My son gave me this:
My husband gave me a set of Santoku knives. Love these knives. It's like cutting butter when using these knives.
My son absolutely loves his copy of The Lee Brothers Southern Cookbook. Could it be that he misses southern food? I think so. Every now and then he'll call and ask about some southern recipe he is yearning for. One of the gifts we gave him was a t-shirt from Grits and Groceries that said, "Southern Cooking Keeps You Good Looking". Anyhow, he recommended one of the collards recipe from my new cookbook.
He even offered to cook some for dinner.
He is using my new knife and red cast iron enamel dutch oven.
Talking about cooking...I have been wanting to try the No-Knead Bread recipe from the New York Times. So to give my new dutch oven a workout, I decided to try the recipe. Hate to admit this but I have made three loaves and am presently in the process of making the fourth. I plan to make one every day this last week of vacation and freezing them. This recipe makes a very crusty, hearty loaf of bread. Boy, with some Happy Cow butter....
