still here, don't worry!

I am sorry for the lack of posting this week. I have been doing a bit of cooking, but everything had the added ingredient of FAIL it seems. Even this seemingly simple Bittman recipe didn't work out for me. I tried it a couple times, and both times they were denser than I anticipated, and had a strange bitterness. I don't know if the fact that I found "chick pea and fava bean flour" instead of "garbonzo flour" made a difference? I mean they were edible and not bad at all, just not right, I don't think. So I got nuthin for you.

Fear not, though. I have lots of new cookbooks to inspire me, including one dedicated to fat, one dedicated to terrines, and one about making bread! Also, for my birthday I got a bunch more vintage cookbooks for my collection. So ironstef readers should have plenty to look forward to.

In the meantime, did you all see Jim Gaffigan's new special, "King Baby?" It was hysterical, and mostly about food. Here's a clip:
