Sounds amazing. Can't wait to hear more!


Thank you--this is the most creative roast chicken I've run across in a long time, and the most appealing. Definitely making this.


i rented the book from the library and now i am going to purchase it. LOVE IT!!!! u should be proud. since i had twins, i'm more picky with the books i buy. i never thought i would be interested in this but i first ur entries, then i read the recipes. hanks for all the veg. you r fricking hilarious. most excellent. hope it does amazingly well (and now i'm going to try to go to the farmer's market, too). your cousin in staten island.


Yay—Kitchen Diaries according to Melissa!
Congrats on the new kid on the block. Can't wait to see the final product.

Oh, you are going to tempt us all spring and summer until your book is available in September? I'm definitely in to sample each monthly "offering". Thanks!

This is a brilliant winter dish, thanks. I made quite a few of your suggestions last year, including my Recipe of the Year for 2010 -


Boozy fruit, dude. Bless you for boozy fruit.


I wrote a comment last night but I don't see it...I am so excited about the new book!!! Thanks so much!! Can't wait!!!! If it is as great as In the Kitchen with a Good Appetite...we are in for a treat!!


I'm really intrigued by the addition of chickpeas. It's such a pretty looking roast too!


Is the Blood Orange Olive Oil Cake included in the new book? I recently decided to make it again as a bundt cake. I had to make 1.5 times the recipe in order to have enough batter and it works beautifully except for one annoying little defect. I've been plagued by a purple-bluish color that shows up around the orange segments in the cake. It tastes delicious of course, but the blue hue isn't particularly appetizing to the eye. Any suggestions?


Can't wait Melissa. You're recipes never fail to blow me away, from the simple to the stunning, they always work, are not too fussy, and are always well tested. You are definitely my "go to" when it comes to new kitchen inspiration. Keep up the good work!

I am looking forward to the new book! I really enjoyed 'In the kitchen with a good appetite'. I especially like your granola recipe (which I just posted about), but everything I have made so far has been excellent.


Is it possible that this recipe is better than the one with the roast chicken with the over-sized croutons?! We'll see ;-).


I just made this chicken tonight and it IS delicious! The gremolata certainly rounds out the dish. I highly recommend that everyone try to make this at least once...


Wonderful - congratulations, and I'll look forward to buying the book! In the meantime, thanks for the sample recipe!! The chicken looks divine!
