From the Author:

This cookbook is about great memorable food, family and friends, and celebrating the joys of everyday life. As I developed the recipes I was mindful of how busy families are these days and the reasons why people are too busy to cook, intimidated by a lack of confidence in the kitchen, or a combination of both. I wanted to write and photograph a cookbook that I could use (from a practical standpoint) everyday to feed my family, draw inspiration from, and have my kids someday recall their favorites recipes from their youth with a strong feeling of love and connection to me. I also wanted to write a cookbook which was a true representation of my life.

Chapters dedicated to both Mother's Day and Father's Day, birthdays, potlucks, hosting friends for lunch, Sunday mornings, meals for caring for others, summer entertaining, and many more will inspire you to cook with confidence and with ease. With each recipe accompanied by a gorgeous color photo, they are easy, accessible, and so delicious that people will think you are a gifted home cook based on how good the dishes are.

In case you're wondering if I actually cook these recipes throughout the year, the answer is a resounding YES! All the time! Several of my closest friends can vouch for how often I bring these recipes to parties and potlucks. The recipes in the cookbook are indeed my go-to dishes for feeding family and friends for any occasion.  From our home to yours, we hope you enjoy SAVORY SWEET LIFE.

From the Back Cover:

The creator of the acclaimed SweetSavoryLife.com food blog, a wife, and a mother of three, Alice Currah knows that the food we share with the people we love is more than just what we eat—it's an extension of who we are. Whether it's a leisurely weekend morning coffee cake, a birthday banana cream pie, chocolate chip cookies after a well-played soccer game, or a refreshing strawberry lemonade at a summer backyard barbecue, life's simplest moments can create the most meaningful family memories.

Savory Sweet Life helps you create your own delicious memories all through the year with 100 easy-to-make—and many all-new—recipes, organized by occasion and captured in full-color photographs to celebrate your own "life happenings." From a Mother's Day Breakfast in Bed to a Tween Birthday Bash, an Afternoon Tea Party to a Welcome Home gathering, a Valentine's Day to a Christmas Morning, here are dozens of simple and flavorful recipes, using basic supermarket ingredients, that are quick and easy to prepare:

  • Sunday Mornings—Cinnamon Coffee Cake Muffins, Spinach Ricotta Quiche, Breakfast Pizza
  • Lunch Between Friends—White Chicken Chili, Strawberry Spinach Salad, Tomato Pesto Olive Tart, Crab Lemon Basil Pasta
  • Summer Fun in the Sun—Mango Frozen Yogurt Pops, Parmesan Ranch Popcorn, Oven Baked S'mores
  • Potlucks—Spicy Bacon Spinach Artichoke Dip, Creamy Pesto Pasta Salad, Heavenly Almond Pound Cake
  • Family Game Night—Baked Kale Chips, Red Cabbage Pico de Gallo Salad, Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Tacos, The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

In the warm, down-to-earth voice that has charmed fans of her blog, Alice shares personal stories, practical advice, time-saving tips, and delicious, easy-to-make real-life food everyone will love. "It's my sincere desire that the recipes in this book will become new family favorites to celebrate both everyday and special occasions. Whether you're warming up to a hot cup of cocoa on a blustery December day or are in need of a refreshing treat to keep you cool during the summer, the food from this book will help you benchmark the good stuff in life for years to come."
