What People Are Saying

What People are Saying About This

Angie Dudley

“Deliciously photographed and lovingly shared, Alice’s recipes remind us to savor and celebrate life. To not just enjoy the meal, but to cherish the moments around them as well.”

Pam Anderson

“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.”

Ree Drummond

“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!”

Editorial Reviews

A bound version of Currah's popular blog of the same name, this collection of 100 comfort food dishes for all occasions and seasons is a mixed bag of interesting takes on classics (Mulligatawny Pot Pie), comfort food standards (including beef stew and chocolate chip cookies), and banal filler (she points out that a sharp knife makes for easy cutting, and a recipe for oven-broiled s'mores seems particularly unnecessary). But what makes this cookbook a must-have is its focus on organizing dishes according to events, and not just holidays. Currah provides suggestions for everything from Sunday mornings, a birthday party for a tween, Father's Day, potlucks, family game nights, Valentine's Day, a block party, a welcome home celebration, and more. Hosts will appreciate simple but impressive fare like an olive, pesto, and tomato tart; homemade biscotti; cucumber-mint tea sandwiches; and sweet and spicy wings, all of which come together with minimum fuss and seldom a hard-to-source ingredient. More time-consuming dishes include from-scratch cinnamon rolls, corn pudding, and a "molten lava cake" made with Nutella. For those without an upcoming event, Currah also organizes her offerings according to traditional categories and individual ingredients. Photos.
