I shamelessly stole this tea idea from Supper in Stereo.
Then I baked Blueberry Poundcake, a rerun recipe. My old Moosewood Cookbook is 16 years old, but it is an old standby. I love the way the Molly Katzen uses natural ingredients, without calling them local or organic – clearly these are words of the new millennium. Low-fat was hot in the early 1990’s, and the cookbook reflects lighter ingredients – less butter, oil and eggs.
I’m home after school when my kids burst through the door. My mom used to have fresh baking waiting for my brother and I upon our return, and now I do that too. I know it seems outdated.
But I like doing it. It must be the food = love thing all mashed in with my feminist sensibilities. I am a enigma. Wrapped in a riddle. Shrouded in a mystery.
