In this digital, overscheduled age, How to Celebrate Everything helps us all slow down, capture the moments that matter, and eat well while doing it.
About How to Celebrate Everything:
“Families crave rituals,” says food writer and New York Times bestselling author Jenny Rosenstrach, the blogger behind the popular Dinner: A Love Story. Her previous books including the bestselling Dinner: A Love Story and Dinner: The Playbook deconstructed the ritual of daily dinner with inspired ideas and no-fuss tricks to actually make it happen for busy families everywhere.
Now in her new book, How to Celebrate: Recipes and Rituals for Birthdays, Holidays, Family Dinners, and Every Day in Between, Jenny explores how to make memories through the food we share by redefining celebration. For Jenny, it’s not just the big celebrations—Valentine’s Day dinners, Thanksgiving feasts, and Mother Day’s brunches—but the little ones. In her house, that includes making a bowl of creamy mashed potatoes after the braces get tightened, hosting a “bus stop social” to Bowl every year. Jenny is a warm, inviting guide and shares her family’s celebratory moments—simple and elaborate, daily and annual—with more than 100 time-tested recipes and menus, such as:
- Sleepover Breakfasts with popovers, apple fritters, and pancakes
- “Interfaith Sliders”: One version with ham and another with brisket (perfect for any holiday party)
- Her legendary Mud Cake, Donut Cake and Ice Cream Cakes—plus an entire section on birthdays with a one-size-fits-all party planner
- And, of course, dozens of dinners across the seasons, from grilled soy-glazed pork chops, crispy chickpeas with yogurt sauce and naan, and butter-fried, cinnamon-dusted pineapple chunks (read the book to find this recipe’s origin and holiday!)
