With its delectable recipes and charming girl-next-door tone, Homemade With Love is sure to be a welcome addition to the kitchens of longtime readers of the blog, In Jennie's Kitchen.

Jennie shares her love for her farmers' markets and local purveyors while dishing out a hearty dose of practical culinary know-how for the working parent—or any busy cook.

Jennie has been writing online since 2006, and developing recipes for more than 15 years, even after the sudden death of her young husband, Mikey, in 2011. Gathering her family together around the table was her recipe for healing; though many things about her life have changed, her commitment to eating for nourishment—physical and spiritual—has not. A seasoned recipe developer and personal chef, Jennie has crafted shortcuts (like two homemade all-purpose baking mixes, used as a base for baked goods such as breads, muffins, and cupcakes) to make good eating just a little easier. Try recipes like Orange-Scented Waffles, Carrot Fennel Soup, Lentil Ricotta Meatballs, Drop Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie, Strawberry Blender Sherbet, and Lemon Buttermilk Doughnuts. Simple, soulful recipes for every meal of the day emphasize farm-fresh produce and whole foods. Jennie's distinctive voice is an evangelist for eating close to home, lingering around the table.

Jennifer Perillo  is the food editor at  Working Mother  magazine, contributes to the Food Network blog, and worked in notable New York restaurants Gramercy Tavern and Alain Ducasse at the Essex House. Her recipes have appeared in  Parenting, Kiwi, and  Relish  magazines, and she publishes In Jennie's Kitche...

Editorial Reviews

“I love the recipes in this collection: The ingredients are common, the cooking techniques simple and easy to learn. There is nothing complicated here except for the melding of flavors and textures that make cooking and baking an art.” –Houston Chronicle“A cookbook of healthy, delicious basics, whose warmhearted author shares the joy she finds in cooking for those she loves.”Shelf Awareness“Perillo laces touching personal stories with thoughtful, achievable techniques and recipes that give conventional home cooking a serious upgrade. Drop Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie, Ginger-Lime Slow Roasted Carrots and Rosemary, and Pecorino Popcorn are among the standouts. A great starter book for intrepid, first-time cooks.”New York Daily NewsElise Bauer, creator of SimplyRecipes.com"The proper way to read Jennifer Perillo's Homemade with Love is curled up in a crocheted blanket your grandmother made, on a comfy couch with a cup of tea or hot chocolate. It's that kind of book.  With gentle prose, simple and delightful recipes that should be in every home cook's repertoire, and beautifully photographed, this book is one you will cherish."  Melissa d'Arabian, host of the Food Network's
