|Chocolate Peanut Butter Globs|
I started young. My childhood friends Becky and Cally were older and wiser (and more normal) and helped me to rid myself of any of these sorts of tendencies which might have done long-term damage to my social life or created unnecessary paranoia in those around me. Thanks, Becky & Cally. (Sorry, Mr. & Mrs. R.)
Anyway, I was thinking of this because one of my birthday presents from my thoughtful parents-in-law was the latest cookbook by the ever-reliable Ina Garten. Before setting it on my display shelf of favorites I had to stop and breathe in its untouched pages. New or old, I love the smell of books.
In this instance, I also love the look. I mean, look at those crostinis!
|Crispy English Potatoes|
|Roasted Asparagus & Prosciutto|
|Tomato Crostini with Whipped Feta|
|Sidecars with Dried Cherries|
I plan to put her to the test, and to enjoy every bite (and whiff) of it.
