I was only recently introduced to SLT. I absolutely love their cookbooks and their store which I visited when I was in NYC. My first cookbook was their baking book, which is fabulous, so I decided to try this one out as well. I didn't realize that the book would be so tiny, but it's still a great book. The recipes I've made have all been very good. Some do require a bit more work than I'd like, but the results are very good so I usually feel that they end up being worth the time and effort spent.

One of the things I like most about SLT and Williams-Sonoma cookbooks is that they always have loads of picures - almost one picture for every recipe. While this may be trivial to some, I find myself most often using cookbooks that have pictures in them since they're what inspire me to actually make the recipe. I have a few Bon Appetit and Cook's Illiustrated cookbooks, but I find that I don't use them as often as I thought I would because there aren't many pictures. Their recipes are very very good, but with Bon App and CI I have to read through the entire recipe before I decide whether or not I want to make it. With SLT and WS, I take one look at the picture and say, "this looks fantastic. I'm making it!" I really wish SLT would come out with more cookbooks.

I typically avoid stocking up on cookbooks and tend to borrow from the library or visit websites such as WS and SLT for recipes to avoid having shelves of dust collectors, but the SLT and WS cookbooks are so lovely and useful that I can't seem to stop ordering them even though I can get most recipes for free online.

Format: Hardcover
Fortunately, there is absolutely no room for guilt when it comes to solace foods. The relaxation and comfort begins during the preparation of these luscious foods. All the dishes, from easy to more time consuming, offer feelings of accomplishment and contentment thanks to their ultimate journey... slowly introduced first through the nose, then into your mouth, across your taste buds and lovingly swallowed where it ends up inside your stomach. Ahhhh!

Comfort can sometimes be cooked up quickly, like the Buttermilk Biscuits or Griddled Cheese Sandwich. Others are best to plan ahead for and commit a few days to the total experience, such as the Beef Stew with Zinfandel and Dried Porcini Sauce or the Herbed Chicken Potpie. The beauty of these foods is that some of them can be put together for one or two on a luxurious chilly stay-at-home Sunday afternoon. Others offer themselves to be shared with a few best friends or family.

The folks at Sur la Table have put together another quintessential cookbook for any of us to dive into. I haven't yet made their Classic Extra-Cheesy Macaroni and Cheese, but my adult sons are going to get this next time they are home for a visit!

Sur La Table tells us in Simple Comforts that comfort food is "the kind of food that goes right to your soul and gives you a bit of tasty refuge from the stresses of the day." I certainly agree with that! Smells and tastes can easily bring back childhood memories for me and in Simple Comforts many of my favorite classic recipes are upgraded to give them a bit of a new twist. My favorite is the Cinnamon Streusel Sour Cream Coffee Cake, with its moist crumb and sweet spices and my husband loves the Luxuriously Retro Beef Stroganoff with Buttered Noodles. Macaroni and cheese is overflowing with baked cheesy, yummy goodness when cooked in a cast iron pan. And, of course, there are desserts, cookies, brownies, pudding and more. Every single recipe in Simple Comforts had me oohing and ahhing, bringing back wonderful memories and motivating me to get in the kitchen and cook up some comfort.

Format: Hardcover
This is a delightful little cookbook with lots of beautiful photos but best of all, tasty recipes featuring real comfort food. This is not a "health food" cookbook in that you won't find low-fat, sugar-free recipes. What you will find are recipes that use real ingredients like eggs, cheese, milk, and butter. Of course, one is always free to substitute low-whatever ingredients, but I sometimes wonder if substitutions make us end up eating more in an attempt to get the same level of satisfaction that a smaller amount of the real stuff would give. (I'm just saying.)

I tried the corn tortillas casserole which was delicious and I look forward to trying more from this book such as sour cream coffee cake, crispy fried chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, yukon gold and sweet potato gratin, and chocolate chunk bread pudding. Recipe categories include sweet breads, savory breads; soups, stews and sandwiches; main dishes, side dishes, and desserts.

Most of the recipes call for ingredients that can be found at larger grocery stores and substitutions are suggested for some specialty ingredients, such as monterey jack cheese if queso Chihuahua isn't available.

The beauty of this book makes it a great gift for any cook and the recipes are easy enough for beginners as well as more experienced cooks.

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited nor required. If I didn't like the book I would say so.
