“As I slowly turned the pages of Jessica's glorious cookbook, I found that each section completely outdid the one before it. I wanted each and every sandwich, swooned over each and every salad, and the Tex-Mex section . . . well, it just about sent me over the edge. (And don't even get me started on the drinks and desserts! Wow.) Jessica's photos are absolutely mouthwatering, and her recipes lure you in to the point that you'll start making your grocery list immediately. I'll say it again: This is a glorious cookbook!”
—Ree Drummond, #1 NYT best-selling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks
“She had me at the gorgonzola slaw. . . . Jessica Merchant's cookbook, Seriously Delish, is my new dream food bible. It is fresh and easy—but more importantly it's fun and exciting; a celebration of how yummy life can be, three times a day.”
—Elin Hilderbrand, author of The Matchmaker and Beautiful Day
“I've always had the biggest blog crush on Jessica from How Sweet Eats. She’s hilarious, a creative genius in the kitchen (I mean, banana macaroon smoothie, toasted sesame broccoli, parmesan-pistachio kale chips . . . yum!), and reading her book makes you feel like you're cooking with your BFF.”
—Gina Homolka, creator of Skinnytaste.com
“Seriously Delish is a love letter to all of Jessica Merchant's passionate readers. Decadent photos and recipes that make you want to run into the kitchen to cook! Witty and whimsical, Jessica creates a world of food, fun, and flair that keeps you laughing through her cookbook.”
—Catherine McCord, founder of Weelicious.com
"With this cookbook in my kitchen, it feels like I’m opening up a conversation with the best kind of friend; the friend who makes you cookies for breakfast and keeps you laughing along the way. Seriously Delish is mouthwatering, practical, and hilarious, too!”
—Joy Wilson, Joy the Baker
Présentation de l'éditeur
The eagerly awaited first cookbook from the wildly popular blog How Sweet EatsJessica Merchant, creator of the popular food blog How Sweet Eats, has now created her first cookbook, Seriously Delish. Her playfulness jumps off the page in her inventive and incredibly delicious recipes, such as Amaretto–Butternut Squash Soup with Cinnamon Toast Croutons, Mini Crab Cakes with Sweet Corn and Blueberry Salsa, and Fleur de Sel Caramel Bourbon Brownie Milk Shakes. Her sense of humor, which brings millions of visitors to her site, shows through in chapter titles like “Breakfast (. . . for Dinner?)” and “Salad, Soups, and Vegetable-like Things (Ugh, if We Must).” Merchant makes food that people get excited about, nothing run-of-the-mill or expected. As an added bonus, all of the photographs in the book were taken by Merchant herself, giving her cookbook the personal touch that her fans love and newcomers will appreciate. Seriously Delish features imaginative recipes that are tasty and original and bring readers to a place where cooking becomes adventurous and food becomes fun.

“Seriously Delish” comes in at around 300 pages and features 150 recipes that span breakfast, appetizers, salads/soups, entrees, desserts, & drinks. Nearly every recipe in the book is accompanied by beautiful photography. Even better, this is not her blog in book form. All the recipes are brand new or revised renditions of past recipes.
The recipes in the book are very simple to make. The ingredient lists are small and do not feature many exotic ingredients. You will not need to make special trips to the store for these. Likewise, the directions are easy to follow. This keeps the cost down and time in the kitchen to a minimum.
Food is as phenomenal as it looks. I have made several recipes so far and all have been winners. So far I have tried the BBQ Roasted Chickpeas, Grilled Scallion Corn & Shrimp Quesadillas, “Grown-up PB&J’s”, Smoked Salmon BLTs with Herbed Mayo, & Slow-roasted Chicken Tacos with Gorgonzola Slaw. There have not been any leftovers ;)
Forgotten amongst the great recipes, is the writing. This book is fun to read! Like the website, the enthusiasm and passion for cooking comes through on every page. No food snobbery here. It is a book written by someone who thoroughly enjoys what they do. This book makes you want to cook with a smile on your face.
If you are interested in cooking, you will enjoy this book and find it easy to follow. Cheers!
The recipes are so unique and different, and the beautiful photographs taken by Jessica herself make it that much more special If you're a fan of Jessica's blog, How Sweet Eats, you will absolutely adore this book! I can honestly say I’ve never stumbled across a cookbook with this much personality!
One of my absolute favorite parts is the main introduction, where she shares all the details about how she got into this crazy world of food blogging, tells us more about her family and childhood, and how she fell in love with cooking and recipe development. She even has a section in there called, ‘Why I can’t live without bacon.” Her wit and charm come across not only in the table of contents and recipes categories such as, “Salads, Soups & Vegetable-Like Things (ugh, if we must)” and “Stuff to Sip on (the happiest hours)”, but also in the recipe introductions, which are very much written in the style of mini blog posts–so fun and unique!
I've already made several things from the book, including the "Homemade Chicken Pitas with Jalapeno Whipped Feta + Quick Tzatziki" and "Greens and Beans Burger"--and both were absolutely delicious! I know this is a cookbook that I will reference for years to come, and I can't wait to cook my way through it.
When Jess announced she had a cookbook coming out I was so excited. Everyone knows I am not a big buyer of books, but I knew I had to get my hands on Seriously Delish. I wish I could have made it to one of Jess's NYC book signings, but they were right after I started my new job and I just couldn't swing getting out of work early to go into the city. When I finally got my hands on the book I was not disappointed. I actually sat and read the book cover to cover and couldn't wait to get started on cooking some of the recipes in the book.
Let's talk about the pros and the cons:
* Just like on her blog Jess's personality and voice really shine through and not only are the recipes great and then photography wonderful, it's an entertaining and funny read.
* In addition to being entertaining and funny it's also informative. I think of myself as a pretty experienced cook, but I definitely learned new things and picked up pieces of advice from Jess's writing.
* I love Jess's blog because she strikes a great balance between crazy-I-would-never-make-that food porn and recipes that I want to make for dinner that night. As much as I love the food porn I appreciated that Jess's book is much more in the things-I-would-make-for-dinner vein.
* There is a wide variety of food from the three main meals to snacks to appetizers to alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
* It's a hardcover paper over board case which I love, especially for a cookbook. No annoying dust jacket!
* In theory I like the idea of the "celebrations" chapter that has food, both fancy and not fancy, for special occasions, but in practice it just kind of confuses me. I can remember seeing a salad or grilled cheese, but then I have to remember if it's a celebration salad or grilled cheese or a regular soup or sandwich.
* I love Jess's photography, but some of the layout of pages drives me a little nuts. Most of the pages and spreads are fine, but then sometimes there will be a picture floating in a weird spot on the page or the layout of text will be kind of odd. Some of the pages just looked a little patched together.
* There seem to be a very high percentage of recipes involving pineapple. Maybe it's just me and my pineapple allergy, but I found it a little bit odd and annoying (because I love pineapple and hate that I can't eat it any more).
With 150 recipes I still have many more to try like the strawberry coffee cake scones, 30-minute southwest black bean soup, whole wheat blueberry bundt cake, and cheesy roasted cauliflower dip. My favorites that I've tried are the Greek chick panzanella with honey-lemon vinaigrette (I flipped the ratios of vinegar and olive oil in the dressing), homemade chicken pitas with jalapeno whipped feta and quick tzatziki (except I made it without the tzatziki because I hate it), and whole wheat chocolate chip cookies.
If you're not sure about investing in the book you should definitely spend some time on Jess's blog first. I think my two all-time favorite recipes of hers are the roasted chipotle chicken taco stacks (some of the best chicken I've ever had) and the roasted jalapeno cheddar turkey burgers with BBQ aioli (just flat-out amazing) and I highly recommend making both of them ASAP. And then, after loving them, going out and getting Seriously Delish.
Filled with Jessica's signature style of writing, you'll feel like you're in the kitchen with a friend...and a FUN friend at that. I love that Jessica loves food...all food...there's no pretentiousness here. The recipes are approachable and original. You might have had chicken tacos before, but what about Slow-Roasted Chicken Tacos with Gorgonzola Slaw? I can't wait to try her Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls, Parmesan-Pistacho Kale Chips, BBQ Chicken and Sweet Corn Pizza, and well...I want to try it all.
I've made two recipes from the book so far (planning another for dinner this week)...both were stellar.
If you're looking for recipes that will shake up your routine, but are still simple enough for every day meals, I think you'll love this book.
