No one who cooks cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generatiojns of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers. --Laurie Colwin
The following recipe is one of my favorites....It's a simple recipe...and good with coffee, tea, or a glass of milk.
