Hi, I'm Hungry: Recipes Inspired By Everyday Moments


Hi, I'm hungry. And if you're reading this, you probably are too.

Meet your new best friend in the kitchen: Melissa Santell. She's a marketer, journalist, food stylist, photographer and founder of She's also the first person you'd text to have a Negroni with, the friend who brings Pear + Rosemary cupcakes to your birthday party, and a spunky New Yorker at heart.

Hi, I'm Hungry is Melissa's personally curated collection of life moments in the form of delicious and unique recipes. Each chapter is thoughtfully categorized by life's most anticipated occasions — so, when you have zero time to think about what to eat, Melissa's here to do it for you. Whether you're cooking to impress on date night, or are ravenously hungover after a happy-hour-gone-too-far (eh hem, Breakfast in Bread), this book has you covered.

Melissa incorporates a dash of nostalgia with recipes like PB&J Meringues, and ensures your brunch party will be a hit with her Bloody Mary Deviled Eggs. She even gives you permission to eat cake any damn day of the year with an entire chapter she likes to call, Unbirthday Cakes. Grandma Connie's Cheesecake is not to be missed! Seriously, she insists.

You'll learn everything from how to infuse notes of bergamot into sugar cookies to the secret to making kimchi fried rice better than the questionable take-out place down the street. With Melissa as your guide, you won’t have to look far for your ideal dish... or a healthy dose of sarcasm.

If you're ready to have fun in the kitchen, need some inspiration for a special (or any) occasion, or are just plain hungry, this book is for you. Let's eat!
