Practical everyday recipes and kitchen tips gathered from beloved cookbooks and popular blogs have been the hallmark of Kristen Miglore's Genius series for Food52.com. Building on the success of Genius Recipes and Genius Desserts, Miglore focuses here on the simplest, most satisfying discoveries she has made.

In chapters dedicated to specific types of meals, from weekday breakfasts and pantry dinners to lunches and hands-off dinners, along with side dishes and desserts, she offers revelation after revelation, such as:

  • 15-second creamy scrambled eggs
  • no-knead foccacia
  • miso-infused cacio e pepe
  • white wine-simmered collard greens with oven-dried tomatoes
  • rice pancakes with ham & tomato-basil sauce
  • peach galette

Not every recipe cooks quickly, but they don't require fuss and tending. And it's wonderful to see that while Miglore has her eye on a wide range of contemporary cooks—part of the fun of her Genius books is discovering new people—she is also very aware of ideas from the likes of venerable writers such as Leah Chase, Jacques Pépin,  and Sally Schneider.

It's hard to resist the eye-opening possibilities this simple book presents. If you don't know what to buy for that cook who already seems to have every cookbook, this is one book that will be used.
