It’s kind of hard to resist  Smitten Kitchen. The woman behind the blog, Deb Perelman, visits the Food Republic Today studio to talk about the continued success of her long-running site, why she and her family still live in Manhattan when so many have decamped to Brooklyn and the ‘burbs, and, of course, her long-awaited second cookbook, Smitten Kitchen Every Day: Triumphant And Unfussy New Favorites. Before the news, co-hosts Richard Martin and Krista Ruane, a veteran recipe developer and food stylist, discuss tips for making gingerbread houses. We wrap up with another holiday carol, performed by Food Republic Today producer Katie Guhl.

Today’s News:

  • Croissants are taking on a new look all over New York City and we’re all about it.
  • New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio is leading a crackdown on food delivery e-bike riders.
