymore which direction it went) and have led to many happy meals here. I’ll admit, I’m more likely to make DALS recipes because they’re on the more manageable end of the spectrum. But SK photos are definitely drool-worthy and inspiring! Both books are on my Amazon wishlist for this Christmas…

  • 237 Heather // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    I am so excited for this book! It is on my Christmas list….I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

  • 238 Lori // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    Heard her speak on NPR and am so curious to see the book. Oooh, I hope I win! Thanks!

  • 239 Julia // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    Smitten Kitchen was my first food blog obsession, and lead me to many others (like DALS)! Would love to have a copy of the book!

  • 240 Betsy // Nov 28, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    I want the deep dish apple pie secret! Apple and pork are quite the couple in my opinion. Cheers

  • 241 Carrie // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Pick me! Sounds great! Either way, I’m going to need to pick this one up

  • 242 Constance // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Love SmittenKitchen! Would love to win a copy. I plan on buying one if I can’t.

  • 247 bridgit // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Deb’s peanut butter chocolate cake insanity has been my go-to dessert for birthday’s for my husband’s side of the family. They all love peanut butter & chocolate, and none of them like to stray too far into the un-known. Making that cake (with or without the ganache and brittle) allows me to have fun and fuss in the kitchen, and EVERYONE loves it.

  • 248 jackie // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    This cookbook is definitely going on my holiday wishlist!

  • 249 Christine // Nov 28, 2012 at 9:50 pm

  • 257 Joey // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Wow. That looks good. But how can you feature a savory among all the wonderful sweets?!

  • 258 Kate // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    I just finished reading the DALS cookbook last week, which I loved, so I could use another cookbook to put on my nightstand!

  • 259 Chris // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    I was forced to return Deb’s book to the library yesterday, after drooling over it for 2 weeks!

  • 260 Meg // Nov 28, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Love your blog and Smitten’s!

  • 261 Kim // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    I would love to have this book for my kitchen. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • 263 Claudy // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    I was introduced to Deb by you! I have since fallen in love with her too and now DALS and Smitten Kitchen are my go-to bookmarks. Already have your book totally marked up (and voted for you on Good Reads!), have given as a gift to a friend, and recommended it to countless others. Now eagerly awaiting my copy of Smitten Kitchen from Amazon – should be here Thursday (finally!).

  • 264 Katie // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    I had the same reaction that Abby did when looking through the cookbook, and I, too, tagged almost every recipe. I recently made the slow cooker black beans from The Smitten Kitchen Book and blended them into a delicious soup – perfect for a cool November evening.

  • 265 Erica L // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    This cookbook looks gorgeous! I’d love to win it.

    LOVE Smitten Kitchen!

    The first time I visited her website, I was immediately wary. Many, and I mean many, of her recipes just feel out of my league. But a few of them looked doable; all looked absolutely delicious.

    That being said, I’d love to try anything of hers. Perhaps her book is what I need to expand my repertoire.

    I’ve been looking for a great pork chop recipe and this sure strikes my taste buds as a contender! My husband has loved everything I’ve made from both DALS and Smit Kit sites. however, more telling than that is the fact that I got that salivary tingle when I saw the picture. I could smell the chops! Yum!

  • 278 Sarah // Nov 29, 2012 at 2:41 am

    That recipe has me feeling hungry again even though I’ve already had dinner tonight.

  • 291 Molly // Nov 29, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Am I too late!? Smitten Kitchen and DALS are my two go-to blogs when I’m inspiration-less (sadly, often these days).

    I also have some leftover apple cider in the fridge from a soup I made recently. It may have just been given a new destiny – pork glaze. Who wouldn’t want that sort of fate?

  • 292 MiamiMom // Nov 29, 2012 at 10:40 am

    DALS and Smitten Kitchen are the only blogs I read! I’m buying your book this holiday season for a couple of friends and family members.

  • 293 Reynaul // Nov 29, 2012 at 10:58 am

    I don’t eat pork, but this looks awesome! I may have to make an exception! :-) Smitten Kitchen is awesome blog right along with yours!
