“Savory Sweet Life is the perfect title for this book. Most of us either cook or bake; Alice Currah does both--beautifully. Savory Sweet Life offers a peek into Alice’s kitchen, one simple celebration at a time…she shares creative, appealing recipes that bear all the signs of a savvy cook.” (Pam Anderson, author of the Perfect Recipe series and How to Cook Without a Book)
“I’ve been a fan of Savory Sweet Life from the beginning, because Alice pours her heart and creativity into everything she cooks, bakes…and writes. I could marry Alice’s Caramelized Onion Clam Dip and live happily ever after with her Rustic Spiced Plum Tart. You’ll want to savor every yummy dish!” (Ree Drummond, author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks)
“Savory Sweet Life is cover-to-cover crowd pleasers.... Alice Currah offers classic dishes and fresh variations…. And kid-friendly treats such as root beer floats, oven-broiled s’mores and caramel corn, are great for little ones, or even adults that just want to feel like a kid again.” (Seattle Weekly)
“A must-have [with] its focus on organizing dishes according to events, and not just holidays. Hosts will appreciate simple but impressive fare like an olive, pesto, and tomato tart . . . and sweet and spicy wings, which come together with minimum fuss and seldom a hard-to-source ingredient.” (Publishers Weekly)
“If you’re thinking of buying food blogger Alice Currah’s new cookbook, “Savory Sweet Life,” make sure you’ve got some free time ahead of you - because once you see the luscious pictures inside, you’ll want to get into the kitchen immediately.” (Huffington Post)
“Currah’s approach to food is simple and family-friendly, but she elevates everyday from ordinary to extraordinary. Savory Sweet Life is a good choice for the home cook who wants to feed his or her family delicious food that is easy to prepare.” (Shelf Awareness)

Two days after I purchased the book, I had a coffee date scheduled at home. I decided to try making the peach croissants.This was a gutsy move for me because I have never used puff pastry and did not even know where to find it at the grocery store. Well, I was so pleased and proud that they turned out just right. They even looked almost as beautiful as the photo in the book. Best of all they really did taste like a bakery confection! WOW.
OK so now I'm on a roll. I have enough confidence to try something else. The next day I made the Chop Chop Salad for dinner. It turned out beautiful-picture perfect- and got rave reviews from the family.
There is another element of this cookbook that is fabulous. The recipies do not require more than a few ingredients and do not require loads of preparation time.
I adore this book. I am no Martha Stewart but I don't need to be now that I have this cookbook. I can prepare and serve delicious and gorgeous food with confidence. Thank you Alice Currah.
So far, I've made the Thai marinated chicken skewers (so amazing and full of flavor, and SIMPLE to make), the accompanying coconut sauce (which I could drink by the gallon by itself--also really easy to make), the cucumber salad, the heavenly almond pound cake (though this has a sinful amount of butter [4 sticks] and cream cheese [8oz] in it, but is certainly delicious and melts in your mouth), and finally, Alice's "best ever chocolate chip cookies."
Now, while I can't say that they are truly the best ever, given that there are probably, literally, a million different chocolate chip cookie recipes out there, these cookies are definitely up there. Very soft, chewy, and great ratio of chocolate to dough. If you care to try Alice's cookie recipe, she has it posted on her blog, and once you make it you should know that they are a preview to how good the other recipes are in her cookbook.Read more ›
