It had been on my mind for years to make a Spanish tortilla, which is nothing like the tortillas familiar to most Americans. It’s basically a frittata that features potatoes.
I usually have at least a few cookbooks out from the library. They inspire me, entertain me and provide me with a stockpile of recipes to try. Checking out new cookbooks is also a good way to keep up with food trends. You’d think I’d have enough recipes by now, but I can’t seem to stop. . .
I love all kinds of curry: Indian, Thai, Pacific Island, Caribbean. Just give me a bib and a spoon.
I decided about 10 years ago that Joe and I needed to try Brussels sprouts because they are healthful. We weren’t entirely sure we would like them, based on vicious rumors that they are bitter and strong. But I found a recipe that used frozen petite sprouts, half-and-half, garlic and nutmeg. (What was that about healthful?) We were sold. Now I make it with fat-free or reduced-fat “half-and-half.”
