Are you a Smitten Kitchen addict? I absolutely am. It was the first blog I ever read and I was hooked. To the blog and to blogging in general. What blog first turned you on to blogging?
The Smitten Kitchen lady recently put out a cookbook. Okay, her name is Deb Perelman. However, it seems weird to refer to someone I have never met by their first name. Instead, I refer to her as the Smitten Kitchen lady. End tangent.
Take two. The Smitten Kitchen lady recently put out a cookbook. It is gorgeous and filled with a million things that I want to eat. For example, cheddar swirl breakfast buns, peach dumplings with a bourbon hard sauce, and tomato scallion shortcakes. I could devote this entire blog to recreating Smitten Kitchen recipes. However, since her recipes are perfect, her photos are gorgeous and her son is super cute there is almost nothing to improve on.
I feel bad printing a recipe from a book that is still new to the shelves especially since the only change I made was omitting the frosting. So instead, I will take this one opportunity to share photos. I made the Grapefruit Olive Oil Loaf Cake and it was so tasty.
