Quote of the Day

What seems like many moons ago, when I was working in publishing, I started to refer to Real Simple as "Real Stupid" like many of my print industry pals. Not nice, not nice, I know -- but kind of funny. I mean isn't every issue 10 great ideas for pasta and how to (re)organize your shoes? Truth be told, I often try recipes from Real Simple because they are, well... really simple. And sometimes yummy. And a lot of times I could use an idea for pasta, even though I have quite a lot of experience cooking it.

My favorite part of the February 2010 issue, however, is the quote on the spine: "A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness." -- Elsa Shiaparelli. Kinda makes me want to don a shocking pink apron in her honor.

I hope you gals have both read MFK Fisher, cover to cover. I have a fried oysters story xeroxed that I hand out to people on those occasions when, you know, fried oysters come up.

It sounds like you're a gal who thinks just like we do! I have barely scratched the surface of MFK Fisher, and your comment makes me wonder what is available for Kindle. Gotta check that out! Thanks for posting!
