Spoon Fed

Spoon Fed: How Eight Cooks Saved My Life by Kim Severson, Riverhead Books, 2010. 

So far (about half-way into the book) I'm really enjoying this very frank memoir about food, women, and finding a way back to happiness - in the kitchen.  I particularly love the personal anecdotes about food writers, such as Marcella Hazan, whose work I'm familiar with, but even more so, the ones about those with whom I'm not familiar, such as Marion Cunningham.  Makes me want to rush out and buy another cookbook...

Spring...it IS around the corner...

You know that winter is very nearly and truly over when the greenhouse, windowsills and every level surface in the house are covered with seed trays!  Is there any better scent than tomato foliage?  I didn't think so.
