    This book is a girly and adorable mix of prose, photos, and recipes for newlyweds or anyone. The author can write well with imagery and cook well; she worked for the Food Network. As I read I learned about ingredients, equipment, strategies, and nutrition, from in the kitchen all the way to out of the kitchen i.e. outside around a campfire. I hope to continue to use this book as a reference for some of the simpler dinners and yummy desserts. My only suggestion to the creators would be to include This book is a girly and adorable mix of prose, photos, and recipes for newlyweds or anyone.

My only suggestion to the creators would be to include a picture on all the pages, not just some, for the rookie chefs like myself who could benefit from a visual of each recipe as a guide.

    This cookbook was given to me as an engagement gift. It is my go to cookbook in my little collection. The recipes are delicious, the little stories behind the recipes are sweet, and the pictures are beautiful.

    My friend Brett thought long and hard about what he was going to gift to my husband and I for our wedding. This was one of his gifts and I'm truly grateful. I'm an avid cook and baker, so this book was great to help me refine my style in the kitchen. I've learned so much. I don't need to use baking soda in a brownie recipe. I can use just the yokes to make cookies. Thyme is a great herb for fried foods. The list goes on.

As suggested my husband and I have been cooking these recipes together and it's truly been a great journey. The recipes has us both swooning! It's also helped with prepping our camping honeymoon. I also loved learning more about Hungarian culture and foods. The new kinds of ingredients are great too. There are fast recipes and slow ones. Simple and complex. And sections for people who grow their own food, such as moi! I recommend this book for people looking to take their cooking to the next level in ways much easier than expected as well as those looking to impress their spouse, date, or even themselves. Nothing wrong with romancing yourself!

    At first this book brought about a large amount of scepticism, a feeling of weariness and a small shout of "why?" Maybe it was the twee-sounding title, maybe it was the expectation of what it surely will include. Who knows really what caused the equivalent of a large, audible sigh from this reviewer! Things did not get much better as one started to read the introduction text. It seemed to try, yet fail, at being a sort of self-help "you can do it" style of book.

Maybe it was the twee-sounding title, maybe it was the expectation of what it surely will include. Who knows really what caused the equivalent of a large, audible sigh from this reviewer! Things did not get much better as one started to read the introduction text. It seemed to try, yet fail, at being a sort of self-help "you can do it" style of book. Maybe there are cultural differences at play? Of course, you can't please everybody all of the time, yet this book just seemed to tick all of the wrong boxes. Each and every one! That is until you got to the food. Then things looked up. Oh yes! Here the author managed to find a fresh new approach for the fairly typical introduction to various ingredients, pantry staple items and "cook's essentials". Bizarrely the combination of text, photography and style drew in this already cynical, slightly bad-tempered reviewer to take a closer look and keep reading. After all, even the best of them (and reviewers) can find something new to learn, whether it be a new approach, method or totally new factoid. Is redemption coming? Once you get ensnared in this section there is a LOT of information and this is by no means an attempt at padding. Even allowing for the geographical differences such as farmers' markets in the U.S., the book keeps on giving knowledge-wise. So maybe the book's initial focus and approach just didn't gel for this reviewer. This is a shame as many casual readers might take the same approach and pass on by, unlike this reviewer who has to look at this book for better for worse (did you notice the wedding tie-in there?). Starting with brunch, assuming that newlyweds won't be getting up that early to have breakfast, you can find some rather tasty-looking recipes to possibly die for, or at least to break the diet for. Some of the titles are bemusing to the uninitiated, such as Dutch Babies (German Puffed Pancakes) with Poached Rhubarb but they do look, thanks to the great photography, sublime. The recipes are written in a comprehensive, business-like manner and you can easily follow the stages to great effect. It would have been nice to have an approximation of preparation and cooking times, particularly when you consider the presumed target audience that inevitably have busy lives, but c'est la vie. It is amazing how diverse and different the recipes appear. Many of them use and combine ingredients that you might not think possible, yet it is not a case of combining for combining's sake as they just seem so harmonious, so perfect, so right for each other. After brunch the chapters are split into Little Meals; Supper; Comfort Food; Date Night; Vegetables; Embellishments; Indulgences; Gatherings and finally Escapes. Throughout the chapters is a lot of useful side information that you might miss if you use this book as a pick and cook resource. Despite the chapters roughly sorting out the recipes, you should take time to familiarise yourself with the book to really make the most out of it. You do not need to be a newlywed, or even married, to make the most of this book. It is a bit like an iceberg with a lot of (good) material hidden beneath the surface. That is a shame as the author deserves a lot of praise for managing to present such a wide, diverse range of "I want to try"-recipes in one place. Sadly, in this reviewer's view, the execution or the packaging makes it less desirable. But consider biting the bullet nonetheless and give this book a try. Play the wildcard joker if you will. Without the "bad start" this would have been a clear five YUM book, with the bad start it would have been a credible three YUMmer. Yet there are so many interesting, different recipes here that are not variations on a theme that a compromise has to be made! (Hint to publisher: let the sequel to this book, cut in the same vein, stand on its own strong merits … no 'Keep your Marriage Fresh with Food"-style please!. Frying pans and books can fly surprisingly a long distance with sufficient propulsion!). The Newlywed Cookbook, written by Sarah Copeland and published by Chronicle Books.

    I bought this book 2 years ago right after my wedding. I rarely use to cook; I was a full-time grad student and my kitchen was stocked with appliances from Goodwill. But after my wedding shower, where I practically received an entirely new kitchen, I wanted a great cookbook to test out all my fun new appliances. This book quickly became my version of "Julia and Julia"; I made it my goal to try as many recipes as I could in our first year of marriage.

I rarely use to cook; I was a full-time grad student and my kitchen was stocked with appliances from Goodwill. But after my wedding shower, where I practically received an entirely new kitchen, I wanted a great cookbook to test out all my fun new appliances. This book quickly became my version of "Julia and Julia"; I made it my goal to try as many recipes as I could in our first year of marriage. My husband and I recently moved out of our first apartment, but every time I open this cookbook I get a warm sense of nostalgia. It reminds me of how excited I was to try a new recipe and cook with my husband in our first home. What is to love: Great introduction; beautiful pictures; easy recipes. Here are the recipes we have tried so far: Oatmeal yogurt pancakes-strawberries or raspberries also make a great crush. Rise and Shine muffins-I freeze these and grab one when heading to work. They unthaw by the time I get there (~1hour). 2% greek yogurt on these is a must! I calculated them to be: 17 muffins/batch; each muffin=242 calories, 13.3g fat, 29.3 carbs, 3.5g protein, and 3g fiber (Add in ground flax seed to give them more fiber). Oatmeal scones- SO GOOD. Golden Zucchini bread Overnight egg and cheese strata-My husband had me make this for him 2 weekends in a row. It was that good. We used smoked fontina cheese and fresh multigrain oat bread (Mariano's deli section) Open-face egg sandwiches-I make this with an over easy egg, dill mayo, and arugula on Mariano's multigrain bread or an english muffin. The paprika adds the perfect touch of flavor. Man Sandwich Fried rice-Let the rice get brown and crispy. Linguine with sausage and easy egg sauce-One of our favorite easy dinner recipes; I love the hint of lemon. Double-dip roast chicken Homemade Gnocchi with summer beans-Loved this except for the tarragon leaves. I'm not a fan of licorice. SWIRLS OF SPAGHETTI with sweet corn and mushrooms: FAVORITE. My Italian father loves this dish. Baby bellas and shitake mushrooms work great too. Big-flavor short ribs-Made it for Valentine's day. It was the perfect date night meal. Don't You Dare mashed potatoes-Use 2% greek yogurt! Marinated Olives-Trader Joe's picholine olives are perfect for this. Warm cherries with pistachio ice cream-invest in a high quality pistachio ice cream. Berries and Cream Biscuits- serve with vanilla bean ice cream and lots of whipped cream. BITTER SWEET CHOCOLATE TART- STAPLE RECIPE. In my family, everyone has a signature dish they are asked to bring to family parties: Auntie Di's cheese ball, Aunt Chris's sugar cookies, and now, Jill's chocolate tart. I use ghirardelli bittersweet dark chocolate bars and SEA SALT. Lots of SEA SALT after it cools and top with raspberries. Rhubarb upside down cake- This is super sweet and delicious, but lots of sugar. It's perfect to make once a year when rhubarb is in season. Better than boxed chocolate cake-OMG. Just make it. You'll see. Deep dark secret cookies Thousand-layer chocolate chip cookies: They remind me of the large flat cookies you can buy in the bakery section. They are perfect for ice cream sandwiches. Scratch Sangria Venezuelan chocolate shake-We add crushed oreos. These are also good, but I already had staple versions of these recipes: Make ahead lasagna-The Italian in me prefers ricotta, but cottage cheese was a good substitute. I also have the Atlas pasta maker. If you love cooking, I highly recommend investing in this. Fresh lasagna noodles are divine (Avoid the Kitchenaid pasta maker. It broke my first mixmaster and I had to return both of them). Mac cheese-In our house, this is a whatever-cheese-is-in-the-fridge recipe. One of my favorite combos is gouda, monetary jack, and cheddar. Top with buttered bread crumbs or panko crumbs. French onion soup-If you only have chicken broth this is good, but I prefer a mix of chicken and beef broth. I also caramelize onions in the oven. My girl's brownies-Good, but I like gooey fudge brownies.

    I received this cookbook as a wedding present. I have not had the opportunity to make as much as I would like from it, but what I have tried has turned out delicious! The layout is great. I love the wide-range of recipes and menu options. The pictures are beautiful. The only thing I am not fond of is the subtitle that this cookbook is "with and for each other." Unless I've skimmed too quickly over the pages, every recipe listed is clearly written for Little Miss Wifey to cook for Bread-winner Hu I received this cookbook as a wedding present.

Unless I've skimmed too quickly over the pages, every recipe listed is clearly written for Little Miss Wifey to cook for Bread-winner Hubby. As far as I've seen, the implication is clear... now that you're married, you better cook for your man, please his belly, and make his marriage to you worth it. Like I said, I could have missed it, but this book is clearly written for the new wife, not the couple. Despite that I am still pleased with the recipes and overall content, as well as thankful for the gift.

    Currently my favorite cookbook, The Newlywed Cookbook has everything from down-home country cooking (like Southern Shrimp & Grits) to elegant "date-night" meals (like Fresh Pappardelle with Pork Ragu), guides on how to plant a garden to how to pack a picnic for two, and tips for hosting the greatest of gatherings for friends and family.

    Love this cookbook! The lasagna and carrot cake recipes are delicious. The thousand layer cookies were fun to make and also very tasty, although I thought they were best straight out of the oven. I like that the recipes include weights, especially for the baked goods. I can't wait to try more recipes from the book!

    In my newlywed state, I have too little time and money to be messing with the fancy recipes in this book. The narrative is lovely, but the recipes are way too out of my league. Thousand layer chocolate chip cookies? Sounds great but they look like a lot of work for the same thing I could make with an electric mixer.
