Ever Thought of Writing a Cookbook? Here’s a Recipe…

Anyone who likes to collect, edit or build recipes has probably thought about publishing their own cookbook. (Yeah, I’m talking to you.) I know I’ve thought about it a lot. I’ve got ten big binders of recipes I’ve collected, each of them at least two inches thick (some three). And there are a lot […]

Tomatoes, Tomatoes Everywhere; What to Do? East India Sauce!

This entry is part of a series, RdJ»

Wifey Brings Home the Bacon, er, Books

My spouse took a friend of hers on a road trip this past weekend. They headed over to my mom’s place so they could all play together with a massive pile of fabric. (At least that was their excuse.) I stayed home to babysit an ailing pup, and to generally goof off, drink beer […]

December BOM: The All-American Christmas Cookbook

No time to play today, but I want to share with you the December Book of the Month: The All-American Christmas Cookbook from Chronicle Books.

That’s Me on the Right, the Handsome One Giving Instructions

Today I set aside my NaNoWriMo aspirations (mostly) and met with three other learned scholars and businessmen. (Actually it was just Dr. C, the other Dr. C, and the other other Dr. C, and me. But it sounds so much more sophisticated the […]
