Rediscover the simple pleasure of cooking for those you love with more than 100 delicious recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and, of course, dessert.

Rosie Daykin, founder of Butter Baked Goods and bestselling author of Butter Baked Goods and Butter Celebrates!, realized early on that her talent in life is feeding others. For her, cooking is a way of starting a conversation--a way of saying "thank you," "I love you," or simply "tell me about your day"--with something much tastier than just words.
Rosie's cooking is as unfussy and straightforward as it is delicious and beautiful. 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 a warm, humorous cookbook full of easy-to-follow recipes destined to become new favorites. It is a celebration of everyday life at home, filled with beautiful photography, funny stories, and Rosie's love of blue and white stripes. Let Me Feed You is the perfect gift for yourself, or for anyone in your life who has fed you, or loved you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rosie has done it again! Having throughly enjoyed her previous 2 baking books, I was curious about this overall cook book. It does not disappoint! It is full of favourites from comfort foods to more challenging recipes. If you want more meal suggestions or need to update some old classics, this is a good choice. I'm loving all the sandwich ideas and Paul's Lasagna has become a perfect Saturday night supper.

Read from the Book

From the Introduction I’m sure that, for some of you who have gotten to know me through my previous books, it might be hard to imagine me outside of the bakery. Even those who know me personally are probably quicker to associate me with cake and pie than meatloaf and soup. I am, after all, the “Butter Lady.” But bakers, like all humans, can’t live on sweets alone. And my passion for baking really stems from my passion for all food, and for using food as a way to connect with others. I find that offering someone a meal, a snack, or simply a cookie is like starting an edible conversation when the chaos of everyday life prevents me from finding the words. Popcorn and grilled cheese sandwiches were a way for me to make small talk with the older boys when I was young, just as a big piece of lasagna and a glass of wine ask Paul to tell me about his difficult day now. Remembering to prepare India’s favorite dinner every year for her birthday is just one of the million ways I tell her I love her, and so much tastier than words alone. Cooking for others has always been my way of communicating and demonstrating how I feel, and in a world chock-full of different skill sets, it’s quite literally what I can bring to the table. My hope is that you’ll find the recipes in this book as delicious and satisfying as they are straightforward and achievable. I truly believe that even the most novice cook can find success with my recipes—for if cooking is a language, I try to avoid the big words. Given how busy everyday life can be, I don’t believe that a comforting home-cooked meal should complicate it further. So I’ve got my fingers crossed that somewhere on these pages, you’ll discover a favorite new dish (or two, or three . . . ), and that you will be inspired to set the table, call for those you love to join you, and start a conversation of your own.
