"Funny and frank, Molly Yeh speaks for a new generation of cookbook authors. She charms us by laying bare both her cupboards and her vulnerabilities, and then wins us over completely with her innate confidence and joy in the kitchen. And with Funfetti Cake."
—Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, co-founders of Food52
"In life, things are generally interesting or gratifying. What we have here is a book that can do both. Like her homestead straddling state lines, Molly manages this woman-on-a-wire act not just in writing, but through comforting yet thought-provoking stories, regram-worthy photos, and some of the most delicious food I've ever made."
—Justin Warner, winner of Food Network Star, season 8
"Molly on the Range, like its author, is quintessentially American: a jumble of influences and backstories, somehow adding up to a joyfully eclectic whole. Molly’s background as a musician is clear here: the rigors of technique are simultaneously celebrated and undone by practical interpretation: how am I going to make this work on this farm, right now, today?"
—Nico Muhly, composer
"I've been a die-hard New Yorker for two decades. Molly on the Range makes me want to pack it all in and buy a farm down the road from hers so I can join the Ladies of Grand Forks Brunch Club, leave loaves of bread on each others' doorsteps and share hotdishes. Her world is cozy, kind, and delicious on every level.”
—Kat Kinsman, senior food and drinks editor, Extra Crispy
"Molly Yeh's new book is a gem: her stories (charming, funny, whimsical) make you want to befriend her, her recipes (clever, unfussy, tempting) beckon you to the kitchen and when you finish reading it through (because this is one of those rare cookbooks you actually read), you wish there was more."
—Janna Gur, author of The Book of New Israeli Food and Jewish Soul Food from Minsk to Marrakesh
"Molly and I both graduated from Juilliard and ended up shackled to stoves—a great testament to conservatory training. Her impeccable taste runs from Stravinsky to spätzle; I vouch for everything in Molly on the Range except for the deliciousness of marzipan. Marzipan is horrible."
—Doug Quint, Big Gay Ice Cream
"Molly on the Range strikes the perfect balance between quirk and comfort food: the sorts of spins on classics you’ll want to use to make your friends think you’re fun and cool. I’m sure she comes from a different planet, but everything is cute and funny and tasty there, and you’re definitely invited, you just need a space suit. She's a relatable and endearing food-loving weirdo, and our plates are all the better for it."
—Marian Bull, writer, former editor of Saveur and Food52

While some recipes are intimidating and seem like they may require more work, there are some great easy ones tucked away, often easily skipped or missed. For other more complex ones, what always surprises me is that they're actually not that hard at all! However, if you're just buying this book, I love these to start:
-Spaghetti and My Ex-Boyfriend's Meatless Balls
-The Token Green Salad
-Tomato and Squash Soup
-No-Knead Garlic Bread
-Brown Sugar Cookies
-Tahini Blondie Ice Cream Sandwiches
I love also how Molly Yeh has such a distinct voice. It feels like a friend talking to you and teaching you how to cook, so that I love to read from it as much as I love to cook from it.
If the "language" the other reviewer mentions bothers you, I encourage you to get a sense of humor and lighten up. Molly hardly uses it, and when she does it is so light-hearted, fun, and such a welcome authentic voice in a world where cookbook writing can be stuffy and pretentious.
I've bought this book for many friends, and recommend you do too!
Some of my favorite recipes inside include
- Pistachio Loaf (I adore pistachios and pistachio butter, this was a dream come true).
- Dark Chocolate Marzipan Scone Loaf (One of the reasons I bought the book, everyone wanted more, scones rae the best)
- Challah Waffles (I made them in the heart shaped waffle maker I have and they were beautiful)
- Brussel Sprout Rosti (the first Latkes I made for Channukah last year)
- The Token Green Salad (This is dependable for weeknight dinners as something everyone will like)
- Za'atar Monkey Bread (My friends were entranced)
- Sufganiyot (I used the dough to make donuts for my birthday and Channukah)
- Chicken Potstickers (One of my mother's favorite comfort foods, it passed her test)
Though honestly, everything inside is fantastic and it's really the best ever! I also adore her blog and searched for all of her recipes online and in the Forward.
I stumbled onto her blog last year and while many of the email blogs I subscribe to get deleted without reading (sorry, my bad!) I read and look at the pictures multiple times. I often save the recipes. But really, I prefer actual cookbooks, so I was thrilled when she announced this book was soon to be released.
Molly's stories and the names she gives some of her recipes make me want to be Molly's new best friend, but not in, you know, a creepy stalker kind of way. Thanks Molly, for opening a door onto your life and sharing your stories and recipes with the rest of us.
Not to mention, cake.

Jerusalem Bagel Hot Dogs
Funfetti Cake and many more....
The recipes are divided into chapters which are all named after a person or period in Molly's life, for example, Eggboy, Life on the Farm, Juilliard (her university), Chrismukkah (recipes inspired by Christmas and Hanukkah, Molly celebrates both).
Although I haven't made many recipes from it yet, I couldn't possibly give it less than 4 stars because it's been an absolute joy to read, so much more than just a cookbook. Would highly recommend!
