Magic out of monotony! It’s a beautiful way to express how the kitchen can be a place of wonder.

This article, especially the bit about being intentional in the kitchen and using all scraps, reminded me of Tamar Adler's An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace. That book changed how I view the items in my kitchen and the role a discarded onion skin or carrot peel can play in the ongoing adventure of my kitchen. Your new direction in writing is super exciting, and I look forward to it.

I am genuinely excited to read this. I get so much from your writing, and this is exactly what I love to hear about - the way food, cooking, eating comes into real, daily life.

I wholeheartedly applaud your decision and already know I will appreciate the planned change from straight recipes to β€œcooking and baking musings” in your weekly cooking supplement. A confession: I never particularly wanted to receive the Friday recipes, but I did want to honor your writing and the pleasure it gives me by (finally) signing up for a paid subscription.

Lovely idea! I do not bake often so I can rarely utilize all the hard work you put into those recipes, but I immediately made oven fries (so good!) and I used the 'weekday meals' piece recently for inspiration as well.
