Book Review

I went to go visit one of my best friends last summer and she had the book How to Make Everything by Mark Bittman. I was instantly fascinated and skimmed to see what recipes were inside. I put it back on her shelf but I could not stop thinking about this book. I went to amazon and put it on my wish list. It was there for a year until I got the extra money to pay for it. I purchased it about a month ago and I absolutely love it. You can learn so much from this book about cooking. I thought cooking was and is a regional pastime but he covers the gauntlet. The possibilities are endless and it is inspiring to try everything! I must remember to pace myself though.

What cookbook inspires you?

P.S. Ackee the national fruit of Jamaica is missing.

Mmmmm Muffins

Today was a snow day for Irvington Public Schools and I enjoyed it by making some blueberry muffins. I love Au Bon Pain's blueberry muffins and I would love to know what is their secret ingredient. My muffins taste pretty good but it seems like I'm missing something. I will probably eat one or two and put the rest in the freezer. If you're single and love to bake. What do you do with your extra sweets?

I should save some for my kids, they'll eat it up.

Always experiment!
