When it came to picking recipes for our Summer Forth Chicago, it was a no brainer to go to one of our all time favorite food bloggers - Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen. Not only are we thrilled to include her as a Bright Lady, but she is our first culinary Bright Lady! The woman deserves it - that tiny, cozy kitchen, an adorable kiddo on who is always eager to
assist make cookies, and endearing, comforting commentary? Deb is a huge inspiration to us, both in how talented we would love to be in the kitchen and how brilliantly she turned her culinary endeavors into a savvy enterprise. We'd love to have dinner with her sometime...just as long as she cooks.
Five reasons we love Deb Perelman...
1. She makes every single thing she prepares look amazing...in a kitchen that measures 6 ft. x 3ft.
3. She doesn't believe in bad cooks, just bad recipes. Amen, sister. Amen.
4. She is so organized, she indicates on each post what she cooked that day, 4, 5 and 6 years prior!
5. Not sure which of her delightful recipes to try? She has a "Surprise me!" button on the left sidebar of her blog that randomly generates a suggestion. Delightful!
