About Jessica Merchant
Jessica Merchant is a full-time recipe developer, blogger and content creator. She is madly, outrageously, inexplicably in love with food. Bacon makes her beam. Chocolate makes her shout from the rooftops with joy. Vegetables are her biggest frenemy. (Her perfect world would include none of them.) She has been writing the popular food blog, How Sweet It Is, since 2009, when she finally discovered a way to mesh her passion for building recipes with one of her other favorite things: writing. As a self-proclaimed food fanatic, she has shared her favorite recipes, daily ramblings and entertaining anecdotes with millions of, what she calls, her invisible internet friends, creating a large following and a vocal community on her site. In her spare time, she loves reading, writing fiction and practicing yoga. And margaritas. Obviously.

Jessica Merchant, creator of the popular food blog How Sweet Eats, has now created her first cookbook, Seriously Delish. Her playfulness jumps off the page in her inventive and incredibly delicious recipes, such as Amaretto–Butternut Squash Soup with Cinnamon Toast Croutons, Mini Crab Cakes with Sweet Corn and Blueberry Salsa, and Fleur de Sel Caramel Bourbon Brownie Milk Shakes. Her sense of humor, which brings millions of visitors to her site, shows through in chapter titles like “Breakfast (. . . for Dinner?)” and “Salad, Soups, and Vegetable-like Things (Ugh, if We Must).” Merchant makes food that people get excited about, nothing run-of-the-mill or expected. As an added bonus, all of the photographs in the book were taken by Merchant herself, giving her cookbook the personal touch that her fans love and newcomers will appreciate. Seriously Delish features imaginative recipes that are tasty and original and bring readers to a place where cooking becomes adventurous and food becomes fun.
