We've been admirers of Deb Perelman and her cooking blog Smitten Kitchen for years, and are stoked that her simple, elegant recipes and gorgeous photos have finally made their way into a cookbook. As she writes in a blog post announcing its release, the cookbook has 105 recipes (85 new, never appeared on the site) and a cover that stays open to the right page when flat on the counter (home cooks everywhere are cheering). Express your admiration and buy a book from Perelman herself during her signing this Sunday at Omnivore Books from 2-3 p.m.

Flipping through, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook is one of those books where everything sounds delicious -- the pistachio masala lamb chops, the avocado tartine with cucumber and sesame seeds, the marbled pumpkin gingersnap tart -- and immediately makes us start planning dinner parties in our head. And with more than 300 photos taken by Perelman, chronicling everything from step-by-step how to's to beauty shots of the final dishes, the finished product looks as good as we're sure the recipes will taste.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
