No, no REAL update. Apparently I don't cook much anymore. The holidays knocked me far off track. I have cooked here and there, but nothing new or different. A few roast chickens, a lentil dish, pancakes, spaghetti. But my zest for kitchen life is finally starting to get nudged out of its dormant spell. I got lots of new cookbooks over the holidays, and am currently catching up on an "America's Test Kitchen" marathon on TiVo. I think Julia Colllins just said "piss" instead of "pith" while making sangria. Now she's making paella--I am so making that someday soon.
