Welcome home! A warm and welcoming cookbook to celebrate the simple pleasures of cooking at home, from Rosie Daykin, bestselling author of Butter Baked Goods and Butter Celebrates!
Rosie Daykin's talent in life is feeding; cooking for others has always been her way of starting a conversation - of letting you know she cares. She shared this talent on a large scale when she opened her little-neighborhood-bakery-that-could, Butter Baked Goods, and then again with her bestselling cookbooks, Butter Baked Goods and Butter Celebrates! With Let Me Feed You, she brings it back to where it all began: home.
Growing up in the kitchen, Rosie realized early on that as much as she loves mastering a new dish, her favorite style of cooking is one with little fuss, using basic but quality ingredients. When her daughter was born this approach became even more fitting as there was little time left in a day for anything more complicated. By keeping it simple and keeping it real, she managed to keep her sanity, while still maintaining her love for feeding others. Given how busy life can be, she doesn't believe making a comforting home cooked meal should make it any more complicated--because complicated doesn't always mean better.
Let Me Feed You is full of Rosie's simple and delicious recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and of course, dessert--be prepared to serve second helpings of her Fried Chicken for Impatient People Like Me, Old School Potato Salad, D.G.M. (damn good meatloaf), Egg McWhatchamacalllits, Quiche Me You Fool, Fluffy Flaky Biscuits, How to Catch A Husband Lamb, Cinnamon Donut Muffins, Bajillionaire Bars, and Rhubarb Upside Down Cake. The recipes in this book are as delicious and satisfying as they are straightforward and achievable, and all are accompanied by Rosie's cheeky asides from the kitchen (like the time she accidentally washed all the dishes naked). Even the most novice cook can find success here--if cooking is a language, Rosie avoids the big words--and somewhere on these pages you're sure to discover a favorite new dish (or two, or three...) that will inspire you to set the table, call for those you love to join you, and start a conversation all your own.
