The Joy Of (Reading About) Cooking
I can't boil water, but I found myself sucked into reading several lengthy articles on cookbooks. In one, they discuss the new revamping of "Joy Of Cooking" which hopes to undo the damage of the LAST revamping of "Joy Of Cooking." (I can't find online the even more entertaining article about the various feuds surrounding that project. And yep, I've got a copy of it in my kitchen. I don't cook, but apparently there's some sort of law about this.) Another piece talks about the eternal desire for people to find the cookbook they grew up with or that their momma used -- I'm not gonna rest easy until I find my own copy of "Cooking For You Alone" by Johnny Mathis.
