I bought this book 2 years ago right after my wedding. I rarely use to cook; I was a full-time grad student and my kitchen was stocked with appliances from Goodwill. But after my wedding shower, where I practically received an entirely new kitchen, I wanted a great cookbook to test out all my fun new appliances. This book quickly became my version of "Julia and Julia"; I made it my goal to try as many recipes as I could in our first year of marriage. My husband and I recently moved out of our first apartment, but every time I open this cookbook I get a warm sense of nostalgia. It reminds me of how excited I was to try a new recipe and cook with my husband in our first home.

What is to love: Great introduction; beautiful pictures; easy recipes.

Here are the recipes we have tried so far:
Oatmeal yogurt pancakes-strawberries or raspberries also make a great crush.
Rise and Shine muffins-I freeze these and grab one when heading to work. They unthaw by the time I get there (~1hour). 2% greek yogurt on these is a must! I calculated them to be: 17 muffins/batch; each muffin=242 calories, 13.3g fat, 29.3 carbs, 3.5g protein, and 3g fiber (Add in ground flax seed to give them more fiber).
Oatmeal scones- SO GOOD.
Golden Zucchini bread
Overnight egg and cheese strata-My husband had me make this for him 2 weekends in a row. It was that good. We used smoked fontina cheese and fresh multigrain oat bread (Mariano's deli section)
Open-face egg sandwiches-I make this with an over easy egg, dill mayo, and arugula on Mariano's multigrain bread or an english muffin. The paprika adds the perfect touch of flavor.
Man Sandwich
Fried rice-Let the rice get brown and crispy.
Linguine with sausage and easy egg sauce-One of our favorite easy dinner recipes; I love the hint of lemon.
Double-dip roast chicken
Homemade Gnocchi with summer beans-Loved this except for the tarragon leaves. I'm not a fan of licorice.
SWIRLS OF SPAGHETTI with sweet corn and mushrooms: FAVORITE. My Italian father loves this dish. Baby bellas and shitake mushrooms work great too.
Big-flavor short ribs-Made it for Valentine's day. It was the perfect date night meal.
Don't You Dare mashed potatoes-Use 2% greek yogurt!
Marinated Olives-Trader Joe's picholine olives are perfect for this.

Warm cherries with pistachio ice cream-invest in a high quality pistachio ice cream.
Berries and Cream Biscuits- serve with vanilla bean ice cream and lots of whipped cream.
BITTER SWEET CHOCOLATE TART- STAPLE RECIPE. In my family, everyone has a signature dish they are asked to bring to family parties: Auntie Di's cheese ball, Aunt Chris's sugar cookies, and now, Jill's chocolate tart. I use ghirardelli bittersweet dark chocolate bars and SEA SALT. Lots of SEA SALT after it cools and top with raspberries.
Rhubarb upside down cake- This is super sweet and delicious, but lots of sugar. It's perfect to make once a year when rhubarb is in season.
Better than boxed chocolate cake-OMG. Just make it. You'll see.
Deep dark secret cookies
Thousand-layer chocolate chip cookies: They remind me of the large flat cookies you can buy in the bakery section. They are perfect for ice cream sandwiches.

Scratch Sangria
Venezuelan chocolate shake-We add crushed oreos.

These are also good, but I already had staple versions of these recipes:
Make ahead lasagna-The Italian in me prefers ricotta, but cottage cheese was a good substitute. I also have the Atlas pasta maker. If you love cooking, I highly recommend investing in this. Fresh lasagna noodles are divine (Avoid the Kitchenaid pasta maker. It broke my first mixmaster and I had to return book of them).
Mac cheese-In our house, this is a whatever-cheese-is-in-the-fridge recipe. One of my favorite combos is gouda, monetary jack, and cheddar. Top with buttered bread crumbs or panko crumbs.
French onion soup-If you only have chicken broth this is good, but I prefer a mix of chicken and beef broth. I also caramelize onions in the oven.
My girl's brownies-Good, but I like gooey fudge brownies.

Now that I've listed what I've made, I realized how much I haven't made! Looking forward to trying other recipes in this book, as well as recipes from Sarah's Feast cookbook (which I recently purchased).

This book is simply adorable. I found it for a a bridal shower after they registered for a cookbook stand. I couldn't just give them a stand without a cookbook, so what a perfect gift this was! All the ladies thought it was so cute and wanted to know where I got it. It's super trendy with great pictures and recipes inside. It teaches the newlyweds how to find the best ingredients, prep and of course how to cook. The beginning of the book provides recipes for cooking for 2, then how to cook for a small group and finally entertain a large party. What a great find, and I will consider purchasing it for another young couple in the future. I stuck some of my own recipes in there on handwritten cards and added a nice message to the inside cover. I think it will make a great keepsake for the newlyweds!

I'm a Russian Occupant
This is a great cookbook. I was disappointed when no one purchased it on our wedding registry, but once I had the registry discount and some gift cards, it was the first item put into my cart. The recipes are great, and they're generally not too complicated. They all have a modern feel to them, lots of health-conscious options, with some sweet foods for special occasions. The first part of the cookbook is dedicated to helping you find the right ingredients, in farmers markets, butcher shops, etc.

A beautiful cookbook that makes a great gift for newlyweds as part of a housewarming, bridal shower, or wedding gift. I first saw this in store at Anthropologie and then was going to order it online...so glad I immediately thought of ordering from Amazon as you easily save $15 and get free shipping (prime).
I took a quick look through the recipes and they look really nice. If you've seen it elsewhere, just do yourself a favor and order from Amazon.

I LOVE this cookbook. I bought it for a wedding gift and as I was looking through it I found so many delicious recipes that I plan to try myself. Many times I find cookbooks with recipes with ingredients that I would never buy, but this book contains recipes that most normal people would want to eat.

Beautiful cookbook. It's pretty large and has what seems like an endless amount of recipes. Great quality book with a cute page to inscribe the bride/grooms names.

Great book. Better in person than even on line. I love the recipes that seem to be very practical, yet fun. Love how the book is set up for a newlywed couple and I gave it, along with some kitchen utensils, as a wedding gift, to my niece who is just starting out setting up a home.

I've been married for 10+ years and this is still my go-to cookbook. All the recipes are decadent, yet simple to follow. Get ready for great meals and fun times with your one and only. And, an occasional guest or two.
