In Everyday Dinners, Jessica gives us the tools and tricks to make that possible.
“Jessica is changing the dinner game with Everyday Dinners. Her recipes are easy, approachable, and so creative! I literally want to make everything from this cookbook!”—Gina Homolka, author of Skinnytaste
“There is nobody who puts modern, fun, delicious twists on classic dinners like my favorite food blogger, Jessica Merchant. Merchant makes the most mundane of all meal prep—the weeknight dinner—a cause for celebration. I’m making the Honey Dijon Pretzel-Crusted Salmon on Wednesday night and trying one of four Puff Pastry Pizzas on Thursday. This cookbook is not only dazzling, it’s a necessity for the busy at-home cook.”—Elin Hilderbrand, author of 28 Summers
“As a busy career mom with an even busier toddler, I think Jessica Merchant’s new book Everyday Dinners is an absolute lifesaver! Jessica has created the quintessential cookbook for the family starved for time and sensational meals.”—Jocelyn Delk Adams, author of Grandbaby Cakes
“Everyday Dinners is the answer to the monotonous question, ‘What’s for dinner?’ Jessica provides more than 100 recipes that will get you and your family excited for dinnertime. The recipes combine fresh ingredients with pantry staples that are easy enough for a weeknight meal, but still feel special.”—Maria Lichty, author of Two Peas & Their Pod Cookbook
“Jessica’s laid-back, flavor-forward recipes to getting dinner on the table (and actually enjoying the process and time with your family) are nothing short of fantastic. These fuss-free recipes are exactly what you want to have in your back pocket for every night of the week.”—Gaby Dalkin, author of What’s Gaby Cooking and Eat What You Want
“I want everything in this book. Literally everything.”—Molly Yeh, cookbook author and Food Network host
“Reading Everyday Dinners reminded me why Jess has been my favorite food blogger for ten years now. Her warmth, humor, and expertise is evident in every word she writes, and her recipes are just so good. To be honest, I have not been very on top of cooking at home or eating vegetables in recent months, but Everyday Dinners inspired me to start doing ten minutes of meal prep every day so I can make all of these incredible recipes.”—Rachel Miller, author of The Art of Showing Up
