Subscribe to the Smitten Kitchen Weekly Digest

Get your weekly Smitten Kitchen fix!

Every Monday morning, just when most of us are groaning our way back into the weekday grind, I send out a newsletter full of seasonal meal ideas, archive favorites, food links from around the web, a round-up of anything you might have missed the week before and event announcements, when relevant.

Here is how it looks:

And here are links to the last three months of newsletters, in case you want to see what you’ve missed.

It’s free and we would never share, sell or use your email address anywhere else (of course!). Should you grow tired of me (nooo!) a one-click unsubscribe is easy to locate at the bottom of the email.

Sound good? Sign up right here and your first email will arrive next week.

    I love your clear directions with pictures. I haven’t had a single flop with your recipes, and appreciate that you make me look good to those I’m feeding…

    Thank You!I just read one of your articles where you state you didn’t want to make something because you made it before, 2 years ago, I too don’t like to make the same stuff over and over. I am constantly trying new recipes and having food experiments. It is wonderful to know I am not alone!

    Thank you for your comments in today’s newsletter You were eloquent and to the point, and given these troubling and terrible times, where indeed presumptions of guilt and chasms of disparity for people of color are the norm, cannot be left unremarked upon. I imagine you could get push back and wanted to send support

    Your food blog is the only one I subscribe to. When I’m looking for something to cook or bake, I always check to see if you have a relevant recipe. I’ve gotten recipes from many other blogs, but with yours I actually read what you have to say. You are always, honest and frank, and speak about food as if you were in my head speaking for me. And when you do feel compelled to address something other than food, I agree wholeheartedly with the values you express. You are always thoughtful and forthright in your expression, whether it’s about produce you just purchased at the farmer’s market or BLM. I’ll forever be a fan. Thank you for the light you shine in the world.

  5. Deb, thank you for the excellent NYT article. I totally agree as do others I’ve shared/discussed it with. We are a tiny but amazing startup company that has lived through this pandemic with a total family-first attitude regardless of the cost. We’ve seen this scenario you describe with cherished employees who are incredibly stressed trying to walk the tightrope between responsible home schooling/parenting and growing this mission-driven business they passionately love.

    We have little hope of any immediate solution from federal or state governments but intend to support our parents through this season in every way we can.

    Any insights or inspiration as a result of your article would be greatly appreciated. Also any suggestions how we in the small business community can positively influence policy are welcome.

    Thanks, Deb!

    Hello, I don’t see anywhere else to comment on this so while I’m not writing to say anything about the newsletter I didn’t want to miss a chance to say OUTSTANDING about your column in the NYT today. Bravo. And thank you.

  7. I can’t wait to start using these recipes. I’m excited about so many of them.
    The positive comments assured me that they are easy to follow. Starting with the herb summer squash and potato torte tonight!

    Just stumbled across y’all. Looking at recipes and really loving it! When are you going to do an app? That would be awesome!

    I am wondering if you ever use recipe testers (home cooks) to test recipes for your newsletter or cookbook? I am recently retired, love to cook and try new recipes! I’ve been a recipe tester for America’s Test Kitchen and Jenn Segal for her new cookbook.
    If you have recipe testers, I’d love to volunteer!

      Thank you — I’m not hiring any recipe testers at this time (I usually only do so for cookbooks) but feel free to shoot me an email and I can keep it on file for when I’m hiring, although I haven’t yet decided what approach I’ll use this time.

    Hi: just wanted to let you know that we love the site and the chocolate cake recipe. But FYI, as a lawyer, you need to put a privacy policy and terms of use on this website. You’re collecting personal information and you need to cover yourself. Just thought you’d want to know.

    trying to print two different recipes…then I tried to send an email…all attempts have been thwarted..saying that either, images are still loading try again later..OR your email is not a good address, check my emails…

    before I get my IT guy/husband to check it out I wanted to see if the Recipe Search thing that I need to sign up for is the only way I can get a recipe printed…

    thanks for your time

    1. deb

      Hi Liz — There is a print icon that leads to a print template at the bottom of each recipe, where it says “DO MORE:” You can also click CTRL or ⌘ + P from any recipe post and it will take you to a streamlined print template. You can email me through the Contact form on the site:

    Several years ago I was sitting in my office and a friend of mine came running in breathless and said you won’t believe this. You love to cook, you love looking at gorgeous pictures of food and I found the perfect website for you. She then showed me your pictures on line and I swooned. I have been watching your recipes and pictures ever since. It was like a gift that she gave me. I have made many of your recipes, all wonderful, and your videos are fabulous. I had to write you and let you have become you are a part of my day that makes me smile.
    Thank you for sharing your love of food and your fabulous recipes.

    My niece, who is a big foodie, told me about this site. We had two meals she saw on Smitten Kitchen that were yummy.

    Just a thank you for reinstating the name under the archives recipes for easier reference. I asked last week and it was so quick! Is there a way to quickly navigate back to your website from this substack version of your newsletter?
    I also want to say that are my main go-to online and the only food blog/newsletter I regularly read… except for David Lebovitz, who is also an excellent writer. But your recipes are the only ones I actually use more often than any unless you just dont have what im looking for. And my place to try stuff for the adventure of it. If you ever get so really sick of cooking that youd like to write about something else besides food, I would read it ! I know it would be good.

    I was brought to your site from a link, on another cooking newsletter. I would love, to subscribe to yours. Thank you.
