Small Victories is a chatty primer for the hesitant or unconfident cook but gives as much pleasure to those with years of kitchen experience. Rich in ideas, and far from basic in its span of recipes, this is a book that earns a place on any shelf. -Nigella Lawson
'Small Victories is so lively, so encouraging, and so filled with easy solutions that it's the perfect book for someone who loves food but is nervous in the kitchen. I'll be giving it to every young cook I know. -Ruth Reichl<br \><br \>I've been waiting for this book! I love Julia's cooking and had a few lessons from her. She knows how to make things that are easy, delicious, and chic! - --Sofia Coppola
Julia's SMALL VICTORIES is a HUGE VICTORY! It is the best cookbook ever; a stunning visual memoir that you'll soon have filled with post-its and turned-down pages. - --Sally Field
Small Victories is precisely the kind of book that I can give to two kinds of people: to my non-cooking friends to let them know they can build their game, and to my professional chef friends to prove that there is always more to learn and that simple doesn't mean dumbed-down. - --Mario Batali

The photos are drool-worthy and the ingredients are all things you will likely have at home or be able to grab with ONE trip to ONE store. There are a few exceptions, but not many and she notes these up front and offers substitutions.
I cook for my family of 5 each day, while running my own business and minding the household duties. I am so excited to cook from this book and make it a regular staple.
Something about Julia's manner reminds me of a mashup of Deb Perlman from Smitten Kitchen plus Ina Garten of Barefoot Contessa fame. She brings the "no nonsense, I cooked this in a tiny NY kitchen and tested it a thousand times" vibe of Deb with the basic, simple ingredients and "how easy is that?" vibe of Ina.
The end of the book concludes with 7 lists of 7 things you can do with chicken, ground meat, pizza dough, seafood, etc. the versatility is endless. And helpful, come 6pm when you're staring a fridge with various leftovers that need a little transformation.
Your families and belly will thank you! Dig in!
(This is my own opinion. I paid full price for my book and have no connection to the author or Amazon. I hate reading reviews and feeling duped at the end by folks who got it in exchange for their 'honest' review.)
