  • I have to admit I was skeptical when my husband bought your first book. We have so many cookbooks, as our daughter reviews them for our local paper. So we read and test a LOT of recipes.
    But I have been converted. 😂
    Seriously, everything we have made from your first book has been a hit. I write in my cookbooks and yours is full of notes like “This is amazing!” and “So easy and good!”And very few notes about things which need changes. Plus, best of all, people ask for the recipes.
    Thanks for making food that is easy, accessible, and delicious!
    Can’t wait to see the new book!

  • Hello, I pre-ordered your book on Amazon—very excited to get it. When I download the digital bonus recipes and try to save it, it says the owner doesn’t allow it.

  • Just got your new book and I love it! Looking forward to cooking my way through all the wonderful recipes like I did with your first book. My family thanks you, all the best:)

  • I can’t wait to get this book!!! I have your first book and have given it as gifts as it’s so good. I really NEED this new one as I’m stuck in a rut and we’re tired of my same ol’ tacos and spaghetti!

  • “Your recipes work,” to my mind, is the ultimate compliment — after years of trying to figure out what went wrong with recipes from the kitchen “greats,” I no longer have to do that. You are a trailblazer, forging ahead with new recipes that make me feel like you are in the kitchen with me. These recipes are crafted to get those of us who love to cook on the right path, classics included and riffs on the same. And, you have included some weekend stunners as well. I ordered mine from Amazon months ago and cannot wait to open the book and start “imagining” the next great meal. Thank you as usual for your hard work. It has paved the way to what we hope will be the next long-anticipated series of “dinner parties” we have been imagining while in isolation for the virus. We are determined to craft this series going forward, even if we have to sit outside in our screened in porch with a fan moving the air. I have been ketoing for the last 6 weeks and your recipes are appropriate for keto guidelines as well. Brava!

  • Looking forward to your new book, Jenn. All your recipes work!

  • Congratulations, Jenn! I am so excited to receive the cookbook in a few weeks. I made your Bbq chicken thighs with cucumber salad the other night from your bonus pack, and it was absolutely amazing. Your tip on how to tame the onions works perfectly and “soaking” them in the dressing further mellows them. You must be a chemist to know how all those ingredients will come together so beautifully. I can hardly wait to see what else is in the cookbook. Happy New Year to you and your family.

  • Your first cookbook is my first go to every time and you never disappoint!!! Recipes are always delicious and the flavor profiles are perfect! I ordered the new book for my son and his girlfriend and of course for myself! Thanks Jenn!!!

  • My family is excited to use the new book – the first one is a gem, and so is this website. We can always rely on you for delicious, exciting, and straightforward recipes. I love sharing this site and your book with everyone who enjoys cooking and baking. It is excellent that the second book will be out in time for the holidays.

    • Thanks for all your support! 💗

  • Just pre-ordered the new book via Amazon. Congratulations! Can’t wait to try more of your delicious recipes.

    • Thank you, My – I hope it becomes a new favorite cookbook! 🙂

  • Do we receive the bonus recipes if we pre-ordered when you first announced your new cookbook? Can’t wait to receive it! 🙂

    • Hello and Thank You for your Great Recipes
      I ordered your new book from Indigo.ca. I received it today and was looking for the “Bonus Pack” — I only received the main recipe book.
      If you email me, I can send you my address and hopefully you will mail the Bonus Pack that you mentioned in your advertisement for the new book.
      Excited to try some new recipes., I have been on your email list for years —
      Thank You
