As a former food editor and stylist for Martha Stewart, Tara knows how to create and showcase gorgeously themed meals for every lifestyle and occasion.
In her first cookbook, she shares more than 120 delicious showstopping recipes that are designed to impress. From leisurely weekend brunches spent over burrata cheese with grilled peaches and orange zest chimichurri to easy weeknight rice bowls with carrot-ginger dressing to a mouthwatering Italian crostata baked tart, Tara explains how to put together and master several special go-to dishes from the culinary capitals of the world to add to your repertoire.
The book also features a section where she provides a basic recipe which can then be easily transformed into two or three new recipes to make meal planning a breeze during busy weeknight schedules.
Live Life Deliciously with Tara Teaspoon shows serious foodies how to present food as an interesting and beautiful culinary experience with dishes that taste as delicious as they look.
The first thing I noticed when reading this cookbook is that Tara's worked for Martha Stewart. This kind of worried me because often Martha's recipes are too hard or too much for me to use. I was surprised that there were so many recipes I actually tried, liked, and have marked to try more.
The contents of the book are
- New Pantry Staples
- The Right Equipment
- Bites, Dips, and Snacks
- Salads, Bowls, and Dressings
- Side Love
- Weeknight Routines
- Flavor Inspired Dinners
- Meals for Gathering
- Morning Glories
- Sweets to Share
As you can see, there is a wide variety of recipes in this book. So many of them I would use when hosting a party or a family gathering. Some people may call them "Fancy" recipes and some require not as common ingredients. You will need to plan ahead to buy things needed for certain recipes.
Here are recipes I tried:
- Double-Cheese Garlic Bread
- Glazed, Bacon-Wrapped Sweet Potatoes
- Mile-High Buttermilk Biscuits
- Herb-Glazed Fall-Off-The-Bone BBQ Ribs
- Bakery-Style Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Some I really want to try in the future are:
- Lemon-Butter Salmon with Herbs and Cucumber Salad
- Thai Meatball Lettuce Wraps with Sweet Chili Sauce
- Giant and Glorious Blueberry Streusel Muffins
This cookbook will attract those who want to try some new recipes with a little more pizazz. Serving these meals will for sure impress.

Meet Author: Tara Teaspoon
I'm a former magazine food editor and trained chef, and food has become my life!
I spent many years working with Martha Stewart, (read about my Martha Stewart Omelet!) coming up with beautiful and delicious food for her publications.
I've been in the food publishing and magazine industry for over 20 years, creating recipes and articles, and food styling for magazines, books, television and advertising.
After spending time as a Food Editor at Martha Stewart Living, I was the Food Director at Ladies' Home Journal magazine (one of the original 7 Sisters of women’s magazines. The 131 year legacy was awesome).
As the industry has changed, I've moved into sharing my recipes online, here on the blog, and consulting with brands and other publications.
