About the Book:
The eagerly awaited first cookbook from the wildly popular blog How
Sweet Eats Jessica Merchant, creator of the popular food blog How Sweet
Eats, has now created her first cookbook, "Seriously Delish." Her
playfulness jumps off the page in her inventive and incredibly delicious
recipes, such as Amaretto-Butternut Squash Soup with Cinnamon Toast
Croutons, Mini Crab Cakes with Sweet Corn and Blueberry Salsa, and Fleur
de Sel Caramel Bourbon Brownie Milk Shakes. Her sense of humor, which
brings millions of visitors to her site, shows through in chapter titles
like "Breakfast (. . . for Dinner?)" and "Salad, Soups, and
Vegetable-like Things (Ugh, if We Must)." Merchant makes food that
people get excited about, nothing run-of-the-mill or expected. "Seriously Delish" features imaginative
recipes that are tasty and original and bring readers to a place where
cooking becomes adventurous and food becomes fun.
Jessica is a full-time recipe developer, food writer, and blogger who is
intensely passionate about food and writing, and especially sharing her
food through her writing. She is madly, outrageously, inexplicably in
love with food. Bacon
makes her beam. Chocolate makes her shout from the rooftops with joy.
Vegetables are her biggest frenemy. She started the blog How Sweet Eats in 2009, and to date it has been read by over
150 million people. The website, focused primarily on lifestyle and
food, has attracted men and women of all ages and interests. How Sweet
It Is averages about 3.7 million unique visitors a month.
Jessica is a contributor to Ree Drummond’s Tasty Kitchen, as well as Relish magazine. Her work has been featured on TheKitchn, Bon Appetit, Food52, the Huffington Post, Shape, Fitness, Women’s Health, Southern Living, and elsewhere.
