I'm wondering, was I the last food addicted blogger to read Molly Wizenberg's book The Homemade Life?
I love her blog Orangette, so when I got a gift certificate for Barnes and Noble for Christmas, she was on my must read list.
The book was as satisfying and as filling as her recipes. My only gripe is that she eats a lot of salads and makes them sound so delicious that we had salad for 3 nights, in January. And, I was forced to go out and buy a much more expensive bottle of Balsamic vinegar than I usually use.
I just want you to picture the two of us huddled around the table, an ice storm outside, winds blowing, schools canceled, scores of workmen heavily salting the streets... and we're eating salad. Of course, the salad was accompanied by warm, grain filled bread and our favorite Icelandic cheese, Hoefdingi. But still... Where's the soup? Where's the beef stew, the Coq au Vin, the meat pies... ?
Thank God she isn't a cannibal, for she's very persuasive ...
