Book Review: 'Homemade with Love'

book coverHomemade with Love is a beautiful book which offers simple, from scratch recipes for you to enjoy with those you love.

The book starts out with the basics, including a chicken stock recipe and a simple marinara sauce. There are fun drink and snack recipes like Watermelon-Cilantro Sparkler, Rosemary & Pecorino Popcorn, and Pistachio Cupcakes. Entree ideas include Orange Balsamic Glazed Salmon and Drop Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie.

I find her recipes to be a nice mix of both home style and sophistication. Perfect to enjoy with your family or an intimate dinner party, with delicious photos throughout. An icon at the end of each entry quickly indicates if it is a 30 minute or less recipe, vegetarian, vegan, freezer friendly, gluten-free, etc.

Jennifer Perillo has worked in some of New York's top restaurants. This is her first of hopefully many cookbooks.
