Deb is the incredible cook (and woman) behind smitten kitchen. Hers is not merely a food blog - it's a blog about perfect food. Deb's recipes are painstakingly tested, and then tested again and again by her family, and then posted on the internet so we can all be amazing home chefs. Whenever I need a fail-safe recipe - something that I know will be a hit - I head to smitten kitchen.
I bought myself a copy of her cookbook for Christmas - it's beautiful, just like the online version, and when you open it up, the pages stay open. It's a miracle of cookbook engineering.
Deb hosted a Q&A and book signing at Manuel's Tavern last Thursday. We were there early, but not early enough.
|Very Excellent and I got Blue Moons while we waited.|
After a fight with Buckhead traffic, Deb arrived and answered our queries for a while.
|Horrible, grainy, close-up cell phone pic!|
Delightfully, I ran into a couple people I knew - including an old high school friend, Lucy!

She has her own corner of the interwebs - Flowers are Lovely. Stop by sometime and tell her I said hey.

Tomorrow, I'll recount my second blogging meetup from last week. Magical!
