A WASHINGTON POST BESTSELLER Popular food blogger and TODAY food contributor Siri Daly shares her collection of cooking triumphs and mistakes, and delicious recipes for people who love food. Like many of us trying to feed our families, Siri Daly is a very busy cook. As a mother of three under the age of 10, TODAY food contributor, and wife of a bicoastal traveling man, Carson Daly ("The Voice" host and TODAY show co-host), Siri often doesn’t know which end is up. Siri is not a serious cook, but she is serious about her food—and what she serves her family, friends and loved ones. Siriously Delicious is organized by how a busy mom gets through her day—breakfast, lunch, happy hour (her favorite!), dinner with sides, and dessert. Siri’s recipes are created with three goals in mind: to create food that is delicious and satisfying for both kids and adults, to prepare dishes packed with traditionally comforting flavors and ingredients (think cheese, avocado, chocolate!), and to make each recipe approachable for even a novice cook—no trips to specialty food stores are required. Whether you’re looking for easy-to-cook recipes your kids will devour, such as mouth-watering Bacon Pizzadillas, or you’re dying to relax with a Spicy Grapefruit Cocktail when the days feel too long, this cookbook has a recipe for every occasion. Siri also includes extra tips to make your time in the kitchen easier: Siriously Simple offers a hack or time-saving tip, Siriously Sinful details how to make something even more indulgent, Siriously Nutritious explains how to make something healthier, and Siriously Mini advises how to satisfy the kiddos. Filled with Siri’s often hilarious anecdotes, Siriously Delicious will not only feed your family’s bellies but hopefully deliver a belly laugh along the way.

Siriously Delicious: 100 Nutritious (and Not So Nutritious) Simple Recipes for the Real Home Cook based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
From the creative way to spell the title to all the wonderfully delicious recipes, this is a kitchen cooking inspiration. I found it jovial for her to mention and include “not so healthy” recipes along with the nutritious ones. So there is bound to be something in there for everyone you’re cooking for including your own personal preference. This is what I, and it sounds like many others, have found. These recipes are simple, easy to follow, and able to accomplish a great finish. I received a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
If you want a recipe book that is packed with delicious healthy (and not so healthy) recipes that are packed with flavor, this is the book for you. It's family friendly, and includes plenty of recipes for the various diets and lifestyles out there. If you are a foodie (like me), you will be happy with how every single dish is bursting with flavor. The majority of the recipes are very simple to make, but more importantly, it is designed to cater to what you have in your home. So many of the ingredients can be swapped out for like ingredients, which means you do not have to adhere 100% to the recipe. Siri had that in mind when she put this cookbook together, because when you have a family of 5 waiting for dinner, you can't always drop everything to run out and get a missing ingredient. She gives you a guidebook on how to create each dish, but knows you may need to work with what you've got.
Siri Daly, the wife of Carson Daly has brought us this awesome cookbook. Unlike some cookbooks you don't have to travel to all the grocery stores in town hoping to find the ingredients for the recipes. Siri has come up with these recipes that are pantry friendly. Just flipping through the book I noticed I would not have to go to the store in order to make several recipes in the book because everything was already in the pantry. Not only are these recipes Pantry friendly thy are also family friendly even for the kids, and time friendly. Most of the recipes in the book a easy to make. They are tasty and nutritious. I love to cook personally and can make just about anything I set my mind too. But this book is made for the average home cook and you do not need special skills in order to make these recipes even though they may taste like you do. I received this book from the Author or Publisher at Netgalley.com in exchange for my honest opinion.
Starting at the beginning, with the introduction, the first thing I noticed was how funny, and full of life author Siri Daly is. For me, starting any book off with a laugh is a good thing. Yes, even a cookbook. The second thing I saw is how much Ms. Daly loves her family. She includes them in this book every chance she can through stories, and photos. Did someone mention photos? Anyone who has read my cookbook reviews know that the lack of photos in a cookbook is a big pet peeve of mine. So, a big thank you to the author for including photos of all the dishes! Siri Daly has packed the pages of SIRIOUSLY DELICIOUS with a lot of healthy recipes that sound and look fantastic. That’s a big statement for me to make because healthy eating isn’t my thing. I’m eating potato chips as I write this review. Luckily for me, she’s included some recipes that aren’t as healthy too. Here’s a sampling of some of the tasty treat you’ll find. Chorizo Hash Breakfast Burritos, Egg-in-Hole Avocado Toast, Dark Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding, Italian Orecchiette Pasta Salad, Crab-and-Corn Chowder, Grilled Cheese Roll-Up Dippers, Chickpea Burgers, Summer White Peach Sangria, Mojito Mule, Spinach Balls, Smashed Pea and Ricotta Toast, Pan-Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Rainbow Potato Salad with Crispy Shallots, Cookie Butter Truffles, Angel Food Cake with Vanilla Strawberries, and so many more! A lovely cookbook with a great variety of recipes, SIRIOUSLY DELICIOUS is seriously delightful.
I became slightly concerned while reading the forward for Siriously Delicious when the writer indicated that even with her recipe, she was not able to reproduce the same results as Siri. The comment seemed to feel that Siri is the secret ingredient which makes her recipes turn out better and even with her recipe one could not achieve Siri level results. Hoping this was simply a compliment to the chef, I forged ahead in the cookbook and was glad I did. The recipes throughout are easy to follow. Of course, I can’t know what Siri‘s results would taste like, but I think my results will be pretty great. The introduction to each of the recipes interesting and worth the read, many recipes include tips as well. After the introduction, the recipes are divided into six categories: Wakey Wakey! Halftime It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere Time For Dinner Sidekicks Sweet Treats After the recipes, you will find included a conversion table and index.
