I must take a moment to recommend this book:
A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table by Molly Wizenberg of Orangette
It is so charming. I have it out of the library — it is overdue and have finished reading it, but she had me at the stewed prunes and chocolate bread, and I can’t bear to return it. This is juvenile I know, and fines are accumulating daily.
I have called the bookstore, and they have one on hold for me. I just can’t go through life not cooking those recipes and reading her stories, and they have eight copies, so I don’t have to.
Unfortunately Molly is taking a break from her blog. I am looking forward to new posts and reading the backfiles.
