This photo has nothing whatsoever to do with today's post. I just happen to like looking at it.I have said over and over that I do not expect my readers to slavishly follow my recipes. I have even stopped giving very specific recipes. I want us all to be inspired by each other, to both, beg, and steal ideas and make them our own. One source of incomparable inspiration is Mary of One Perfect Bite. She tells great stories in impeccable English and pulls no punches about what a given recipe may or may not bring to the greater cosmos. Here's to you Mary, and may your considerable number of followers continue to take comfort and direction from your excellent guidance.
Do recall that the "recipe whisperer" is available for your culinary dilemmas. Tell me what you don't like and why. By the weekend I will conjure up a solution or two for you. I'm still looking for help for myself with red cabbage (I've had one promising proposal), or something to make whole wheat pasta palatable.
